Boots for Muddy Puddles

On the way home from the zoo we stopped at the mall. We did not find what we were looking for, but we did come across these Jake boots on clearance.

Sean could not wait to start splashing in muddy puddles in his new boots!

This picture was taken from the safe side of the sliding glass door. Never trust a two year old with a hose!

Zoo Fun

We love our zoo passes! The kids have gotten to be little experts at the zoo. First stop? Feeding the ducks and birds that hang out with the flamingos.

After the Florida section of the zoo, we stopped for lunch and to splash in the fountain. Then we were off to Latin America. 

We stopped to feed the fish on the way to the monkeys.

This old car is always a stop. Sean told us he was driving to Ireland.

The Irishman and I were happy to sit on a bench in the shade while the kids ran through the fountain.

They had a blast!

Memorial Day Fun

Yesterday we went to my grandparents' house. It was the perfect long weekend fun!

The kids started in the little pool.

The Irishman was grill master for the day.

The little ones enjoyed puzzles with B.

This one isn't the best picture, but I wanted to show the flamingo plates and napkins.

After dinner we were all full and ready for bed...

even if there might have been a little acting involved. It was lovely!

"This is Morgana's first time playing Daddy's iPad."

Grammy sent Caitlin this doll for Easter. We discovered later that the name on the tag is actually "Morgana." Those two do everything together these days!

Lunch with Disney Junior

After several attempts, we finally got a reservation for Disney Junior Play 'n Dine. It was the very last thing we did before heading home.

(Sean wouldn't stand still for this picture, lol)

When they seated us they said it would take an hour and a half to see everyone. The first character wandered by about two minutes later. We actually managed to see everyone twice!

They loved Sophia.

Sean was more impressed with his food than Handy Manny.

The Doc is in!

My phone wouldn't take a picture the first time Jake came by. I would have had amazing shots, but the touch screen was acting up and I had to restart it all. I was so disappointed! This was the one they were most excited about. The pictures the second time were blurry.

They called all the kids over for a little dance and our two were all about it. 

They were tired and in need of a nap, but they had a blast!

Fun at Mommy's School

I have more pictures from Disney to post, but these are easier to get to right now. The other day I left something in my classroom. I took the kids back with me. 

We played in the worm composting bin.

We visited with the caterpillars and chyrsali.

Then we HAD to play with the marble run.

They didn't want to leave! I can only hope they feel the same in another 5 or so years!

Disney: Caitlin

I went to Mickey with Sean and missed the 100th or so visit to Ariel. Elsa and Anna had a 300 minute wait, but I heard they were in the parade. Caitlin usually has a very strict no parade policy, but she made an exception for her favorite Frozen sisters.

She LOVED it. She waved to everyone and declared it the best part of the trip.

Sunday we had passes to ride Toy Story. I *might* have appealed to my daughter's competitive side to get her to ride. She was so focused on beating us in the game that she forgot to get scared. 

This girl has personality!

Disney: Sean

My best friend from middle school and her family were at Disney last week. Our passes expire at the end of the month, so we drove up with the kids.

We split up a bit. Sean picked Mickey over Ariel this time. 

I have video of Sean and Mickey bouncing. It is quite cute.

Just before the Magic Carpets, Sean fell asleep. In the middle of the ride he work up. Fun times!

Little Sully met Big Sully on Sunday morning.

We had lunch with Disney Junior. Sean enjoyed using his farher's sleeve as a napkin.

Sean was out cold by the time we got to the car.

It was a great weekend!

Frozen Favorites

We went to a local shopping area for Frozen Fourth last weekend. The kids had a blast!
