OH MAN there is SO much to catch you up on...


To my family, friends, and close bloggers, life has been crazy and I am now back to continue what I love...sharing lifes memories to all who love to read, catch up, and follow the everyday life of a busy mommy and a beautiful baby boy while daddy is away saving the world:)

As I said, life has been crazy! I am now feeling much better and back into the daily routine of being me! I feel overwhelmed writing this post, because I feel like I have so much to catch you all up on. I mean look at the last time I posted over a week and a half ago...CRAZY! Ok so where do I begin????

1) I started a photography class in Seattle, WA and am sooooooooooo ready to learn learn learn all I can. It's amazing how much more you can do with a camera after you learn how to use! Actually, I knew how to use my camera, but didn't truly understand it. Although I am not an expert...yet, I am following my passion to learn the ins and outs of Digital SLR photography. I'll keep you posted on how it goes, but for now, I will share a bit of my most recent work!

Our homework assignment for week one, was to take something and put it where it did not belong. I had a blast (not really) hauling this chair about 500 yards to the railroad to shoot it where it did not belong...let me know what you think:)

2) Austin and I started swimming lessons and Kindermusik last week. Kindermusik is a uniformed music program that is taught throughout the U.S. to encourage preschoolers to interact through music and play. It's a great program and if you are interested in checking it out or to find a teacher near you, check out the Kindermusic website at

I'll get some pictures up soon, but for now I am enjoying watching my little man interact with others while doing what he loves!

3) We are now in Kentucky visiting family and joining in on the big birthday surprise. I have been hiding out for the last couple of days to surprise my brother in law at his well surprise 30th birthday party this evening....Man we got him good! There was about a crowd of 60+ people who gathered this evening to surprise my brother in law who thought he was coming to play a the gig was on him...he was stunned!

To my sister in law Bethany you did a great job pulling this off:) You GO GIRL!!

Also, while I have been in Kentucky, I have been able to hang out with some of my very close friends. While hanging out, I decided to take some shots of my girlfriend Allison's little boy...isn't he sooooooooo cute!

4) Well while we are still on birthdays....hehehe! Mine is next week and it's my golden birthday...can anyone guess??? :)))

OK, well I guess that's it for now...I hope you all have enjoyed the update! Have a great weekend and I'll see you all back here soon...I promise:)
