Saturday evening Dustin and Mike (Jen's dad) headed to the Real Salt Lake soccer game - the Krotosky's helped score us some free tickets (thanks again!). The stadium was finished last October and holds 20,000 people. Luckily the rain had stopped!
The men had a blast - the Real Salt Lake apparently dominated the whole game and won 6-0. Dustin even came home with a mini soccer uniform that he bought for Zach to wear. I expect we will be hitting up some more games this summer!
Sunday was another miserable weather day - this day was dedicated to chick flicks and shopping. Yup - the girls headed to the movies and then Kohl's. They actually spent more time shopping in Kohl's then they did going and watching the movie. The women came home to find Zach sitting in his highchair eating thin mint girl scout cookies while the men were glued to the TV watching the discovery channel.
It was nice to have an 'excuse' to stay in side and just hang out and catch up on life. Janice and Mike headed back to California early Monday morning. We sure hope Delta has some cheap fares again REAL SOON! Zach tried to stow away in the carry on luggage:

Believe it or not these two signs were next to each other. Don't they contradict themselves? If you aren't suppose to be parked or waiting then how can you turn off your car and be 'idle free'?

Height = 32 inches; 75th percentile
Weight = 23.6 pounds; 25th percentile (he's been at 23 pounds for 6 months now...)
Head = 47.5cm; 50th percentile
So he is getting tall and skinny. The doctor still doesn't seem concerned that he had stayed at the 23 pound mark for almost 6 months now - he just says Zach is active!
Side note....about 5 weeks ago he had this mark on his finger that blistered - it looked like a burn but it wasn't painful when we touched it. So it scarred up. This is what it looked like:
Well today he has ANOTHER mark like that on the same finger just more towards the middle section of the finger - it still looks like a burn but it isn't a burn. So we will nurse it with some antibotics and see how it goes! The same finger today:

Thanks to the Bigbees, Megerles, Pinzons, Ross, and Kwang for joining us for our send off....
Luckily all our flights were on time (I love Southwest) - Zach had fun "walking" on the moving walkways in the Denver airport for our layover.

Also with all the rain Austin had been getting, that meant almost 100% humidity....Jen's hair was having a bit of fun....curls!!!
This evening was Veronica's wedding! Our entire trip was planned around attending this wedding. Veronica Martinez and Eugene Thomason were married at the Star Ranch Golf Club in Hutto, Texas. This place was gorgeous! Even though it had rained most of the trip it cleared up for the wedding. Check out these pictures!
We had a blast at the wedding - lots of old friend to catch up with. Most of these people had not met Zach yet. I can't remember the last time we had been to a non-LDS wedding. Veronica and Eugene knew how to party! Here are some of our favorite shots:
Congrats Veronica and Eugene!

When we were living in Austin a bunch of Jen's co-workers would get together for poker night about once every month or so. We even headed to Las Vegas a few times with this crew! Now several of us have had kids and some of us moved away (us) so the poker nights aren't as frequent...but they make sure to have one when we are in town visiting!
We were party animals - out until 1am!!!! Wahoooooooooooooooooo!

We finished up the evening with dinner at Red Robin with the Megerle's and the Scotts. Kids eat free all the time at Red Robin in Austin....so between the three families there were seven adults and seven children....and all the kids did eat FREE!

Day#1 - Plane ride from SLC to AUS! This was by far Zach's longest plane ride...almost 3.5 hours with the stop in Phoenix along the way (got to love Southwest Airline routes). Of all days - TODAY Zach decided to wake up at 5:30am....so his whole schedule was thrown off - and we managed to get him to sleep on the second leg of the flight.
We stayed at Kwang's house for our stay....he graciously picked us up from the airport in his rented mini-van. We were going to meet up with some friends in South Austin for dinner at Chuy's (they put a new one in down in south Austin after we moved....boo). Since dinner was planned for 7pm and by the time we got our luggage and hit the road from the airport it was 4pm. We decided to head the Pinzon house and hang out before dinner. They have an awesome backyard with lots of boy toys that Zach loved. All the kids LOVED to play with Kwang....Zach included (check out the smile on his face!).
Dinner at Chuy's was AWESOME....Jen got her "Chuychanga with queso" fix.

I was laughing out loud over this:
For those of you that truely know Dustin...you wouldn't be surprised over this next video:
Using Zach's high chair like a hotrod and cruising Zach around the house..
Not a surprise in this house. ;-)

The day turned out to be beautiful so we decided to head back to Hogle Zoo. More animals were out this trip. :)
