Hayden turned 18 on April 22. This slide show is dedicated to him. I am going to warn you that Hayden has never taken a bad picture-he is photogenic. We love you Hayden and can't believe it has been 18 wonderful years, we are going to miss you this summer as you leave for your great adventure in Juneau, Alaska.

This is Hayden peacefully sleeping on April 22nd the day of his 18th birthday but he is about to be woken up for the traditional breakfast in bed. The menu for Hayden was crepes of course.
This is where Hayden choose to go for his birthday dinner-yes the "Taco Wagon". It sits in the middle of a parking lot and the wind was blowing so hard we ordered and all went to our separate cars to wait for it to be made. The following pictures will let you know just how redneck a birthday can be in Idaho. We all ended up eating in separate cars and just smiling and looking at each other as we enjoyed that birthday dinner together!
Hayden and Greg. Greg invited all of Hayden's friends over for his birthday. They made waffles and rode skate boards on the half pipe in the back yard.
This year we did our Easter Egg dying on Thursday before Easter because on Friday Danny and Branae were leaving for Philadelphia for the summer, and Ashley is leaving for Provo on Sunday. Wow are things changing at the Shaum's. We had our first official cookout with Chicken and grilled veggies. Yeah I can't wait for summer it was so yummie. This year I bought two dying kits so we would have plenty and not wait for a color. Easter egg dying is always interesting at the Shaum house it doesn't take long for the tape and glue gun to get out and the creative juices start flowing.
Danny is starting to get into the swing of things. Some of the eggs he made said philly and APX of course-go Danny go!
This was the finished product of Ry that started cracking when he tried to pull off the glue. I think it looks pretty cool.
Ashley is the master artist recreating the famous painting of "A Starry Night".

In March Devin and Hayden took a trip to Washington D.C. They had a great time and was able to see a lot of places and people. Hayden has had an interest in the government since taking a class in high school. It was a good experience to see things up close and personal! The following pictures are the ones Hayden took-he and Devin had a contest I will publish some of Devin's later when he down loads them.
When Hayden watched the inauguration of O'Bama they talked about the mall and when he got to see what the "Mall" actually was. He was surprised. This is the Washington Monument right in the middle of the Mall.
The White house up close and personal! They were arrested just shortly after this picture was taken. (jk)
Changing of the guard at the "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier". Garett wanted to know what the name of the soldier was....
