Crazy Boys!

"That's right Mr. Carson!  I don't know who you think you are coming over here running all over the place like you own it! You have to be sweet to me because I'm a girl and this is my house!" I'm sure that's what Miss Olivia was thinking when Carson invaded her house on a visit after dinner at Red Elephant.  She was so sweet and loving to him and the only thing he could do is scoot around her and figure out how to get to the toy the fastest or how to take it away from her.  Either way, he's a guy what should we expect. : ) 

  Maybe Jason and Virginia will allow Carson back in their house next time since he was so rude this past time.  Hopefully, he will apologize and be much sweeter to Miss Olivia.  Joe and I were both AMAZED by her and how sweet she was.  She was such a little joy to be around and just so calm.  I think it's a girl thing.  I will babysit anytime Virginia!

It's always nice to get together and enjoy dinner with friends!  We are blessed to have so many sweet friends in the neighborhood and we enjoy our time together.

Lions,Tigers, and Bears...Oh My!!!

A few weeks ago Nana, Leland, Carson, and I went to the zoo!  It was the first weekend the weather was warm enough to get outside and truly enjoy it.  We did just that!  We loaded up and headed to Montgomery for Carson's first zoo experience!  The first place we had to go when we got there was the gift shop to buy Carson some type of hat because unfortunately he has his mother's skin. : ) Then it was off to see the animals!  He loved taking it all in.  He was very observant and noticed the animals at each display.  Even the reptiles, yuck.  We were able to see a baby monkey up close and hear the lioness roar.  Next time I will make sure to carry cash so that he can feed the giraffe.  That is the main zoo memory I have as a child and to think I didn't have $2 cash on me.  I guess it was good I didn't have it so that Joe can experience it when we go next time.  Another part of the trip Carson enjoyed was the train ride.  He enjoyed just riding more than anything. There were a few little girls in the back that would scream at the top of their lungs when we went thru the dark tunnels and I was nervous about it scaring Carson.  However, he never seemed to really care.  Seems like he's already becoming a little tough guy with no worries. It's neat to be on the other side as a parent because you want your child to experience as much as possible but you also want to protect them.  The funny thing is I'm still learning so much about Carson and his personality there are many times I assume he will act one way and he does the exact opposite. Getting back to the zoo, it was an enjoyable trip and I can't wait to revisit and bring Joe along! : )


A New Goal...

Well as you can tell by the name of the link I'm not that creative when it comes to this kind of stuff.  I do have a Marketing degree but I'm more of the seller and perfector vs the creator.  So this will be a new experience for me and I hope to learn something new and become more creative so to speak.  We shall see how that goes!  I've realized as time goes on we become so consumed in our everyday life that it becomes harder to keep in touch.  Sure we always have facebook but typically you get the picture and not the story or the summary of what's going on and you still are so far behind.  I am making a goal to blog a few times a month on the progress of our family, family events, and experiences that touch our lives.  I hope you enjoy!
