Bromley's Birthday...Better Late at Posting than Never..

Bromley's Birthday - July 17, 2009. He turned 12 years old. We are normally in Oceanside, CA for his birthday and so I totally spaced posting his birthday this year because we were actually home for the first time in like 6+ years. Bromley is really into building model cars and what better way to celebrate his big day then to go to the F1 racing track and drive the race cars. He invited his buddy Jack Knight and Trellany invited her big sista Annie Wirthlin. We had a lot of fun and even Mom got in and raced the boys. We then went to his favorite restaurant 'Red Robin' had gourmet hamburgers and then back to the house to open presents. Like I said he loves building model cars so it was fitting to get him some more challenging models. I first started out with the typical cars that normally take 2 - 4 hours and Bromley is building them in less than an hour. I asked the guy at the model store to give me a more challenging car. So he gave me a Peugot that should take about 2 - 4 days. I thought great this will keep him busy for the week. Well I was wrong...he had the car built less than 4 hours. I was shocked and amazed. Way to go Bromley...You're a Rock Star. I love you and Happy Happy Birthday.

One more model car..

This is the 2-4 day project car that he completed less than 4 hours...crazy kid.

When there is something he is focused on...there is nothing that can take him away from completing it...he's amazing.

Here's the car almost completed...just has to put it all together and then paint it. Way to go're a Rock Star and we love you so much!

Family Fun...

We're often asked 'What do you do in the Summer'? because it's sooooo HOT in Arizona. My reply is well we're backwards from all the other places. Just like the areas that are cold, snow, wet and freezing during the winter they hibernate, we hibernate in the summer. There's only so much swimming you can do before the water heats up and then you feel like you're in a we hibernate in the summer. We love to bowl and Brunswick built a beautiful new complex just west of us with a big arcade center, 24 lanes of bowling, restaurant, bar and grill. We found a super special thanks to Trellany that allows you to bowl for 2 hours includes shoes, pitcher of soda and up to 6 people bowling. It's so much fun. So here's some fun shots of us bowling.

Trellany & Bromley testing out the driving game in the arcade waiting for our buzzer to go off to tell us our lane is ready.

She is so good with Bromley...they truly love each other. Here's she's playing the 'Hoops' game with him.

Ready, get set...

She's nice but NOT that nice when it comes to winning...she's still the competitive Diva.

Now the true competition begins...let's see who wins.

If he just isn't the cutest...always a smile on his face. You can't help but be happy when you're with Bromley.

Here I go...this really is a lot of fun.

Just doesn't get any better than these 3..

Looks like I've still got it...STRIKE...oh yea baby!

My Angel..

My Twin, My Hero...I just love this kid so much!!
