I can do it myself!

Miles had a big boy moment... he kept swatting at my hands and trying to hold it himself, so I decided to let him have his way!  I could definately work with this!

**Last night Mason took off his diaper 4 or 5 times, and Micah finally had it.  So we stripped Mase and sat him on the toilet.  I kept worrying that he was going to fall in, but in less than a 2 mins he was going like a big boy!  He was more suprised than we were, and Micah is now determined to start working up to the big PT... aghhhh I'm not ready!  I want to wait until he is 3 and can communicate his needs/wants better!

***  I decided to trim Mason's hair ( give it some direction and shape without taking off the length)!  Micah was beyond thrilled that our friends and family agreed with him!

Moss Adams Summer BBQ

The summer BBQ was a success!  They held it at the Eugene Tennis and Swim Club, the kids loved all the activities!  The adults enjoyed all the food and good company!  Seriously, it was an awesome easy going party! 

I bought a new suit just for the occasion (and because my old one does not look good on me yet)

The Cranes made an appearance

Mason wouldn't hold still long enough for anyone to get his pic, he may be part fish!

To cut or not to cut...

I want so badly to cut Mason's hair, Micah has said absolutely not!  Its one of those times he refuses to listen to reason... I even compared our son to a Jonas Brother and he was still not budging!  So I leave it to you... the few people who follow my blog... should I cut Mase's hair?
Look at it poof up on top, and out the side... ugh it at least needs a trim!  Product can only do so much!

Look at how long it is... yuck!  No matter how masculine I dress him, people still tell me how cute my little girl is!

Can you smell it...

The stench of pigskin is in the air!  Micah insisted that we watch practise on Saturday.  Micah was so stoked to see the players and watch the drills... I was so thrilled I took the boys shopping in the bookstore! 

The boys were thrilled!

This is a sacred time of year for my husband!

Pure Joy

How incredibly precious these moments are.

Sibling... love?

I am not gonna lie, I love the idea of my kids wearing matching outfits (I attribute it to my Mormon background, and my OCD).  Micah doesn't love it so much, he thinks I'm just a little off my rocker!  I've only snuck one matching outfit past Micah so far... of course I decided to do a mini photo shoot (I'm embracing my lameness!).  Look how well it turned out...

Mason decided to bite Miles during this pic, that might be why its blurry
 (I was yelling "TIMEOUT" , leaning forward to grab him, and trying to push Miles out of harms way...all while not dropping the camera)

The beginning of "Mom he's touching me"

Look they are having as much fun as I am!

Pucker up baby!

Now if only I had done their hair and vacuumed
 (you win some, you lose some...most times I think its a draw)

All dressed up and no place to go!

The other day I was folding laundry on the couch and Mason decided to help.  Who knows why Micah and I were so zoned that we didn't notice what he was up to until it looked like this... he undressed (his clothes are on the floor behind him) and then redressed him self in my clean laundry the little stinker!

He has a pair of Mic's shorts, my undies, and my shoes on... he was whinning to go bye bye at the door, he just couldn't understand why we were laughing so hard!

I find him wearing my shoes alot, he has a real thing for my heels (at least someone is wearing them)
Peep toes, or for Mason Peekaboo toes!

McMahon Cabin

We were invited to spend the weekend at a ranch in Washington, with a group of our work/friends!  It was so much fun, sitting around eating and chatting.  The Crane's very generously offered to take Mason over night so we could go.  Thank you, Crane Family!! 

We such a good time, there was so much to do (having Miles along we did more watching than doing)  Meghan's cabin had quads, horses, a pool, rafting, golfing... it was the best "roughing it" I've ever done!  Meghan explained the cabins as very rough... we had beds, hot water, and cable...our kind of rough!
Kate holding Miles before she headed out to get her Tan on!

There was so much food, and Meghan is an amazing cook... we both gained a few over the weekend!

We shared a cabin with this cute couple, Anne and Andrew

Amanda, Kate, Porter, and our hostess Meghan! 

We can't wait until next year... who wants the kids?

Take me out to the ball game...

Our friends had some extra tickets to the Emerals's game and invited us along.  It was such a fun evening, we BBQ, got a sitter for all the 2 yr olds and headed to the park! 
As we entered the park, we were handed these flags... levi isn't the most flap in the breeze fabric

The Langworthy's...they invited us and hosted the BBQ

The Cranes made up part of our Posse!

Kristy held Miles the whole time... I pretended he was hers for almost an hour (it was awesome, until the blowout)

The halftime shows were great!  Did you know in Baseball there are 18 a game?

Thanks so much Cam and Kristy!  We had a blast and can't wait to go again!
