The Many Faces of Maddux

Maddux 's new favorite thing is to bring me the camera and then he says "cheese"...meaning, that he wants me to take pictures of him.
The funny thing is that he makes all these crazy faces, wants to see what they look like on the camera, then he laughs at himself and wants to do more.
The problem is that I can't get a decent smile out of him anymore! So frustrating. I try to tell him to just smile normal but he squints his eyes...says CHEESE...and does this silly grin! It is hilarious.

I hope it's just a phase because he really does have a super cute and normal looking smile.

A Day at the Lake

Our friends, the Almonds, invited us to the lake last weekend to hang on their boat for the day! It was beautiful outside, except for the wind, but we had so much fun! Maddux loves being anywhere near water and is almost too brave. He wants to do everything by himself even though he can't and gets frustrated when we won't let him. Greg was able to wake board and wake surf while I just soaked up the rays and swam a little. Here are a few pics of our day...for video of Greg surfing and wakeboarding you'll have to check out our Maddux videos blog.

Girls Day

I recently went to Las Vegas to have a spa day with my Mom and two of my sisters. It was so much fun! I took Maddux down and my Dad spent the day with him while us girls went to the spa to work out, swim, and get massages and then we went out to eat after. It was nice to be able to relax before I head back to school...and Maddux loved hanging out with Grandpa for the day!

Here we are ready for our workouts!
