On September 15, 2009, Cicily and I will be celebrating 8 years since our commitment ceremony and on October 15, 2009 it will be 10 years since our first date. The road at times has been rocky but it has been worth it.

This is one of my favorite pictures.

Proud Mommy.

Mommy and Zachary~so sweet.

Some see a roller coaster...I see MY world!

I am blessed to have an amazing partner who is my best friend, partner and soul mate. Cicily is an amazing mother to our boys. I admire all that she is and all that she does. Thank you for the life that you have given me. You have made all my wishes come true. I love you Cicily and I can't imagine my life without you!

A play date to remember....

We went to the Hart's home for a play date.
Dimitri's Superman jump!
Zachary was amazing in the pool. He would jump off the
side with no hesitation.
Today, we taught the boys to say, "CANNON BALL" and jump in
the water. It sounded like Zachary would yell, "Animal", because
he would get so excited.
Kira jumping to her Mommy.
Dimitri taking a rest.
After swimming the kids got to play a little more and
we had a delicious dinner.
Too cute!
Zachary on a the wiggle worm.
Whoa, a first kiss!
Oh no, now it has become a love triangle.
Thank you to the Hart family for a fantastic play date!

Preschool 101...

Dimitri started preschool today.

Dimitri meets his teacher, Mrs. Dean.

Mrs. Dean gives Dimitri his tote bag.
This is a picture of Dimitri's classroom.
Dimitri gives Mommy a kiss goodbye.

This is a picture of Dimitri and his teacher Mrs. Dean after school. Now, as you can see Dimitri is in a different shirt after school. We were told that there was an "accident" when we picked Dimitri up from school. Apparently, he fell into the toilet and his shirt got wet. What a GREAT memory for the first day of school and a reminder to ALL~be kind and close the toilet seat. Too funny!
This is what Dimitri worked on in school!
We love you Dimitri and we are very proud of you!

Monkey see...monkey do...

This picture was taken after a LONG day of shopping. Neither one
of the boys had long enough nap and Zachary was exhausted.

Our little guy fell asleep sitting up in his bed. So sweet!

Meeting Cinderella...

Today, we went to Sophia's birthday party where
we all meet Cinderella.

Cinderella introduces herself to Dimitri, however, he is
more interested in riding the bike.

Zachary playing on the slide.

Dimitri playing dress up in a cowboy hat.

Zachary loves balloons.

As you can see, our boys had no interest in singing songs
and telling stories with Cinderella.

Our boys thought it would be more fun to play on the
bikes and scooters. Boys will be boys.

We hope that cousin Sophia had a Happy 5th Birthday with Cinderella!

Our spontaneous play date...

Yesterday, we went to Jungle Jim's with Dana, Colter and Hadleigh.
Here come the boys!

Colter and his mommy.

Colter, Zachary and Dana. Dimitri is in the cart behind them.

Look at our Zachary with his arms up in the air.

After Dana made Zachary feel safe riding with her and Colter, we decided it was time for Dimitri and Zachary to ride together for
the first time.

Here we go...

Colter and Zachary get ready for take off.

Colter is teaching his mommy to fly a jet.

Three cute little boys~

Hadleigh and Cicily. Hadleigh is so cute and we know that she is getting bigger but she is still tiny and she just makes you want to cuddle with her all day. Hadleigh has legs for days...her little legs are so long, it is so cute. We are pretty sure that this is were 90% of her height comes from. Beautiful, long legs and blue eyes... Dana and Eric need to keep a close eye her when she gets older, she's
a knock out.

Our sweet boy!

Colter introduced us to a new ticket producing machine.

All the boys seemed to have a great time.

Colter was adorable!

Thank you Rollins family for a great play date and for sharing your tickets with us. We need to get together more often to play.
