Hair Cut Day!

This Sunday was hair cut day at the Hauk's Nest. Mo insisted on getting spiky hair which meant an end to the Atreyu look. I was sad about that. We went to the barbers at the Navy Exchange. Max kept saying he wanted a mohawk. I told him we already had one but he didn't get the joke.

After that we went to Friendly's for ice cream! Max got a volcano sundae that he decorated with M&M's, sprinkles, and bits of cake. Mo opted for a two scoop cone.

The shelves you see are for the boys clothes. We figured that it would be easier for them to put their own clothes away with these.

Notice Shawn's new bowler? A bowler hat is the reason I agreed to a date with the man in the first place. I met him outside a dorm building at WIU and didn't really give him much thought (sorry honey) but the next day I was having lunch with a girlfriend and I saw this guy sitting across the room. He was wearing this fantastic brown bowler but I couldn't see his face. I went over to complement his hat and it turned out to be the same guy. We ate lunch together and two days later had our first date and the rest is history.

The Kid's Got a Heck of a Fast Ball

Seriously Mo can wing em and we haven't taught him over handed throws. He's become something of a base ball fan. Maybe we still have time to get him on a league this summer.

I really like some of the shots I got of Mo just after catching the ball. It was a big deal when he caught it with his mitt.

New Couch and Cheesy Kids

The boys had fun posing for me while I tried out the setting on my new camera.

Mama's New Camera

Instead of waiting for my camera to be fixed we went out and splurged on a new camera. We're still getting my kodak fixed but now it'll be Shawn's camera to take on deployments.
