The kids "worked" hard all summer to earn enough marbles to go to Sea World and the Dude Ranch. I'm glad they did it because we had a great time! We spent Friday at sea world which was perfect since the crowds were thin and the temperature was only in the 90's. John Paul was tall enough to ride a few of the bigger rides and boy did he love it! He rode one of the bigger water rides 5 times!

How time flies! Grace is 19 months old but thinks she is at least 3 or 4. She tries to keep up with Kate and John Paul. She is quite the climber and has no fear when it comes to heights, slides, animals, etc. She might be our most athletic kid, already throwing, kicking, and sometime catching balls.
Grace has the BEST laugh. She doesn't laugh easily but when she does, it is the best gut bustin giggle! We all love to tickle her!
Her vocabulary is growing daily. Thank You, more, snack, bubba, kat, joh pau, momma, daddy are her favorite words. She will not say Please no matter what! I think that has to do with her strong will. Speaking of that, boy is she strong willed. She will throw herself down in a fit if she doesn't like the situation and will give you a "how dare you" look if you tell her no. She has recently started saying "bye bye" to you after you tell her no in hopes that you will go away so she can continue with the no-no. I have no doubt that she will keep life interesting!
We love our little Gracie-poo!

My sweet Kate-ster is 3! Sweet, sensitive, and silly are the words I would use to describe her. She is a super caring, loving daughter and sister who loves to share hugs and kisses. Even though they fight, she and John Paul have too much fun sharing a room. They are constantly getting in trouble for playing at nap time! Kate LOVES pink, even sings a song about her love for the color. Twirly skirts or dresses rank high on her list as well. She loves her baby, pink piggie, and multiple baby blankets.
On the last day of school yesterday, Kate's teacher told me that she was by far her best student for the summer, never giving her trouble, always wanting to help and doing her best on projects. Makes this Momma proud of my little girl.
We love you Kate the Great!

John Paul and Kate really enjoyed splash day at school. Kate's favorite thing was wearing her "pink twirly swimsuit". (which was a bribe for potty training). John Paul's favorite thing was dumping water on his friends and shooting the water guns. If I haven't mentioned it before, he is ALL boy!
