So much to tell!

Time for another update from the Bowman family. We have added to our little family since the last post. Our little baby Boston was born on Tuesday March 8th. We have had such a fun time getting to know him. Brennen and Bryson can't get enough of him, in fact it's getting a little annoying. They just can't leave him alone, always wanting to kiss him and love him. The poor little guy can't get a good nap with his brothers around that's for sure. I am doing great and love having a little newborn around again. I don't know what it is but i just love newborns. Their smell, soft skin, little toes and fingers, EVERYTHING about them. I couldn't have a whole bunch of them if Travis would let me. He is done already but not me! So here is what we have been up to this past month or so.....

Our 8th Anniversary

Just before I had Boston Travis and I celebrated our 8th anniversary. We celebrated by going to dinner and a movie but with a fun twist. We went to a new theatre called iPic Theatres in Scottsdale. I heard about it on TV so I thought I would surprise Travis and take him there for our anniversary. It was totally worth it too because it was AMAZING! We saw "Just Go With It" with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Anisten. The theatre had relining leather seats, blankets and pillows, our own waiter, free popcorn, and valet parking. We ordered our snacks before the movie and it came to us during the previews. Being 9 months pregnant, it was the best theatre experience EVER! I would recommend this place to anyone. We had a great time. I am so grateful for an amazing husband and excited for the next 8 plus years together. Love you babe!

Brennen t-ball party

Brennen finished t-ball and he had his end of the season party at Golf Land. He just loved that he got a really cool looking trophy and loved the cake. He is just like his Mom unfortunately. LOVES anything with SUGAR! He played really well and seemed to have a great time. I am sure we will sign him up again sometime.

Out with the old, in with a new SWEET MINI VAN!

So I am sure like a lot of you out there, I never thought I would some day be driving a mini van. But yes it's true I have given in to the easy in and out with the kids, the stow n' go feature, better gas mileage, remote doors, etc. etc. We are now proud owners of a Town and Country Crystler Mini Van. Yea for us!! But first we had to say our goodbyes to our cool, better looking ride, the Yukon. I will miss you so much. I will miss riding cool, now I am riding soccer Mom style.

Here she is. If I was going to ride in a mini van I had only one condition, it had to be black. So we waited an extra 4 months for a black one to finally come around. And we got it. Black just makes it looks so much better and not so lame, I think.

Just Dance

My sister's have introduced us to Just Dance on the wii. And we are now addicted. The boys love playing and are getting really good at it. I am hoping that it will help me lose a little baby weight too. We'll see. Here's us showing off our dancing skills.

Boston LaVon Bowman's Birthday

Boston LaVon was born Tuesday March 8, 2011 at 9:23am weighing in at a whopping 8lbs and 14oz and 21 1/2in long. What an amazing experience it was. My face says it all in one of the pics. Boston is such a special little man to us. We tried for almost a year for him to finally arrive. He was so worth the wait and the PAIN. I had a personal goal to have him all natural, no pain meds. And I did it! I can't tell you how proud I am of myself and so glad I did it. Pain and I don't get a long so for me to do this was a huge accomplishment for me. What an out of body experience it was. I look at him and can't be more in love.

The boys seeing him for the first time. So stinking cute, I got it all on the video camera.

Getting to know him and welcoming him to his new home.

Boston hanging out at home doing what he does best. He is almost 4 weeks old now and he is the best baby. I am so blessed to have this healthy little guys in my life. He sleeps good and only fusses when he is hungry or tired. I am so LUCKY!

Boston's New Born Pics

I had a ton of fun taking pics of my very own little new born. New borns are my favorite shoots to do and it was just even more fun with my own. Of course I took way too many and can't edit them all but here are all my favorites.

I had Travis' cousin Brittney Florence take some family pics for us. I love them! Thanks so much Brittney!

First swim of the season

On Monday of this week the new Skyline pool had their grand opening. Free swimming for a couple of hours. The boys have been so excited for it to open and every time we drive by they ask when they can swim there. So I just had to take them. Their so excited for summer to swim their little hearts out.

Thanks for the information. I think that you should wash your face at least 3 to 4 times a day. You’ll be surprised how much better your face will look.
