Skate or Die!

While up in Grapevine over the 4th of July Mason discovered skateboarding! I think I am going to get him a skateboard so we can practice a little. Skateboarding was one of my favorite things to do when I was younger so it made me so happy that he took to riding.

10 Years

This last week was our 10 year anniversay and I can't believe how fast the time has gone. It has been a great 10 years and I look forward to many many more years! Your the best Nanz and I love you a ton! This is a picture from our trip last week in Cozumel Mexico.


This last Monday I had saw my favorite band Wilco play live. It has been a few years since I have seen them and now I remember why I like them so much. It was the best show that I have ever been to! If you get the chance to see Wilco you should definitely go and see them.

Camping Out with Mason!

Mason and I just got back from his first campout ever and he had a great time. Here are a few pictures to prove it! The weather for the most part was good except for a few hours when it rained like crazy There was also a ton of lighting and thunder which made for great entertainment while we sat in the tent waiting for the storm to pass over. Overall it was a fun time and Mason was so tired that he fell asleep for the entire drive back to Austin!

My Dream Car

I first saw the Smart Car a few months ago on my commute home from work and have been obsessed with them ever since. The Smart Car hit the streets in American at the begging of 2008 and they have drawn a lot of attention. They start at $11,590 which is not to bad. They get 33 miles to the gallon in the city and 40 miles to the gallon on the highway. The total length of the car is 8.8 feet. Considering my commute each day, this might not be a bad option!

Dressing Up for Easter

It is Cottam tradition for the kids to get a new outfit for Easter Sunday each year. Both Maya and Mason looked so cute today and they even let me take a few pictures before church today. Happy Easter everyone!

New Painting For The House

A few weeks ago I came across this painting on the internet and thought that it would be cool to have for the house. I love any and all pictures of VW buses. I contacted the local Austin artist to inquire about the painting and ended up purchasing the original painting yesterday. It is 24 x 24 on a canvas frame and looks even better in person. Kim Edge is the Austin artist and she has some really cool paintings on her blog.
