Under the Sea

We went to a fall festival at a local church, and it was so fun. I had another costume for Holt I bought at last year's clearance, but when I found a shark on sale, I couldn't pass it up! It was $6 well spent :) Hopefully Haley won't notice all the chocolate candy is gone (there was only a few little ones :)

Florida pt 2

Dad & Holt deciding what to do in Florida.

The main reason we went to Florida was to visit some of our cousins on my dad's side of the family. They were so sweet to have a Texas flag flying for us. Thank you Hodges' for having us, it was so nice to see you all!

Florida pt 1 - Universal

Holt at Universal

Haley's first roller coaster! Anytime she met the height requirement, I would ask if she wanted to ride it. She said yes, but regretted it once we were committed. She was a trooper though, as she would keep trying other rides! I am so proud of her, and a little sad as my baby is getting so big!

Haley's favorite part of Universal was the Dr. Seuss area. It was a little more of her pace. It was so much fun. I had no idea she would be able to ride so many rides. What a big kid!

Why I don't swim in the ocean!!

GiGi, I and the kids took a tour of Jekyll island by carriage, since we haven't done it yet. It was fun, and we were the only ones, so that was nice.

So, we went to the beach with GiGi, and it just happened to be the weekend hurricane Irene, passed us by. Since we missed low tide, I assumed we wouldn't be able to find any sanddollars. I was wrong, we found lots! It was so fun. Most are small, but I'm looking forward to doing some projects with them.

We also found these as well, a large jellyfish, at least 12+ inches long and what looks like it could be a sting ray? This just supports my decision not to swim in the ocean!!!!

We're mobile!

Plantation & St Simons Trolley

The driver said hi, and realized how shy Haley was (not at all), so he asked if she knew anyone who could ring the bell for him. Of course she was happy to! The picture is of her telling the driver and the rest of the bus how old she was :)

The Hazels at an old rice plantation. It was neat to see.

3 Months!

You can tell Holt is trying to grab things now, and already putting them in his mouth. I'm sure they have a little extra flavor from Haley :) Here he is sleeping after working hard to get those toys!

It's already going by so fast!

Today we went to Gymnastics again. Haley's favorite is the rings. It's really a neat place. They set up all the equipment for little kids and for $6 they can run around and do whatever they want! It's also a great place for me to visit with other moms too :)

Fort Frederica #2 & Swim lessons

So far we have made 2 trips to Fort Frederica. It will be interesting to see how many times we go before we move back to Texas. This time Haley wore the headphones, and I think actually learned something, other than pushing the buttons :)
The other pictures are of Haley's swim lessons. I was worried that she wouldn't be big enough, but she does a great job...on everything except putting her face under water. She's getting to be such a big girl!

Chick Fil A dress like a cow

So, last year I couldn't talk Bryan into dressing like a cow, but this year I was able to talk dad into it :) We're also right by a chick fil a so it was a lot easier to do. We printed out some cow ears, and dad made hats for us. It was a little crowded, but I think worth it. We got the whole meal free! Holt even had a cow hat, and was offered a meal too. I don't think the kid working knew much about babies. Just incase you can't tell, the portrait is one Haley made of me the other day :) We have a notebook that she loves to draw in, especially pictures of the family.

Holt laughed at me today! All my efforts finally paid off :)
He even took 2 naps in his bed.

Future Photographer?

We bought Haley a digital camera, made for toddlers, this last Christmas. She has shown a lot more interest in it the last few days. So, today Bryan transferred the pics to the computer. It was fun to see what she's been taking pictures of. Today during "rest" time I could hear her in there snapping photos. So, there were 407 downloaded to the computer! Here's just a little sample :)

Haley was invited to a cowgirl birthday party, which was fun to dress up. It was also nice to be invited since we had just met the birthday girl! Thank you Aunt Debbie and MiMi for the boots! She also wanted brother to wear her cowgirl hat too! The boots also leave little horseshoe prints when she walks, very cute!
