Baby Animal Days at the American West Heritage Center

Some fun pics of the day at Baby Animal Days!  I never go as I am soooo allergic to almost every animal, but Trav thoroughly enjoys taking the kiddos each year.  This year Sarah our nanny was kind enough to tag along and help Trav with the twins.  With events like these, more hands is ALWAYS a good idea.

My First Hair Cut

Well, I did it.  I finally got the courage to cut my hair for the first time since chemo.  This was almost more nerve racking than shaving my head just over a year ago!  I wanted to keep this hair and I'd worked hard to grow it out to this point 9 months later.  I had my friend Cassie Dekorver do it for me and she was kind enough to help me document this next stepping stone in my cancer recovery process.

Foil Time for Fun Color

Interesting tid bits that I learned from Cassie..... it is always good to wait at least 6 months from your last chemo treatment before coloring hair to insure it is healthy enough.  Also, have your stylist do a test piece of hair for your color.  Hair that grows after chemo may take color differently than expected and will often turn out orange or some other color.  Cassie did a test piece and when it turned out good we went ahead and did the whole thing.  It was crazy to me how much we cut off the bottom of my hair.  Guess it had to go sometime!  I had to get rid of the mullet look and start working on growing it out into a sassy bob!
