Sea World

On Tuesday, John and I took Kayden to Sea World. Someone John works with gave him 3 tickets, so we jumped at the opportunity for a day trip. We really had a lot of fun, and the park wasn't crowded, so it was very enjoyable. We rode some rides, and watched all the shows.
It is so neat to see her excitement for something like this. Well, I am 30 and I was probably just as excited, but she is at that age where things are just glorious!
It was a long day, but we all had a great time.


Watching the dolphins swim.

Gettin' a better view!

There is this huge play set and I thought it would be fun to go up this HUGE rope wall...Kayden was trying to give up on me and we had a long way to go. So....

Excuse the butt photo, but I had to carry her the rest of the way.

Playing with Daddy.

Shamu show was my favorite!


Aww, look, even shamu pretzels.



Kayden was not real thrilled about going on this, but John talked her into it. She was not happy at the end.






We went on a little kid roller coaster and at first she was fine, then she get terrified. I couldn't help laugh at her expressions.


They did have a little water play area, and she couldn't stand it, so she went in with clothes on.
Thanks Sea World! It was a blast!

For Grandmama and PawPaw

John's parents gave the girls a swing set together since their birthdays are so close. They were so excited for it to come and and Daddy to put it up. He was a little less thrilled about putting it together. But, it is up and we are on it everyday. Kayden is still trying to figure out the big two-seater. She can't keep it going. I can only explain it so many times. I know it will click one day.

Thanks Grandmama and PawPaw. The girls love it and more importantly, YOU!





And just some random pics...
I love this of the girls, they were just watching TV before bed one night. Thankfully, my camera was very handy to get to.

Just a sweet shot of my oldest.
And, a sweet shot of my baby.

Woo Hoo, Guess Who's Two?!

Today, my baby girl turned 2! Of course if you ask her she says she is either one or free (three). We are so blessed to have this little girl in our lives. She is such a sweet cuddle bug. She is full of spunk and makes us laugh. She is learning how to throw a fit, but also how to be polite.
We celebrated her birthday last weekend, and tonight we went out to eat with momma and daddy. We ate at smokin' pig (so yummy)! Here are some pics from each celebration and our trip to the pumpkin patch, I mean pumpkin tent.
Happy Birthday Brecken! I love you so much and thank God everyday for you.

She is really starting to look like a big girl to me.

Just a swingin' or rockin' in this case.

We had cupcakes for B's birthday last Sat.

She was a little confused while we were singing Happy Birthday to her.

My princess opening her gifts.

Yummy!


Kayden has been wanting to go pick out some pumpkins. Well, we don't have a really good one close by, so we decided to just go to one of those tents set up in front of Lowe's. Wasn't ideal, but we will take what we can get. I don't think we have ever really done this, so I had no idea how much pumpkins cost. I was thinking, maybe $5-$10 for the large ones. NOPE! The cheapest large one was $17!!!! Sorry, I guess I am cheap, so the girls picked out a small one each and we took some pics. Then, we went to Wal Mart and got 2 big ones for me and John which was cheaper than K and B's. I digress.
The girls had fun, and my need was fullfilled. So, here are the pics.



Happy Fall, Y'all!

TN cabin

We were able to meet John's parents, sister, niece and nephew this past weekend at their cabin on the TN river. The weather was wonderful, but the company was even better! We had a great time!
Since they won't see us again for a while, we had a birthday party for John, Brecken and Kayden.

Hannah and the girls had a great time playing in the leaves!


This is Bug, the dog.





Blowing out the candles

Presents...

We did a lot of golf cart riding.

Brecken didn't get to go out on the boat, so she got to sit in it with Daddy.
