Camping Fun

We took one last camping opportunity before it got too cold! Enjoyed our time but was glad to be home! The kids are so so so excited to sleep in the camper that they are up at dawn...seriously and don't go down to sleep until midnight! That is not exactly MY idea of relaxing trip! Avery did kill a green snake that had made its way close to our camper( reminder... any snake should be a dead if it can bite me or my offspring)!

Rachel's Pumpkin Farm Trip

One advantage of me being called off of work was getting to go with Rachel to the preschool trip to the pumpkin farm! It was loads of fun ! They had all kinds of things to do there! Petting zoo, playground areas, hay ride, educational things about chickens, concession with awesome lemonade, and all kinds of cute things! We had a great time but makes me not want to miss anymore fun outings!!!!!!!

Trick or Treat!

Trick or treat! The kids do not understand that concept! They know they open their bags and get some candy! This year we did visits to Mimi's and Grammy and Papa's on Saturday! I attempted to carry the girls up to the square on Friday was so crowded we got around 1/4th of the square and I gave up! Not worth a little candy!
Now I had a "Jessie" from Toy Story 3 and a " Princess Kitty"! Lydia was going to be Princess Peach from Mario Bros. The 7/8 was too tight so I "assumed" the 10/12 would fit. I did not try it on until Friday afternoon only to discover it 5 inches too long and falling off her shoulders! She handled it well and was fine wearing the old costume from last year and just "tweeking it to be a kitty and a princess! Whatever works!

Run To Me

I loved doing these pics! Just have the kids run and you take pics as fast as you can! Now I know we don't have a cool , expensive camera but the one we have did the joB! The secret is they were getting exercise and did not even know it!

My Baby is Four Years OLd

Happy Birthday to my sweet baby! Her birthday was July 3rd! Bless her, she wanted to go to Chucky Cheese! We went and hugging Chucky was the best thing! We did not do birthday party and now at hindsite i am feeling bad. Rachel deserves a birthday party with people invited just like Lydia! Even though she has a birthday on the July 3rd, I should not compromise for others convenience! Mistake #? on the " Mama why didn't you do this list". I will try to make it up... somehow! I love you 4 year old!

Fun Day at Sea

We had fun days at sea in between our stops just so we could relax! The kids loved Camp Carnival and I highly recommend it! i was nervous about the activities for the kids but the staff made me feel very comfortable! Even Rachel, our shy child, went with no problem. The first day she was hesitant but loved it after that!

Grand Caymen, Caymen Islands

We went to Tiki Beach Resort on Seven Mile Beach on Grand Caymen! Very relaxing. Rachel kept running from the water to her lounge chair thinking she saw a crab! Lydia played in the sand and water forever! She loved it! The waves were gentle due to the line of rocks off from the shore! lots of snorkeling! Don't you love Avery's sense of humor in the picture with the pirate!

Every place was hot but the breeze off the ocean helped! i saw a lizard but no one else did! Lydia got 2 small braids in her hair but wanted them out as soon as we got back to the ship!

Our 2010 cruise was great! The girls did great with the plane ride! They had so much fun being on the boat! Even the dining at night went better than I expected! We went to Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Ochos Rios! Seven days of go, Go, GO!!!!
Lydia had to try on a sombrero in Mexico , of course! Check out the next post to see Rachels!!!

Rachel and Lydia's school has finally come to an end so we can enjoy the summer! Hopefully lots of fun in the sun! I find I am not a mother of babies anymore! Excited to see where life leads us now! Soon extra activities will begin and a hectic schedule will begin. This summer may be my last relaxing one.....but that's okay!!!
