Just For Fun....Sorry Cole!!

Attack of the Birds

I had to add this photo from our vacation. It is too funny...the birds really weren't attacking Cole but it sure looks like it so I wanted to share!! I'm not really sure what he was doing but knowing him.....complaining!!

Catching Up-Part 1

Summer Vacation 2008-Aransas Pass

I am going to have to play "catch up" for a while since the computer went down so I am going all the way back to the Summer time to post some of our pics. These are pictures of our trip to my Aunt's house in Aransas Pass. It was Cole's second time to go to the beach and Kylie's first time. As you can tell from the picture below she enjoyed the sand the most!! What is it with babies and sand?? We couldn't keep her from eating it. I guess it bulks up her immune system! She however did NOT like the water and wanted no part of it and let us all know about it. Cole on the other hand was even more brave this year which scared Mommy a little bit. We also hit the really cool water park just down the street from my Aunt's house but I didn't include those pics.

The kids really loved the birds and of course the birds REALLY loved the kids. Can't you tell? I had a hard time getting Kylie to stop eating the bread long enough to share with the birds. That girl and her carbs. All in all it was a fun trip and always good to visit with some family that I never really knew growing up. We hope to be able to visit every Summer.

A New Start with a Derby Race

Life has been really crazy lately so blogging has taken a back seat. First my computer crashed and then I started working part time. Once I got the computer back up I just felt so overwhelmed with how much I had not blog that I just let it all go.

I guess a good Pinewood Derby race is as good of a start as any. Cole's Cub Scout Pack had their annual Derby race this past Sunday. It is funny how a little car develops from just a block of wood. This is a picture of Cole's car and trophy. Rob made the car so it could sit on top of the trophy but still be able to take it off so Cole could play with it.

Cole with his trophy and car after the race. He was a very proud little Cub Scout.

Cole's car is in the red lane and was neck and neck with the yellow lane car. He actually "won" first place in this race. Everyone got a trophy though ;) !!
