Date 7 of 12

 To see our previous dates click here :)
Our July date was kind of in two different parts

The first part was on our trip to Branson we got to have some time away from the boys while Mike's parents watched them in kiddie land and go on some adult rides :) It was a lot of fun and something that we hadn't done in a long, long time. We rode all of the big roller coasters at least twice. It was nice that most of them didn't have a long line. :)

 In the picture below, Mike looks thrilled, huh?! :)
We were stuck this way for awhile at the end of the ride since a squirrel ran across one of the sensors and shut down the track. :(

Then towards the end of the month we got to head out and see Batman Rises for the second part of our July date.

Lately I've been taking some pictures for friends and I absolutely LOVE it! I know I am not a professional, nor do I want to be, but helping out friends and family to get a few shots of everyone...that I love.

Here are some recent ones...

Wordless Wednesday

We made some new room changes...we tried to have the boys share a room. We put Evan's new bed together, moved the crib over and reorganized the closet. It actually worked pretty well for 2 nights. They were both excited, but with Alex still getting up throughout the night and crying himself back to sleep (and up around 5 or 5:30 am) he was waking up Evan. Even though the crying was less than 5 minutes, it was enough to wake E up and then him yelling that Alex was too loud. So...we rearranged again and they are now in the opposite room they used to be in.

Getting ready...

The before (this is what it looked like for 2 days)

This is after the two days ;)

Happy boys :)
