Happy Birthday Rylan!!

Rylan turned 7 years old this past Saturday! I can't believe how big he is...7 is not a little boy anymore.

We had a had celebration weekend! It started on Friday with a family trip to Sea World. It was one of the best trips we have had so far. Getting the season passes was such a awesome thing, and we will do it again next year. I'm pretty sure we'll take one more trip to Sea World before Christmas. Sea World was all decked out in Halloween stuff, many funny skeletons..some would talk to you as you would walk by. Nothing too scary, until we went into the "kid friendly" haunted trail. This trail was the "grown up" trail at day light and without scary people jumping out at you. Poor Rylan was freaked out...he had every right to be, we had to walk through a shack house with fake hanging dead bodies. In all honestly that ruined the rest of his evening there, he even got sick to his stomach on the way home...we'll skip the haunted trail next time. However, Savanna had a dream come true this trip, she got to meet Shamu. Now if you don't know by now, she is in LOVE with Shamu. We were waling through the kids play area and we found Shamu waiting for kids to take pictures with...she headed straight to him and just hugged him...she hugged him for the longest time! When we finally had to walk away from him, she was sad, she cried Shamuuuuu! It was so cute! Here are a few pics from Sea World... Here is a link to all of them....http://picasaweb.google.com/MommyRae06/SeaWorldForRylanSBirthday#

Here is Savanna loving on her Shamu.

Here is us on the Haunted Trail.

On Saturday, his actual Birthday, we had a Birthday Party. He invited several neighbor friends and they all were able to come, yay! We also had lots of our friends, Aunt Erica, Uncle Frankie, Uncle Travis, Aunt Martha, Cousin Colt, and Cousin Swayze. We were sad thought that Neece, Pop, Nana, Papaw, and Aunt Jen were all out of town! The party was s success, loud and fun!

A Day at the Park...

Today was beautiful outside. Rylan had an early release day from school and then we had an appointment to get our flu shots. The kids were super brave, Rylan even watched the his shot, Savanna of course was little hard to handle, but is fine now. As reward we got frosties from Wendy's and then went to play at the park. I got a couple shots that are now my current favorites.

Rylan's Shield Parade Day at School

This morning at Rylan's school was their yearly Shield Parade. He attends Naumann Elementary, and their mascot is a knight, therefore they are the Naumann Knights...this is why they have shields. At the start of every new school year they decorate a shield to represent themselves, and then they have a parade to show them off. All the parents come watch as they walk around the school with their shields.

So far first grade is going great! I love Rylan's teacher, he hasn't complained about here either...she is the lady standing behind all the kids sitting on the curb. I've already seen an improvement in Rylan's reading, and he comes home everyday telling me about these science experiments they did in class. Its been a good start to the school year!

Rylan Starts First Grade!

Today was the first day of school. Rylan is now big first grader! His new teacher is named Mrs. McDougal, and so far she is very nice. He has a few friends from his kindergarten class in his new class which was a great. Unfortunately it was kind of a rough start to the new school year... Our whole family has been battling a stomach virus for the past few days... so it was a little nerve wracking to send Rylan to school not feeling completely himself. Thankfully the day seemed to go well, he didn't have any complaints except that his tummy hurt him every now and then...but he is now outside playing with friends, so he's I know he's fine. I truly cannot believe that our baby boy Rylan is already in the first great...Unbelievable!

In other news we have had a little rain every day for almost a week now...is been great! So last night while shopping for school lunch food and snacks we came upon the kid umbrellas, every time we see these Rylan asks for one, and I always tell him no, because I know that they will get broken so quickly, plus it doesn't rain enough around here for everyone to need their own umbrella....So, this time I said YES! Rylan, I don't think believed me since he has hear no every time he ever asked, lol! Savanna picked out a Little Mermaid one, and Rylan picked Sponge Bob. Once we got home and they opened them up Rylan was a little disappointed in how small the actually were...great size for Savanna...I guess I should have gotten Rylan one a couple years ago...oh well. They even got the chance to use them this afternoon in the rain, yay!

Here is Rylan before school this morning, and also some pics of them out in the rain with the new umbrellas...

All Savanna

Today's blog is all about the Princess herslef, Savanna. Today I spent the whole day with her. Rylan spent the day with Brandon and Uncle Frankie. We helped host cousin Sara's baby shower this afternoon. Savanna had a grand time sipping punch from a big girl cup and eating m&m's all afternoon.

Before we left this morning we tryed to get a picture of us two girls...the first one makes me laugh, its the before:

Here is the after, much better....

Here are some more pictures of Miss Savanna this afternoon:

This last one is her walking around Neece and Pop's yard wearing Travis's flip flops. If your wondering hats on her belly, its a tattoo she got out of one of those sticker machines. its Daisy Duck.

Our San Antonio Trip

We went to San Antonio on Sunday and stayed till Monday. Sunday we went to Sea World and it was HOT as expected. We had a fun time. Rylan rode the Log Ride with Aaron and I and he said he thought he was going to have a heart attack. It was a fun ride but a little more thilling than I thought it would be. Savanna got to see her Shamu, and we also got to see the baby Beluga whales who were born only 2 weeks ago. They were so very cute. After riding the rides and seeing the sites we went and cooled off at the water park, Nana and Jen watched the kids so B and I could go ride their new water slide!
Sunday we went to the Alamo. They have this cool tour that you listen with hea phones and go at you own pace, but B and I had a hard time listening to it and keeping up with Savanna. All in all it was a great couple of days spent with family!
