Hadley's first day of Kindergarten
Aug 27, 2012
with Mrs. Stemp

We made it through with no tears from either of us! 

After her first day we celebrated at McDonald's. 

When she came home I asked her what she learned and her reply: "You can only take 1 pump of soap in the bathroom."  She said she couldn't remember anything else!

We love her teacher! 

Brandon had a harder time with it on the actual first day than I did, serves him right for making fun of me every time I got sad thinking about it weeks before!

She's been so excited all summer long.

I started to kinda get freaked out the closer it got, it's just to official!  But it's been great getting back into a routine and having something for her to do.  She's been kinda acting out a lot more and I think she was just getting bored so school has been nice!!

Grayson gets so sad every morning when she leaves and asks "wheres yadley" every ten minutes!  He loves when we go get her.

San Diego

{ August 3-5 }

Last month, spur of the moment we decided to surprise the kids and go to San Diego for the weekend.  It was so fun, I love surprises and so does Hadley so it was great!  We've been wanting to go for quite some time and with Hadley starting school and having a new baby we new our time was winding down.  We seriously decided Thurs, booked it and left Fri morning and came home Sunday.

We ended up staying in Carlsbad and after checking into the motel we headed for the beach!  It was a colder than we'd like but still fun.  Hadley was the brave one who kept getting in even though she was freezing.  Grayson who is a daredevil was freaked out by the ocean, so he just chilled with me in a towel and ate all our snacks.

This kid was hilarious at bedtime.  He would not go to sleep.  His little head would pop up and he'd say, " I want cookie."  Or you'd see him pop up and smile at ya and when we'd tell him to lay back down he'd fall down.  He would try and climb out and just fall back in and laugh.  Next time we are leaving him home!  I don't know how anyone shares a room or bed with their kids, I could barley handle 2 nights with him!  


We got up and left for Sea World!  The kids loved it and were so good during the shows we saw.  Sea World has changed a lot since I've been there last.  It was weird not seeing any trainers swimming with Shamu and a lot of the shows are more music and cir de soleil style. 

Hadley's favorite: 
the penguins, the flamingos and the spinning ride she rode with her dad.

Grayson's favorite:
the fish!
