I almost forgot...

I am so used to posting little factoids about Isaiah, sometimes I forget to post about NIck and myself.

Quick update...Nick is doing really well in his new role as Team Leader for Qwest in Boise. His center finished #1 in the company his first month. Way to set the bar high! His new job doesn't require as much travel, so that makes me very happy.

I passed my exam for the NASM Certified Personal Trainer course. I was so nervous because it encompassed so much information, I didn't know if I would remember each detail, but I DID! I don't plan on working in a traditional gym setting because I don't want to leave Isaiah, so I plan on hosting a couple of late summer bootcamps here in Boise. They would have 6-10 women who meet up 3 times a week in a park for a killer total body workout. I'll post more when I work out some of the details. Let me know if you are interested. Should be fun!

Warhawk Museum

Since Isaiah is such a fanatic about cars, trucks, airplanes, helicopters....etc, when I read about the Warhawk Museum in Nampa, I knew we had to take him there. It is filled with old war planes and WWII era military jeeps. Just as I thought, he had a great time. The only bad part was that he thought he could climb in the jeeps and drive like he does at the zoo. Notice the photo of him arching his back like a contortionist to grab the steering wheel. It will be fun to take him back in a few years when we can actually explain all the captions of the exhibits.

Mothers Day and Memorial Day at the Zoo.

So once again, I have fallen behind on my posts, and sadly I don't think this post will count as a full-fledged update either. I should have more spare time in the next week or so. In the meantime, here are some photos, including my Mother's Day T-Shirt that Isaiah handmade. He picked the t-shirt color and the paint out at Michael's with his dad. (can you imagine Nick pushing a cart through Michael's with Isaiah pulling everything off the shelves saying "Okay Buddy...what color do you think Mom would like?") Apparently, Isaiah knew exactly what he was doing and picked out the exact same color scheme as his own outfit! He then proceeded through the store holding the tube of fabric paint and waving the t-shirt singing "aaa MomMomMom" to all the craft ladies. It was one of the best days I have ever had. Mother's Day might be my new favorite holiday. I guess that explains my cheesy grin in the photos! Ha Ha!
