embrace the camera 6/28/12

I decided to link up with the Anderson family blog, and "embrace the camera".

So, I actually did have a great time last week, and I assure you that I am participating in all the family fun, and not just sitting/standing around taking pictures while everyone else has a good time. Cory took 2 pictures of me to prove it. :) Definitely not the best pictures of myself, but at least the kids will know that I was there. I'm sure when the kids get older they're going to want more pictures of me with them, and they won't care that I'm no longer a size 4. I'm going to try to make more of an effort to get to get in the pictures with the kids. I really need to learn how to use my self timer.

GG came to town

We had an awesome visit with Cory's mom.

The first night she was here we played in the backyard.

Day #2 we went swimming, but I didn't take any pictures. :(

Day #3 we went downtown did a little shopping, ate lunch at Costa Vida, and then saw the movie Brave.

Trying on sunglasses at urban outfitters

"Swimming" with the jellyfish at anthropologie

Chilling at lunch

Sitting in one of the car video games at the theatre. He would have happily sat there all day.

Movie time!

Playing in the fountain downtown

Sitting in the big kid part of our sit and stand

Day #4 Roaring Springs ! This was my favorite day. I love water parks.

such a big kid standing in line and going down the slide all by herself!

we had to bribe her to try it, but once she gave it a go she loved it and was very sad to leave.

I know Noah looks terrified, but he absolutely loved everything about the water park!

Day #5 After church, lunch, making cupcakes, and nap time we headed to wahooz.

GG made the best roast beef sandwiches and potato salad as well as some yummu cupcakes.

miniature golf at wahooz. the kids did great... for the first 5 holes. :)

 GG, Cory and Peyton headed over the bumper boats while Noah and I watched the go-karts. He would have been perfectly happy doing this all evening.

We also played games, rode the go-karts, and the kids played in the little playground thing they had inside. Lots of fun!

Day #6 Zoo day!

We got to pet a baby skunk!

I thought it was really cute!

We also got to pet a giant rabbit.

Peyton's favorite animal... she has this new weird obsession with dead things.

Noah loves the elephants that spray out water.

The giraffe slide is always a favorite.

The goats are Noah's most favorite thing at the zoo.

The butterfly encounter is so cool! The butterflies loved GG!

Thanks for coming to visit, GG!

Fierce ninjas!

ten on tuesday

1. Yesterday was Cory's and my 7th anniversary. We didn't really do anything to celebrate, but hopefully we will get a chance soon. So hooray for us! Here we are just little babies on our honeymoon

So wish we were in Cancun right now! 

I love how Cory is still wearing his balloon hat. He must have really loved it.

We tried taking a picture of ourselves, but we couldn't agree on which one to post. ha. 7 years, 2 babies, and some weight gain...

2. It doesn't happen often, but when it does...

3. We love chocolate cake. :)

4. Puppet shows!

5. Peyton made dinosaur feet

and Noah "painted".

6. Noah got his glasses back today, but he doesn't want to wear them. :( I hate not knowing how he sees.

7. The Father's Day card Peyton picked out for Cory

8. Peyton totally impresses me with her drawing ability.

9. GG (Cory's mom) is coming to visit tomorrow. whoop, whoop! We're excited! Too bad Grampy(Cory's dad) couldn't make it. :( 

10. Cory is freaking awesome!
