Wedge Pictures

We did a fun photoshoot out at the wedge....Such a great are a few of my favorites.

Random Cuteness Back in the Spring

So disregard the crazy mess in the background but I couldn't help but get this crazy cute picture of the boys with their "cool dude" glasses on. These pictures are from earlier this year and I never got them posted. You'll notice in the picutes Raleigh looks super little compared to what he is now. The bottom picture is after I cut Aden's hair ALL off....he cried afterward "I want my hair back!" I told him it would grow back...the next morning he informed me that it didn't grow back yet and he was very upset. Within a week you could already see that there was growth and Aden told me daily that it was in fact growing back :D.

June Photo Shoot

I did a little photo shoot with the boys in June for Mother's and Father's day pictures. I loved the bright colors of the playground equipment as a backdrop. The boys didn't mind the giant toys too much either :D

Long time No Blog :P

So I have taken a kind of break from all things blog, facebook, and pretty well everything. I would really like to catch up on the blog but tonight I just wanted to post a picture that I thought was SUPER cute and was just last week....probably the last chance for the kids to swim since October is just around the corner. I will try to fill in the gaps between Easter and now...wholly crap I'm behind, but until then enjoy this little postlette :D.

Raleigh's First Haircut

So a while back I decided that Raleigh's hair was getting too long in places. Growing over his ears and we gave him his first hair cut. Worried about how he would react, given that Aden still FREAKS out EVERY time we cut his, we decided Raleigh would go first and we would take it slow....well the experience could not have been more different from Aden's first haircut...
He smiled and laughed the entire haircut.He held very still and was an excellent little man.Here is the after shot....It isn't perfect but at least you can see his ears again :).Such a sharp looking little guy! I love it.

On other news with this guy, we just had his 15 month check up. He is 22lbs 12oz, 31.5" tall and very healthy. He is currently cutting more teeth and a little cranky about that and the shots. But he is doing great...I can't remember what we ever did without him and wouldn't want to try :D.

Super Bowl!

I have never been one who liked to watch sports....basket ball is the only one that I have ever watched willingly....but Chris mentioned that he would like to watch the Super Bowl...and because we don't have a lot of evenings together we decided to watch it together. And while I have to admit, that even though I went into it not really caring what happened and not really interested in the sport, I had a great time watching the game the commercials and the half time show, but most of all I loved watching my boys watching the game. Aden was more interested in playing and eating junk food than actually watching the game...Raleigh did some playing but what really surprised me was how much he loved sitting with his daddy and watching the game!
He enjoyed the junk food too...
Here he is pointing out a particularly good play.
It was so funny and great to have some family time.

Come Fly With Me

One thing that can be said about flying with kids, besides that is crazy expensive, is that the flight crew and people at the airport are SUPER understanding and helpful. With Chris being injured it was especially nice to have great help. On the way up they were so good to help us on the flight and get us seated first and on the way back they gave us an entire row to ourselves. The boys flew very well considering their age. On the way up Raleigh wouldn't sleep...he wanted to walk around and play and anything but sleep...but when we got their and his Grandpa took over holding him he passed out in Grandpa's was so cute. On the way back he sat with his daddy on the other side of the row and fell asleep almost at once. Aden was so excited to fly and was jumping up and down the whole time...he LOVED it so much and for days before and days after flying it was all he could talk about!

Our Trip to the Zoo!

One of our favorite things that we did while in Washington, apart from having a great time just visiting, was going to the Zoo with Grandma and Grandpa. As usual Aden loved the fishes...and Raleigh liked them too.

We took in a little show of the animals that they have trained to do some really fun tricks.
Raleigh spent much of the Zoo on Grandpa's shoulders...this being his first trip to a Zoo I think he loved seeing everything from up there!

We got a stroller for the boys to ride in between animals because they are way to heavy to pack all the time :)

Checking out the Elephants...

Raleigh LOVED them...he even tried to make the noise
Raleigh and his Daddy take a break in front of the penguins...sorry this was the cutest picture but you can't see the penguins very well.
Chris lifting Aden to get a better look.

Raleigh loves his Grandpa

A little Mere cat saying hello to the boys....they thought he was the coolest thing ever.
Aden was a little leery of the armadillo but Raleigh was all for giving him a pat!
what is a trip to the Zoo without a group picture! We had a great time and owe a big Thanks to Grandpa and Grandma for being such great hosts and taking such good care of us.
