They also had a petting zoo there, which was extremely crowded, but fun anyway! They had goats, sheep, bunnies, and lamas. Here is a funny video of us feeding these crazy animals...some of them more aggressive than others!

I love the little ultrasound pictures, but Justin and I still think the freaky alien picture is kinda scary! Don't you think so?!

Carter is 11-months-old here! Look at those cute chunky legs...after he started walking, his one roll he had disappeared! Oh, and he'd stolen my toothbrush...always a popular chewing item. He's always been such a climber, thus we had to put him in a toddler bed 2 short months after this since he climbed out of his crib all the time.
I got this post from Danielle, and it was fun...you should do it! Here's what you do:
1. Go into "My Pictures"
2. Go to your 4th folder
3. Upload your 4th picture (or if you're like me, crazy with the folders, I had to go to yet another 4th folder before I could get a 4th picture)
Tada!!! So, I tag Whitney, Amber, Melody, and Megen, but really, everybody should just do it.
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!
You are thoughtful and care very deeply for your family. A loving home is of great
importance to you and you always try to make people feel welcome. Although you have a great capacity to love, you also have a great capacity to hurt, so at times you can be sensitive. You're firm when you need to be, but people trust your judgment and appreciate the kind way you always handle things.
I couldn't resist! Now I just need to find time to go see the movie again, hopefully minus the screaming teenage girls this time!

I've been meaning to post this for quite some time, because it is hilarious....Carter is the funniest kid to potty train. It's kind of annoying sometimes because he jokes around too much on the potty when we're in a hurry to get somewhere. But after I got back from my trip, he suddenly decided his was gonna go #2 in the potty, which he was pretty resistant to before. He decided his reward should be getting a video taken of himself, and this video is the product of that. He loves watching these and thinks he's so hilarious. So, sorry for the repeat of the phrase, "I pooped!" over and over, but hey, that's what happens when you live in potty training land, right? Here's a funny little conversation from this morning when Carter flushed the toilet:
Carter: "Bye bye, poop!"
Mommy: "Bye bye, poop!"
Carter: "Huh?" (PS: sometimes if I repeat something he said, he asks me "what" like, "Why are you saying that too?"
Mommy: "Yep, your poop went bye bye down the toilet."
Carter: "To Grandma's house?"
Thought that was kinda funny he thought his poop was being flushed away to Grandma's house.
Cute Amber getting her hair done by Tony...he was awesome!
Little adjustments going on
All of us out to dinner after our day of shooting
Yep, they cut my hair...and this is what happens when I have a huge hotel room all to myself...

Carter's so small, you can't even see him! Well, he's obviously a lot bigger this time, being a whole two years old and got to go on some of the rides this year! It has become a fun family tradition for us and our group grows bigger every year it seems like! This year, we were watching our friend's little boy, Talan, and Carter loved having him around too. Keagan was super brave going on all the big rides...he even picked one that was a little scary for him, but he was a champ!

Finally I am getting Carter's pictures up from his birthday! His birthday was actually September 8 and we had fun with our immediate family over to make individual pizzas and play! It was a great time for everybody, I think! Carter especially enjoyed all of his cousins, of course! Here are a few things that Carter enjoys doing at his fun age of two:
1. Dancing his "Mexican Salsa" dance as we call it. He puts a hand bent up and the other fist at his elbow like a salsa dancer and hops around in a circle. OR dances a little chicken wing dance with one arm.
2. Counting, which usually goes as follows, "one, free, five, eight, nine, eight, nine."
3. Saying, "What are you doing Mommy/Daddy?"
4. Asking "Why" over and over about EVERYTHING (i.e. "What's that?" "A car." "Why?")
5. He's started singing a lot of songs and loves it. Usually just sings the last word of each phrase
6. "Who's knock-knocking on my door?"
7. Carries a gun or sword around non-stop, especially when bad guys are on TV
8. Loves his "Car shoes" that light up with Lightning McQueen
9. Farts his armpit by flapping his arm and making a noise with his mouth.

Danielle and I had been planning a fun date for months before they got here that we could surprise the boys with before Jason left. We had decided indoor skydiving would be something fun they've talked about doing together! It was a blast. The boys had so much fun together and looked as excited as little kids in a candy store once they were in the wind tunnel. Us wives had a fun time watching them from the observation area!
We went to Osaka's afterwards also, but my dang camera battery died before we got there...how sad! I hate it when that happens. Dang me for not charging it before hand. Shelly and Troy met up with us there and we all had a really fun time together. Jason drove their rental car for them to the hotel while Danielle rode with us. We had a little singing party in our car taking turns singing "All I wanna Do" by Sugarland...ha ha. Always fun times when Justin's in the mood for loud singing!

We also went bowling at Texas Station one night while Damian was here...the kids had a lot of fun, not only bowling, but running around the locker room chasing each other and getting chased! Keagan was chasing Justin and Justin climbed on top of the lockers. It was pretty funny! Keagan had a hard time finding him that time. (I wonder where Carter gets his urge to climb from?)
Danielle looked up a fun place before they got here, also, called Bounce You. It's a place with all those air jumper/slide thing-a-ma-bobbers. I don't know what they're called at all, but the pictures will explain it =) The kids had a lot of fun and once Carter conquered the obstacle course, he just wanted to keep going through it over and over. He sat out for a while to eat some gold fish, but got too active right after and kinda threw up a little at the end of the obstacle course. Kinda gross, but hey, the kid was excited!
Just as a little side note, I have now finished the Twilight Saga and loved it! Now I'm back to my usual blogging world...I need to catch up! So I'm starting with a story of my poor car ride back home from Target. So, I spent FOREVER in Target, first of all. I love that store, but I really was not intending to be there for over an hour! At the checkout, Carter really wanted these little Spree's candies in a little plastic container. I told him since he did so good in the store (didn't run away from me once!) that he could get them but he could only have one of each color after lunch. So, we went to the food court afterwards, which I also love since it's so cheap, and got a hot dog/icee combo. On the way home, he was trying desperately to take the lid off his icee and handed it to me saying, "Open, Mommy!" But I said we would wait to get home and he could eat it with a spoon. So, he reminded me of his treat and I was trying to open the dumb thing while I was driving and it exploded EVERYWHERE! So, I pulled over so I could at least get them off my lap and stuff. When we got home, I unbuckled his car seat and let him climb in front with me while I finished my conversation with Justin. All of a sudden I hear, "Uh-oh" and feel warm liquid seeping into my pants! He had peed all over the seat, already covered with Sprees...yuck! So, I said, "Let's go inside and get something to clean this up and change your clothes." As I was getting out, I grabbed my purse, which the Icee was leaning against and the Icee spilled all over the middle console!!! I couldn't believe my luck...thank goodness I have a little one who enjoys helping me clean!

I am so addicted to the Twilight series I literally have done nothing else in my free time! I love it so much and I'm almost halfway done with the 4th one...yay me! So, that's the reason why my blog needs serious updating, but I'll probably end up still waiting until I'm done to do all my pictures and everything. I'm hoping I like the ending of this book. So far, Eclipse (the third one) was my favorite. The first one I was loving Edward and then the second one I started loving Jacob and the third one was such a good combo of loving both of them (and being slightly ticked off at Jacob sometimes). Breaking Dawn I, of course, love it also, but it's kinda sad so far! So, hopefully everything turns out well. It's been interesting to have Jacob's perspective, but I kinda miss seeing certain things from Bella's perspective. Anywho...just had to fill you in on why I suck at posting lately!

Carter and I
Sweet little Libbycakes!

Carter has been very interested in saying prayers lately and always repeats us as we're saying prayers. So, of course we have him say his good night prayers every night and try to keep them simple with "Thank you for Mommy and Daddy" etc. While we were going through the Thank you's, he said one of his own. Thank you for Spiderman! I kind of chuckled and then it was over from there. We were trying to get him to say "In the name of Jesus Christ" and he kept adding in "Spiderman" instead of "Jesus Christ." Hmmm... we'll have to work on that one. He was laughing hysterically at himself every time he would say it, though. He's getting into what I call the "clown stage" of boyhood where they make crazy faces and say silly things to make people laugh. It's really cute...most of the time!

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.
he had to wait for since that seems to help the patience sometimes. I said, "After Nicole blows out the candles, we can eat the pie." Well, he decided to go blow them out himself so he could eat it...too bad they weren't lit yet, and he's not Nicole =) Ha ha
Finally I'm getting our 4th of July pictures up! We had an awesome day going over to Shane and Andrea's for a BBQ and fireworks! We had awesome food and I made my first chocolate covered (well, drizzled) strawberries for a Red, White and Blue dish! Poor Makenze didn't care for the fireworks too much and ended up going to bed shortly after we started. Carter loved those little Pop-its you can step on to pop! He also had a great time when his Grandma Gill helped him hold sparklers. And of course the day wouldn't be complete without a good ol' water balloon fight. Andrea's brother, Daniel, popped one right over Andrea and my head while we were taking a picture! It was pretty much on after that =) I got hit by one of the fireworks too that flies into the air! It hurt and I scared the ba-jeebies out of poor Carter who was sitting on my lap! It was a great time celebrating our great country with family. Thanks to Shane and Andrea for hosting!
