Gators and Friends...Again

We had so much fun last year when we took a trip to Gators and Friends, that we decided to have a repeat.  This year the twins even held a baby alligator!!!  They (again) really enjoyed the pony ride.

11 Years and Counting...

Drew and I celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary yesterday with a picnic and star gazing out at our friends' farm.  It was great to spend a little quality time with the guy I'm still glad I said yes to all those years ago.

The End of Pre-K 4

The twins have had so much fun in Ms. Hogan's Jungle this year.  They have learned so much in Pre-K 4, and I'm so grateful for such a sweet school.  I'm even more thankful that we still have one more year there!!  Since the twins have a late birthday, Drew and I have decided to bridge them.  They will do an extra year of preschool in Ms. Rogers' rainbow bridging class.

Spring Bash

The twins had their Spring Bash at St. Paul's this week.  Spring Bash is a lot like field day....there was frame decorating, musical chairs, gardening, a bike/scooter race, a jump house, firetruck washing, and snoballs.  It was a FUN day!

Happy Un-Birthday!

St. Paul's loves to celebrate birthdays.  Since the twins have a summer birthday, their sweet teacher Ms. Hogan asked if we would like to have an "un-birthday" celebration.  The twins, of course, thought this was hilarious!

The "Not So Much" Camp Out

We recently attempted our first camp out.  East Ridge was hosting its first annual camp out, so I, of course, signed us up!  We even bought a new tent.  We headed to East Ridge and the twins had a blast in the jumpy house, having their faces painted, eating snoballs, and hanging out with their friends, but it was starting to getting COLD!  Shortly after dinner, Emily managed to slide down a concrete hill on her knees.  After that, she was done!  I was done because I was cold and now had blood from Emily's knees on my white jeans.  So we packed it up and headed home for a camp out in the den.  Next year we will try to make it the whole night.
