Vegas, Baby, Vegas!

Steve and I decided to take a quick vacation before my mom and dad left on a mission, so they could take care of Gavin. So my wonderful mom (dad was hunting) stayed with Gavin, and Steve and I went to Vegas. We had a ton of fun. I think the best part of the whole trip might have been the drive without a child in the car. We just listened to Harry Potter on our i pod and drove with no interruptions. Those of you with kids know what I'm talking about. We just hung out at the pool, saw a comedy show, walked The Strip, and hung out with some old friends (see slide show). We had a great time. Thanks Mom!

Let's Put It To a Vote

Today was picture day and a couple of weeks ago I decided that I was going to get Gavin's hair cut short right after pictures. But I took him to get a trim a week before pics and the lady totally butchered him. Luckily I was able to find a neighbor to clean it up, but I was still very unhappy about it being cut so short, b/c I wanted at least one school picture of him with his long hair. Anyway the point of this story is that I can't decide what to do now, so I'm putting it to a vote. I know many of you have very strong opinions on this matter (Grandma Gibby) so if you want your opinion heard then place your vote. Long, in between, or short (I don't have a picture of him with short hair so you'll have to just imagine it). And remember your vote counts;-) P.S. Don't pay attention to his cheesy smile, just look at the hair.

First Catch

Steve and Gavin went on their first fishing trip. Gavin was having lots of fun with his daddy until he actually caught a fish. He was just sure it was going to jump right of the line and bite him. Steve tried to take a picture of him by his first catch, but Gavin wasn't having it. If you look closely at the picture he is crying and trying to hide from it. But all in all Steve counted the trip as a success, because for the most part they had a great time. Plus they caught that HUGE fish ;-)

Gavin's 1st Day of School

Gavin was so excited to go back to school and I was too, of course. I mean two free hours three days a week! But the day of, I started getting a little anxiety for some reason. And on the way to school Gavin said "Mommy are they going to like me?" and that just about broke my heart. I hate that he has already started worrying about things like that. Anyway, when he went into his classroom and saw his teacher and the other students he was so excited he could barely hold still for the picture. I was just so proud of him. He seemed so grown up to me. I don't know what came over me, but I walked out of there bawling like a baby. Where did that come from? You can never truly understand the phrase "they grow up too fast" until you're a parent. They grow up WAY too fast!!
