Granny Rae visits Tampa

This past week, my mom was in town visiting. We took a trip to the beach, ate at some good restaurants, and had a 1st birthday party for Colt. Here is the week in pictures :)

Since Colt loves to hum and sing along with music, we had an American Idol birthday party. We played Rock Band and had a yummy cake.

Some of the girls (before we got booed off stage) ;)
Colt wasn't real sure about the cake at first, but he figured it out pretty quickly...

...but eventually everyone staring at him and laughing at his cuteness, wore him down. "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to!"

Since we hadn't seen my mom since Christmas, we went to a nice part of our neighborhood and took some family photos:

Here are some pics of us at the beach:

Yes, you see correctly... my little boy is WALKING. And he walks like a champ. I'll try to post video soon.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

So we've been a bit busy, thus the lack of posts. Also, we took a trip to Marble Falls for Memorial Day, and I took a camera with a dead battery, so that really hurt the amount of pics I could take! Anyway, here's a recap of May with a few pics stolen from Sara Hejl and Sara Watterson's blogs. I guess we'll start out of order... here are pictures from Memorial Day weekend. Jay and Ally brought their boat to Marble Falls and we had a blast (in between bouts of some virus that Colt gave to everyone... sorry about that guys!).
Here are Camden, Chase and Cooper

Colt rode on a boat for the first time. He liked the wind in his face, but wasn't real sure about the life jacket.
We also attended a birthday party with a petting zoo. Colt kept petting/hitting the bunny, but the bunny thankfully didn't seem to mind. The party was for the kid of my chiropractor... Totally Chiropractic in Tampa. Check it out if you need some structural loving.
Enthused to be riding the pony
We also headed to a Rays game vs. LA Angels. Ty caught a fowl ball hit by Vladimir Guerrero while holding Colt in his other arm. We had someone tell us they saw us on tv :)

Ty and Colt petting sting rays at the Rays stadium.
On Mother's Day we ate at Jason's Deli with our good friends the Ernsts. We all had ice cream for dessert and Colt didn't want to be left out. He dove right towards Ty's cone and LOVED every minute of it! So much for my resolve not to give Colt sugar till his 1st b-day cake :)

Well, that's about it for May. Hopefully I'll be better about posting in June. Sorry Mom!
