Bad hair day

Keller's hair was getting a little shaggy so I asked Mike to give him a LITTLE trim around the ears. Our family does not have the best history when it comes to home haircuts and I knew that this was probably a bad idea. Next thing I know, Mike is giving Keller a full on haircut. When he got finished I was not happy. Little did I know that he was a better barber than the 18 year old recent graduate of Federico's Beauty College.
We got in the car and took the boys to Cost Cutters down the street. We waited what seemed like hours while they proceeded to pull down every bottle of shampoo, hairspray and gel from the shelves and then moved on to destroy the magazines.
Already annoyed at the whole situtation, I sat in the chair with Keller. I asked the girl to please even out the mess of a "haircut" that was given to him by Mike. She gets out her clippers and begins to shave his head right at the top! I yell at her to stop but it was too late. She rubbed the bald chunk with her hand as if she could make it come back and I thought she was going to cry. I thought I was going to cry. There was nothing left to do . . .

It's only hair and I guess it will grow back. Fortunately, Maguire was spared and Mike will never be getting near their heads with clippers again.

Tehachapi Mountain Festival

We spent a beautiful day in Tehachapi on Saturday for the Mountain Festival. We had a great day and the boys had a lot of fun! We did a lot of chasing but it was worth it.

San Fransisco and Manja's wedding

We went to San Fransisco this weekend and it couldn't have been more fun. Mike and I are both challenged when it comes to directions. We definitely took the "scenic" route to get to San Fransisco but we didn't mind. He enjoyed talking, laughing and a quiet lunch at Dennys.

We had a little bit of time to be tourists before the wedding. We went to Fisherman's Wharf with some friends. We both want to come back and do more of the nerdy tourist things.

I had to document Mike in a shirt and tie. It doesn't come out very often!

The wedding was amazing. It was so fun to get dressed up, eat a fancy dinner and dance all night! Manja looked happy and beautiful and I was so glad that I got to be there to celebrate with her and spend some time with my girlfriends.

crazy days

I'm crazy busy, we just got back from San Fransisco (pictures coming) and I had to get back into the swing of life-real life. I'm heartbroken about going back to work and pray everyday for a miracle in which I could resign! I'm trying to get all my loving in with the boys because I know I am going to miss them really soon. I just thought I'd post a few pictures of my cuties since I had a second to breathe.
