Saturday, July 30, 2011 pictures...via Pikaw...

July disappeared.
It started with a nice week in H-town with the hubs and my little one. We had fun spending time with family and some out of town friends.  It's hard when friends live states away, but always nice when things immediately fall into place when you see them again.
Then, the hubs are I were off to Barbados.  I was going for work, the hubs went for vacay.  We had a great time.  We swam with turtles, drove around and got seriously lost, visited a cave on the edge of the ocean and took some serious pictures at the wildlife sanctuary.  We planned to make an animal photo book for the little one. We looked at the pictures that night and loved them.  Then, the EVIL digital camera fairy came and stole all of our pictures. The hubs took the card to a camera store in hopes that he could find them.  It didn't work. So, no pictures from Barbados.
evil, evil camera fairy 
But, I'm very thankful for great memories.
I flew home, met my sister and little one at DFW, changed planes and headed to Cali.
I went to Cali for work, the sister and little one went for vacay.   
Are you seeing a trend yet?
I was working at a new account and it was a stressful week to say the least.
But, one of my dear friends lives in Cali and my sister and little one were with me, so it really was an amazingly great 10 days! We were able to spend time with our wonderful friend and the little one fell in love with his Aunt Kiki!  Not that she needed help, but the toys from Toygaroo definitely sealed the deal! We roamed around Santa Monica, Venice, the mall and Jubie's favorite - Knott's Berry Farms. It was her favorite part of the trip.  She's quite the thrill seeker.
My sister Jubie is unbelievably talented.  She is the most wonderful watcher of all things little one and the most talented photographer I know.  We have lots of pictures, but here are some of my favorites.

Not so secret anymore, now is it?

Wow, the week has flown by!
We arrived last Saturday and head back to the states tomorrow.  The wifi has been a little sketchy, so no pictures - as of yet.
Today, I am not working.  (yea!)
We are going to go swim with some turtles and we have rented a car - going to tour the island a bit this afternoon.  Should be fun, since they drive on a different side of the road here.
Hopefully, we will get some pics up next week.

Oh - and my sister had her little one...and my little one is obsessed with him.  I hear he's trying to snag him...

the little one's 2nd Astros game

Last night, we were blessed to go to the Astros game with some amazing friends!  It was great to be able to hang out with them and we all enjoyed watching the little one mimic the ball players.  
During a break, the ball girls were throwing {soft} baseballs into the stands.  
The little one got on his daddy's shoulders and waved and waved, hoping to get a baseball. They threw some around our section, but not near us. Then, they moved on...but, one kind guy on the field noticed the little one and he pointed him out to another guy.  

They went and got a baseball from the girls and threw it directly to us!  

The little one couldn't have been happier!

Around the 4th inning, the little one wanted to we went on a stroll.  The stroll involved some shopping and we left with a {soft} bat, ball and glove.  For the next hour, we watched the little one play baseball while the boys watched the Astros score some runs.

It was a winning night for time with friends, the little one...and the 'stros! Yea!
