six flags

We all loved six flags. It was perfect weather in the high 60's. The lines were short and the boys for the most part behaved.
I convinced J to go on the roller-coaster with me. He was not very happy about it and once we started he was freaking out. John and I were hoping to ride a few big rides with J but after that it was kids rides only.

Waiting to ride Tomas

There were so many kids rides and they really were fun.

The shows were so worth going to, we saw the killer whale, the dophins, the sea lions, and the tiger show.

The highlight of the day was the shark exhibit. We went around the through the tank 5 times.

Mario Party

These are not as cute as Paige's thanks to here instruction and encouragement I made them to the best of my ability. THANKS PAIGE!
I am so glad I captured this picture right after putting these mustaches on the boys. Jay kept his on almost the whole party but the twins took theirs of after 5 minutes.
We started out the party making ice cream. The boys discovered that the easiest way to shake the bag was to jump on the tramp. Eli ended up throwing his back on the grounds to shake it up. Bad idea....he ended up with salty ice cream.

Eli ended up using his mustache as tape to hold his mouth shut.
Adam wore his mustache 2nd longest.
Present Time! Jay got some great gifts. THANKS EVERYONE!
Mario Bingo was a big hit. I learned a lot but still can't remember all the caractors names.

Big Birthday

I went to Walmart for the 3rd time in 7 days and because I didn't want to have to go back for a 4th time I picked up the site to store package that came in. I left it in the van for one whole day then I couldn't take it any more. So we gave J his first birthday gift a few days early. He was not super excited like I was. I think he will really like to ride his bike once he gets the hang of it. We have been out a few times this week but he is just not catching on. He is so nervous.
He got his card from Grandma S so we went to Walmart again. See I did end up there 4 times in 8 days. J picked out a scooter and a few other things with his money. I thought well maybe the scooter will help with the balance. We will just have to wait and see I guess.
J was very excited to make his own birthday cupcakes. He measured and put in all the ingredients.
Then the best part....he licked the bowl.
When dad got home from work the first thing he wanted was to open presents. He got a scout handbook.
And super Mario Galaxy 2. Boy this kids is spoiled.
And what should appear in the mail but another Grandma card. And guess what came in the card..... a gift card for WALMART.
Then it was dinner time. Guess what my boy wanted for birthday dinner. Dad's mashed potatoes and mom's brown gravy. So I opened the lid to the crockpot that had be cooking a wonderful roast, and we ate.
Dinner time is happy time.Happy Birthday To My Boy!
