A Rare Photo

Since it's pretty official that Gabriel has given up the oh-so-wonderful nap that I was praying would last until his teen years, I was pretty tickled when he fell asleep watching a movie the other afternoon. So, I had to sneak a picture, since you just don't get pictures of sleeping toddlers.

Bluegrass Festival

The three of us ventured over to a Bluegrass Festival that was at a nearby park on Saturday. It was beautiful weather, and actually quite a bit of fun for Gabriel. They even had a train that went around the park.

Just a picture on the one is on it that we know (in case your looking real hard)

Gabriel's New Toy

We had Jonathan friend, Ameer, visit us last weekend, and Ameer plays the guitar. So, the boys went to a guitar shop to look for a traveling guitar for Ameer. Surprise, surprise, Gabriel came home with his very own REAL guitar! He was in total awe sitting outside with his guitar and watching Ameer play. UNFORTUNATELY, I did not get any pictures of Ameer. (Sorry Ameer!!)

Major League Ready!

We got Gabriel a tee-ball set, and he acted like a pro! Jonathan showed him how to hold the bat, and he hit them well. Then, he would get Jonathan to hit the ball to him and let him catch and throw it! I can't wait until we can get him into sports! Another year....

Water break
There is even a spot to hold his drink
Nice hit!! Check out that form! :o)
Game over

The Monster Attacks

Jonathan was just trying to give Bailey a little attention, and Gabriel took it as "tackle daddy time". Poor Bailey

Six Flags!

Gabriel was just tall enough to ride his first roller coaster! He got a little nervous at the first (somewhat fast) turn, but then loved it. And with as much as I love six flags (full of sarcasm) I guess that's where we'll spend some of our summer.

He had to be 36"!! Just made it!

Waiting for the ride to start

First turn...and going took him a minute to decide if he enjoyed it or not

Celebrity Spotting

I forgot to mention that we saw Steven Schirripa (a.k.a. Bobby from The Sopranos) at our hotel. They were making several short commercials, and we walked up as he was getting out of a car - so we took a quick picture before the security made everyone keep moving. :o)

Vegas Vacation

We had a wonderful time on our Vegas Vacation. Took in a couple of shows, met some new people, and just enjoyed the alone time. We got in kind of late the first night, but made time for a dinner at the Eiffel tower (since we were staying at the Paris Hotel) and watched the fountains at the Bellagio for a bit.

Dinner at the Eiffel Tower (a little sleepy)

This is Cary Mullen - an Olympian Skier now motivational speaker.
I'm right under the sleeping lion at the MGM Hotel. They were incredible!
We were on top of the Stratosphere overlooking all of Vegas. Here we saw an All American Superstar show with Elvis, Christina A., Tim McGraw, Rod Stewart and Micheal Jackson performers.

My big win!! :o)
