Shelby and daddy at our pool.
FYI, the biggest python waterslide in the world!! LOL.

Grandma and Shelby

Yummy, fried ice cream!

The park was decorated so cute for Halloween.

On Shelby's favorite ride: It's a small world

We had to see Goofy every chance that we could!

Look! They are the same!

Behind us is a really great rollercoaster called Everest.

At the rainforest cafe

Walt, Minnie, Tucker and Shelby

I think she can do it!

Messy, messy, messy!

We just got back from another great trip! We took the kids to Disneyworld and had the greatest time. We left on Wednesday night on the red eye to JFK and then on to Orlando. I was worried about all the flying with the kids but they traveled like champs! Also Tuckers mom, Debby, came with us and she was the biggest help. The kids loved to have her there! We got to our hotel Thursday afternoon and it was great. The hotel was so kid friendly. It had a kiddie pool, a big pool, a water slide and a playground. The next day we went to Disneyworld. We literally walked on almost every ride there. We never had to wait more then 10 minutes max in line. It was so perfect. We missed our free shuttle home so we had to get a cab. We had a hilarious experience. The next day we hit the outlets, went swimming, relaxed and out to dinner at Chevy's. The next day we went to Animal Kingdom. They had some really fun shows there. They had a Nemo musical that was so good and the kids were in love. That is Shelby and Keaton's favorite show so they were in heaven. We also went to a Lion King show while we were there. That park closed at 5 so we headed back over to Magic Kingdom to finish the night. The next day was a day filled with travel. We ended up having a 5 hour layover in NY. That wasn't that great. We finally made it home around midnight. It was such a fun trip and I cant wait to do it again! Oh yeah, did I mention that the flights were free, the hotel was free and the Disney tickets were free! I am a good barterer!

Hooper Rodeo

We had no plans on Labor day so I was glad when Debby called to see if we wanted to go to the Hooper Rodeo. The kids had a lot of fun and loved watching the animals. I haven't been to the rodeo for a long time. I realized how cruel they are but we enjoyed ourselves anyway!

Dancing Queen

All ready to go!

The balance beam

Look at those muscles!

I gotta tell ya, I have been waiting for this day since I found out I was having a girl 5 years ago. DANCE!! I love everything about it. Those cute little outfits they wear and watching them dance around the floor. Too cute!! I signed Shelby up for a dance/tumbling combo class. She was nervous for the dance portion but LOVED the tumbling so I switched her an all tumbling class. I am excited to watch her every week.

The Twins

I feel like I have twins. Literally. Shelby and Keaton are inseparable. With Shelby's developmental delays she plays better with 2-3 year olds. So that means Keaton is a perfect built in best friend. The very first thing she says in the morning is "Where's Keaton?" They want to play together, eat together, watch TV together, go to the bathroom together, push strollers together. It actually is wonderful but they also can bully together and get into trouble together. It's funny because when Keaton was born she was so mean. I honestly was worried about her. It took her a good YEAR to warm up to him but now there is no turning back. When Shelby started school last week, Keaton didnt know what to do with himself. The first day when she got home she climbed in his crib and gave him a big hug and kiss. They certainly are cute!

Lookin' Good

I thought Shelby looked so cute today before school!
