Spending some time with "the boys":)

Today, Billy and I took Dominic, Shane and Alex to the Wild West Fest at Leo Carillo Park in Carlsbad.  The boys had alot of fun and went from decorating their own cowboy hats, to riding ponies to getting a picture taken with the Wild West actors and more!

Shown below is a great picture of Shane sitting on some bails of hay.  I just love his expression.  He is such an adorable little boy!

Next we have a cute picture of Alex sitting against one of the walls while we were waiting to decorate cowboy hats.

I also took some really cute shots of Dominic and Shane as they were decorating their hats.  I just love close up fotos and how they focus on what they are doing.

Dominic also rode a bull while we were there.  He did such a great job!

Next the boys rode ponies.  I love this picture because even though the focus is on Dominic, since he is turning around, this foto draws you into his brothers behind him.  Even though they are a bit our focus, they still draw you into the foto.

I'm so glad we found out about this event.  We had alot of fun and the boys were able to experience a bit of the "Wild West".

Great Frugal Fotos from Texas Trip

My husband and I met some family members in Texas a few weeks back and had a GREAT time!  I've been able to go through just a few of the AWESOME fotos I took, so I thought I'd share them today...can't wait to get to the rest of them!  Sometimes, life just gets in the way, right?

Jayden and Alayna got cowboy hats while we were in Texas and fit right in when we arrived at the "dude" ranch (actually a guest ranch since the ranch did all the work and we had all the fun).

In the foto above, Jayden is patiently waiting on the porch for the wagon to take us to the horses so we can go horseback riding.

Below, Jayden and Alayna are modeling their new hats outside of the Marketplace in San Antonio.

One last foto below is of Alayna and Jayden sitting in a tree outside of our place at the "dude" ranch.

I can't wait to have some time to post more pics:)
