She likes her bling

R is a huge fan of her sister's earrings. She wears them every chance she gets!!

She also loves her shirt...Minnie and sparkles!  Perfect combo!

And here she is with the super cool puzzle she got from her cousins!

B and I wanted to go parasailing back in August.  However, the weather did not cooperate on the day we had made reservations.  So, we tried again and this time it was a gorgeous day.  The water was nice and flat.  A few puffy clouds in the sky.  And it was time to go. It was gorgeous and so peaceful up in the air.  Really nothing like I had imagined. I think B liked it for the most part. He was definitely nervous at first, but seemed to ease into it. Being up in the sky, it was so quiet and calm and just amazing!

Quite a fun time with just me and him.  The others joined us for a day on the beach.  However, we were so far out and up, they could barely tell it was us!

Man of the house

Daddy was out of town, so when a gecko was in S and K's room, big brother (aka. the man of the house) came to the rescue!

2 years old

My baby is 2!!!!  How is that even possible.  It was just yesterday that I was planning for her birth and now, I don't have a baby anymore!!!

I'm trying to focus on how exciting it will be, as the days go on, to move towards big kid stuff all of the time.  But I'm also REALLY REALLY sad that there are no babies in our house and there will not be any babies at our house!

She had a fun birthday though.  We did the mouse park the weekend before.  So that was a lot of her celebration.  But she enjoyed her day as well.  Presents in the morning and Rai.nforest Cafe for dinner.

I made her 5 medium sized Mickey cakes (and since I'm playing catch up here in October, she's still excited about her Mickey cake!)  :)  She was really excited about the cakes, but it had to be Mickey, not Minnie!  :)

Our last trip for a long long time

Our annual passes were about to expire and it was little R's second birthday just a couple days later...so we went for one last trip to the mouse amusement park.  We've been there so many times, but we tried to make this last trip a little different and do some special stuff.  The kids knew it was our "last trip for a long long time", because we don't plan on buying tickets ANY time soon. 

So we visited the parks that we sometimes would skip if we were only there for a weekend.  Or the parks we would sometimes do on Sunday, because if we were leaving around 2:00 that day, it would be our short day.  And this trip, we had the full day...which gave us some more flexibility to see some stuff we hadn't seen, and done some things we didn't normally do!

We had done this lunch, but it's of course a hit with characters.

The boys got to be Jedi's in training!!  So cool!  S was excited to be up there, training, but once it was his turn to battle, he took off!!!!  He was done!  B was very focused and he was obviously paying attention in training, because I must say, he rocked it!!!  He knew exactly what darth was going to do and he was ready to battle his every move.  He even got to use some special force (see, I know nothing about this...so hopefully this will just spark our memories...it's the guys in the white suits..lol!)  But he was the only kid to use his force field on them after he did his battle.  He was spot on and quite impressive!  ;)

We made sure to see lots of characters and did another meal, the one at the revolving restaurant. At first it wasn't rotating...that was kind of a bummer.  But after about 20 minutes it got going.  The kids were really excited about that.  And R had a blast at this dinner seeing everyone!  She even got a signed card for her birthday from the characters at dinner.

Another fun dinner and another signed card from some of her favorites!   Such a lucky little girl. I'm sure she won't remember her second birthday, but hopefully seeing these pictures, she can look back and see what a special little 2 year old she is!
