{Great New Idea for a Cafe!}

I went to a great little cafe with my hubby yesterday after picking up a little post card about it while I was picking up diapers at Costco. I was intrigued by their idea of letting parents have "adult time" while the kids had their time.

Let me just say - I LOVE IT!! - I actually had a very nice lunch with hubby - without interruption. I must say this was a first for me and him since we started having children - note our oldest is going to turn 7 in June.

Don't think we forgot about the kids - they ate with us too, but when they were done they got to play and William and I had a real conversation that was more then a few words and we didn't get interrupted once! I forgot how much I love talking with my hubby UNINTERRUPTED! Don't get me wrong we talk, but it's always in between "Mommy can I have this or that?" or "Daddy can I play with this or that?" or "Give me attention because I am starving!" (hahaha - like they are ever starved)

I think we are going to make it a once a week affair so we can get back to having a "date night/lunch" again. I love being a mother but I need to remember I am a wife too and in order to be a good mommy I need to be a good wife and have REAL conversations and time with my dear hubby.

Check out this cafe for sure, it's super friendly and has a wonderful atmosphere too. Oh yeah and it's called "Me Too!" I am so glad someone thought of this idea - it was something much needed for me and hubby (and we forgot we even needed it!) - oh and it's not just for Mom/Dad time but for those outings to get together with your girlfriends too and don't want to always go to the park because it's too hot/cold/wet.

{Field Trip to the zoo with Aaron's class}

Our group had 6 very active boys - even with 5 adults we still didn't have enough supervision. I was sooo beat after this fieldtrip!

Enjoy the captures of our fun filled day.

{Sneek Peek - Family Session}

I was able to photograph this family again - I just enjoy their enthusiasm and their smiles. I had a great time getting to know them better.

{Lighting, Thunder and Water}

So yesterday wasn't too bad until all of a sudden it got dark (gloomy, cloudy dark) and lightning struck and thunder boomed and hail and rain poured from the heavens. This went on for some time - I unplugged my computer because I fear that electricity and lighting will fry my computer if I leave it plugged in (irrational fear because it's hooked into a surge protecter, but still I worry).

The lighting and thunder went on for well over an hour or two and shook the whole apartment and the lighting was cracking down so hard and close that it lit up the whole apartment (I turned off all the lights to watch some late night tv by myself). It was bright and bothersome really. The air would tingle with electricity with each and every crack and boom.

I did finally get to sleep after all the ruckus only to be waken this morning to William in a roar because the boys had taken cup fulls of water and had been throwing them at eachother in their room. Water everywhere and apparently William was so caught up in his internet stuff that he didn't notice them throwing water in the livingroom too. I went to sit on the couch and got a watery, soggy butt. Seriously I was not too happy and annoyed. I haven't been feeling well and to see my hard work of keeping the house clean and orderly thrown away to a soggy watery mess of strewn clothes and toys and all soaked in water didn't make me happy at all and to top it off, the boys newly cleaned room was covered in chip crumbs because they got into the chips. Needless to say I had a huge mess to clean is an understatement.

For some reason the kids wouldn't listen at all and my migraine was something fierce and William was in one of his funks and so he stayed in bed for most of the day. Sometimes I really wish I wasn't a mom or wife and only had to worry about me and my health. Believe me I love my family but on days where I can bearly function from the horrific pain in my head. I did take a few of my heavy duty pain pills but I couldn't take what I really needed because it ends up knocking me out and I had to be the "adult" today.

I did get some stuff done today. I still have more stuff to do with my business but I just couldn't stay in front of the computer much today - the light was reaking havoc with my head.

I am feeling better right now and my migraine finally toned down a bit - especially after the kids went to bed for the night. I did watch "The Cider House Rules" tonight. I forgot what a good movie it was. It was nice to just sit and relax and enjoy a good movie.

Now I am watching "Night at the Museum". It's a funny movie with Ben Stiller - gotta love the monkey. I forgot it had Robin William's in it. I am hoping that William will be outta his funk and we can have a nice day before I have my photo session tomorrow evening.

Well I gotta go - Ruth just woke up again - I can already tell I am going to be up and down for most of the night with her.

{Cutie Pie}

I had a wonderful opportunity on Sunday to photograph this little cutie and his family. I did photograph his mommy when she was preggers with him and was so glad I could photograph him too. He was just too cute for words. Enjoy!
