Not Much Goin' On

It has been a really nice and relaxing week. We haven't been in a hurry to do much of anything and we've loved spending some time with Dad. I took these pictures of the boys watching Bob the Builder which they got from the library. They love Bob. "Can we fix it...Yes we can."

Alan has been finishing up some school work and getting ready to go on his big boat trip and I have just been getting things going for the Enrichment Activity I am in charge of. The boys, well this has been a fun week for them. They have played, played, played.

We are excited to go to Utah for the next month and see family.

Sea World San Antonio

We have been talking to the boys about going to Sea World for a couple of months now and we finally got the opportunity to go. We told them about the whales, penguins, and sharks they would get to see and they talked about it every day last week. So they were really excited to be there. Here are my boys Samuel, Jacob and Alan in front of the penguins. For some reason the boys were having a hard time focusing on taking pictures so I didn't get many with them smiling and looking at the camera at the same time.

We were a little disappointed that the water park part of Sea World was closed because the temperature was in the 90's and we were very hot. But there was a spray park open that we were able to play in, the boys loved it. Jacob got knocked over by some bigger kid and here he is with Dad a little upset about it. Sam is below running in the water, he had a blast.
Here we are waiting to see the Shamu show. This is the one thing Alan and I enjoyed the most. It is amazing to see those animals so close.
The boys weren't sure about riding the kid roller coaster at first. But Sam went on it twice and Jacob three times. They have been talking about that roller coaster since. Dad and Jacob
Samuel and Mom.
Here are the boys when we first got to Sea World and we were waiting to see the Sea Lions. They just kept asking where the Sea Lions were and then when they came out they liked them for about 10 minutes and then they were done. Funny boys.

New Car

So we finally did it. We are a two car family now. Here are some pictures of the boys with the car. It is a light green but I just realized looking at the pictures that it looks silver in them.
The boys really love the trunk.

Our Budding Artists

This last week was kind of a crazy week. Alan has been working on a big project for school pretty much 24/7. And the boys were getting a little antsy not being able to go anywhere (since Alan had the car) and they were also missing their daddy. So we did this project one day. Some old crafting paint I had and some Q-tips, tissue paper, stickers and googly eyes and the boys made these...
Wonderful collages.

Yesterday Alan finally finished up his project so the boys and I hung outside on the patio playing with our hose and eating popsicles so that daddy could sleep.

Jacob aslo got a hold of the camera and this was the result!
