Okay - which one do you like better...this one or the one below??


I shot some photos the other day at the park. Zachary and I were there early so I shot some of him. This particular photo came out over exposed but I played around with it for awhile and I like how it turned out. Hopefully I'll be posting more soon...sorry I've been MIA.

My Son, Alex

12 years ago today I became a mother for the first time to a wonderful boy. He was born around five am and was placed into my arms. He was a beautiful, olive skinned miracle and we were so happy. Alex has been such a good first son. He is one of the four loves of my life and I wanted to wish him a very happy birthday today.

Yesterday I was getting Zach dressed for soccer; I was putting on his soccer socks when I noticed there was something on his knee. I pulled up his shorts a little and noticed a smiley face drawn on his knee. I said, "Zachary, what's this? Who drew on your knee?" (Thinking for sure it was going to be one of my older boys) He says to me, "I did Mom, that's Bob". Oh, silly me, that's Bob, of course it is...what???? I said, "Zach, does Bob talk to you?" and he said, "Yess(a) - he's my friend." Well alrighty then, there you go. I mean what can you even say after that. So...everyone, meet Bob...

Here is Bob close up. He's a very friendly fellow.

During Zachary's last game he played very intensely. He LOVES playing soccer and I just was loving the faces he was making during his game. He was so into the game. He got very frustrated every time the other team would score. They lost the game something like 8-2 and one of the goals was courtesy of the other team. Anyway, here is a picture of his intense play.

Zachary loves the Slushies they sell at the games. A few weeks we've had to substitute those for hot chocolate but this last Saturday the temperature was mid 70s and I have to say, we were all pretty hot. All the kids were sweating and we reverted back to getting slushies. Blue is Zach's favorite so here he is enjoying his bright blue slushie. On a side note, we went to Alex's game at 4:30 when the sun was going down. We were all in sweatshirts and blankets an hour later. Ya gotta love the desert. like this is why we LOVE living in Las Vegas most of the time. This week it's supposed to be low to mid 70s the whole week. I LOVE this time of year!!
