It's a Bird. It's a Plane. No it's...

Not so Super Bryan! I did not tilt this image at all, it is of Bryan jumping on the trampoline and then falling down. He is such a goof!

Father/Son Silhouette

I finally got the chance to get a silhouette of Bryan and Little Buddy yesterday on Father's Day (how fitting)! I took some of Bertus and AlleyCat also, but I think they might go on my new website so I will wait to share them.

Homestead Days Fireworks weren't nearly as exciting as previous years, but Little Buddy really liked them. Normally they are held at Chautauqua Park, but this year due to flooding they held them at the fair grounds. This sounded like a great place to have it, but there were races going on at the same time. So instead of being able to sit on blankets and in lawn chairs and watch them in complete darkness, we sat with behind power lines and sheds in front of us, and street lights shining right next to us, while everyone in the race stands was able to sit in complete darkness and see them perfectly. Oh well there is always next year!

Fu Panda... is fa weet

Yep you read that right no typo there! We are heading out to see Kung Fu Panda (aka:Fu Panda in Little Buddy language) tonight with the fam! Upon hearing this Sawyer announced very loudly "Fa Weet", or Sweet in Little Buddy-ese! What do I get out of these deal? A clean van!

Gone Baby Gone

Miss Brainy got her cast off this past week. She is now in the boot for 3 weeks, she is suppose to put weight on it slowly and by the end of the three weeks she should be walking on it with her crutches. The Dr. will re-xray it and hopefully she will be back to normal, or as normal as she gets!

The nurse asked if she wanted to keep the cast and we both agreed that we didn't want that stinking thing anymore. I could not believe how bad it smelled, YUCK!
Miss Brainy requested that I not share the details of the funk and hair she had grown inside that nasty thing, and since I am such a nice mom I choose not to. OOPS!

P.S. I love you

I had been hearing so much about this movie and how great it was I decided to buy the book on Wednesday while shopping with Miss Brainy. I came home and started reading it at bedtime (Bryan had control of the t.v. watching a cubs game). I didn't put it down until 3 a.m. when I finally finished. I love this book, it may not be the best written book I ever read (the author was only 21 when she wrote it) but man did it suck me in and make me cry! Bryan acted slightly surprised when I cuddled up to him at 3 a.m. and bawled like a baby, but by now he knows how much of a sap I can be. Well yesterday I decided that I had to go rent the movie, but the stinkin rental place was out of copies. So I told Bryan that I was just going to buy it since I knew it had to be a good movie since the book was so great. I even went on to say that even if it had horrible actors it would still be good. Bryan said, "Well what if it had a horrible director that didn't follow the book?" I couldn't even fathom the idea that someone would do that! We sat down last night to watch it, WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! Bryan was right the director butchered the book it was hardly the same, maybe a few a names where still the same but what about the 6-7 people he cut out, the setting was different (although he did use Ireland for some of it), the story line was different, the characters were so drastically different it was hard to accept some of the scenes of the movie, even the letters were different. So my point is that if you are like me and like to read the book before seeing the movie, you will be sadly disappointed by this one! I think I might have liked the movie if I hadn't read the book!

My niece stayed the night this past weekend and I told the girls I would do a little photo shoot. I posted some of my niece's on the business blog, but wanted to post a few of my girls too. I saved my favorites to put on the new website which should be ready within the next month!

Don't worry there are no more zoo pics

But there are some aquarium pics!! I am almost done posting from the trip to the zoo, but needed to add these from the Scott Aquarium. I wasn't able to get as many in the aquarium as I a had hoped, but I think I got a few keepers.
" I think I will name you squishy, and you will be my squishy!"
Name that movie!

More dance images

I tried to do a mini session with The Chatterbox after she had her hair done and before the recital, but it just didn't work. We were way to rushed and she had a problem with her face! She forgot how to smile normal! She occasionally does this thing when the camera comes out where her face just does not work, she bats her eyes, puckers her lips, and makes the strangest faces. I thought we had cured her of this and she had been doing so well, but for some reason during this session she had a bad case of "Fake Face". This is why she is not smiling in these images, sometimes I take what I can get!
