For Halloween this year the kids (Mostly Kaden) wanted to go to Sea World again. This time he had a mission to tell Shamu that he was going to be a big brother. He is so proud of that. When he gave him a hug he told him and also when we saw him swimming in his water he told him again. He was so cute!

They got to go trick-or-treating at different stations. Tristen went with Mema to ride on rides while Kaden collected all the candy! They got to pet snakes and other reptiles and saw a huge tarantula and a huge millipede.(gross!) They had fun seeing the different animals they brought out.

Our tickets are only good until the end of the year so we are using them as much a possible!

Our Three Year Journey

Sunday night I found out that we are going to have a baby! We are so excited about the great news! We have been trying for the past three years with no luck. We have even been through some fertility drugs to help push us along. Last year I got tired of the pills and decided I would lose weight before we tried again. 60 pounds lost and we get the happy news! We are thrilled! Tristen wants a sister so I am not outnumbered (great kid) and Kaden just wants to be Shredder. (He's been watching Ninja Turtles at night) They are both excited that they told everyone they saw before we even told the family. We are due in late June:) Right when the blazing heat hits but that's ok because the blessing is better! We are so excited with our next addition to the family!

4 Wheeling Family Fun!

We went out by Sycamore Creek early Saturday morning to beat the heat and have some fun on our new toys! Kaden and Tristen both took turns riding on the faster quad with Adam. Adams quad goes twice as fast as mine but mine can hold more kids:)
Kaden got to drive. He pressed on the gas once and we jerked forward so he just wanted to steer.

Tristen did really well driving. He tries to go fast but with Kaden in the middle I didn't want him to go to fast so he kept a steady pace and did great. He didn't even run into any trees (bushes)!
It was a great morning!

Jamba Juice

Exciting morning trip to Jamba Juice!
Buy one get one free makes everyone happy:)

Kaden and Shamu

We were sitting at the top of the stadium waiting for the Sea World fireworks to start. Shamu was jumping out of the water doing tricks and everyone was applauding... Everyone but Kaden!

Kaden... "Booooooo" with his hand cupped around his mouth "Booooo"
Mom... "Why are you booing shamu?"
Kaden... "Because he gave me Chicken Nuggets and I wanted a Hot Dog so BOOOOOOO!"
Mom... "I gave you the chicken nuggets."
Kaden... "Well then BOOOO to you too!"
Man I love that kid!!

Dinner with Gramzy

We had dinner at Gramzy's house tonight. She "made" the kids favorite... PIZZA!! The boys love going over there. We just never make it out that way. The kids played with Ryans dogs and we watched The Dog Wisperer. (I took mental notes!!) We had a great time! Thanks Gramzy and Grandpa!!

SeaWorld with the Kids!

We took the kids to SeaWorld and had a blast!
Right before we saw Shamu Kaden kept saying "I want to see the monkeys!" When Shamu jumped out of the water...

Kaden didn't mention the monkeys again!! A picture IS worth a thousand words!
The kids got to feed the Sea Lions

They loved to the sharks, the penguins and the polar bears! Kaden got pretty worn out so while he took alittle nap with Mema

While Adam, Tristen, and I went on the rides!!

We did go prepared. We had panchos that did NOT keep us dry!!

Mema took the kids to the play area, while Adam and I rode Shipwreck Rapids. We were soaked when we left the park! It was a great day!!
