Elle's bangs are super long and she had begun rubbing her face trying to get them out of her way.  As you can tell she is not fond of the bangs.

Do you see the resemblence?

I think she was a little offended I compared her to Eddie... So a trim was in order or so I thought...

My cheaper side got the best of me and I thought "heck I can do this" right?!?

So I prepared my client who questioned my sanity...

Okay, so it is a LOT harder then I expected and took Colby and myself to rangle Elle and get the bangs semi even...

 After a bottle and a lot of consoling Elle was okay with it or should I say I was okay with it.  I plan to spend the $25 next time and have it professionally done... .

Hello Gavin

Sunday we headed down to Edgewood to meet Colby's cousin Sarah's newest baby, Gavin!  Sarah, Josh, and big brother Noah have a lot to be proud of!  Gavin is a heart breaker!

Elle wanted to walk but kept forgetting that she hasn't quite mastered it so we sat in the grass at the party and let her practice walking between us.  "Look at me!  I am with Daddy"

"Now, I am with Mommy!" 

Once Elle was tired of practicing we hit the swing.

Higher Momma!  Higher!

Rock on!!

I think they were strategizing how to get even higher!

Run Dadda, Run

Elle and I watched Colby pitch in the semi final's of his softball league.  It was a great game with the "Bad News Beers" advancing to the next round. 

Colby up to bat and looking to hit it far!

Wish him luck as tonight is the next round of play!

Father's Day

The past few months have flown by and I have been really bad about updating the blog.  Colby's first Father's Day started off with Elle and I making Daddy breakfast in bed.

Elle had to leave her signature mark on his card.  I was asking Colby last night what we got him for Father's Day and neither of us could remember... Sad, huh?

I didn't take any other pictures of the day but it was a great one over all.

Date Night, Date Night!

Colby and I went on a date!  YEAH for parents!  Grami and Poppi gave Colby a gift certificate for two tickets and parking for an M's game and Grandma and Grandpa offered to babysit!  Thank you to both as we loved our night out!!

Colby and I tried out the Elysian Fields Brewery before the game.

We had to try out the "The Mens Room Original Red"  it is brewed for The Mens Room Radio Show.  Our favorite radio show to listen to on the way home from work.  I think it reduces our stress level as we both laugh our heads off at the question of the day and bad joke Friday while driving home.

Cheers to date night!!

This is the only picture/video of the game.  It is the of the field crew dancing to "Hammer Time" while raking the field.  Apparently we thought it was really funny!

My sister Tracy told me about this Toyota ad and said it was hilarious.  However,  I don't think hilarious quite captures how unbelievably funny this this!  I almost want my own "Swagger Wagon"

"Where my kids at? Oh, cool beans!"

Do you have pride in your ride?

Happy 4th of July!

We headed over to Ellensburg for the 4th of July.  Sunday we saw Grami, Poppi, Tracy, Wes, and the girls off on vacation.  Once they were off, we picked up a flag for Elle in town to honor our country. As you can tell Elleanor is quite proud to be an American!

Hope you had a safe and sane 4th of July.
