Happy Birthday Mom

People would pay great amounts of money to not have to deal with all the things you have.  You really are WONDER-WOMAN.  Happy Birthday to the best mama out there!

Happy Father's Day 2011

With my Heavenly Father's help I hand picked this guy to be my eternal companion.  One of the things that hooked me the most was just how wonderful he was with kids.  I wanted my kids to have him as their daddy.  Kaige is one lucky kid, and these pictures of him in his daddy's loving arms capture some of my favorite tender moments.

Baby Monet

Isn't he cute?!?!  This is the first art project he made at his first class he is taking through the city.  He was in heaven as he got to use all the things I try so hard to keep away like scissors, glue and markers.  He was still grinning from ear to ear after we got home.  He couldn't wait to show daddy his masterpiece.

I'm a big kid now!

Kaige loves to do everything himself.  Get his own water and ice from the fridge, put on his shoes, buckle his car seat AND put on his own sunscreen.  He is quite pleased when he can do things all on his own.

Wildlife World Zoo May 28th, 2011

My sweetheart decided that it would be fun to take the family to the zoo on Saturday.  I was thrilled at the idea but didn't think he was serious since he was working Friday night until 6:30 Saturday morning.  But to my pleasant surprise he was serious.  It was Kaige's first time to the Wildlife World Zoo and he already anticipates his next trip.  We had a great morning together.
Penguin feeding.

The animals at the petting zoo went a little crazy!

I don't always get the opportunity to have pictures with my little man.
 Kaige wasn't all that impressed with the Bird feeding, but one day he will think it's as cool as I do.
 Feeding the giraffes is always the highlight of that zoo.  Kaige isn't sure about that long wet tongue.

Qadry's Graduation May 26, 2011

It's almost been a month since my little brother graduated from high school, but Kaige still mentions Tree Tree's graduation often.  I think he really liked Qadry in his cap and gown and playing with his cousin Kortin.  My emotions were on the surface as I sat in the audience.  My BABY brother was graduating high school!  This is unreal!  I am quite proud of the responsible young adult he has become.  As I sat in the same auditorium as when Qie graduated I couldn't help but remember this is where I sat next to my Grandma and Grandpa Jenkins.  It was there that I took the only picture of Kaige that I have with his Great Grandpa Jenkins.  Change has always been hard for me, and Qadry trying to grow up on me is more change than I would like.  I will be a basket case on Kaige's graduation day.
