Water Balloons

When I asked Will if he needed help blowing up the water balloons, he told me "No, I need to practice for when I have kids."

Katie's First Ballet Recital

Katie performed in her first ballet recital last night!  She danced to "On The Good Ship Lollipop" and she did great!  I was so proud to see her on stage, smiling and dancing. 

She loved wearing makeup!  I found it hard to put makeup on a 3-year old...especially mascara.  Her eyelashes are so long it is actually hard to put mascara on them.  What an awesome problem to have!

Will was an amazing big brother.  He sat quietly waiting for her, cheering on his other friends who performed before Katie.  When Katie went on stage he waved like crazy and would whisper her name loudly in hopes she would hear him.  He was also really proud of her too - it was really sweet to see.

Dress Rehearsal!

Disney Fantasy

We just got back from a week away on the Disney Fantasy with the Blanchards and the Kerrs!  We visited St Maarten, St Thomas and Castaway Cay (Disney's private island in the Bahamas).  It was a wonderful trip for all.  The kids really enjoyed it and are currently playing "cruise" which entails the kids being in their "cabin" (Will's room) and using their Key-to-the-World card to get in and out.  They leave the cabin to go to get food from Katie's room (from her kitchen).  Will usually comes back and announces what island we are visiting today.

 We went on the Disney Dream last year - what a difference a year makes!  They look so little in last years pictures.  

Disney cruises are amazing!  If you are looking to book one, I have an amazing travel agent recommendation.  She knows all their is to know about all things Disney.
