Last Minute Popsicle!

Aden got to discover the joys of the Ice Cream Truck! I was leaving for work and Chris and Aden were going outside to play, when we heard the chimes of the Ice Cream Truck! Now I have heard it around before but it has never come all the way to our house before....well the lady must have seen us outside and decided to come on down. Aden was all excited, although I don't think he knew why. I handed him a dollar and Chris helped him pick out which one to get.....well Aden picked a HUGE Popsicle! In fact he wore safety goggles for the occasion....would just hate to loose and eye to a tragic Popsicle accident. :)
From the blue grin and the sticky mess he made you can tell that this boy's first Ice Cream Truck experience was a complete success!!! The perfect way to end the hot days of summer!

Aden Loves Nemo!

I doubt you could ever find a more devoted grandpa than my dad. He has named his only surviving colt for Aden. Nemo is this cute little guys name and Aden loves him pretty well as much as he does the cartoon fish that is his namesake (if not more). I got this cute little picture on my cell phone and just thought it was such a priceless picture I couldn't not share it. Aden has the cutest smile under that pucker and Nemo seems to like the loves too!

Takes After His Mommy

So you have seen him fishing and hunting and doing things with daddy....but now it is mommy's turn for quality time with Aden doing something she loves!
As most of my close friends and family know, I have a real passion for all things artistic. From painting and sketching, to photography and digital scrap booking, I dabble in a little bit of everything. Well on Saturday morning since Chris had to work and Aden had spent the night over at Grandma and Grandpa's house, I was patient and well rested enough to get out the paints and let Aden dabble a little in the arts. I had some wood little figurines I got for 88cents at Wal-Mart and Aden went to town....notice the helicopter, train, and car on his tray plus he had enough paint and ambition left to paint a picture on some paper.....and himself....and his high chair.....luckily all the paint came off of all the subjects that were not meant to be painted :).

Happy Birthday Chris!

Happy Birthday Christopehr I love you!

Dove Hunting and the Unexpected Find

So Chris has had the opportunity the last couple of weeks to go dove hunting with a friend from work few times. He even takes Aden with him....who by the way LOVES it and even spots birds for his daddy to shoot and is excellent at doing what he is told while on the hunt. Every time he has gone he has come home with at least 2 birds sometimes more. The first trip they took Chris found something that wasn't a dove, but was a welcome site (to him anyway). He found a den of rattle most people this would be a bad thing....but not to Chris, who dreams of one day becoming a snake scientist (herpetologist). Any ways because they are poisonous and Chris isn't stupid he didn't even attempt to pick any of them up...he settled for a few excited phone calls and a couple pics with the cell phone to document the occasion.

Labor Day Outing

Labor day we took advantage of the beautiful weather and fantastic company and went to the Rochester Panel....for those who don't know, this is a panel of great Indian writings that takes a little hiking to get to. Aden hiked most of the way but spent some time on his daddies shoulders just enjoying the view. Tianna was a trouper! she hiked the whole way without being carried at all!
Dad is still recovering from hip surgery so he was missed but my Mom made the trek with us.
Aden is obsessed with Adelia....I think he might be ready for his little brother to get here.
Here is a good family photo...including the little bump that will soon be a baby :)
We loved spending the weekend with Luke, Mary and the girls!
Aden was so lovey and I really liked this picture....Tianna found a stick that she had to have in all her pictures.Adelia spent much of the trek asleep but was awake for some pictures and was a champ the whole time....not to mention adorable :D

A little over 2 and a half and he isn't a baby anymore.

So I made a sad discovery today....up til now I have been doing pretty well at getting some cute pictures of Aden for photo album and to share with family every mile stone....well today I relized I haven't taken any since Aden turned two. So today we did a photo shoot at a playground here in town and over at my Grandma's house. So here he is, not yet I guess I am still okay to call them his two year old pictures. The second startleing discovery I made was the fact he doesn't look like a baby anymore....he looks like a little man :( when did he grow up?

Summer Fun!

So I was going through some pictures and realized there were some from July that really were blog worthy but never got posted. They consist of some fun side walk chalk drawing and bubbles....out door activities that Aden LOVES and begs me to go outside and play with him.
