Jim's Birthday..

We all went out to dinner for Jims birthday at Texas Land and Cattle. A few of us went back to Jim and Mandys to play some RockBand..a new found favourite of mine.

...still trying to figure things out, though.

The guitar is my not that great at the drums and im too scared to sing in front of people...even though they make me.

i just realized while posting these pictures that i was wearing my shirt that says "A Freakin Rockstar" if you click on this picture you can see it.

Andrew and Mandy.

Jarrett on the mic, Jim on the drums, and Andrew on the lead guitar.

cool, drew. hahaa.

uhhh. zoolander faces?

Mandy and her mom were a little hyper...

Greatest picture of the night...mandy, youre hilarious. im trying to post this in as many places as i can.

Trip to Ohio..

Here's the trip to Ohio for Easter weekend..completely backwards. i dont like how blogspot uploads photos. i guess i should be used to it by now, but sometimes i forget before its too late. Dad and i went to the Natural History Museum.

you otter go there (a-hyuck!)

he was gooorgeous.

the seeds! one of my favourite sets of old school art in downtown cleveland, along with the Free Stamp.

little jessie apple seed sprouting.

my favourite little family. okay, maybe they are not so little of a family more due next month!!

a series of funny face shots. gotta love them dorman kids.

apparently vomiting is funny to kate.

joshy was my favourite..he kept comparing his funny face to his big brother and sister's faces to make sure his was good enough.


kate simply covering all her bases.

and again.

this is hilarious..i said "okay, happy faces!" and right away kate put on a big ol' grin, but i guess forgot where her hands were. yet joshy is still happy as a clam.

now our turn for funny faces! what else is new?


Pops and i went to a Pink Floyd tribute band at the House of Blues. they were really pretty good.

my beyooful momma at Thai Spice. daannggg good thai food! i highly endorse it.

Botanical Gardens...

Tony and i went to the Botanical Gardens at Zilker park on our lovely saturday for a picnic!

There was a cactus sale where tons of cactus gypsies sold their plants. and i have neevverrr seen so many weird and gorgeous cacti in my life. this ones call Baby Toes. and it felt like baby toes.

just a few out of a few hundred. these were only 5-10 dollars mostly.

how fun is this!? i wanted to eat it. it doesnt even have spikes! silly cactus.

thiiiis! we loved this, and talked to the cactus expert lady for about twenty minutes. this tree is called an adenium, also known as a desert rose. goofy me, i should have taken a picture of the trunk, which was one of the coolest parts about it. it was only about 3 feet tall and its 20 years old!

but look at that flower it makes. this particular tree was going for $120. whew.

these were super cool, too. this is actually two completely different types of cacti, the top colourful part is a cactus that does not produce chlorophyll. it is manually grafted onto this regular cactus so it is actually living off of the bottom part. like a host. apparantly its very hard to maybe she was just trying to sell it to us ;)

big ol' feeshes. can click on this picture to zoom into that leg muscle, if you want ;)

pretty cool..kinda trippy.

i just liked the ivy. and the boy.

hehehee! i love these next few shots.

oh so bashful.

my turn.

"oh hey..look at this pretty little pink flower.......

uh oh... i know that look......

dangit, tony."

i looove how clear the little feelers came through in this photo. click on this picture to see it closer, its great.

yep. corny. you should love it by now.

hahaha! i had to. it was perfect.

it looks plastic but its totally real, i promise.

i want some of these trees all over the inside of my house.

photo credit: Tony.

this is what happened after i said i wanted a book for a prop... its called an imagination.

i think he was imagining flying for this one..

love this one. ugh. silly boot. (he took a line drive to the ankle)


not so deep.


it was a fun arch. im thinking it will be in more pictures in the future. definitely.
