Recent Pics

Yeah, yeah!! I know my titles are not very creative. Oh well, you can deal. These are just some random pics, mostly of Jamison since Julie has banned me from posting her pics.

In November we went to LA and got to tour the Jim Henson Studios. Thanks Jenna. While there Brian Henson's assistant took us around the lot. She took us to his office where we got to hold the Emmy for Farscape, I think it was. We also got to see the recording studio where such great bands as Metallica have recorded, and we visited the different areas and got to see some muppets and even try one out. Pretty cool...

So as you can see in the one Jamison likes Twinkies. I think its cause of the sugar rush... No the Twinkie is not visible with the exception of that which he didn't get in his mouth. It was funny to see him grub on it. I hope he remembers the taste cause it will be the last one for a while.

So, Rhonda bought Jamison a Moose at the Build a Bear place. He appropriately named it Moo. Well Moo is like a baby for Jamison and here you see him changing his diaper. Maybe he's ready for a baby brother??? And no I am not implying we are pregnant, just making a statement.

I don't really know how this got started, but I got this tunnel thing of his over my head and he decided to climb in. It is a great game for him I guess as he likes to rock back and forth while we are in there. He also is in a close proximity to my face and mouth which he likes to poke, pull and probe with his little hands.

This is Valentines Day breakfast, not the little heart shaped pancakes Julie made. We had bigger ones for us. It was really cute and he is getting into the holidays and noticing them more. I love my boys... I am proud of both of them and love the time I am able to spend with them.

Cincinnati Trip

Well, I am definitely not as up to date on this blog thing as Julie. However, I have finally remembered to update this thing while at home where all the pics are. In January I was able to go out to Kentucky to visit Zach. We spent the long weekend in Cincinnati and just hung out around there. We had a lot of fun and got to see some pretty cool stuff. The best part of the trip for me was to just spend time with him.

This is Zach on his bed at the hotel which was actually pretty nice. We had wireless so we could play WoW after our long days out and about. We also had a fridge that would freeze anything you put in it and the control was broken so you couldn't change the temp. It was fun to try to poor a drink out of a frozen gallon of water.

This one was outside the aquarium on the river. Unfortunately, his eyes are closed and my 2nd chin is making an appearance. It was bloody cold there and we snapped some quick pics before we went inside to defrost.

This is Zach in the aquarium. That is supposed to be a whale jumping behind him, but that didn't really turn out. Obviously, I am not a professional photographer. The aquarium was definitely larger than the one we have in SLC, and it was really cool. I think the worst part of the trip was when we went in to the bird section and one of the little buggers got Zach lined up in his sites and bombed him. Luckily they were little birds not a crane or something. Anyway, you can see pics of that incident and the feathery little culprit in the blog Julie does.

This one was when we visited the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. Since it was not that busy we got to take our time and just dink around at our own pace. This is from one of the World Series they won. It was a pretty cool place. We got to throw the ball from a pitching mound they had set up inside and it would tell you how fast you were throwing. Zach was up in the mid 70s, and mine was in the mid 40s. LOL, I guess we know which of us can actually pitch.

This one I think was at the Freedom center which we visited on MLK Day. It was very interesting and had some good presentations to explain the collaboration necessary and risks many people took to help slaves make it to freedom. As I said we had a good time, we went to the Dancing with the Stars tour which was really cool. Zach thought Laci was pretty hot, and I think that was why he liked this event. :-) Before the show we went to Benni Hana's and grubbed. We sat at a table with a couple and three women and the food was great. The same three women also sat behind us at the show. It was weird. Some other activities we had were going to Dave and Busters which is like a Chucky Cheese for older people, and it was pretty fun. We got to play a game that we used to play when Zach was 5 or 6. We also went to see a movie and of course we had to hit BW3s on the way to take him home. As always the trip was too short. I hope that he will be able to come out for a little bit this summer to see us.
