Cash's 1st Movie

As soon as I saw the first previews for Toy Story 3 I HAD to take the kids! I have always LOVED Toy Story and Cash loves Woody and Buzzy (as he calls him!). This was Cash's first movie and he did so good... the only part that he said anything was at the end when we had a minor meltdown that they couldn't just rewind it and watch it again! All in all it was a good time! =D

On our way and Cash asking, "Gurls you weady?!"

got the tickets and are good to go!

enjoying some sprite and ready for some popcorn!

and yes... I am that crazy mom with a camera that is documenting her child's first movie, don't judge! ;)

Cassi's 9th Birthday

I remember as a little girl every birthday my mom would go into the spill of "I remember x years ago today, blah, blah blah!" Well now as a mom I totally understand it. Where in the heck have the past 9 years gone? It seems like just yesterday I was holding my first born in my arms and now I can hardly keep up with my fashion diva! This year we had her first slumber party and she was so excited! Four of her friends showed up, which was plenty for me. The girls had a good time. They played charades, danced, made flip flops and bracelets, watched movies, ate pizza and cake... you know all the usual birthday party stuff! Cash already loved having his older sisters friends at the house and spent the whole time showing off! Then on Tuesday when the kids were back in school we had cupcakes with her class. All in all, I'd say she had a pretty good 9th birthday!

eeekkkssss, next year she will be double digits!

we knew we had to get tickets. We had so much fun!
In extra innings our Cubbies came through with a big ole W!
We didn't razz the family too much!

Since Cash is 110% boy and loves every sport, Kurt wanted to take Cash to play on his old high school football field. One technical difficulty... the gates were locked!

Finally... They're in!!!

playing on the field!

So I have finally shuffled through the hundreds of pictures that we took to show y'all the best ones! We had an absolute blast in Chicago, it was a much needed, much overdue vacation! I fell in love with the city, so you may find us there in our retirement years! And of course we loved seeing our Cubbies in action, we will actually be seeing them again this weekend when they come to Arlington! More Cubs pictures to come! xoxoxo
