Cars in the House

It's been a couple weeks since our last post, and I wish I could provide more excuse about what we've been up to. Since we live here in hot-hot Arizona, we don't go outside a lot, because 100 plus degrees is CRAZY!

This is a video from here at the house. I was noticing that Thomas was playing with his cars while in a trance. I found it entertaining and so captured this video of Thomas in his own world.

As many readers also know, Cars 2 from Disney/Pixar came out this past Friday, and so we took Thomas to the movies. Some parents may think it too early or too late that we haven't taken Thomas to the movie theatre yet, but we had been nervous about his attention span. Here are a couple pictures of Thomas in the theatre! We loved the movie Cars 2, and we got to eat popcorn and see the movie with Mommy, Daddy, Oma, Auntie Leia, and Uncle Steve, it was awesome!

Tire Swing

Although this happened earlier in the week, I did want to share the fun things happening this summer. On Monday Antonio came and played with Thomas at the part and both boys had a blast. Yes- it was warm, we still had fun playing, and we love that the summer isn't over yet!

Cars 2, Opening Soon

Thomas as many of you readers know is in love with cars. The cars that drive by, the cars we ride in, the matchbox cars that he always has in his hand and of course the movie Cars. Sometimes Jenn and I will be made to feel bad because we don't own the movie Cars, and technically speaking, Thomas has never seen the full movie Cars, but since the sequel is coming out on June 24th, Thomas has seen many commercials and therefore is excited.

The smart Disney/Pixar people have created a Cars tour, where you can go and see full size versions of some of the Cars characters. Below are some pictures from the event which we attended Monday afternoon.

Yes, we had to wait in line for 2 hours, and yes there were thousands of other little boys excited to see the cars. If you'd like to see more pictures just check out our photo album from this month of June (Cars pictures are after the balloon pictures).

Hot Air Goes Up

This past weekend, Jenn and I went on a hot air balloon ride, which Jenn has always been interested in doing. We have a couple friends (Dan and Anessa) that went along with us, and we floated around in the Arizona desert as the sun was coming up.

Here are some pictures and some videos from our exciting voyage, and yes, I definitely recommend hot air balloons. I think everyone should try a balloon ride at least once in their life- it's awesome.

This is a video of Thomas for this morning. Thomas has become a lot better at pedaling and riding his tricycle around the block.
