Back to School!

Not for us (thank goodness! We still have a few weeks to go!) - but the office staff at the boy's school was back at work starting we baked up some apple cupcakes to take in to the principal and secretary (and anyone else that happened to pop in). They turned out awful cute, didn't they?

Echo the Gecko

Andrew's 8th birthday gift arrived a little bit early. This is a baby crested gecko - just a hatchling (a few weeks old, maybe). He's awful sweet, terribly cute and eats nasty crickets. Andrew is crazy about this new pet - he takes incredible care of him and is very attached (quite literally - I have to tell him to set the poor thing down before he loves it to death!)

Matthew is much more squeamish about the new reptile (and dozen crickets) sharing his room...but he's a good sport. He even has his own plastic 'gecko' that does tricks.

We've been out...

I have a slew of pictures to share one of these days (maybe after my final?) but for now...a picture from each of my latest adventures...

A wedding with my handsome guy...

And lots of pool time with my little sweeties...

Stay tuned...loads of Black Butte vacation pictures to come!

Just hanging out in BB. Have tons of pictures and stories to tell, but will save it for home once we are no longer on vacation. :)

Skinny Dip

There's nothing like an after dinner skinny dip in the summertime. There was something going on between Matthew and the drain plug, hence the gush of water between his legs!

Cool Kid

Andrew woke up, decided to get onto the computer and look on YouTube. He found 'how to make a paper gun' and worked on it almost all day. By bedtime, he'd created this monster (and used a whole roll of tape!) I was so proud of him for being so resourceful, creative and independent. I can't believe my baby is about to be 8 years old! This momma is proud. :)

Stock Up

Gatorade was on some super sale today! Plus, Murphy's Law says that if you're fully stocked on Gatorade and Saltines, nobody will get sick! Ready for a fun, sunshine and family-filled weekend!
