The Proud Papa

Ok, Ok, I know Father's Day was a few weeks ago, but I just needed to share a picture of Jason being such a proud dad and wearing his tie that Tab made him for Father's Day!

Hey, It's Summer!

So what else do you do but play in the hose? This was Tab's first experience with playing in the hose. He just loved it. He got into my flower bed and was covered in dirt, so I not just hose him off. He just loved running around while I squirted him with the hose.

I think that I had about as much fun spraying him with the hose as he did running through it. I think that this is just the beginning of a long life the summers and running through the hose! Here is one last picture just for good measure.

Exercise....It does a body good!

My best friend, Kimberlie, and I have started "working out" together. I am beyond excited. We tried to start a few months ago but it was a big flop. But now we are both committed. I'm sick and tired of feeling out of shape. I think that I'm in the worst shape of my life right now. I guess by writing out our plans on here makes me even more accountable.

Our plan is to exercise and lift weights three days a week. Who knows maybe we'll work up from there. We do it at 8:45 PM, so I have a chance to but Tab to bed. My goal is to be able to run a 5k by the end of summer. Not that I necessarily will run in a 5k, but I want to be able to.

All I can say is that after two days of exercising, I can feel it. My abs seem to have somehow taken the most abuse. But just knowing that I'm starting to kick my butt into shape gets me pumped!

Happy Birthday to my BUG!

I know I know, I'm way late, but Happy Birthday Tab! He turned the big 1 on May 25th. I'll appologize in advance for the tons of pictures to follow, but he is just too cute. We had a little party with cake and icecream for him. It was a lot of fun with family and friends. I had a lot of fun making his Bug Mountain Cake. (Thanks for the suggestion Amber)
It was a lot of fun to make. And who knew it would take over an hour to cook a cake in a bowl?

As you can tell he was a little hesitant to touch the cake at first. I think that he thought that he was going to get in trouble if he touched it.

So Dad decided to help him dig in by smashing his mouth into the cake. At first I thought that there was going to be a melt down as he wanted to help himself to the cake. But then he got a little taste of chocolate and it was all over. He learned to enjoy.

He had more sweets in one evening then he has ever had in his life. Dad spoiled him rotten. He had a HUGE, I mean a HUGE HUGE HUGE piece of cake. That I might add he ate quite a bit of. Needless to say he didn't get put to bed until 9:30 and then he was awake just talking to himself in his crib for over an hour! He just kept talking and laughing at himself. It was hilarious.

Witness the piece of cake Dad gave him! (Sorry it stopped letting me post pictures)

And Finally, the cleanup. Not Tab's favorite part.
