Beach Trip 08

The last week in May we went to Myrtle Beach, SC. My parents and Brother went. We were able to see some other family while we were there too. The weather was gorgeous and the kids had an absolute blast. I think it was one of the best weeks we have ever had.

We have taught them to say I love you this way. They do it all the time. The best is when I am driving away from preschool and I look back for a second to see their little fingers making this sign.

I love this feeling.

They were just so busy building sand castles, they caught 35 hermit crabs in one day, they did all kinds of stuff. They slept like rocks when we took them home.
They had to wear their undies because the sand/salt water combo rubbed the skin on their legs to the point of bleeding. I was a little uneasy about it at first but I got over it. Whatever.

A trip to the beach just would not be a trip to the beach without The Dixie Stampede. The kids loved it again and they go around acting it out at home.

One day it rained a little so we hit the aquarium. Abram got tired toward the end.

Preschool Graduation

My little man, Cason graduated from the 4 year old preschool. Now he will be going to 5 yr old preschool because he has a late birthday. I am happy about this!

Fake "Chhheeeezzzz" and what he really wants to say is, "Can we finish up these pictures already!?"

These are some of the other women in his life. Mrs. Grider and Mrs. Johnson, his preschool teachers.

Busch Gardens and Sesame Street

We went to Busch Gardens with Luder's firm in May. They have a cool VA fun pass that you can upgrade your one day ticket to so now we have season passes. The boys were amazed by the water and gardens throughout. They are so cute here together!

Ok, so this is my favorite memory of the day, or atleast one of them. The little girl atendee for the ride has to help the kids get in and out and it goes in a circle once. They have to get out when it comes back around. Well, when it is time to get out, Cason gets out and Abram turns his head to her. He won't get out or talk. I had to go in there and I said, "Abram, it's time to get out now." He said, "I not getting out now." He cracks me up. It was like if he ignored that girl, she would just let him cruise on by. How would she notice, right?

So, they got on this chocolate milk kick. I would let them have it if they had taken a "good rest" meaning Abram sleeps after jumping up and down in his crib for about 1/2 hr and Cason is quiet during his nap because he won't sleep. So, they asked for a straw out of the pantry and I guess they couldn't wait to get back to the table because I look over and they are sharing a cup of Cason's chocolate milk in the pantry.

OH MY GOSH! Grammy took them to see Sesame Street Live! They LOVED it! Scott came to watch them, watch it. They were so excited! It was cute. I have never seen so many preschool aged kids in my life. Wow!

When the characters came out on stage, I looked over and he was waving to them. So cute!

Luder's 31st!

I asked Luder's parents to come over for his birthday. They came and so did his Uncle T.W. and cousin Thomas. We had a good time sitting on the deck, visiting and eating.
These are my bosses. They are demanding and short but I love them!

Mountain Lake

I went to a training for Juice Plus this past weekend. It was awesome! They had it at Mountain Lake near Blacksburg. It was where the movie, Dirty Dancing was filmed.

This was our group, "The Comedy Club" the other people attending called us. It all started when we had introductions and my brother got up and told the whole group that he was a stay "at home Mom." It brought down the house and we laughed about stuff the whole time. It was a hilarious trip. I learned some too.

This was our cabin. We had a fire every night and it was placed on a ridge, it was neat. I got my brother to sneak around the porch the first night to scratch on our groups windows and scare them. This was after the bear stories of course.

This is Terri, Joey and Scott. Terri used to babysit me when I was around 2 yrs old. She has been close to our family for almost 30 years.

We went to the barn where the dance scene was filmed in the movie. They had a dance and tons of food for us. We acted crazy and danced until we were exhausted and sweaty.

Scott was teaching me how to swing and we were being silly.
