shamu trainer in training

do you see the smile on this little boys face. Jayden has always loved animals especially whales an sea life. He is always telling us that he wants to be a Shamu trainer an practices at home with his whales. He has watched the Free Willy movies 1-4 over and over and I think he even wishes he was the boy in the movie. He has asked us several times for a pet shamu and swears that daddy could get a big enough pool for it. So whenever we go to Sea World its a must to see the Shamu show.
He says he would swim with them if he could..
I just love him!!!
giving the boys some time with the dolphins, Jayden really enjoyed feeding and petting them. Alex was scared and thought for sure they would bite him!

The weather is beautiful and we are taking advantage of it down at the condo. Its Landon's first trip to the beach and although he won't be playing in the sand it's good for all of us to get some fresh air and enjoy the beach.

I love watching these boys working together for a purpose. They are such good friends and are both really creative. They love building things together.

Alex's party

It's a Cars Party for this boy! Alex has wanted a cars party for a while he knew exactly what he wanted and was very excited when it finally came. The party was filled with family lots of good food, we had a pinata, and jumped in our monster truck bouncer and ate lots of treats.
