6 months old

WOW-how time flies! I cannot believe that my sweet baby boy is half a year old today! It makes me sad to think that he is growing up so fast. The past 6 months have been absolute joy (even though Clay & I have barely slept)!! Happy 6 month birthday Mitchell!

BBQ Fest 2009

This year marked Mitchell's 1st BBQ Fest. Clay & I have been part of the cooking team, Totally B'oard, for the Memphis in May contest for several years now. It was a lot of fun to take Mitchell this year.
I must say that this year has been quite different from years past. I think you either had to have a stroller or be pregnant to get into our tent. When we arrived on Wednesday, there was stroller after stroller parked along side the tent.
It was fun watching all the kids run around on that Wednesday night. It certainly entertained Mitchell--he was pooped when we got home that night. He spent the next 2days at Granna & Auby's in Eupora so that Clay & I could enjoy the festival with our friends. He came back & participated in the events on Saturday. He finally got to meet a new friend, Anna Kathryn Head. I think they both enjoyed rolling around on the pallet under the tent on Saturday afternoon.
We had a great time & are looking forward to next year!

Dead Shows

Clay and I travelled to NYC a couple of weeks ago to catch the Dead at Madison Square Gardens. We ended up making a long weekend of it. We landed on Friday afternoon and just walked around mostly people watching. That night, we had a nice dinner at The Stanton Social. It was great. On Saturday, we had brunch at this fantastic little restuarant in Greenwich Village. Once again, we people watched. We later met up with Becca & Matt Harrigan at McSorley's (which is where our pic was taken)before the show. The show was fantastic & we had a great time.

This past weekend, XM/Sirius was playing the Philadelphia Dead Show live. So, Clay, Mitchell & I cooked out and listened to the tunes. I think Mitchell enjoyed his first Dead show--he noodled with his dad for most of it!

Various Pics from the last month

I've been meaning to post pictures from Easter and Super Bulldog Weekend and just have not had the chance. So, I've put a slideshow together to show them.
We had the best time in C'dale for Easter. Mitchell dyed his 1st Easter eggs and the Easter bunny came to see him. He got a life vest & hat for the lake this summer, a family zoo membership and lots of toys.
Super Bulldog Weekend marked Mitchell's 1st trip down to Eupora. So, we gave Granna and Auby the whole weekend to show him off. He had the best time meeting all of their friends.
