Family Photos 2015

A friend of a friend who is a photographer came to town from Utah and was offering short photography sessions. I had been following her work and talked Albert into getting some nice family photos taken since the ones we tried to take in Wyoming didn't really turn out this last year since it was SOO windy!  Check out London Photography Co. 

Wyatt wasn't into it at all, he hadn't been feeling well, but I am so happy with how they turned out! 

Here are our individual pictures:

We took pictures of us with each of the boys:

We hadn't taken pictures of just the two us in ages!

Fun group pictures!  Quentin was scared up on Albert's shoulders and kept grabbing Albert's face :)

Boys Healthy Videos

I like some roasted seaweed, but I wasn't sure the boys would share my affinity.  Wyatt surprised me by scarfing down seaweed :) 


Quentin is showing off two things things that he likes, his spider-man mask and stretching :)  He sometimes asks me to put on the TurboFire Stretch 10 so he can do it.

The Boys in April

Here are some of my favorite pictures of my babies during the month of April!

Shampoo mohawks! It's so hard to get a pic with both of them smiling at the same time.

All dressed up for church!

DiNO-Light Show

While I was working out on the morning of April 7, got a call from my friend saying she had tickets to this show for kids at Popejoy Hall, which is a theatre on the campus of University of New Mexico.  She wasn't feeling well and wanted to know if we wanted to go.  We hurried out the door and made it in time!

Both boys really had fun.  It's a story about dinosaurs acted out by puppets lighted up in the dark.  They went through a list of rules before it started, which included no talking.  Quentin took this very seriously and told me more than once not to talk.

Quentin also really liked riding the shuttle bus back and forth to the van and still talks about it every time we see a bus.

Here is a video of company performing on America's Got Talent:

Easter Weekend

My parents came into town on April 3rd and insisted Albert and I go on a date.  Of course we went (after I went to the mall with my parents and bought a fantastic vest and new workout outfit on clearance with coupons)! We went to our favorite place in the Albuquerque area, Indigo Crow Cafe.  

We had the wrapped brie for our appetizer and it was delicious!  Albert had the filet (like always) and I had the special, salmon on risotto.  Nothing better than eating truly delicious food, where you want to savor every bite!

On Saturday while Albert was at work, we watched conference and then dropped by the mall where I bought two new dresses on sale for $10 each at Old Navy and we ate lunch.  

We watched more conference and then when Albert came home from work we colored Easter eggs and then he went shooting with my dad.  My mom and I made ham, mashed potatoes & gravy, spiralized sweet potatoes, and roasted carrots for Easter dinner :)

Albert worked again on Easter and my parents left at about 9:00 AM so it was pretty low-key.  The boys did manage to eat all of their Easter candy in one day!  They still had candy left over from last Easter so I was pretty surprised.  Oh well, now we don't have to worry about it anymore.

I bought all the presents at the Dollar Tree.  I didn't get that many things.  I decided next year were going to just buy outside toys for Easter and maybe a chocolate bunny, but otherwise no candy.  Then I'll get some candy on sale the next day and have all their Easter candy be in the Easter egg hunt we'll do on Tuesday!

I made multi-grain waffles out of my mix from Trader Joe's and grain-free pancakes for my mom who is gluten-free (you can find that recipe here -- they're my fave) for breakfast.  The boys and I watched General Conference until Dad came home from work!

Wyatt Turns Two!

We celebrated Wyatt's 2nd birthday on March 26th!  I can't believe it's been two years since he came into the world, it's like it was yesterday I was in the hospital, but also like he's been part of the family forever.  We love him so much!  

He's a man of few words, but he's starting to talk more and it's fun to know what's going on in his little mind :)  He and Quentin are best friends even though they get in little fights everyday.

When Quentin opens presents he rips one open and then immediately moves on to the next, not Wyatt!  He would open one present and then would cry when we would try and get him to open up another.  He loved all his presents!

Love these boys!

We bought special cupcakes this year!  We're on a mission to find the best ones in the Albuquerque metro area :) The red velvet one was the BEST of this bunch!

Wyatt was excited to eat his cupcake!  Yum!  Happy birthday little man :)

Old Town Albuquerque

On March 20th we met up with our friends that live on the other side of town to visit Old Town Albuquerque.  I'm embarrassed to say, we've lived here for almost three years and had never been there! Unfortunately our friends are moving to Utah at the end of the month so this was our last time hanging out :(

Our kids had so much fun running around together!  It was the perfect spring day. Overcast with no wind.

We visited the pretty San Felipe de Neri Church that was built in 1793.

I had a lot of fun checking out the old plazas and hanging out with Courtney.  It's really quaint and I'll have to take Albert there someday :) It reminds me of Santa Fe.

We also went out to eat at the Golden Crown Panaderia, which was so good!  We had pizza, cookies, and a blueberry empanada :)

Eating Out in March

After I finished my 21 Day Fix Extreme challenge (if you want to learn more about that see my post here) we made up for it by going out to eat :) We want to start eating at different places around here instead of gross franchises.

Our favorite place so far is right by our house :) It's an Indian & Nepalese restaurant called Namaste.  On March 13 we dropped Quentin off at preschool and took sleepy Wyatt with us.  He was so good!  Almost as good as the food!

On March 16 Dairy Queen had free ice cream so we picked some up on the way home after we bought a beta fish.  We had to drive at least 15 minutes to get home and I didn't have to lick any of the three ice cream cones I was holding the whole way home.  Not once! I'm thinking it's not the highest quality!

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day by eating corned beef and cabbage at a local pub grill called Turtle Mountain. We went early before dropping Quentin off at his preschool so it was pretty empty :)  We also split a pizza.  Yum!

On March 18 we picked up hot dogs at the Urban Hot Dog Company.  I had a tofu Bahn Mi with no jalapenos and Albert had the Le Bleu.  It was pretty good, but I think next time I get a Vietnamese sandwich I'll just go to a Vietnamese restaurant since it's better there.

New Beta Fish

Here's a bonus picture of my cute kids that I took on March 7th :)

On March 16th we bought a beta fish!  It's kind of a big deal because we've never had a pet before :)  He's still swimming around in there and besides feeding him we don't really pay much attention to him.  He is really pretty!
