Vacation pt. 4 *Final*

Wednesday Mark and Wyatt went to Lego Land. It's about an hour away so left left pretty early. They wanted to be there when the park opened! They were SO excited!!! Mark sent me pictures throughout the day...it was so fun to see them together doing something so special. I love the one on one time we spend with each of our children...it's so important to us!

Before they left...

A text after they rode a ride and got SOAKING wet!!!!


They opened and closed down the park that day! Wyatt LOVES rides so it was so fun for them to do all the "big" stuff as many times as they wanted. We were in Orlando the last week before "peak" season so they could literally get off a ride and walk right back on again. SUCH A BLAST!!!


Meanwhile...the Lou and I held down the fort ;)








 One of my new favorite pictures...


One of the evenings after dinner the g-parent's got to babysit. ;) It was after bedtime so all was well! My sister and I had adjoining rooms so it was nice to be able to go back and forth. It was also convenient for date night as well! LOL! 

The last night we were there we tried to snap a few family photos. Always so fun right?!!? We used a cell phone and a timer...I think we got some pretty good ones. ;)








 After family pictures we all loaded up and went to dinner. We ate at downtown Disney. They kids had so much fun showing family around. It's amazing how much they remember from the last time we were there.


Friday morning at 4:30 am we were back in the car...this time not as excited. ;( We had a full 16 hour car ride ahead of us. It wasn't as bad as we thought...with 3 bathroom/gas stops and a stop to sit down and eat lunch we all made it home safe and sound! Not to bad with a 3 and 4 year old!?!?!? I have to say...it was SO NICE to see the arch again!!



Another AMAZING vacation in the books...we love making memories with family!

Vacation pt. 3

We spent Monday morning in the car again...we were keeping the road hot! LOL! We only had a 6 hour drive into Orlando from Atlanta. We were ALL ready to be there! It didn't take long to unpack and head to the pool.







We all took turns cooking dinner each night. It was so nice to be so relaxed! Wyatt and Sloane would literally live at a pool if I let them so this was a perfect vacation for us! As you will see in pictures Sloane pretty much carried a bag of goldfish around the entire time... haha!


My mom got us matching shirts...LOVE!!! 




Tuesday was my dad's birthday...we cooked dinner that night and it included cake/cupcakes as part of the b-day celebration! It was so fun being together that evening. 


There was a few playgrounds on the resort property. In the evenings it was nice to run off what little energy they had left...there were huge shade tents over the top. The evening breeze made for perfect temps. ;)


 There were 5 different pools to choose from so...we visited them all! We usually spent the morning at one, went in for lunch, then headed to a different pool for the afternoon.

Georgia Aquarium- Vacation pt. 2


Saturday morning we all woke up and headed to the Georgia Aquarium. We were SUPER excited for this. I think Wyatt and Mark were like little kids on Christmas morning. This aquarium is the home of a whale shark and is the largest aquarium in the Western hemisphere (it was the largest until 2012). #nerdalert ;)


Sis wanted a picture in front of this dolphin. What is it about little girls and dolphins!?!?! 




Is this not the coolest picture!?!?! It was so neat...





We watched the dolphin show but were not allowed to take pictures during it. It was pretty intense (lighting, music, etc.) but really neat to watch! Zetta kept asking "Did you see that?" LOL! 


Just pretend all those people are gone in the background...;/ 


The Georgia Aquarium is also the home of 4 whale sharks and 4 manta rays. They have a tank that is over 6 million gallons of water!!! 


We used the awesome selfie stick for this picture!!! All together on the "whale scale." 


We ended the day with some swimming...

Summer Vacation 2015 pt. 1

Last week we were on a family vacation with my family! We had a blast. It's always so hard to come back to reality. It was such a wonderful relaxing time! We left St. Louis EARLY (4am) on Saturday morning. The kids slept a few hours in the car but were SUPER excited.


We were all meeting in Atlanta Saturday night/evening. We made it there with only a few stops! The kids were GREAT! Since we got there a bit early we decided to take the kids to a history museum (Mark's pick ;) Wyatt is BIG into dinosaurs right now and they had an awesome dino section. There was a children area as well...we had so much fun! I think sometimes the unexpected finds are the best.




We were able to spend a little bit of time there before it closed and we loaded back up and headed to the hotel. We planned to swim, order pizza, and get ready for the Georgia Aquarium the next day!
