California or Bust

To my kids the KOA is like a trip to Disneyland!! in fact I think if they had the choice they would choose the KOA over Disneyland! They look forward to it all year long and love being able to spend all day long outdoors playing with their cousin's at the park or at the pool!!
This year we headed to Legoland on our free day! It was crowded and some of the lines were a little long, but we managed to have a good time! and all the things made out of Lego's are always cool to see!
We went to a few restaurants that we've seen on "Diners, Drive Ins, & Dives" they were both really good and we'd eat there again! Darin was going to get a burger made out of gator and when he saw the price of $16 he chickened out and had a yummy Hawaiian burger instead!!
Of course you can't go to Cali and not make a trip to the beach or to see the bird guy at the pier! This year both Degan & Dustin surprised me at the beach, they LOVED it! when in the past they wouldn't go near the water because it was to cold!!
On the way home we had the "Best Potty Break Ever" according to Tayia! we stopped by Buffalo Bills to enjoy the free rides for Nevada residents!!

The Toothless Wonder

It's no secret that Degan is my active kid, in fact that's one of the things I love most about him! Well he's so active that he bumped his front teeth one to many times and created an abscess, so the dentist recommended pulling his front two teeth. He was so excited (strange I know) for the tooth fairy to come visit him and leave him money to spend in California!! He was a trooper and did good for Dr. Hughes!! and believe it or not I think he looks even cuter with his front teeth missing!!

What??? Are You Sure???

9 week ultrasound
Was Darin's response when I came out of the bathroom with a positive pregnancy test! and than asked how reliable a dollar store pregnancy test really is?? Needless to say we were both in total shock and it took us a few days (actually weeks)  to wrap our heads around the fact that we were going to be parents again! We kept the news to ourselves until after the ultrasound and told the boys with some fortune cookies that said: "A new little person will be joining the family" "A brother or sister what will it be?" & "You will no longer be the baby of the family" Degan was immediately excited and said he wants a sister! We'll see, a girl would be fun but we'll take what we get and we're good at making boys!!

The Cougars!

Degan's T-ball season is finally over! He had so much fun learning how to play & sliding into home! even though he did get distracted quit often and ended up playing in the dirt, but what can I say it's just not a fast enough paced sport for him! Dad & I enjoyed watching you play and had a few good laughs! for example: At one of the games you couldn't get your throw & step to coordinate and it would take you FOREVER to throw the ball, It was so funny!! Dad loved it when you would slide into home! and I loved watching you run the bases with your big old batting helmet on, and how you thought your team won every game! Good Job Buddy!
