After Hours

We also had great fun back at the house with five cousins!  I was a little worried about getting that many people in one house.  It was a nonstop party for the kids. 
We already miss what we have called our "cousins from England" who now reside in Florida.  

Getting to know the most precious and active boys (and two little girls), was the highlight of my week!  I learned little stories about each and it made me appreciate their parents even more.

Celebrating Mr. K's birthday.  Four of us share a birthday in a row 19-22.

My trucker princess.  
Carlee loves her hat with Ariel hair.  I'm thinking my Elsa hat looks pretty good too!  Maybe I need to go blonde.

Pirate Lunch
Connor changed his message after I told him he couldn't write- I farted.

Fascinating SeaWorld Show
(can I share that I received a free ticket because a random stranger had an extra and gave it to me!?!  #God@Work)

Connor said he wanted to be a performer for SeaWorld.  
Darren and I decided if this happened we would tell our friends he was a "Dolphin Specialist".

Shark Tank

I always think of Free Willy.

Kilimanjaro Safaris

(I personally think Lazy 5 Ranch is way cooler.  here and here.)

Carlee was excited by things like flowers and grass (things you can find in the backyard).


The Lion King Show (two thumbs up)

At the end of the week and three parks later, Connor was on sensory processing overload.  
I told him I was going to beat him if he didn't start having fun.  
"Mom you can't beat a kid for their fears."  -C.
true. dat.

I have to agree that even with ear buds everything is way tooooo loud at these parks, so we switched to less loud activities like the
Fossil Playground.

Happy Now

Lamb Attack!
