Safety Town

A couple of weeks ago I took the boys to a place called Safety Town. It is at a fire station in a neighboring city where all the kids got a tour and got to try on the firemen uniform and learn all sorts of cool things about the truck and the things in it. They also have a 5/8th scale town that looks like a normal town with stop lights and everything. It has a bank, a courthouse, wal-mart, church, houses, doctors office, and all sorts of little buildings. When they kids are older they have a program that teaches them safety and then the kids get to drive around little jeeps like powerwheels and remember what they learned about safety. It was so much fun and the kids really enjoyed it. Can't wait for them to get a little older so they can drive the cars around. Here are some pics of our fun.

Luke was a little nervous.


My baby is almost 10 months old already. I can hardly believe it. I took him to his 9month check up and these are his stats.

9 month stats:
weight: 15 lbs 13 oz (not even on the charts)
height: 28 3/4in (50-75%)

As you can tell from his stats he is a tiny little thing, or should I say skinny. Our goal is to gain some weight. He is still such a happy little guy and content to just sit in his car seat when we are out at places. He is crawling everywhere and is so fast. He follows Cameron and Luke from room to room and loves watching them play. He pulls himself to standing on everything, the wall, the stairs, cupboards, you name it he is standing against it. He is always on the go. He loves to eat table foods now and tries new things to eat almost daily. He gives wet sloppery kisses (my favorite). He loves his momma and is a momma's boy. He loves to make noises, squeals, and knows how to get my attention. I know I say this all the time but he is growing way to fast. I am loving every minute with him. I love this sweet little guy!!

Still loves to stick that tongue out.
kind of blurry but I just love that gummy smile.

Yeah, I know these are way late but I still wanted to share them.

We had some friends come over to decorate eggs and had a blast.
Little monsters, I mean finished eggs!!

This year we had our ward egg hunt on the same day and time that Cameron had a soccer game. So I took Luke and Owen to the ward hunt and Reid took Cameron to his game. Since I took Luke and Owen by myself, Luke's buddy Skylar helped him get some eggs during the hunt. Luke loves Skylar and they have a really cute bond, Yes Skylar is 14 but he is so sweet with Luke and they have become best buds. Skylar will come find Luke every Sunday to say hi, Luke adores him.

Owen just waking up from a nap in the carseat, he missed the whole egg hunt.

We also went to an egg hunt led by the city so Cameron could have a chance to go on an egg hunt. They both got tons of eggs and had a blast doing it. The boys were so excited Easter morning when they found bubbles and waterguns. (they think the Easter bunny always brings bubbles so I had to keep that going)
Cameron checking out what he got.
Owen loves his stacker.
Luke showing what he got
Nana sent each of the boys a Dr. Seuss book with a coordinating character. Cameron and Luke have been carrying their characters around with them all over the house. The characters were a big hit. Owen is still not sure about his yet but I am sure that will change. Thanks Nana!! We love you!
The boys also got some Woody and Buzz shirts from Grandmama and Papa and are always asking to wear them. Thank you, we love you!!


We have had some really nice weather lately, so the boys decided they wanted to have a picnic in the backyard. They were so cute, they had to have a blanket and a basket to hold all the food in. I took pictures while they weren't looking hence no pics of Cams face. I love catching them acting normal instead of posing for the camera.

My Boys!!

Here are some pictures of the boys. They sure love each other so much. Owen just loves watching his brothers and already wants to do everything they do. I can tell they are all going to be best buds. Now that Owen can sit by himself their new thing is taking a bath together all 3 in my tub, they have so much fun. (no pictures turned out though, maybe next time)

(Warning; long post with lots of Pictures)
This weekend we went to San Antonio and took the kids on a surprise trip to Sea World. They had no idea we were going until we got to Sea World. Reid and I had so much fun keeping this secret. We left on Friday morning to go down there, on the way down we stopped in a little town called New Brunsfel and let the kids get out and run around at a park for a little while and then finished our drive. When we got to San Antonio we went to the hotel to check in. The boys thought it was really cool that we were going to be staying at a hotel and that they were going to get to share a big bed. While we were walking in to go to our room, Luke said,"Is this our new home?" Reid and I just had to laugh. After we went to the room and let the kids check it out, we went to the Riverwalk. The Riverwalk was way cool. It is a river that runs below the city, with cobblestone walk ways and little bridges. It is lined with stores and restaurants, it was a very neat place, I wish I would have taken pictures. We decided to take the kids to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner. At first they were a little nervous but they ended up really loving it. After dinner we walked around a little more and went to bed.

Saturday we went to Sea World. As we pulled in we saw the huge sign. I said, "Cameron what does that say?" He hesitated for a minute and said I don't know, then after a second he said, "It says Sea World!!" His mouth was wide open and he said. "That's where we're going today!!" I said, "Yes, that's the big surprise. Are you excited?" He said, "Yes, we are so excited!!" Luke and him were so excited running and jumping while we walked to the entrance. The first thing we did was go to the kiddy rollercoaster. Cameron, Luke and I went on it. Cameron rode by himself and Luke and I rode together. Luke was nervous at first but really enjoyed it. Cameron really liked it and was so brave by himself. We headed to the Sea Lion show, it was really funny. Cameron and Luke were just so excited the whole time.We did everything you can do with little kids, and Reid and I even took turns riding one of the big rollercoasters. Our day was full of shows and activities. We got to feed and pet the dolphins, saw Shamu, watched another show with Beluga whales and dolphins, pet an alligator, saw sharks and many other things. After every show both of the boys kept on asking are we going home now, Reid and I would say no, we are here all day. They would say oh good we don't want to go home yet. Owen did an awesome job, he was happy the whole time and loved watching people and seeing the animals. Our only injury of the day was Luke, he cut his lip open because he was climbing on a cement sea lion and slipped. Blood everywhere, but not too bad. As we were heading to the car Luke fell asleep. The kids slept the whole way home, Luke even slept through dinner at Red Robin. We had such a great time ogether. This was our first official family trip, besides going to see family and we had a blast. Looking forward to many more family trips!!
