Sea World

Back in May we decided to go to Sea World as a family cause Wyatt had been begging to go and Jordan and I hadn't been there since we were little. It was so much fun!
Our first stop was the Dolphins and Wyatt was absolutely mesmerized!
Getting ready to feed the sting ray.

The Death Grip. Jordan kept trying to get Wyatt to touch the sting rays and he was so afraid that he had a death grip on the back of Jordan's shirt and I thought it was so cute, I had to take a picture.
He was afraid of touching the starfish at first too, until he saw another little kid come up with no fear and pick it up so he figured he could do it too.
By Far the Best Part of the Day! The SHAMU SHOW! We were so naive we thought, oh that's weird that the front row seats are open, I wonder why? Well you can see why, we got drenched. They don't call it the Soak Zone for nothing. But actually getting splashed by Shamu made it that much more fun and Wyatt could not get enough, he kept yelling out for Shamu to splash us again.

Ok this evil bird in the background of this picture totally attached me. I went up to the Kiosk to buy fish to feed to the Sea Lions and on my way back, this bird swooped down and hit the back of my head throwing my hat to the ground and all the fish in my hands as well. Once the fish hit the ground about 20 birds swarmed to eat. It was hillarious, everyone was of course starring at me and as I was the laughing stock of the Sea Lion exhibit.
Feeding the Sea Lions was our second favorite part. They are so cute and have so much personality. As long as you can watch out for the birds, you are okay.
Little Baby Urban at 4 months old was such a trooper.
Mommy and my boys at the Polar Bear Exhibit.
Got to love this picture! If you can see, Jordan took this picture at the perfect time when this poor Polar Bear was trying to relieve himself.
The Baluga whales were so cool! They are amazing and if I were to swim with any animal there and pay to do the interaction, I would love to do it with these beautiful whales.

Mother's Day 2009

Wyatt loves Uncle Ryan so much he copies every move he makes! So cute, I love this picture. Wyatt wants so bad to be big and grown up like him.
For Preschool they had a mother's day party at the park where we made these adorable tissue paper hats and took these cheesy pictures with our kids. It was so much fun and I love this picture with me and my boys, the loves of my life!
I took the kids to Color me mine where they got paint something for Grandma for Mothers Day. She was there to help and join in the fun. Wyatt had fun but of course was so careful not to get any paint on himself. My little neat freak!
Grandma and her boys at Color Me Mine! The platter turned out adorable with a little help from Grandma. But she loves it and it sits on her counter everyday to remind her of these precious little ones, with their handprints inside.

Easter Festivities 2009

Easter was a lot of fun this year with Wyatt cause he was starting to realize that there were actually candies and gifts inside the eggs however it still took a lot of coaching to get his competitive spirit out to race and get as many eggs as possible. He liked to take his time and hand pick which ones looked the best. These are a little out of order, but here is me and Urban, 3 months old at Wyatt's preschool easter party at the park.
Morgan and Tyler's birthday party included and Easter Egg hunt with all the cousins. Here are all the kids lined up and ready for us to say "Go".
Wyatt showing his belly for the camera, like father, like son! While standing between his best buds, Avery and Kamryn.
On your marks, get set, GO! And Wyatt just stands there with his hands in his pants. lol
With a little help from daddy and his sweet easter basket that we made at preschool, he got the hang of it.
He realized he should start running if he wanted to get more, so he's off to the next lawn for more.
Comparing who has more and who has the best ones.
Little sweet snuggle bug in a rug, Urban.
After the party, we headed to the park across from Avery's house where they had a fun petting zoo.
Wyatt chased around the little chick.
Sat and gazed at the mini horse for a while wondering if it was Rob and Big's?
Our little family of 4 with the Easter Bunny!
My two little precious boys!
Wyatt asks to hold Urban at least 5 times a day, he loves his baby brother.
On to the next Easter Egg hunt at Grandma and Papa's park.
Easter Morning at our house. We kept the tradition we had growing up of the Easter Bunny hiding our easter basket somewhere in the house. It makes for a fun time trying to find where it's at. And he found it!
Yea! The Easter Bunny brought lots of Water Guns!
Urban taking it all in.
Just waiting to be squirt by Wyatt!
And a new camera to take pictures of Urban, just like mommys. I think his fake one probably takes better pictures than mine. lol
Daddy with his sweet neon yellow cast on his arm that he broke dirt bike riding, first time on his dirt bike. Ya as you guessed it, this cast only lasted a week and was sawed off in the garage.
Stink Bug! My favorite position that Urban loved to fall asleep in.
This was at Wyatt's preschool Easter party, where they had a bike and scooter parade. All the kids decorated their bikes with streamers except you know who. He refused, instead he wanted to be the fastest bike rider in the parade and he was.

First Easter Egg hunt of the season and he loved it!
He definitely loved the challenge and would much rather find the hard to find ones instead of the ones just lying on the ground.
Yea! I love Easter!

First Day of Preschool

Can you believe it, I am finally starting to update my blog. I have to go all the way back to April but its a start. I am making a goal of doing a post a day until I get caught up!

This is Wyatt's first day of Mommy and me Preschool. Lindsey and I signed up to take the kids once a week in Diamond Bar for some crafts, singing and sharing time with other kids there age.
Here is best buds and second cousins Wyatt and Avery!
It was Dentist Day, so they had a dentist come to talk about how to take care of your teeth and Avery loved this pretend dentist girl.
During singing time, the kids sit on mommy's lap. I had both Avery and Wyatt as Lindsey stood back to take care of our little babies Ethan and Urban sleeping away.

One of Wyatt's favorite songs where the crocadile eats the monkeys.
Although they were a little shy and reserved at first, it didn't take long before they were their crazy selves.
Closely listening to what Mrs. Dorothy had to say next.
