We’ve found something fun that the family can do together….bicycling!!!

Yes, my son learned how to ride a bicycle without training wheels last week. So my parents gave myself and hubby a couple of bicycles they had around the house. We bought them home on Saturday. I haven’t rode a bicycle since I was a teenager. I’m now 42 years old and loving it!!! We had so much fun on our bike ride this afternoon.

Back to school….2012!

The kids have had a great two weeks at school. They both adjusted well and we’re all getting used to our routine. This year Emily was promoted to the first grade and was asked to be in the school’s TAG program (aka the gifted program)! She will take 30 minutes away from her class and study 2nd grade science and math. We are very excited. Will is doing great in class as well. He is adjusting to have a male teacher in 3rd grade.

A surprise trip for the kiddos!

August 2 – 5, 2012

We took the kids to see The Wiggles in Jacksonville, FL. Three of The Wiggles are retiring this year and we all wanted to see them one last time. Mainly it was for mommy and daddy. Emily loved the concert and got to high 5 Murray Wiggle (red one). Will could care less about it. I guess my baby is growing up. LOL

After the concert we told them that we were going to Wild Adventures which is in Valdosta Georgia and we have season passes for. The concert was over by 8 pm that evening and we ended up driving down to Daytona, FL. The kids had no clue where we were headed because it was dark and raining that evening. We stayed at a hotel in Daytona for the night and got up really early and headed for Orlando, FL. We were surprising the kids and taking them to Legoland Florida!!! My son has always wanted to go there and it was pretty close to his birthday so this made a nice surprise birthday present for him. They had no clue!!!! We passed signs for Disney World and the kids did not say anything! Finally my son noticed a lego sign. My hubby finally told them where we were headed when we passed a sign that was 4 miles to Legoland. LOL They started screaming and getting really excited over it.
Friday, we spent the day at Legoland and it was so hot! Never go in August!!! The kids had a blast tho! We also went shopping at Ikea and ate at the Cheesecake Factory too.

Hope you all enjoy the pictures…

A Hubby Surprise!

Hubby decided to surprise us on his own birthday! He took us to the beach. We stayed two nights at a really nice resort. It was nice to get away and visit with family while we were in Panama City Beach, Florida.

When we’re not camping….

We’re having a great summer 2012! We have had a busy summer. Right after school was out the kids had 2 weeks of swimming lessons at the local swim club where we are members. They also had VBS at a local church close to our house. Then we went to the beach with my parents, brother and his family for a few days. We picked the perfect week due to the tropical storm Debby that showed up the day after we left. The kids then spent a week at my parent’s house attending their VBS. Now we’re gearing up for our last VBS at church this coming week. We’ve also been hitting the swim club mostly in the evening when daddy gets home so he can spend time with the kids.

Here’s a few pictures of our adventures during the summer….
