Shorty on the Go

Cruz is growing up so quickly.  Definitely no babies in this house anymore.  It makes me a bit sad.  He wants to do everything his big brother does.  Build forts with the couch cushions, wrestle on the floor with daddy,  eat candy and junk food...and the list goes on.  He also loves to tick his big brother off.  When Bo is building towers with the blocks, Cruz will charge over to them and swat them down.  Or if Bo is trying to watch a show, Cruz will get right up in his face to get his attention.
He loves to go outside and attempt to eat rocks, and he constantly tries to take off down the road. Thank goodness we live in a cul-de-sac.  This picture says it all.
 What mom? Did you catch that on film?
 So darn cute.
They've both kept me very busy lately, along with lots of other stuff going on.  But they're both very good boys.  I wish life would slow down, so we could enjoy this time more.

Carrie Underwood

Way back in April, my sister, some friends, and I bought Carrie Underwood concert tickets.  Well, the day finally arrived this week, and it was well worth the wait.  We all thought she put on a very good show.
Here's the evening in pictures....

Cruz and I waiting outside for my ride to arrive.

My sister, Jamie and I before heading to Kylie's house.
We met up with Kylie and Jenny at Kylie's house.  Kylie was kind enough to be our DD :)
We decided to get dinner and drinks downtown at Playa Azul and just happen to run into some of our good friends that were headed to the concert also! 

The arena doesn't allow dslr's so I had to bring my piece of poo camera.  I was so mad at myself when I realized there wasn't a memory card in it.  I had a limit of only 9 pictures!  If you know me, I take millions of pictures, so this was super hard for me!  Here's Carrie, if you can recognize her through the graininess!

 We had the best seats yet since I've been to a concert at the new arena.  Good times girls, we need to start planning our next evening out, even if it's six months in advance!! :)

Decisions, Decisions....

Not that these decisions hold great importance, but they are still decisions.  We got out the Halloween tub the other day and tried several costumes on Mr. Cruzie.  Flippin adorable.
And my personal favorite, but obviously not his...

So, the other day Bo wanted to call his cousin Landon to see if he could come over and ride bikes.  Bo had been in the house all morning playing on the computer, so I told him if Landon came over they had to play outside and ride bikes or something.  Trying to be sneaky, Bo calls and immediately says something about playing games (on the computer).  As I can hear only Bo's side of the conversation, I hear him say something about Candyland.  
They get off the phone and Bo runs out side to watch for Landon walking down the road.  Several minutes pass and I finally decide to go out and check it out.  This is what I found on our very dirty garage floor.

As you can see, Cruz was as shocked as me. 
They had pretty much played a whole game by the time I came out.  Well, their version of the game anyway.
Cruz decided to take a seat and learn a few Candyland tricks.

Bo won the first (and only) round.  He was pretty stoked.  If only they would entertain themselves like this more often.  You know, in a non-violent, calm, no running, jumping or hitting kind of way.

Just the Tip of the Iceberg

Recently, my cousin asked me to take her senior photos.  Her pics turned out really great.  After showing a couple of her friends they decided to recruit me to take some for them. 
Miss Sydney is just gorgeous, extremely photogentic, and had some really awesome ideas.  I am very pleased with how these turned out.  And this is only the tip of the iceberg. 

I love taking pictures.
