Lagoon with Stouts II

We went to Lagoon with the Stouts for the second time this season. It was a blast! We contemplated getting a babysitter for Gavin, but the kids had been a bit sick, and we didn't want to pass it on in someone's home, so we decided to take him, and I'm glad we did! He was a trooper, and he had soooo much fun! He got to ride the ferris wheel with us, and the train, and Odysea (a huge Octopus with fish dangling down from it that were the seats, and water spraying everywhere...he didn't appreciate the water in his face, but he loved the rest, he was clapping his hands and bouncing and squealing...precious), the carousel, and he even rode the little whales all by himself. By the end of the day, he was past tuckered out, but I think it was worth it! Here's a few pictures of the kids!

3 little pigs and the Big Bad Wolf!

One of Collin's favorite books is the 3 Little Pigs. We've read it a hundred and one times and he has it memorized. So one day he decided he wanted to make puppets and do a puppet show featuring the 3 little pigs. Of course that meant mom had her work cut out for her. I made 4 sock puppets, a curtain for a stage and 3 of straw, one of sticks, and one of "bricks" (leggos). Then we did a 5-star production for Grandma and Grandpa King and the cousins! Here are some pics of the big show! Of course Collin was the Big Bad Wolf, complete with Little Pig, little pig let me in, and not by the hair of our chinny, chin chins!

4 year olds do not like to lose any game!

We finally got our backyard finished and mowed it for the first time this week. We played out there for quite a while yesterday. Collin and our dog Tex were playing tug of war, and then there was a meltdown! :) See for yourselves!
