Snap-Shot Moments

A quick pic of Gunner as I found him-with a raspberry marker beard, gloves and embellishments to his outfit. The little beastie had been going to town with a forbidden marker he purveyed from the big beasties. This is his "cheese" face.

Kit and I were able to have a night out for our anniversary, something we haven't done since Josiah joined our family. My brother, Mack, braved the energetic beasties and even cleaned up a "blow-out" situation courtesy of Gunnison. He was truly wonderful to give us that overnight freedom. Kit and I went out to dinner at Felix's Fish Camp where I devoured an Ahi Tuna steak on par with a lovely juicy beef steak-and for anyone who knows my tastes, that's saying something! We then spent the night in a nice hotel downtown and enjoyed sleeping in a bed without any extra little bodies cramming in. We also delighted in a morning where BOTH of us could sleep in...what bliss.

The next day Kit took me out to lunch at the Shed for fab barbeque, another favorite of mine. Yes, I am truly a hardcore carnivore. We had fun being silly, sharing PDA and simply being alone...together.

Not the cutest picture, it was hot and humid...flat hair, shiny faces...but, we were together and enjoying life!

Silliness-me kissing the Shed 'Gator

Father's Day- for Father's Day we decided to frost some special cupcakes just for Daddy. The boys went to town as you can see by Gun's blue beard and mustache. I think he has a thing for facial hair.

Josiah cheesin' it
Oh yum... be forewarned- do not eat anything Gavin frosts...this is just a part of his frosting technique.

Look out baking blogs...get a load of these beauties...decorated by the Applegate Beasties!

Gavin's own creation. Kit and Mack wisely left this for Gav to devour himself.

That sounds like tons of fun. I just barely braved a few nights without the kids for the first time in 4 1/2 years. And the picture of you and Kit is so beautiful/handsome. You are too hard on yourself. You both look great, seriously;)

You DO look fantastic!! Your hair is beautiful and so is your outfit. I bet Kit loved it... Your dinner sound yumm-o!! I am glad you got to eat out w/o the kiddos. Such fun!!
Thanks for the warning...(I think I had inclincling) about Gav's decorating prowess. I think he follows the Humphrey boys' frosting technique...ewww. How fun. The boys look adorable...Gun is defintely leaning towards facail, pink no difference to him (that should make Whit happy ;). Love you!

Coty said...
