11 flippin' years old.

He was my first baby.

He's still my baby.

He wanted to be a cowboy when he grew-up. He was going to have a black horse named Riley.

I need to find Peter Pan and ask him how the Lost Boys never grow-up. I'll get back to you on that.

Because his birthday fell on one of the days for the 11 year-old Scout Camp, he got to go. But because he was also still 10 years-old for one of the days, Aaron got to go, too. Yay, Dad!

This is them at 5:15 yesterday morning. Look how adorable they are with matching puffy eyes!

They'll return all worn out and tired sometime around 9 tonight. Just in time to head over the mountain for the 4th. Kilt-o-Sac of FIRE!!!

But first, let's bawl together as we look at pictures of my baby.

Happy Birthday, Cowboy Corgan.

no more school

Today is their last day.
Actually, tomorrow is the "official" last day, but they're not going.

The next couple weeks are super, jam-packed with so many different things. 60 mile bike ride, two week road trip to Utah and Southern California, then 4th of July and Trek.

It's going to be crazy. Crazy awesome.

easy life

Morning time stories.

Evening time sprinklers.

And lots of love in-between.

bath time with friends

When you just shrug your shoulders and let them do it.

Before all of that dirty fun, these two went to the best Star Wars themed birthday party in all the galaxy. Oneil is still talking about it, and he didn't even go. That's how awesome it was.

6 month comparison

time doesn't ever stop, does it?






((he's like, 8 or 9 months in this picture. but it's the first digital photo we have of him.))

And for all you genetic geeks out there. Aaron has blue eyes; I have green. Our babies have brown, blue, blue, brown, brown, blue.

flashback friday

Here's what we looked like on Easter.

So fresh and so clean.

Also, we're in down in Oregon for the weekend.

You know. For that IPD Volvo thing we go to every. single. year.
