You all know those moments when you don't have your camera around for a quick photo opp... but you ALWAYS seem to have your phone handy! :) I finally uploaded some of Shad's iPhone photos because I have been wanting to do some blog posts of things we've been up too this summer, and some of our summer celebrations (anniversary, birthday, etc.), which have all been on his phone. So instead of doing many small entries here is a photo BINGE of everything we've been doing this summer, via iPhone!
(We also have TONS of videos that we need to get uploaded as well! For some reason our video camera is ALWAYS out of battery! Haha! But that perhaps is another post for another day.)
At Ikea shopping for a "Big Boy Bed," this is when we knew he was ready! :)
Shad loves to take Owen for walks, especially after a long day at work and these nice summer evenings. Owen, of course LOVES it, and always finds a tractor to explore! (We have construction/new homes going up behind our house)
Trying on Daddy's Shoes.
Zonked out on our way down to Utah!
And... after hiking up Timp Caves down in Utah! (Along with Cousin Julia!)
Shad and his law firm are SUPER geared up for this upcoming Presidential Election, and are really involved in the Romney campaign. This was at one their events here in Seattle, this is Micheal Medved... a local radio/TV celeb. (Remember to go out and vote Romney 2012!)
Shad took Owen out shopping, just the two of them. And Owen liked the baseball aisle... like father, like son I guess!
Okay... this next one is not a phone picture... but it goes with the next few! On July 15th, Shad and I celebrated our 6 Year Anniversary of Marital Bliss!! This was us on our actual day. I love him... I really LOVE him! In some ways I cannot believe it's been 6 years, wow! But thinking about 2 BA degrees from BYU, 1 Law School degree, Moving/living in 3 different cities, and 2 kids later... Yup, 6 years sounds about right!
To celebrate, Shad completely spoiled me with brand new camera equipment (Camera bag, travel tripod, memory card holder, etc.)! And a night out together at the Melting Pot! Yum!
We opted for the delicious 4 course meal. So fun... you get to cook your own meats in the fondue pot!
But nothing beats DARK chocolate fondue for dessert! Mmmm...
Shad was watching the kids and was busy feeding Nathan... Owen was freaking out behind the couch saying he was stuck. Finally when Shad got to him... this is what he found: Owen's arm stuck in the blinds' string. Haha! Look at the guilty face!
Lining up his cars all in a row!
The boys' FIRST bath together. Too cute.
Owen has an iPhone and iPad obsession/addiction. He loves to color on it, so we have MANY of these color creations that he takes pictures of and saves on both the ipad and iphone. Hilarious. (Its THOMAS of course!)
Silly grumpy Nathan!
Shad's new office (they recently moved floors), Fancy!
AND... Shad's awesome office view. Why, yes, that IS Mt. Rainier!
On August 2nd, I celebrated my 27th Birthday! I'm so lucky to have such good friends and family who thought of me on my birthday! It was a good day. My dear friend took me out to lunch with the boys. Shad came home with flowers, and my mom babysat while Shad and I went out to dinner and a movie! Shad took me to Bajios... probably my favorite place EVER. These were my delicious Nachos... A-MAZING!
Ice cream date with Momma! (This one is from my non-iphone)
Nathan sitting in a restaurant high chair for the first time at Red Robin! All smiles!
Owen is teaching Nathan the iPad obsession.
And finally... Pictures of Owen's first Mariner's Game on July 30th! We didn't want to take the BIG camera with us, so we got these gems with Shad's phone.
I loved this one... they are giving me the SAME face/eyes!
Owen LOVED the food aspect of the M's game... I mean really, who doesn't love ball park food!?
It was so sweet to capture and witness those father/son moments together. Shad loves baseball (and sports) and I hope that is something he can share in common with his boys!
It was LDS night at Safeco field... so we got discounted tickets, got to sit with many ward members and friends, plus our Ward/Group was featured on the big screen multiple times! And to top it off we got Free T-shirts (seen below)! It was definitely a fun night out with our little Owen. He loved it!
So there you have it! A few of our summer snippets and what's been going down in the McOmber home!
