Taking Maddox for a walk in the morning
Monday, August 10, 2009
This week I did NOT walk into the kitchen as see my son standing in the dog's water bowl happy as could be, with water splashed everywhere and his shoes soaked....how long was I out of the room????!
I did NOT get so freakin hot in the car in this 100+ weather that I had to take my bra off because I thought I was just going to melt and was getting super aggravated at how hot I was...and if this were the case (which in fact it was NOT) I most defiantly would NOT blog about it...who would want to read such a story...NOT me!
I did NOT put my son's shorts on backwards all morning and wonder why he was so aggravated in the car....they were NOT giving him a major wedgie...NOT me, I always have everything very together and would never not notice front pockets on my son's bum!
I did NOT clean out our ridiculously messy closet and find 3 pairs of shoes I completely forgot I had....I would never let things get so unorganized that I wouldn't know what shoes I owned!
I did NOT let Maddox play with a hose to the vacuum for over an hour just so I could get a few things done around the house...no no no, NOT me, it is always educational toy play in this house!!!
What about YOU.....what did you NOT do this week???

This is probably one of my favoirte pics from this week. We found this "awesome" outfits at Rue 21 and I thought they were hillarious so I insisted we try them on. They are all one piece, the neon zebra pring sewn to shorts...hahahha!!!
Our first night of baking....brownies!! Yummm...and the batter was even better! We visited Brad at work
Getting comfy on the couch, eating cookie dough, watching FRIENDS
Long morning walk to the park

Uncle J enjoying lunch on our way to Sante Fe
Maddox munchin' down on his cheese-less pizza after his bath (he was STARVING)
Me and my boy!!
We then loaded up on Monday morning and finished the drive into Pagosa Springs. Oh my goodness.....this cabin exceeded all my expectations!!
It slept 17 or so of us comfortably, had a game room, two of every kitchen appliance and a pool table. Out the back door was the nice patio that connected to a dock where you could fish, go cannoning or hang out on the pontoon boat. Not to mention the beautiful scenery all around us. My favorite part was the ability for all of us to hang out in the house, enjoy our meals together and be together throughout the evening....playing games, talking, and laughing.
My mom and Aunt Karla enjoying some time outside!
Sweet Granny watching the kids play
Uncle Gary pondering his next plan to pester someone I am sure!! Hahah!!
My brother fishing (no fish were caught this trip but it was not because of a lack of trying...Jason was out there for hours everyday!!)
Sweet little Mollie being her sweet little self
Uncle Gary showing Maddox his awesome juggling skills
Ahhh....a Sonic run!!! My cousin Kayley enjoying her double vanilla Dr Pepper (and me playing around with some settings on the camera!!)
Me and my cousin Kayley playing!!
Overall Maddox did really well....I was super impressed with how he traveled...he was a champ, especially on the way home, we only had to stop twice on the 9 hour drive home!! It did take Maddox a while to warm up to everyone every morning (we do NOT have a morning person on our hands), but by the end of the trip he was actually playing and laughing with everyone. He did test the boundaries and want to know if the rules still applied although we were out of town....but overall he did GREAT!!! He loves being outside, so every chance he got he was playing outside trying to find the fish, watch the ducks, laugh at the birds and pet the puppies!! Thank you to all of my family that was on this trip, you all were so good to Maddox, you were patient with him, loved on him and played with him every chance you had. Thank you for helping us create these fun memories for him!!!
Chillin in the truck wearing Momma's sunglasses!!!
