For the longest time when you asked Cade what color something was he would say "orange" no matter what it was. He now knows all of his colors and Josh is no longer worried that Cade was being brain washed with the idea that he needed to go to University of Texas! haha!

This past weekend Josh and I competed in the Warrior Dash in North Texas. It is a 5k run with several obstacles along the way. The last obstacle was swimming through a mud hole under strands of barbwire. It was a BLAST! Can't wait to do it again! So messy but so fun!!

I never wanted to have a birthday party at our house but this was the year to have it! It worked out great and since Cade is in his shy phase I definitely think it helped keeping him in his own domain. Thank you everyone for coming and making the day so special and wonderful for my precious baby boy! :)
My boy LOVES donuts so that is what we had instead of cake this year. They were a BIG hit!
We had stations set up all over the house. There was a Ticket Counter when you walked in, Security Check (leave your bags), Baggage Check (gift table), First Class Lounge (food and drink), The Cockpit (kids table), Airport Lobby (living room), Lavatory (bathroom) and the Runway Area (playroom)
Baggage Claim area- Their "suitcase" favor boxes, filled with a globe bouncy ball, some Cade Airways nuts and Personalized luggage tags
We hung clouds and planes in the sky over the cardboard "Air Traffic Control Tower" in the playroom
It's time to make a wish!
And now we realize all the attention is on me so I'm going to hide
The kids table in the cockpit was specially made for them (by my wonderful Dad) it was just their height. They each had there own little stool and cockpit control placemat with their own "Jet Fuel" (aka apple juice.) Each kid also got a hand painted orange wooden plane and a Co-pilot wings pin both with their name on it to also take home (made by artsy JuJu.) All the kids did so good and we had such a blast!
Look what someone got to pimp around the neighborhood in!! He LOVES IT!!!
Out making the drag in the new Gator!
Is this not a group of some good looking kids or what?!?! Thanks guys for making Cade's birthday so great! Each one of these kids mean so much to me!

Today is my baby boy's 2nd birthday!! Where does the time go!?! It seems like it was just yesterday we were having his first birthday party. It is still amazing to me how everyday I continue to love this little guy more and more. Everyday he amazes me at what he knows and what he learns. Today on his second birthday here is what he is like these days.....
Favorite foods: bean/cheese burritos, berries, nachos and ice cream
Favorite shows: Go Diego Go, Dora the Explorer, Dino Dan, Bubble Guppies
Favorite movies: Toy Story, Cars, Nemo, Shrek
Makes hilarious, theatrical kind of facial expressions including rolling his eyes (which he has mastered)
He LOVES to cuddle right after bath time while he is still wrapped in his towel
Talks up a storm!!
Still a Daddy's boy
Could JUMP on his bed ALL DAY long
Knows almost all animals on this planet (or so it seems)
Counts all the time: 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9
Likes to flirt with the LADIES (will run into things because he is in the zone) We are in trouble!
And of course I could go on and on but I know I'm partial so I won't continue to bore you! :)
It has been an amazing 2 years full of blessings and love! We love you little guy!

Josh is a registered PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER!!!!!!!!!!!
Congrats babe!!! I know you worked so hard on this!! I am sooo PROUD of you!!!
I love you!!!
For those of you who don't know the engineer world (which I wouldn't if my husband was not in it) it is seriously pretty much stupid how things work. You have to got to college to get an engineering degree, which of course is a major accomplishment in and of itself but that's not enough. In order for you to call yourself an "engineer" and put it on your business cards and such there are only two ways that it can go. 1.) You work for a Professional Engineer and so you can then put "engineer" as your title (which to most of the world would think that means you are an engineer, little do they know you are just riding on the heels of someone who really is, and you don't even have to have a college degree much less a college engineering degree) or 2.) You take the test and become one yourself. The test is by APPROVAL and RECOMMENDATION ONLY. That means you can't just take the test if you feel like it. Also, you have to be out of college for at LEAST 4 years before you can even think about taking the test. Then after you get approved to take it, have other P.E.'s send in referrals you get to study your rear off, and spend major money (like 4 figures) to take the test and hope like Hell you pass it. So for all those business cards you see where people have "engineer" listed as their job title, that is great and all but they aren't a ENGINEER. When you see Josh Luig, P.E., that means ENGINEER.
Congrats babe! You deserve that title!!! My husband is an ENGINEER!!! :)
