1st pool day Summer 2012

Every summer I get nervous about swimming pools and water play as any mother does. My Super Hero has no fear, and her Majesty is indecisive from day to day. I know they loooove bath time and can stay in there for an hour no problem, but in my eyes the pool is a whole different ball game. Anyway, when I decided it was time to go for it , both of them were all in. We dressed, rubbed on some sunscreen, grabbed our towels, and headed to Dayton!

As I expected. NO FEAR from the hero of course. I walked him down the steps, and that was it, He took off...only to be rescued once for drifting to far off into the deep end.

 Her Majesty was a little prissy and wanted to stay on the steps or cling herself on to me or Amanda. She did venture off one and jumped in. I let her head go under of course and she was pretty mad at me about that. She'll live.

Never the less, SUMMER..Here We COME!! Pool time, water play, Pirates Bay....stay tuned!

Boy's 1st Astros Game

Uncle Sean and Chance invited Daddy and Kaylon to go to an Astros game. It was both the boys is first game ever. Their Daddy's were so excited to take them.  I made an adorable sign for them to hold and gave Daddy the camera hoping to get some pictures. I was pretty proud of Daddy and photo taking abilities for the night! When they got home Ryan was up for an hour tell me all about the little details especially about explaining to him about the national anthem and laying out the rules of the game. The opposing team turned out to be the "bad guys" before the night was over. Kaylon was even awake when they got home after such a late game. He couldn't wait to show me his foam finger and tell me all about it. His Daddy had the best time spoiling his son. Silly boys and their sports! It warms me to the core to see how much fun they had. Pop wasn't able to make it to this games, but seems to think they're going to go to their first football game this year too. I'm not so sure about that... I guess we'll see!

Just know...I'm trying to tame a a super hero and keep calm a ticking time bomb of a 2 year old! That's what happened! I promise , I'll try harder! I am hoping to one day find the time to fill in those blank pages!

The Avengers

We have been WAITING for this day. There was no skipping over the movie trailer when it came on during commercial breaks. Even Kolbie was excited about the new movie. After all, we have watched all of the Avenger Heros movies more times than I can count. So we decided to make a day of it.

Kaylon got to pick which super hero he wanted to be of course. And landed on his all time favorite. Can't go wrong with Iron Man. So the family whole family got dresses to support all of our super hero friends, and off we went.

Can start a day off with out a Super Hero breakfast at Kelly's of course.

Then off to the mattene movie. Or so we thought. We got there an hour earlier and it was already sold out, so we had to purchase tickets for the 12:00 show. We were fine with that, it gave us time to get our "kodak moments" on.

Or so we thought! Our theater was starting to fill up so we hustled over to find us a good seat. Then we had time to play.

Kolbie slept through more than half, but woke up just in time to see her heart throb Hulk save the day. She was proud. Kaylon never lost touch with the movie from begining to end. When it was finally over he asked "Is it over Mommy?" "That was a GREAT Iron Man movie!"

I was so excited for him all day my heart was in knots. When I heard that, I could feel my heart release. Avenger day goes on record....One of our best days EVER!

Super Hero Day (at school)

I live with a Super hero. You think you may know what I'm talking about. But trust me. Im serious. My son has gone do far as to officially change his name to Kaylon Stark. On more than one occasion. in Toni Stark...aka Iron Man.
The radioactive spider juices flow through his veins (and his rubber boots) so fluidly that he can climb right up to the top of the refrigerator.
He can run fast as lightning when he's Kaylon...but with the Super Cape in place...he's as fast as the wind. So fast in can't even see him run!
Kolbie has turned herself into a little Diva Hero too. She has a plethora of "Super" knowledge that is shocking for a 2 year old girl!

 So when it came time for Super Hero day at school, his excitement uncontrollable. As you know, he is pretty well of in the Hero uniform department, so I started to explain to him that a nice friend would bring all his Super Hero attire to share with his friends that might not have any to play with on Super hero day. He didn't seem pleased with the idea so I dropped the subject for little while, but on the way home he brought it back up. "Mommy" he said, "I want to be Super Man or Super Hero Day, but I dont want to share my Batman or my other Super Hero's." I could tell he had been thinking about it, so I agreed we would just leave them all at home except for the one he wanted to wear.Morning came, and so did Super Man, so excited for Super Hero day at school! When he came in to our bedroom with his Super Man suit in tow, he informed us he decided to bring ALL his super hero costumes to share with his friends.
It made me very happy, but concerned with how the sharing aspect of the day might go. As soon as we got to school he helped me dress his friends. He showed them the proper way to preform their super hero duties as assigned, and never once asked for his stuff back. Proud is just not descriptive enough for how I felt about my son. He was a Super Hero, from the bottom of his 3 year old heart to the tips of his rubber boot covered toes.
