The Rest Of September!

On September 23rd Liam and I and met some friends at the gym for open play. This was the first time I had taken Liam and oh my goodness he was in heaven! Every Friday this gym has open play for an hour and a half and the kids pretty much do whatever they want and run all over the place.  Liam loves to jump so he spent most of his time on the trampoline, but checked everything else out too.






With Liam's little body not having a lot of stomach muscles I worry about him falling. If he bends backwards a bit too much then he can't bring himself forward and will just fall. He does amazing though and knows his limitations. He depends on his back muscles a lot so I hope he never has a bad back. Watching him figure out how to get out of the foam pit was so cute. He would not let me help him♥


Liam had so much fun and wouldn't leave when our time was up, so we were the very last ones to leave. We have 9 more passes so I'm sure we will be here a lot!

Later that night Avery had the 2nd grade pot luck dinner. There are 3 classes and there were a TON of people. We sat in the back next to food, of course, and thank goodness we did because the line was crazy long! Avery would zip all over the place gathering all kinds of fun things. Each class had made a hat according to their class animal and also practiced their class cheer. Avery's class were the roosters and their hats were seriously adorable! 



Ave and her cute friend Eleana♥

After all the classes did their little cheers, they all got together for the school song.

Right before the song and during I could hear someones kid crying and throwing a fit, it was honestly so annoying. So I looked to see what was going on and sure enough, it was my kid of course! Liam wanted one of the rooster hats sooooo bad and was over by the big silver box trying to get one when Linc went over and was trying to bring him back to us! Liam was screaming and would not stand up so Linc decided to just drag him!! Right after that Liam went running full speed towards the tables the food was on. You know when you can see what is going to happen, but just are not fast enough to prevent it? Sure enough Liam SMACKED the table with his face, the force of the blow knocked him off his feet and right onto his back! It was so time to leave by then. He was fine, just a little bloody lip, I honestly thought we were in for another ER trip with how hard he hit the table. When Ave came back she let Liam wear her hat and he was in heaven. Can't wait for the next pot luck!



The next day was Saturday, so of course we went back to Sea World. It is still sooo hot here and the water park is closed, but then have an amazing splash pad! Liam likes pools, but not so much splash pads. He doesn't like the fact that he gets sprayed. Jared took him around for a bit while I followed the other two. 







I'm not even going to ask.


Then it was my turn with Liam so we went to the top and saw Cookie Monster!! 


While we were up there Liam looked down and saw Big Bird so of course we had to go see him too.


When we got up to him Liam wanted nothing to do with him, he wouldn't even touch him!



The X-Game's People were still there so we went back to watch the show since it wasn't raining this time.

Jared and Linc were finally able to ride the water ride. Lincoln was sooo excited, he is my little dare devil. While Jared and Linc waited in Line, Ave, Liam, and I went down to watch them. Avery wanted to stand in the splash area and had soooo much fun getting drenched each time a boat would fly down! Liam wanted nothing to do with it. He would go by Ave, but as soon as I told him a boat was coming he would run as fast as he could to me so he wouldn't get sprayed, such a doll!

Linc wanted to do it again, but it was time to keep moving! He loved it♥


We had so much fun, again, and can't wait for next month when all the Halloween stuff comes out!

One of Liam most prized possessions  is the Primary Song Book. We sing from it everyday and he walks around carrying it and singing at the top of his lungs, but if you look at him he will immediately stop singing! It is seriously the cutest thing ever.  Don't mind all the kids and the laundry in the back ground, it was laundry day and our house is the neighborhood hang out. 



The last day of September I was asked to host a bow making night for the girls in our ward. It was soooo much fun! We are missing some ladies in this picture, but I can't wait till we can do it again! We were here till 1:45a.m. when we made ourselves go home and to bed♥


September was a blast and I can't wait for October!

Saturday At Sea World Of Course!

After a very long summer with no rain, being on drought restrictions (still on) we finally got some rain!! Jared had what we like to call the Golden Weekend, which is on call Thursday - Post call Friday with the weekend off! So Saturday we all slept in and had a lazy morning, it was awesome! By about noon we decided to go to Sea World for the rest of the afternoon. It was the perfect day, overcast with sprinkle of rain every now and then with high 80's to low 90's. They are building a new water park called Aquatica and we honestly are peeing our pant with excitement! 
They had a little pool with baby Sting Rays swimming around for you to touch, the kids loved it!



We asked the kids what they wanted to do first and they yelled, "Bay Of Play"! So we headed over to where the kids rides/toys were.  The always love to climb on the rope jungle gym thing and thank goodness Jared is here to take Liam, I have managed to stay off this thing so far! Lucky for them Burt and Ernie were making an appearance up top.




They love this ride, Abby Cadabbies rocken wave something. Anyway this is the one kid ride that makes me the sickest! I can hardly watch them on it without getting nauseated. Jared to the rescue again♥





The kids LOVE playing at the play ground here!







I don't think we can come here and I not take a picture of the boys looking out these holes, love them!





It started to sprinkle and we were all getting hungry after that so we headed over to Rosita's Pizza place. Not great, but sometimes beggars can't be choosier's.
We did get to watch the Steel Eel Roller Coaster as we ate though.



 





We wanted to make the 4 o'clock show since it was guys that have been on the X games so we hurried to get good seats, and we did. But because of the rain the show was put on hold for a little bit. Liam was SOOO ornery! He scooted all the way to the end of the bench and was giving me dirty looks, too funny. 



The performers came out and were checking out the half pipe and doing little things here and there waiting to see how the rain situation was going to go, that got a smile out of Liam.




The sprinkling of rain stopped and the ramp dried up. So they started their intro. Honestly they were so much fun to watch, even if it was for about 7 min. Then the rain sprinkling started again :( Oh well, Liam was so done by then anyway.



So we headed over to the Dolphins and just made their last feeding. It doesn't matter how many times you get to feed and touch a Dolphin, it is amazing EVERY time. I didn't get any pictures of Liam feeding them as he toss's his fish in like crazy and starts a feeding frenzy between the Dolphins!











We went to wash our hands since they smelled like "EWWWW" according to Liam who took a big wiff!


I finally had to pull Avery off the wall!


Off to the Shark Aquariums, and a little air conditioning.

We had so much fun, as always! Thanks Sea World for another great Saturday!

 I snapped this picture the night before, it was too cute not to. Every morning the kids and I read scriptures. I love this, and so do the kids. The only thing missing is Liam, who is sleeping, and Jared, who is at work. So every night Jared reads with the kids. Linc is usually under his bed playing, but listening. I know this because I always ask questions about the story we have just read and he always has the right answer. So I let him play. I am so grateful to have a husband that loves the gospel as much as I do, and knows the importance of reading the scriptures as a family. I love you Jared♥
