Making Lemonade Out of Lemons

Well Dillon was BEGGING me to make lemonade! Okay, I can get the can out and add some water right?! No! He wanted to make real lemonade, and being the good mother that I am :-) we headed to the store.
He was so excited to start our lemonade I could not get him to sit still. I called some of my friends to find out how to make it and my friend Cassie looked it up for me while we were at the store. Thank you Cassie! Anyway, Dillon loved it! He thought it was the greatest thing to squeeze the juice out of the lemon and add the ingredients. Being the future chef that he is, he wants to add mint or strawberries next time he told me. I love that boy!
Kylie is continuing to grow and be such a joy! She is such a little adventurer and she always wants to be around her big brother. If he goes outside to play, so will she. She also does not understand the word "no" like most kids.
Anyway, Jeff and I are going to be having a BBQ at our house coming up in May. I am very excited because I have always wanted to have a party, just to have a party. We have many things planned like an inflatable slide, bouncer, soccer, Rock Band, and whatever else I can think up! Oh, also a little play pool for the little ones. I initially told Jeff I would invite just a couple of our friends and their spouses, but if you know me, you know I cannot stop there! Sooooooo I have about 50 people that have RSVP'd to come to the house and celebrate whatever we want!
I will post pictures when it is time :-)
Well I had better get going because I am on my prep hour at school and the students will be showing up soon. Have a wonderful day and thank you for reading our blog!!!

Disneyworld Blues

What an amazing experience! I cannot even begin to tell you what a wonderful time we had at Disneyworld. Thankfully, my mom was there to help us through it all! I thought Jeff's arm was going to fall off a few times since he had to carry Dillon everywhere.

The kids loved all of the rides. Dillon's favorite was Thunder Mountain Railroad and he wanted to go again and again and again. Luckily, since it was my birthday we were able to get Fast Passes for the group and he was able to go on it three times in a row without a wait! He went on everything that he was tall enough for and had a wonderful time. You should have seen his face on Splash Mountain, it was priceless after he got done with the BIG drop! He had a huge smile on his face because he wanted to go again. Who knew our son was such a daredevil?

Anyway, the kids loved the parades. Kylie's face lit up when she saw all of the characters parading down the street. I thought it was funny since she does not watch any television and she was getting excited about things she has never seen before. Her favorite ride was It's a Small World. It looked like she was going to jump out of my mom's arms. That is where she was most of the trip, with her Grandma getting lots of loves :-) Thank you again Mom, I had a wonderful time with you!

Well, I will post pictures as soon as I can get motivated to upload them to the computer. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Disneyworld Here We Come!

Well it is official! Tomorrow we will enter our day of insanity, chaos, and pure exhilaration of a road trip!! We are going off to Disneyworld tomorrow with Jeff, my mom, and the kids. What were we thinking when we booked this trip? Oh yeah, that we are going to have the best time EVER! Dillon is beyond excited and we have him on the computer picking which rides he wants to go on. I am nervous because it will take us awhile to get there and neither of the kids have been in a hotel, but I know we will get through it!
I have my camera and laptop in tow with me so I am hoping to be able to load some pictures online. I will keep you posted! I hope you all have a great week. Also, I can't believe I am turning 30 in three more days. I am a little depressed, but luckily I will be at Disneyworld to get rid of my thirysomething blues :-)
