Dinosaurs and Zoo… (part 1)

Well we decided to head up to Glen Rose for Lindsay’s family reunion. We were sad that Gundy (Lindsay’s Grandma) didn’t come, but we did have a great time with the rest of the family. Kai played with Holden (2nd cousin) quite a bit. It is always nice to have another child around to run around with Kai.

This trip was also Kai’s (and Andrew’s) first trip in a hotel.DSCN3862 DSCN3863

Friday night we went to Dinosaur Valley State Park to see the actual dinosaur tracks. It was awesome. I’m sure we are walking where dinosaurs walked all the time, but seeing their tracks is a very cool experience. All the prints we saw were prints of a theropod, which is basically a three toe carnivore.

I also tried to teach Kai and Holden how to skip rocks, but it didn’t go as

smooth as you would think…


The next day we got up and had breakfast then decided to check out an awesome city park that had huge rocks that were once on the bottom of a riverbed.

Big Brother, Little Brother

Here are my boys sporting Ryan's and his big brother's old t-shirts. Thanks Grandma GiGi for saving them for us!

Kai is such a great big brother. He is always checking on Andrew in his crib, running upstairs for me when I need a pacifier or a blanket, he lets Andrew wallow all over him, and he is always trying to make Andrew laugh... which is pretty easy to do, because Andrew is gaga over Kai. His face immediately lights up whenever his big brother plays with him.

We are truely blessed to have such sweet, easy going, happy children.

The Greatest show on Earth

" Can I have monkey bars added to my bedroom ceiling?" Kai Roberts, 4 years old, after his first trip to the circus.

Last night we went to the circus, and it was awesome. We took Emma, Coleman, and Kai and we all had a blast. We got there early so that we could attend the preshow, which consisted of seeing the animals and clowns up close. We got to try on costumes, watch juggling/ clown acts, and see an elephant paint a picture. We were amazed at how big the tigers were and we all thought it was funny that the main elephant's name was Kelly.

I talked to my mom, who kept the kids last night, and she told me that Emma and Coleman spent the morning trying to spin paper plates on yardsticks, and Kai was reenacting the animal scenes, including the goat who rode the horses, with all of his little plastic animals.

I think this will become a yearly trip!!

Summer update

Blogging has obviously not been my top priority over the summer. We have been too busy having fun.

Kai and I went to a baseball game with our friends.

We celebrated the forth of July with my parents and Emma and Coleman.

And we went to the Science Museum.

We got to check a few more items off our list... only about 70 more to go.
