Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

The Big 5!

Wow, can't believe it's been 5 years, but J had his 5th birthday! And it was quite the party indeed. Close your eyes, picture sixteen 4 & 5 year olds roaring, jumping, screaming, and ROARING. For 2-1/2 hours. Quite the "dream", huh? That was our party - J's Dinosaur Island. Complete with a "boat" (bounce house), rare dino egg hunt (got double duty out of those easter eggs), "excavation" (anything with sand thrills the little ones), erupting volcano (well, sort mistake of not trying this experiment out ahead of time), the ever necessary pinata, and more that I'm forgetting. The kids had a blast and J declared that is was the "BEST DAY EVER IN MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE!!!". How are we ever going to top this one?

Here are some pics.
