apparently, Jake thinks we need to have 2 more babies...

at least, that's what he said when I asked him about the two smallest beings in this family protrait he drew yesterday.

Not gonna happen bud :p

Also, while poking at Carlos' belly button yesterday, he peered DEEP inside and said "it's DAHK in dere!"

I found it hilarious...Carlos, not so much :p Maybe you had to be there, lol.


I've been a bad blogger...

Sorry, I've been lazy and had nothing to say. We did go to the pumpkin patch yesterday (again!) and got a few shots I really love. (Sorry Jen! We didn't go until too late for you guys to come :( THe boys had a great time. Hopefully tomorrow, I'll have the carving and "gooey pumpkin gut" pics - I know you can't wait!

Here are the rest!

do yourself a favor...

if you're a fan of photography, check out this blog. Seriously gorgeous stuff. So beautiful, many of the photographs brought tears to my eyes.

The FABULOUS Miss Melanie. She is in town for the weekend visiting Dr. Andy so we hooked up for a few hours. Some yummy food at Mongolian Barbeque, some shopping at a couple of cute little shops in Ann Arbor...very eclectic stuff! I got this AWESOME little toy in the first shop. Nope, I have zero use for it but how can you pass up a wind-up nun called "Nunzilla." And dude, she SPITS FIRE. All for the bargain basement price of $3.50. I may be going straight to hell but I know I'll be in good company since you all laughed too ;)

The second store was called 16 Hands. Lots of arts and crafts type stuff. I picked up a couple of greeting cards and a book (Christmas gift - yeehaw!) They had some gorgeous art and jewelry and some other stuff that left us scratching our heads (but have us thinking that perhaps, we're in the wrong business and could make our fortunes in other, more kooky endeavors.)

I got to briefly meet Mel's hubby Andy in the Kroger parking lot (where this pic was took...I thought about lying and saying it was on the UofM campus but I think it's even better in a grocery store parking lot :p) Had so much fun with Melanie...like we've known each other for years (well, I guess technically we *have* but never in real life!) I'm so glad we got a chance to hang out and I'm REALLY hoping that her and Andy's future is in Michigan.

Heading to the pumpkin patch today so hopefully I'll have some good photos to share tomorrow! Have a great weekend all!


how I spent my weekend...

on the shores of Lake Huron...

Our last camping trip of the year - one last chance to use the pop-up we bought early in the summer. Spent some time at Port Crescent State Park in Port Austin, MI. Right on the tip of the thumb :) It was chilly and overcast and windy but we didn't get any rain. Zack was fighting some serious teething issues (an hour round trip just to get him some Tylenol Saturday night...well worth it though!) I came home with a killer sinus infection but I intend on camping out at home until it passes.

We had a GREAT time though. We went with my mom and stepdad who are always thrilled at the prospect of spending some time with two thirds of their grandsons. Jake got to do some fishing with his super cool Spongebob pole, the boys played some tee ball and Trouble at night in the camper. We took walks and sat around the campfire. Good times.

Check out some more photos here if you're so inclined :) Hope everyone else had a great weekend as well!

Oh! And I have two books packaged up and ready to hit the PO...Hopefully in the next couple of days I'll be up to getting them mailed out :)



Well, I'm a reading fool again (thanks in part to reading while I ride the bike and the routine we've established for Jake's bedtime that gives me good reading time each night) and have already gone through a couple of books in the last week or so...I want to share the wealth with all my friends! I used to hoard all my books but now, I buy cheapy paperbacks and don't see myself RE-reading too many of them so I'm going to start sending them on to my buddies randomly. If you're interested in being added to my random mailing list email me at elhernandez@gmail.com with your address and you could find yourself a little gifty in the mailbox from me someday soon :) Let me know if you're picky about what you read since I read pretty much anything...

I'm on day 5 of the new bike regimen...I added five minutes today for a total of almost 14 miles and just over 200 calories. It's getting easier to motivate myself to go down to the basement everyday. Haven't felt the results yet (hey - I'm impatient!) but I know they are coming. I've been a lot better about my snacking and late night eating too. Feels good to be taking better care of myself!

And finally, this little sweetheart (who also learned how to climb in the bathtub recently :p)

Later gators!
