playing catch up

It turns out this working thing really puts a damper on one's free time and well, the blog is suffering for it. So I'm going to attempt to make up for my 2-week blogging hiatus in this one post.

First of all, kudos to those of you who solved the riddle! I knew it was creative but I didn't really think it would be that difficult to crack. Just know that if you didn't get it on your own, you weren't alone. Anyway, yes we are expecting another baby due around May 18, 2009 (originally May 17 -- it changed by a day since I last posted). Should be interesting because last 2 have both come on the 26th of the month which also happened to be 10 days past their official due dates. This one will obviously be breaking one of those traditions if not both. Anyone want to start placing bets now?

Back to the catching up...

A few weeks ago my friend Lindsey and I drug the boys out of bed at a grueling 5:30am to do the Walk for Hope and help raise some money to fight breast cancer. It was a gorgeous day albeit exhausting.

For being a lesser known walk it was amazing how many people were there! Here's a shot of the crowd entering the zoo which was part of the course.

Zoo admission was included for the rest of the day so once we finished our 3 miles we took the boys back for some fun. I think it's pretty safe to say that their favorite part of the day was the petting zoo/farm area. I mean they got to ride on real "ta-kors" (tractors)!

Peyton also enjoyed the animals but Alex opted to sit that part out.

He did however enjoy the farm playhouse. Notice that nice red mark on his forehead? That was courtesy of the header he took out of his stroller 20 minutes earlier at the Wallaby exhibit. Can we say bad mommy?

And finally proof that is was all in all an exhausting day. Anyone who knows Alex knows that this is a RARE occurance!

Last weekend I finally made good on Ben's Fathers Day gift and took him to the Neil Diamond concert. I personally am not his biggest fan but have to admit it was a good show. The man is definitely a born entertainer. Though after witnessing him live and knowing what a huge fan Ben is I have to wonder why it is that Ben refuses to take me to the theater, particularly musicals. I also have to wonder why ol' Neil hasn't joined the likes of Elton John, Billy Joel, and even Abba in taking his music to the stage. The man has Broadway show written all over him!

Think Ben enjoyed the show? (pardon the poor picture quality -- they were taken on my cell phone)
