If he can do it, so can I...

Tyson just climbed this big orange thing, so can I (I think...)
I'm doing it all by myself (even if mom's right behind me)
Almost there, and I can see Tyson...I'll just put my head down and keep on climbin'...
One thing I've learned about having a "2nd born" is now that he's pretty much mobile, he thinks he can/should be able to do anything Tyson can. I find that Luke is doing things more quickly than Tyson did (and Ty's pretty physically ahead of the game). He sees Tyson do something and just does it. Like climbing this thing at the park, he climbed to the top, saw that Tyson went down the slide, and just headed down the slide himself. Lucas is fun (and scary at times) to watch grow and develop.

White Hot Summer Nights

Jim and I have been doing a lot of networking for our business lately. One of the events we were invited to and told we "couldn't miss" was an event put on by Young Vegas Business Professionals. Our first clue should have been that it was held at a club at The Palms. The second clue should have been that it was a theme party (like everything is at the Palms), and to get in everyone had to be dressed in white. Well basically it was a pick up some booty party and if it doesn't look like you'll score, you'll at least have your "business" to talk about. Needless to say, Jim and I already have obtained said booty, and after a while, ditched the party had some dinner and came home early. I asked our awesome babysitter to snap a shot of us before Jim took him home. And yes I did cut the hair, it used to be just above where Jim's hands are on my back. I'll have Jim snap some shots of it a little bit more close sometime soon. 

Buff Baby!

Jim and I try to do our workouts during the kids naptimes. But sometimes one of them wakes up while we're still working out. Sometime we give them a little 2 or 3 lb weight and they "work out" with us. Both of the surprisingly like to watch the dvd we use. Luke's showing off his "buff babiness" here.

"painted" face

In the summer time the only makeup I usually wear is mascara and lip gloss, I keep both in the diaper bag. We came in from "swimmin" in the kiddie pool in the back yard (hence Tyson's totally DORKY but uva/uvb skin protected duds) and during the 2 minutes I was changing Lucas' clothes and diaper, this is what Tyson did with mommy's makeup.  Little pill. Cute little pill though.

Cutie Lukey

I don't really have anything exciting to say. I just like the way Luke eats spaghetti and I think he looks cute in this picture!

Just an update on Tyson's "CARS" addiction. We (I) cut Ty off cold turkey from watching Cars 1 week ago. I had enough and he reminded me of a crack addict, he could never get enough Cars, all he could think about was Cars, and all he asked for was Cars. It was time for an intervention. The intervention has been a success so far and he is 1 week sober.
