A Tribute to Doing as Much as Possible!

Friday! Sea World with my parents. It was a scorcher (96 degrees in October?!), but we still had a great time checking the flamingos, sea lions, dolphins, alligators, sting rays, sharks, fish, frogs, manatees, penguins and so much more... and, of course, lets not forget the sand box!

In the evening our friends came in from Melbourne to celebrate Wesley's birthday and Casey had his first sleepover. How exciting! The boys spent about ten minutes when they first went to bed tattling on each other... "MOMMY, Casey's laughing!!!"... "MOMMY, Merrick's talking!!!" Too flipping cute. The big boys stayed up playing Rock Band, while Erin got her fill of Jessi's purple stained bundle of nummy nummy new baby.

Saturday! Wesley's birthday party!!! The little boys were tickled pink to throw a birthday party, so we brought them to Dollar Tree in the morning where they each picked out a mylar balloon, a present for daddy and party hats. I surprised Wes with food from his favorite restaurant and we all had a lovely afternoon watching football (and maybe playing just a little bit more Rock Band).

In the evening we packed up the kids and headed to Gainesville for the night to visit Wesley's parents and brother.

Sunday! A fun day with Grandma and Grandpa Mimi! The boys played in the yard, fed the fish, petted the guinea pigs (like the WonderPets, Mom!!!) and visited the park. Around dinner time we headed back to Orlando. Despite drive-thru snafus, tons of traffic and heavy rain we made it home by 7:30 and Wesley and I were able to enjoy a little bit of the evening to ourselves.

Monday! A visit to the vet for Izzie, followed by a trip to the pumpkin patch! The boys each picked out two baby pumpkins while I chose a whopper for carving. After the pumpkin patch we hit Old Navy for halloween costumes. How excited was I when the boys picked out lion and tiger outfits?! Hello! You'd better believe I got the new baby a bear costume!!! Yay!

Love the Halloween costume! We have to meet up at SeaWorld one of these days! I went on Saturday and it was pretty ridiculously hot and insanely crowded (the Halloween thing is going on).
