2008 Air Races

Can I just say that when you have kids you do things that never before interested you?? Air Races?? Does that sound fun to anyone else? When Yeadon told me that he wanted to take the girls to the Air Races, I was a bit skeptical. Not only did it not sound fun to me, but really... two kids under 3 watching airplanes fly around in a circle on a hot day?? Well, suffice it to say... It was a great day and we had a blast. (On a side note, Yeadon's mom moved out on Saturday and taking the girls to the races seemed to have helped the transition.) So in spite of my earlier thoughts on the Air Races, it turned out to be something I'd be willing to do again in the future (with different shoes, a comfortable chair to sit in, lots of water, something to eat...)

Reno Hot Air Balloon Races

So we decided to brave the dawn and get up at 4:30am to see the dawn patrol of the balloon races. FOUR THIRTY IN THE MORNING!!! Were we crazy??? At times, I wonder if we are... But, on to the balloon races. We got some decent pictures of the dawn patrol, and then... the batteries died on the camera. Such is life, right? So we didn't get any pictures of the kiddos all dressed in their snuggly clothes, but here are some pictures of some big balloons!

Labor Day Leisures

Yes, I know that it's a week after the fact. I know that I've been pretty remiss in my blogging. But... at least I do it when I can, right? So, here's some pictures of the girlies at the park. Yeadon knew of this great little park and after completing the work he needed to do for the week, we took the girls to go play. It was great! I love when we are able to spend time together as a family. Right now it seems those times are few and far between, but it's only for a season...

Oh, Yes, I did!

Can you believe how big my little girl is getting?? I was able to put her hair in french braids the other day... She looked like a big girl! We had some, um, well 2-year old moments trying to get her to sit still... But it was worth it! I'm growing her bangs out, cuz I just don't do bangs and I was getting a little tired of the same ol' hairdos... So I tried the braids and was thrilled.
