3rd Year Already??

Both Carter and Addie were really into planting the garden this year. We were about a week delayed due to finding our garden had been infested by ants and had to be dealt with first!
The kids learned the difference between tiny seeds like lettuce and carrots...
versus the larger ones of corn, sunflowers and squash.
Oh yes.. and a Rollie Pollie that Carter proceeded to keep with him the rest of the day in a plastic cup. Don't worry, Carter gave him plenty of water and grass breaks during the day.
We ate our first ripe, mini strawberries after breakfast today!

A Much Anticipated Baby Shower.

This was a special party the 10 of us hostesses had been waiting to be able to throw for a while and were delighted with how happy and glowing Cara was!

3 days prior to the shower, our good friend was put on sudden bed rest and 3 days post the shower, she was admitted to the hospital for confined strict bed rest due to placenta previa. Baby "Mac" and she are just fine and at 33 weeks today, he could show up any moment or hopefully not until her 36th week! Either way, we are excited to meet the little man and I can't wait to see Cara and Anthony as parents!

Traveling To The Happiest Place On Earth.

At 6:15 Saturday morning we were loaded up and had time to pull our very last loop off our countdown chain Aunt Julie had made us. The big day was finally here!
 Uncle Mike picked us up and took us to the airport. He even made a special stop on the way...
 Thank you, Mike, for helping make the start of our our big vacation truly as smooth as possible. 
 Addie and Carter did a great job waiting in the LONG Spring Break airport lines.
 Once we made it through security, we found the other 11 waiting for us so we watched the airplanes come in and out.
 Their were definitely some BIG SMILES in the boarding line from everyone.
 

I loved how Marshall and Carter's bags looked in the over head bins.
 The greeting at baggage claim...
 Priceless picture: The boys when they first saw the MAIN DISNEY WORLD entrance. Good thing you weren't IN THE CAR to hear it! ;)

Swim Lessons!

Since "Bubba" has recently finished playing basketball and just started his second season of soccer, I asked Addie if she wanted to do anything. I asked her if she wanted to play a sport like soccer, she said, "NO." I asked her if she wanted to do gymnastics or dance and she said, "NO." I asked her if she wants to do swimming and she said a confident, "YES."

So here we are, just a few weeks later, at our first big kid swim class.
She was so proud when she got out of the pool and ran over to me!

A "MAGIKal" Night

Carter and I were lucky to be invited by the Metcalf family for our very first trip to the Magik Theatre. It blew any expectations I had out of the water and was one of the most fun activities for BOTH Carter and I that we've EVER done together. We will defintley be season pass holders next year and I can't wait to take Addie soon!
Our seats and Carter enjoying his M&M's!
Carter's favorite character, The Moose!
Getting autographs after the show!

"Chatty Cathy"

Many comments have been made of the last few months comparing Addie to "Chatty Cathy" and I was laughing out loud when I found out who Cathy was on YouTube.  The difference with our sweet Addie is you can't turn her off! ;)
Addie's talking over the last 6 weeks has EXPLODED!
She is talking in complete sentences with 10-12 words on average. Her enunciation is extremely clear and when she is really passionate about telling you something or correcting you, she gets both fists going and is VERY serious. I have got to catch it on video for the memory book.

Quest For The Perfect Suit.

A girl must start in February to find just the right one. I wish I had a personal shopper for myself that allowed me to try them on in the comfort of my own home.
