This new slideshow is a collection of pictures from when my BF was in town (with her family), our trip to Albuquerque this past weekend to visit my fabulous mother-in-law, the Albuquerque Zoo, and lastly our day spent Santa Fe.

Our trip this past weekend was wonderful and busy and we soooo miss the nicer weather in ABQ, and Sherry/Mimi (mother-in-law) of course!

Yet another bee hive...

At this time last year we had a massive bee hive in the cinderblock wall in our backyard. Well, last year we thought we had rid ourselves of the bees, but it seems they've simply just relocated about 30 feet down the wall, tucked behind some shrubbery.

Not sure what we'll do about the bees for now -- especially since paying someone to get rid of them the last time failed to work. And now that I know the hive is where it is, my skin feels as if I have creepy crawlies all over -- YUCK!

Yay for Bray!!! He's Walking!!!!

We've really been trying to get Braydon to walk now for the past few weeks. He had the steps, but would only walk as long as he was holding on to both of my or daddy's hands... he just lacked the confidence.

Anyway, shortly after Tyson came home from work today, he took Braydon upstairs so they could get ready for shower time. Sure enough, as I was downstairs cleaning for a showing tomorrow, Braydon took his first steps and walked to his daddy.

When this happened, I heard Tyson cheering (loudly) for Braydon, but I just figured they were playing and being silly so I thought nothing of it and continued with my cleaning.

Suddenly I heard Tyson shouting, "he walked! Braydon walked!" Naturally I drop everything, race upstairs, and sure enough my baby boy was walking. I immediately begin jumping up and down and cheering for Braydon as well. Braydon then begins to cheer for himself and the next steps he took he said, "go, go, go" to himself. It was such a thrill and Tyson and I are completely beaming with pride!!!!

Since those first steps, he continued to walk for the rest of the night, right up until bedtime.

So, at 14 months and 4 days old, my son officially became a walker. Yay for Bray!!!
