Pirates like...
 to brush their teeth.

Tonka trucks.

to explore.
 friends on their journey.
to make friends by knocking on doors.
 to play peek-a-boo
 dogs...and to give dogs kisses.
 to run WILD.
 to take a break.

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Heath!
I am so thankful for you.
You are a wonderful husband and great dad.
I am so glad that before you were born,
God had a plan for you....
and part of that plan included me in your life.
I wish we could spend the day with you....
We miss you!

I have to add the Brad Paisley song Anything Like Me.
Every time I hear it, I just think of Heath and Mason.
The song is about a dad discussing all the things he did when he was younger,
and how the dad is going to get his payback if he's anything like him.
Then the song ends with this...
"Aw he'll be alright if hes anything like me"

The last line always makes me smile,
because I hope that Mason is like Heath.
I am very proud of my husband.
I am very thankful for Heath. 
all his hard work, his love for Mason, and
his love for me.

We love you!

Pumpkin carving.

After we went to Kerby Farm,
we decided to carve one of our pumpkins.
Heath wanted to carve a pumpkin with Mason,
but he wouldn't be in town again until after Halloween.

Mason helping daddy.

 Our Owl.
It actually turned out really cute.
I just didn't take any pictures when Heath was finished.
 Mason was playing football while daddy was carving.
 Just jabbering and waving to the cars that drove by.

Great Plains Zoo

Mason and I went to the Great Plains Zoo.
I thought Mason would enjoy looking at all the animals.
Well, he wasn't interested in seeing "new" animals.
He liked looking at the ducks, the wild dogs,
 the farm exhibit which included cows and goats.
All animals we could see any day.
He wants more of the petting zoo animals...
animals he can get close to...
animals he can touch.
 Mason's favorite spot.
Looking at the birds.
He just wanted to push the stroller.
African Exhibit.
 This is definitely a Heath excitement.
 Finally, an animal Mason could pet.

I haven't been posting as much as usual....
don't worry we have tons of pictures and memories to share.
We have been visiting Heath for the last little bit.
We don't have Internet at the apartment so I can't post as much.
Mason and I went to the zoo and the park.
Mason has been hanging out with daddy.
We are just enjoying the time together.
I will get back to posting,
but right now we are spending the time with Heath. :)
