Fish Day

A post about us!

Earlier this month we went to the Georgia Aquarium for part of our spring break. I'd never been to this one and we thought Wyatt would enjoy it. I was also hoping he might come away with "fish" added to his list of words he can say...alas, it was all for nought. We did have a good time though and Wyatt really seemed to like all the fish and other animals.
We had originally planned to get there right when they opened because that's supposed to be the best time to go. We were staying with Kev's brother in Athens so we wouldn't have to drive so far. We got up in time, but Maggie needed to eat. Then, our GPS didn't have the aquarium on it so we ended up not being able to take the quickest route. We also had to make a quick stop at wal-mart so I could get Wyatt a leash, because we left ours at home. We did finally make it, but we lost a lot of time. When we got there, another family had extra tickets to the 3D show for right then, so we went to that. Unfortunately, the first jump into 3D land was accompanied by a very loud noise and it scared Wyatt so we left. Then it was off to see the fishes!
Here are some pictures from the day.

Kev didn't want to have to chase Wyatt around all day, so he opted to wear Maggie. I think he enjoyed it as much as she did! :)

If you haven't been lately, then you haven't seen the dolphins. This is what you get to see unless you pay for the show. (**disclaimer--there was a dolphin swimming in this tank, but it swam out of the picture)

Wyatt found it!

There were several little crawl spaces for the little ones. I don't think Wyatt liked them as much as we did, but by this point he was pretty tired.

This was so cool! The penguins were right there and all around us!

This penguin and its buddy must've thought Wyatt was one of them because they came right to him and stayed there, swimming up and down, until we left them. They even tried to follow us. It was so neat and definitely my favorite part of the day!

Love it!

The whales were cool and it was the only place in the aquarium you could actually hear the music. Wyatt was just as interested in dancing to the music as he was watching the whales!

I love my family!

Okay, time to go so we can sleep now!

Just a Bunch of Characters

Last Friday I did a photo shoot for my friends. You probably know them as those people with all those kids! We just laugh and say that if the kids are gonna be that good looking, they might as well keep having them! I've known Mark and Abbie since about the time Zoe came along. I started babysitting for them and Abbie and I became fast friends. She and Mark kind of adopted me as a little sister and Zoe was my flower girl. Anyhoo--here's a sneak peek of this beautiful family!

The ones who started it all. This is just one of the many great shots.

First up is Zoe. She's a supermodel in the making!

Here's Ace. He's so handsome!

Liam--love those blue eyes!

Josiah--so stinkin' cute!

Ceili Rain--precious little princess!

Bryant--littlest of the bunch and just as much fun as the rest!

I've still got some editing to do on these, but I just couldn't wait to share! Want to see more of the bunch? Check out their blog here! The main picture is the one I took back after Thanksgiving.

Check it Out!

So I've been a terrible friend by not doing this sooner, but here it is now so maybe Abbie will forgive me. My friend Abbie, who I talk about frequently, is doing her first giveaway with Character Creations! She was originally ending it last week, but things change and I was given a second chance to let you know to go enter it. She has tons of fabric samples and if you add that to her enormous talent, you get the cutest creations! I've been lucky enough to receive some as gifts and I love them! I apologize for the lack of picture quality, but these were just random pictures, not taken with the intent to advertise.

Here's Wyatt's. His is a dinosaur and his initial. I got matching burp cloths and a nursing cover as well. They are fabulous!

Maggie's is her initial on a circle. I also have a matching nursing cover.

So hurry on over to enter the giveaway! You have until midnight! Good Luck!

Shopping with Wyatt!

I took Wyatt with me to Food Lion last night and he had a blast!
