The Park, Bubble Bath and a Haircut

Can you believe I actually uploaded pictures off my camera so I have something to blog about! Most evenings Chris is hogging the laptop on Youtube or Craigslist. Anyway he is gone this evening so I am taking advantage.

Last weekend we had a couple of days of beautiful weather so we headed out to the park.

The sun was so warm that we took off our sweatshirts! The car said it was 49 degrees but I swear it was warmer than that. Either that or I am just a true Washingtonian.

Hayes loved running around the park. We went once before but Hayes wasn't really running around like he is now.
So Sweet
Last week I gave Hayes his first candy cane...

Yes he is wearing reindeer jammies in February. Got to wear it will it still fits!

which lead to his first bubble bath, I'm pretty sure he liked it!

Well last night I finally broke down and Chris gave Hayes his first hair cut. Wwwwaahhhh!

It was time! He looked so cute with it a little long and he was definitely rocking a mullet, but every time he eats for some reason he feels the need to place his food on top of his head. Banana is not the easiest to get out without a full blown bath.
Hayes in his Darth Vader cape. It didn't even last until Daddy made it in the room with the clippers.

Daddy was going entirely too slow!

Instant tough guy
He now looks like a 3 year old =(

Uh oh, these questions kind of look like trouble! haha. Let's just say I was not the best teenager. Chris and I always joke are afraid Hayes is going to be a combination of the two of us in high school. We might be in trouble. haha

{no. 1} Describe what high school was like for you. Include details like where you went, your dedication to certain subjects, etc.

I went to Sehome High School. Where I did not fit in at all! It was such a clicky school where you weren't anyone if you didn't play sports. I got in my fair share of trouble in school, and I was lucky to graduate with decent grades. Thank goodness I did running start my senior year, so it got me out the high school and I was able to finish some college credits.

{no. 2} On a typical Friday night in high school, what could you be found doing?

Uh oh, you don't want to know. Let's just say I was not doing what I should be doing! Lots of wheelin and parties up on the mountains.
{no. 3} Did you own a car in high school?

Yep. I got my license the day I turned 16 actually I took the test when I was 15 1/2 so on my birthday I went in and picked up my license. I had a 1986 Dodge truck. Horrible on fuel mileage, but we could fit 4 in the cab and who knows how many in the back. 

{no. 4} Sum up your fashion sense in high school.

Redneck. I was such a rebel! I wore a rebel flag everyday, cowboy boots, cowboy hat, you name it; I pushed the limits at the preppy school. Oh and big bangs! Yeah I still rocked the 80s bangs well into the 2000s.

{no. 5} Have you attended any high school reunions?

Nope. We had a reunion 2 years ago but I didn't go. I still live in my home town and I probably would have gone if it hadn't been $50 a person to get in. Yeah not worth it to see people I never liked in the first place. I do still have a couple of friends from high school and we get together occasionally for dinner, but everyone else, who cares. 

Sorry for the horrible picture quality. I am way too lazy to find the actual pictures.  I stole these off my old Myspace, and obviously it was before digital. Actually I must have had to scan these to Myspace because I didn't have it in high school.

{no. 1} What is your favorite flower?

Tulips. Good thing I only live a couple of miles from Tulip Town, USA

{no. 2} Tell us about your favorite Valentine's Day:

I seriously can not remember a single Valentine's Day. I have no clue! Haha. Chris and I have been together almost 7 years, I am sure we did something for one of them? Maybe...
{no. 3} Was Valentine's Day a big deal when you were a kid?

Yes. My mom always made it special.  She always got us little gifts and valentines. In fact I think we got presents every holiday growing up! haha I guess I better step up my game!

{no. 4} If you could have any one thing for Valentine's Day what would it be?

Have a night out with Chris. We haven't had a date night in months. I would love to be able to sneak away sans kids and just spend time with him!
{no. 5} Do you have any special plans for Valentine's Day?

Nope. Maybe I will make a nice dinner, and watch a movie after the kids are in bed?
