My First Trip to Six Flags!

A couple of weekends ago now we took Lane to Six Flags for the first time! We went out for a couple of hours, before it got too hot, and Lane I think enjoyed it! We started off by meeting some characters. Lane was a little interested in them at first but then got a bit scared! After that we headed to kiddie land for some rides. We rode the train, trucks, ferris wheel, and his favorite the swings! I was a little hesitant about putting him on the swings, however there was this little girl about Lane's age on them so I figured ok why not at least try! I was afraid he may try to climb out of them! Oh no! Lane got the biggest smile of his face and just sat there so good and smiled the whole time! When it was over, Paul tried to get him out and he clung to the swing, so luckily there wasn't a line so he got to ride again! After kiddie land, we walked around the park to let the big kids ride some rides! We also rode the big train around the park, which Lane enjoyed.

Here are some pics!

Overall I think his first time out was a success and I'm sure will be making many more trips out this summer and then in the fall

Sneaky Boy

Today I went to the back bedroom for about two or three minutes to put some stuff up and when I came back, this is how and where I found Lane!!! Even though he tries on numerous occasions to get these flowers, and after many "No'No's", this was his first time actually getting up there! I had to laugh first, then grab my camera, then pull him out!! Silly Boy!!

I'm Back!

WOW, I can't believe that it has been ten days since I have posted last!! Trust me, I've had good reason for my absence! The first week after I was officially out of school, I had curriculum writing all my first real day of summer wasn't until the 12th. Anyway, the main reason for my lack of posting is because every night after Lane goes down I've been working on my blog book....and let me say it has been work! Not hard work but it definitely takes time! But I am done and I think it's awesome, and I'm so glad that I have a way to keep this blog for Lane , and future kids, to read one day!!

Moving summer days so far have been pretty good.....we start with a walk in the morning, then play all day inside and out! And I have been known to wander to Target once in a while!!! Our mommy and me swim lessons start Monday! I am pretty excited about that! We have been swimming at my aunts a couple of times and Lane really likes the water, so no worries there!

I have to share this funny story...tonight Paul, Lane and I went out to eat...and we had our first real bad dining experience!! Oh the days of looking at couples with screaming kids and saying "That's never going to be us"!!! HAHA, yeah right! Lane totally embarrassed us! He did not want to sit in his high chair, so I took him out (mistake number one) and sat him in my lap. Then he wanted to grab at and play with everything in his sight (mistake number two: a fork). So when I took things away, he cried, and cried, and cried!!! Oh Lane! So needless to say, Paul made a quick exit with Lane and I boxed up our very uneaten meals and left quickly!! The things we learn from our kids!!

Tomorrow, Lane will take his first trip to Six Flags!! I am so excited. He loves to ride rides (Chuck E. Cheese, mall) and I know he is going to have a blast! Look for pics to come soon but not tomorrow night.....because I will be at the Jonas Brothers concert!! Don't laugh people!! I am going with pretty much all my cousins!! It is a family affair and I am sure it will be fun!!

I'll leave with some pictures from my first full week of summer! Sporting daddy's sunglasses...Can my boy be any cuter??!!
Daddy and Lane having fun in the pool

He likes to stick out his tongue alot now!!

Break time and Snack time!

Wednesday night a bunch a girls and guys from work got together to hang out and celebrate the summer birthdays in the group! Someone thought it would be funny to have these balloons hats made for us!

And recently Lane is crazy over baseball bats! For a couple of weeks now he has this Texas Ranger bat that he carries everywhere!! It is so cute! It's kinda weird because baseball is the one thing on TV (besides Noggin shows) that he will stop and watch! Maybe a future baseball player on our hands! And yesterday he spotted another bat on his dresser so we had to get that one down as well!
Ok enough for one post....Happy Friday!

Hello Animals!

A couple of weekends ago, we took Lane to Keller Fest and they had a little petting zoo. Paul took him in and he loved it. He was not scared at all. He would walk right up to the animal and reach out to touch it. I was a little surprised at how there was just no fear!

I loved the little brown goat.

This one is too sweet...I can imagine he is saying, with his little head tilted... "Hi goat, what's up?"!!

On another is out!!!!!!! This week I am doing curriculum writing....yikes!! I am almost done though and then I will feel a little more like I'm on actual break!
