My handsome boy.

A couple weeks ago my mom and I took River to get his first "real" haircut. It was WAY over due! Bret and I would joke that our little girl had such cute hair.
I took this picture right before we left...

It was so dang cute to see him sitting in the little airplane chair with his cape on.

He was SUCH a good boy! I got to choose a dvd for him to watch, and they gave him a little sucker. He was happy as a clam.

The finished product. So handsome!

I just thought this picture was kinda funny. Wish I knew what goes on in that little head of his.

I would be lying if I said I didn't get a little emotional...when we walked in he was my baby, and when we walked out he was my little boy.
Sure do love this kid.

New pictures

Bret, River and I took a quick trip to Vegas last month to visit Jamie and her family. While we were there we had her take some pictures. They turned out really cute. She really does such a great job. Thanks Jamie! We love them!
Here are just a few...

Some G & G time.

Bret's grandparents were here from Oregon last week. We got to spend a few days together. Always great to see them! River was just fascinated by Grandma. She knows a zillion different nursery rhymes and songs, and when she would sing them to River he would just stare and smile at her. It was so dang cute!
Thanks for a fun visit, Grandma & Grandpa!!

Saying bye to Grandpa.

When I walked into the living room and saw this, I had to take a picture. So sweet.

Happy birthday, Bret!

Just had to say Happy birthday to the best guy I know! (This is a little late, I know.) Bret's birthday was Thursday...44 years old!!! I could say 44 things I love about him, or 44 reasons he's the best husband and dad in the world. Shoot...I could list a MILLION reasons! But I'll just keep it short and simple...
Happy (late) birthday, Bret! I love you! Can't even begin to imagine my life without you!

(PERFECT excuse to whip out this picture're welcome :)

Wheeler Farm

A couple of my friends and I took the kiddos to Wheeler Farm yesterday to have a picnic and see the animals. It was so fun (as usual) to hang out with my friends. I've known these girls since elementary school, and every time we get together it's always hilarious. I think River had a good time too. Of course, he was surrounded by girls...what's not to like huh?

Feeding the ducks...and each other :)

Those of you who know me, know that I am a HUGE Ellen DeGeneres fan...HUGE! Last week I was able to attend a taping of her show in California. THE funnest thing EVER! I went with 2 of my sisters...Melanie and Tamina.

After the show we decided to drive to the Hollywood sign. You can only drive so far and then you walk up a trail the rest of the way. It was pretty fun.

It was such a quick trip, but very fun...and worth every second!!

Such a big boy!

Last month we bought River a big boy seat! I love his new car seat...and I think he does too! I can tell he loves that he can see out the windows now when we are in the car. I love it when I look in the rear view mirror and see his cute little face watching the world go by. I can't get over how big he looks in it! I just have to keep reminding myself that he's not a baby any more.

I was a little worried that he wouldn't be able to sleep in his new car seat like he could in his infant seat. Guess he feels right at home!...
