Naples Beach Trip

So, this was our first day in Naples. It was absolutely gorgeous! However, the next day we noticed there were a lot of big fish in the shallow water. Turns out they were trying to "beach themselves" to get out of the water because of toxic algae?? It is called "red tide." So, the next day we went to the local water park :) We loved it there, though! We even got two couples nights out to nice dinners thanks to bringing a baby-sitter with us for both families.

Disney Trip

Jack fell in love with Stitch during the trip. We had breakfast with his new buddy. Since then we rode the Stitch ride 5 times (it is not the best ride at Disney, so 5 times was A LOT!), bought a stuffed Stitch, Stitch hands, Stitch movie, you name it! So sweet!

I love this picture of Jack at the entrance to the Magic Kingdom. As you can see it was very crowded.

This picture was taken at the Princess Breakfast in Epcot. Ella had a blast seeing everyone, and Jack was a real trooper.

Disney Trip

Umm, March 27 was my last post. Crazy! Thank you, Sharon, for reminding me that I need to update my blog! Here are some pictures from our Disney Trip. My mom, Ella, Jack and I went to my favorite place in the world last month, and spent Jack's 5th bday there! We had SO MUCH FUN. After Disney, Kevin and the Cottons came to meet us and we all went to Naples for the week. We all had a really great trip. I loved Naples! Cannot wait to go back there, too! This first picture was taken at our hotel when we arrived. We stayed at the Polynesian. Fabulous!!!

Jack's Gardening Style

I went outside yesterday to bring my kids in from the rain and found Jack "watering" my tulips with his Nerf water blaster gun. IN THE RAIN! So cute.

Spring Break Fun

So, I am totally ready to get back into the normal routine. I was insanely happy tonight during our usual cook dinner/eat dinner/I clean up kitchen/Kevin bathes the boys/Ella showers/I make lunches/Playtime/Bedtime routine. However, we had a really good spring break and enjoyed the break from routine, too. We went to Jonesboro at the beginning of the week and had so much fun going to the Memphis Zoo and seeing family and friends. We came back on tuesday and just chilled. Ella and I had a girl's day on Friday. We shopped a lot, had a great lady lunch, ran lots of errands and went to Orange Mango. Fabulous! I really love my little girl!! Here are some pictures of our trip to the zoo in Memphis.

Mardi Gras!!

We celebrated Mardi Gras last week with a mask making party, some Zydeco music, a parade and the kid's favorite party dinner-breakfast for dinner. This is all of the kids (plus Ella's friend) making their masks.This is the finished product! Ella and her buddy's were very girly and sparkly. Jack was not feeling the glitter glue and feathers, so we made his by tracing his hands and gluing them together. So cute! Here is the king cake! Ella got the baby, which I told her means she will have good luck for a year. I'm not sure if that is 100% correct, but I thought it sounded good! Jack got upset, so I got him "another" piece and stuffed the baby back into it. Voila! Everyone is happy! Kevin missed the whole shindig because he had to work :(

100 Days of School and 1 Lost Tooth!

Ella had the 100 days of school celebration at school and had to make a project of 100 things. So, she came up with the idea to have "100 pieces of Ella." We took a picture of her, blew it up and then cut it into 100 pieces. We had a lot of fun blinging the project up! Jack added to the picture with a power ranger morphin pose.

Ella lost her first top tooth! The tooth fairy brought her a whole dollar! She is dressed up as a cowgirl (hence the hat) because the theme of their 100 days of school celebration was rodeo roundup.
