Aunt Erin's Visit

My sister came to visit!!

James wanted to sleep with Aunt Erin's picture under his pillow while she was here.

We braved it to Islands of Adventure one day even though it was raining off and on. James was able to ride the Dr. Seuss train so his day was pretty much made.

We all had some butter beer...there were mixed reviews. I loved it but some thought it was too rich.

Having some lunch and waiting for the rain to pass.

We were also able to meet Erin's boyfriend, John and he fit right in....like he had been part of our family forever. He played and played with the kiddos!

We also braved the beach one day. The weather was beautiful but Tropical Storm Beryl was coming so the waves were sooooo rough.

Some pictures of Tropical Storm Beryl

We also made sure to take some pictures:) Look at these pretties!

We also went to Chuck E. Cheese and had lunch with the twins at school. The trip went waaaaay too fast. I know there will be many sad faced when Erin and John leave tomorrow.

Ukulele Recital

Stella has been taking guitar lessons since Christmas. She recently switched to the ukulele because it has fewer strings and is easier on her fingers. Her recital was this weekend. Stella picked out her outfit and wanted nails to match:) I did the best that I could!

Tony took the twins to a birthday party in the morning. So. Much. Fun. When we all met up at the recital, Stella got out of the car and said, "I'm nervous." Weird. Because she never is nervous. I think it was all the excitement of the morning and then switching gears to the afternoon.

Ready to go on stage.

Anyways, she had two songs. The first was "Tom Dooley". It was the easier of the two.

The next was "When the Saints Go Marching In". Ms. Jill asked the whole church to stand up, stretch and sing along:) Stella did amazing. During the song, she has to play 6 different notes/chords and she played them soooo well:)

I think the highlight of the recital was her BFF came with her family. Stella was thrilled:)

Flowers from Gabrielle.

Needless to say, this was my view at the end of the day.

Art Show

Each year, the school has a 'Family Fun Night'. There is a book fair, silent auction, science projects and an art show. Tony stayed at home with James and I ran the twins over to school. They were so proud of their art!

Mothers Day 2012

Just want to take a quick picture of me with my three monkeys;) Not an easy task!

Last year we went to a nursery which also had a butterfly garden.

We recently went to Epcot to use the last of our three Disney tickets. I wasn't sure if the kiddos would like it but we ended up having a great time.

The very first building we went in had a firetruck.....so basically, James was all set. His day could have ended then;)

We took a cheesy family picture:)

We rode the monorail. Someone was very excited about that!

There was a whole "Nemo" section: a Nemo ride.... ...and lots of fish, sharks, turtles, manatee to explore!

We walked around the countries too.
Ate a delicious meal in France and found Lightening McQueen and Mator in Japan!!

It was a super hot day (high of 92) so when we went on a long, indoor ride, James took a quick nap.

The kiddos picked out a treat and James found a Disney tram toy...his very favorite thing to do is ride the tram to the park.

It was a great day. I think the kids liked the park more than I expected;)
