Tats, Graffiti, Sittin' and Fishin'


Little Skylar hit another milestone...she can sit all by her lonesome! (c: It makes her look so big! *sniff* But she is still my little baby and has decided that anything that gets close to her gets grabbed. I must say it is a little annoying, Caden was never a grabby/touchy-feely baby, so I don't have a lot of experience with the evasive manuvering yet. The picture of her and Caden is of Caden holding her hand and her laughing, a very fleeting and rare sweet moment, so I had to catch it on film.

Just a little of what we've been doing to keep ourselves entertained...Caden got a bike "tattoo"...I have no idea why he was licking it...but it was funny. One of his favorite activities at Grandma Lisa's house is mowing the grass on the riding lawn mower...I can't imagine why, could it be because it requires machinery???

Yesterday we decided that we should drive through Placitas and up the back of the mountain. It is a GORGEOUS drive and we hadn't done it in a while so we packed up the little ones and headed out. When we got to the picnic site, we were so furious to discover that the gate was closed and locked because some JERKS had graffitied all over the bathrooms and everything else. ***Grrrr...*** Sometimes I just hate stupid people. But we parked outside the gate and hiked in because we had promised Caden he could "fish" in the stream. He had so much fun just casting out into this stream and reeling it in...but after a while he did catch on that he wasn't actually catching anything! But it was just one of those just nice and relaxing afternoons with the fam...

They are so cute, Aubrey! I love that he didn't get that he wasn't actually catching anything for a while. :)

So cute! I love the one of them holding hands, too precious.

That IS a tender moment with them holding hands. What a big girl Skylar is to be sitting up. I got a kick out of Caden licking his tattoo.

That is so funny that he is licking his "tat". We have never been to the aquarium before we should go with the kids one of these days.

Wow! Both of your kids have grown a lot in the past couple of months. It's interesting having your second child, isn't it? Ali's personality is nothing like Kasen's so I have to learn a whole new way to parent her. Your relaxing day by the stream sounds so nice!

Um, so I just typed a comment but I don't know if it got sent to you, the computer did something weird. Anyway, in case it didn't, what I said was....
I can't believe how fast Skylar and my little C-dawg are growing up...and I'm not there for it! *tear*. They are so adorable and Caden just cracks me up that silly boy!
