Rainbows on the Rez

Late Summer and early Fall bring crazy weather to the Southwest. Bright blue skies and clear mornings give way to the thickest clouds you can imagine - layered with sun and rain. One word for this is...MONSOON! It makes for some seriously nutty weather but also produces some really amazing cloud formations and even cooler rainbows...

A couple of weeks ago we took a whirlwhind long weekend trip to visit our good friend Teresa in Chicago. Teresa lives in Wheaton which is the nicest town I have been to in awhile. I loved the wide streets the mature grown trees and the funky downtown area. We met Teresa's family - stayed with her brother Steve and really just hung out. We managed to get downtown for a fantastic dinner with old friends - Noel and Suzanne. Other then that it was all about good food, good drinks and great company.

Happy 11 Month Birthday, Baby!

Can you believe little O turned 11 months old today. We snuck him into the hospital on Friday and weighed him and he weighed in at a whopping 19.8 pounds - now I know that doesn't sound like much when you think he is almost one year old...but just think he started out at only 5 pounds and 13 ounces. Now I now why my hip hurts when I walk with him on my back. YIKES! As you can see, he is still not a huge fan of the boot! Not sure what happened in his short little life to scar him like that...
This was as close as he would get to the boot. When I layed him down...forget it...he was off rolling across the floor. Wild Man!
