A Frozen Moment in Time

There are moments that freeze time. This picture is not great, but I was being all sneaky and trying to capture a moment in time, so I had to be quick, and I couldn't take the time to let people pose and put on weird smiles.... or, even turn around. It's just one of those times.

We really enjoyed our Spring Break trip to Austin. We were starving one afternoon, and found an old Applebee's restaurant, so we pulled in. There were other people sitting around watching basketball. The hostess sat us in a corner, right by the jukebox.

The jukebox was hanging on the wall, and we were immediately fascinated by it. The lights flashed along with the music and it was all push button friendly. Tons of CDs were inside with hundreds of songs to chose from.

My boys each had an opportunity to make a selection.

Mav and Jag made quick selections, both based on songs they recognized from Guitar Hero. We sat around and laughed about it, they all talked about whether or not they could play along on advanced or beginner levels. It's was funny. It was all 80's music.

Fox sat pretty quiet this whole time, not really having much input other than, he really wanted to hear some Carrie Underwood, because she's so pretty. He went on and on about it. I finally told him that I was pretty sure that jukebox had some Carrie Underwood on it, why didn't he go select something.

He takes his dollar and leaves the table, he's gone for a little while, checking out all the selections. He finally comes back to the table, and Aerosmith starts playing. I just looked at him, a bit puzzled and asked, 'I thought you were going to pick some Carrie Underwood.... what happened?'

His reply was unexpected, to say the least.

'The jukebox didn't have Cowboy Casanova, so I decided, never mind.'


  1. He IS the Cowboy Casanova!!! Love all those boys. There's not much that Foxy does do that doesn't have deep and intricate thought!

  2. Love your boys! I am constantly entertained & will miss them greatly next year...
