Getting their ears lowered

My dad always referred to getting a haircut as "getting your ears lowered." That's what our boys got to do on Friday.
First, we spent the morning at the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in Scottsdale. That happened kind of by mistake. We were going to spend the day at the Children's Museum of Phoenix but on the way there I missed the freeway turnoff and as we got off the freeway to turn around I asked the boys if they would rather keep going and go to the train park. The vote was unanimous.

We brought our lunch and enjoyed a picnic in the lovely, (almost cold) weather, as we waved to the train whenever it passed by.

And of course they got to ride the train!

And I took random pictures of my handsome boys.

 Then we headed west to Phoenix to see Cabrena at her fancy salon in the heart of the downtown culture/sports district.

Now watch as they magically grow up, right before your very eyes.

Ryan Before:
 Look how little he is in the big chair! Cabrena had to sit him on a pile of towels so he would be tall enough.

Ryan After:

Amazing right? They both look a year older and stylish as can be.

I'm suddenly missing my babies. Where did they go? It's a good thing we have a new one joining us soon. These sweet boys are growing up way to fast!

It's amazing how a hair cut can make a little boy look so much older. Cute, cute boys and cute, cute pictures!
