Mallory's 5th Birthday

This past weekend we went to Maryland to celebrate Mallory's 5th birthday. She doesn't technically turn 5 until next weekend but she had an AWESOME birthday party at The Little Gym on Saturday. Hayden and I both loved using all of the fun equipment and playing the games that they had planned. One of my favorites was definitely the balance beam and Hayden was content running around and trying everything. He sure did try to keep up with the big kids!
Celebrating Mallory
A hug for the birthday girl.
Hayden trying out the balance beam (with help from Pappy)
Fearless!
Look at him go!
Hayden using his muscles. Hee Hee!
Check out that balance!

Waiting for the next game.
Waiting for the bouncy thing to blow up.
Check that out and check out Hayden in the middle of it all!
Fighting the "dragon".
Having fun singing.
Pizza time.
Mmm! Cupcake!
Hayden enjoyed his too!
Phew! Hayden sure was exhausted after that party!
Here are lots of videos from the birthday party....
 


We tried to get a picture with Nana and all of her great grandkids after the party. This was the best shot. Hahaha!
We did get one with the girls.
Hayden snuck in for a picture with Nana too.
We also tried to take some cousin pictures. It is a hard task to get all of the kids looking and smiling. Here are some of the best pictures that Mama got.
We enjoyed going to the playgrounds in Mallory's neighborhood.
Hayden tried out Logan's hat again.
Cousin love!
The boys enjoyed swinging.
On our ride home this morning we had donuts with chocolate icing. Probably not the best idea to give two kids in a car but sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get through a 6 hour car ride. Haha!
Hayden thoroughly enjoyed his!
Cheese!
Thanks for a fun weekend Uncle Dave, Aunt Mica, Mallory and Logan. We'll see you in October!

First Lost Tooth!!!

This deserves it's very own blog...yesterday I lost my very first tooth!!! I woke up yesterday morning and told Mama that my tooth felt funny. She told me to go brush my teeth. When I got back into the room I told her my tooth was wiggly. She felt it and sure enough it was! Little did she know I was determined to get it out and kept wiggling it until...pop...it landed on my tongue and then I gave it to Mama.
Cheese!
My new toothless smile.
Mama put my tooth in a baggie.
Here's my tooth.
I was so happy about my tooth.
Ironically my cousin Mallory also lost her first tooth yesterday and it was the same one that I lost!!
Of course, I was very excited for the Tooth Fairy to come and she did!
I got a note and she let me keep my first lost tooth. I also got 5 $1 coins.

First Movie and Fun with Friends

On Friday Mama took me to see my first movie. We saw "Minions" and I really enjoyed it. Mama got lemonade, popcorn, and Minions candy. Of course she had to document this occasion with a few pictures.
Cheese!
A picture in front of the movie poster.
A great photo opportunity at the movie theater.
We went back to story time and Barnes and Noble and they read one of my favorite books, The Pout Pout Fish.
Hayden and me.
Making my Pout Pout Fish craft.
Mm! Mm! We got another Starbucks treat.
Hayden had to inspect his first.
Taste testing.
Yup! Good to go.
Hayden is  as fearless and crazy as ever....
Testing out my puddle jumper.
Swimming.
Lately Hayden has been enjoying wearing my bike
helmet. See the videos below to see how crazy he is.
Hahaha!
Here are some funny videos.


We are still enjoying going to story time at the library on Tuesdays.
I really enjoy participating in all of the activities now.
Here is a video of me going on my "bear hunt".


Yesterday we went swimming at the Mehall's. It's always so much fun hanging out and playing with Aubrey and now Maddox too!
Enjoying some pool time.
Hayden tested out swim floats with his vest.
"Swimming" on his own again.
Testing out the doggy float.
Silly Hayden and Maddox
Aubrey and I rode our bikes.
Mm! Mm!
I am loving going on bike rides.
This morning I rode 2 miles in our neighborhood!!
Mama took me to the dollar store to buy goggles.
I'm getting brave and like to swim with my head in the water.
Stay tuned for videos.
 
We went to the White Water Center to take a walk today.
Hayden and I enjoyed the rock wall afterwards.
Phew! We sure are keeping busy!
