Day 1 Trip Out West

I wish I could tell you about all of the wonderful shopping and sightseeing we did on this day...but then I would be lying! We arrived at the OKC airport at 5:30 in the AM. Our plane took off for Denver at 7:30.

We arrived in Denver and we were supposed to fly out at 11:30, but SURPRISE SURPRISE our flight was not delayed...but CANCELED!!! We stood in line at the customer service desk for a good hour to hour and a half to find out we would be leaving on a flight to Jackson at 7:30 PM. That means we would be stuck in the Denver airport for 12 hours! (With a 1 year old in tow)

We found time to some magazines and catch up on the latest celebrity ice around on the moving sidewalks...and meet some interesting new people from Alabama. Jase decided he can be friends with anyone! :) 

I will edit this post later with pictures of Jase on his first airplane ride as soon as I get some from Uncle Shelby. Check back tomorrow for Day 2 of our Western adventure!

Busy days...

We are back from vacation! We had an amazing time.

The last few days have been super busy with me trying to get my new classroom ready. I start back to work on Monday and he kids will be back Wednesday. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. 

I got all of my vacation pictures edited and I can't wait to share them with you over the next few days, but first here is a small teaser.

We went to the Bar J ranch for a real chuck wagon dinner.

We had a guided safari through the Tetons and Yellowstone.

And we went to Cody to the Rodeo!

Come back for more!

It has been a while since I have updated the main page of my blog, and I am leaving for a trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming on Wednesday morning, so I figured now should be the time! I plan on taking several pictures while we are gone so look forward to those! In the mean time here is a very pretty pic I have found on the net. Enjoy!

Papa and a Kiddie Pool...

I do believe Papa was proud of his grandson. He was so happy to see how much Jase has grown. He went to Wal-Mart and bought Jase his very own kiddie pool! 

Jase decided he liked it!

Papa taught him how to blow bubbles! Jase wasn't so sure about blowing them himself.

Papa also squirted water on Jase from a toy! They had all sorts of fun together!

Thank you Papa for my pool...I love it almost as much as I love you!

Mommy enjoyed every minute watching two of her most favorite boys have fun together. She can't wait to see them together again!

Road Trip!

This would have been a lot neater shot if my mirror was clean, but lets just say we got a "little" water on the way to Hot Springs...

Road trips...the glorious time in summer when you experience the wide open road with friends and family. Sometimes you have a set plan and schedule, and sometimes it gets thrown to the wind because of torrential downpours. 
My best friend Katie and I took my little boy Jase to Hot Springs, Arkansas to visit his Gran and Papa. We were all set to go!
All was well for the first hour or so of the trip...the the heavens opened up and unleashed their fury. It was raining so hard you could hardly see the front of the car, and what should have been a 6 hour trip ended up taking more like 8. Which was fine for the first 4 hours because this backseat driver was OUT!
He was actually a VERY good little boy. I can't believe he didn't pitch a fit the whole way...8 hours is a long time to be in a car seat.
I was enjoying the view...
and the company...
and the tunes...
 The beautiful scenery we experienced will not soon be forgotten.
Neither will the excitement of this little boy who was so happy to get out!

More from our trip to Hot Springs coming later this week!! Please leave a comment...send me some love...or hate...whatever moves you! ;)

Wet 4th...

Isn't this the most adorable little boy you have ever seen! 

We went with my mother and step-father to Lake Texhoma for the 4th this year. We were all geared up for some good food, great friends and family, and amazing times on the boat. Here is where I must stop for a moment of silence....

I have still yet to make it out on Lake Texhoma once this summer! It has rained cats and dogs every time I have gone! This time was no exception. It even rained out the big fireworks show on Saturday night. Well what happens when you have a whole crazy family cooped up in one little lake house all weekend? A little too much drinking and a lot of fun!
This is my little sister Jennifer and the current Miss Texas American Miss! She just won the pageant this weekend and will be going to Anaheim, California Thanksgiving weekend to compete in Nationals! Go Jaci Walker!!!
This is crazy poppa David (my step-dad) and my step sister Jordan. We love how silly they are!

This is a prime example of what happens when someone gets a little too much Captain Morgan in them...they sneak off to the dock next door and take crazy pictures with Mannequin Pirates. :) On the way over I walked into a light up palm tree and now have a nasty scratch and bruise to prove it :)

This is Shelby...he is an awesome photographer and future Brother in Law. He is crazy like me so we fit in nicely together...

By the end of the night this pirate ( I like to call him Gray Beard ;) ) became great friends! After all, what is the fourth of July without a little celebration of our freedom to have fun?

And last but not least, I truly am so blessed to live in America and be free to live the life I choose with my sweet little boy and amazing husband. I am so happy to be me.

Boys and Their Toys...

These are my 2 most favorite boys in the world. One just graduated from law school the other just started counting to three. One thing they have in common? They both love their toys! With a specific one in particuar...

This is my husband's latest toy. It was his graduation present to himself. (I tend to love it too, but don't tell him that.) He was so excited to get this car, a 1975 stingray, except he knew he wanted new wheels. Well, these said wheels finally showed up on our door step this week, and he took a much needed break from hours of studying for the BAR exam to put them on. 
This is where little Jase decides that he is a big boy and he volunteers himself to be Daddy's little grease monkey. I did not complain because let's face it I like to drive the cars not get dirty changing has to be the priss in me. :) 
He helped his daddy by rolling the tires where they needed to go. They were almost as big as he is, but he seemed to manage it just fine!
Then he made sure daddy had all the right tools. This is where he was handing daddy the tire iron that narrowly missed mommy's foot :)
He helped dad by making sure all the lug nuts were tightened correctly..."just one more turn daddy!"
Then it was time to take her for a test drive!

We had fun helping dad and we hope you had fun reading about it! Leave us a comment!

Michael Buble

I LOVE HIM!!!! His music is amazing and he is the best entertainer ever! If you ever get a chance to see him I totally recommend it! I was lucky enough to land front row seats to his concert in Tulsa and these are a few of my favorite pictures I got from the night.

Myself and Katie looking HOTT!
Party Pic!!!
"Oh! Michael I can't I am married!"
On the front row of the concert...we sat next to a really nice family from Tulsa! They bid on 16 tickets total just to make sure they got the best seats. We were really lucky to get the seats we did.
This is the group Naturally 7. The are a vocal play group. They sing A Capella and all of the "instruments" you hear are actually made with their voices. It is amazing!
...and here he is...the man himself...MICHAEL!!!!
I love this shot of Michael with the piano. He sat right in front of us and sang several songs. We were in heaven on Earth!
This could be my favorite shot of the night.
 A shot of me with Michael in the background...just so I can prove that I was really that close!
A really good shot of the stage.
...and last but certainly not least...Michael singing my favorite song..."Feelin' Good" We certainly felt good after this amazing night!

Thank you for stopping by...I hope you enjoyed the eye candy! Leave a comment!
