hands in the air

A couple of Saturdays ago we had soccer pictures made. Here is the team minus 3 of our players.

Then in looking back at my pictures from the game I noticed something funny about Kyle's arms. They are always flailing around when he kicks the ball. I think it is so funny.

Disney on Ice

Friday night we went to Disney on Ice. This show was Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey. It was good, I mean it is Disney, but not half as good as last year's show Let's Celebrate! The stories featured were the Lion King, the Little Mermaid, Lilo and Stitch and Peter Pan.

We were a few minutes late because Kaitlyn had her first middle school dance. They do the dances from 4-6 in the gym. I was not prepared for the pick up line. Anyway we missed the Lion King part (which apparently was not very long)

We won't even discuss how long it took me and how many pictures I had to take to get this shot!

We went to the airshow yesterday out in Millington. Kyle had a game at 11:00 so we were a little late getting there. John had gotten the VIP tickets so we could sit under the tent and have lunch with unlimited drinks. The traffic was horrible but luckily John knew a back way to get there so we made a Uey on 385 and went a different route.

My camera batteries started to blink red so I knew I had to save the little bit of juice I had left for the Blue Angels (stars of the show). I was very upset that I didn't have back up batteries on me. I didn't get a lot of pictures, even of the Blue Angels. Here are a few:

1st soccer game

Fall soccer has started. We are playing on the same team in Arlington. This year we have refs and do a coin toss at the beginning to see who goes first. We won 6-3, Kyle scored 2 goals. The whole team played really well. This year they have finally gotten the hang of staying spread apart and passing the ball.

Downtown fireworks

My cousin has a condo downtown that over looks the river. My aunt was spending some time there so my stepmom, her mom, me and the kids went down there. They were having some shindig on mud island for the 25th anniversary of lights being put on the bridge so they shot fireworks off about 9:00. We ordered pizza and sat out on the patio watching the sunset (which was really nice until the mosquitoes came out). I was really sad that I forgot to bring my big camera and tripod so I took all these with my phone.

Delta fair

We made our annual trip to the delta fair. We went on labor day which was a mistake because it was significantly more crowded than it is when we usually go. We usually go on the first Saturday morning right when it opens but John had to work this year.

We even met Jason Earles from the Disney channel

Kyle's birthday

Kyle's birthday was Thursday. He wanted some friends to eat pizza and go see the Smurfs with him. So he really wasn't going to have a party but it kinda turned into that. He had 3 friends join us at Stevie B's for pizza. Then my mom of course wanted to come, then I invited my brother and his wife. Then Kyle said "I need you to invite Aaliyah so Kaitlyn will have a friend and won't bother us", smart kid. So I called Lora and invited them. The kids ate pizza then played for a while then we went to see the Smurfs (non-3d). The movie was not as cute as I wanted it to be but Kyle liked it. After the movie we went to TCBY for ice cream.

I only had the camera on my phone in the theater and every time I tried to take Kyle's picture he ended up looking like a zombie. The flash is pretty bright on that thing.
