Here a Google, There a Google , EVERYWHERE there is Google

My friend Heather's blog led me to the Google reader where you can set up all the blogs you look at daily to see if there are new posts. Being the mom I am, time is limited, so Google Reader saves me a bunch of time! I no longer have to go into each persons blog page. With Google Reader I just look at my list of blogs and it tells me who has a new post. Then if I want to comment I can go into that specific blog. I haven't learned if there is anything else to do on there, you know since I don't have time to dink around, but just reading works for me. I also don't get to see everyone's pretty backgrounds when reading, but I am saving time, so at least I get to READ the blog in a timely fashion (aka not a week or 2 later when I finally get time to check it). You should try it out. Then all us moms will have time to save the world, or at least have our houses clean, that's a step toward world peace right?

Watkins Family Update

I know, I know, it has been FOR-E-VER (in the voice of the kid from "The Sandlot") since I have posted, but whoa, things have been crazy busy around here. Both Spencer and I have to check each others schedules every Sunday to make sure we have all our responsibilities covered. So I don't have a super long post with lots to say necessarily, but I will highlight a few of the more fun things that we have been busy with. It started with:

Max's FIRST haircut on April 10th (which was immediately followed with an injury near his eye of course):







Then it was Max's FIRST Birthday and little party April 25th:




Here he is on his actual birthday, April 26th, which we spent as a family and with some friends at a park in Maple Valley. Max loves to be thrown around, he is a dare devil already. I also included the mood swings of a now one year old (he also went to his 1 year check up and only weighs 19 pounds 6.5 ounces, which is the 10 percentile for weight. It is those Watkins genes!):






Next came Colin's 7th birthday on April 30th. He chose to have a couple of friends come with him to Chuck E. Cheese's. I don't have too many pictures because they were SO fast to grab tokens and run, I couldn't keep up with them. Lucky for me, my awesome friend Kamaile and her cute boy Marcus wanted to come too. If she hadn't have been there I don't know how I would have been able to handle all those kids!





And I leave you lastly with these adorable pics of Max watching Daddy mow the back yard and a clip of him taking some of those adorable first wobbly steps!!
