Sea World

We all had a great time at Sea World. We got to meet Shamu and our favorite part of the day was the Shamu show. The weather was beautiful and the boys were happy. They both rode a sea creature merry-go-round. Zachary rode a roller coaster for the first time (I think he was scared, but wanted to ride again.) and a spinny ride that made Mommy dizzy. We saw sea lions and seals, mantatees, alligators, sea turtles, dolphins, and Zachary fed the sharks. It was a great day!

Happy Halloween!

We missed being at home for Halloween. Our we missed our little neighborhood friends. I think it would have made a difference for Zachary to see them all dressed up. He wouldn't wear his Pooh costume happily until he saw Josh wearing his Tigger costume. We all had a special Halloween dinner. Mommay and Dadddy had "Ghosts in the Graveyard" mashed potatoes and meatloaf with spinach "swamp" and "bone" biscuits. Zachary had a "jack-o-lantern" cheese burger and Joshua had "jack-o-lantern" carrots and oatmeal. There wasn't much going on in the condo area, so we went to the mall. Zachary did not want any part of trick-or-treating. Joshua just went with the flow and looked bored to tears. Zachary ended up having a wonderful time playing in the children's play area in the mall.

Pumpkin Carving

Zachary was very interested in the pumpkins this year. He had fun using the scoop to get the insides out, but wasn't quite sure if he liked touching the slimy insides with his hands. He had fun taking the lids lids off after they were carved. Joshua just watched everything with a sweet face, as usual.
