My new favorite picture!

I just cannot get enough of this picture! I have the cutest, funniest, sweetest son ever!

The weekend ahead...

Tomorrow Tony and I are headed to Canada for a baby free weekend. I am definitely going to miss my sweet boy, but I am SOOO excited to spend some quality time with my husband. Although we wish we could afford to stay in a hotel, we will be camping to save money. I really don't mind though. It'll be nice to just be in the middle of nowhere without all the distractions of daily life. We plan to do lots of bike riding, laying out on the lake (hopefully it'll be warm enough), and taking a day trip to the nearby hot springs. I can't wait! And Anthony will be home getting spoiled rotten by Grandma and Auntie... lucky him :o)

Tony is out of Town tonight and Anthony is sleeping... this means all is quiet for me. After being out of town 3 of the 4 past weekends, and cooking ALL day for Tony's birthday dinner yesterday, I am thoroughly enjoying just sitting on the couch and watching the Olympics. I'm also going to go to bed early tonight and read... one of my favorite things that I hardly ever do. I think I'm going to go make some tea...

Sun Lakes

This past weekend we went camping at Sun Lakes. We had a great time and enjoyed just being out of the house for a couple days. During the day we spent time out on the boat, eating ice cream, and just enjoying the sun. Anthony was awesome the whole trip, except for an hour and a half of screaming while he protested a nap. The two nights we spent there were definitely interesting with rain and thunderstorms the first night and crazy high winds the second night. During the day though it was beautiful and that's really all that matters. I was able to wake board one of the days and I was so proud of myself to finally make it across the wake. Especially since it's been a couple years since I've gone. Tony was able to go a lot... He's getting so good!!! Anthony and I both love watching him. Here's some of my favorite pics from the trip:

TGIF... or maybe not

Tonight is Friday night. That used to mean something. Friends would be coming over or we'd be going out somewhere. I'd have a reason to get all fixed up. Not that I've let myself go or anything. I just miss getting all dolled up sometimes... like tonight. Instead I've got big plans of cooking dinner, cleaning the house, scrapping wall paper off my bedroom walls, and tending to a very cranky, teething son and a tired husband. Instead I wish I was putting on some hot shirt, my new jeans, some heels, and heading out for a drink and some dancing with my girlfriends. Too bad none of them live here.

Well, it's about that time to start cooking dinner....
