Packing It All In!!!

First off, let me say that I am NOT a homebody! I hate to be at home. I would much rather be out and about with the world. However, since Reid was born 16 months ago, I have spent much more time at home. Having a baby at 37 will make you feel old in a hurry:) But this summer, I can't stand to stay home with Wyatt and Reid. They are both as restless as I am!!!

School starts in 12 days (but who's counting), so we are trying to PACK it all in before August 11th.

Wednesday we went to the OLD (newly renovated) Chuck E. Cheese in Baton Rouge. We usually go to the new Chuck E. Cheese in Baton Rouge. This CEC has been there forever, but it was recently renovated. It was really nice inside. We stayed about 1 1/2 hours because that was my limit of chasing Reid around. He wears me OUT!!!

Thursday my wonderful mother kept Reid for me to take Wyatt to Blue Bayou and Dixie Landin'. We stayed from about 10-3. We had a really good time with some friends from church. She has a son the same age as Wyatt, and she has an older daughter. They rode lots of things, and the moms actually got to visit! It was NICE!!!

Today we went to the Mall of Louisiana. We went to the indoor playground and rode the carousel! It was nice to be inside out of the 100+ degree heat!

This summer is costing me a fortune:) School better start soon!!!

First PB and J

Reid had his first PB&J today. I had made him one other peanut butter sandwich a couple of weeks ago. Today I added grape jelly. Not sure that he liked it as much as just the peanut butter. Wyatt likes peanut butter ONLY sandwiches too!

Reid's facial expressions were so funny when he took the first couple of bites. Of course, I missed the first expressions, but I have attached a few others. He loves some food, I can tell you that!!!! So opposite of his brother. Wyatt was making mac and cheese at the same time, so Reid had to have some of that too:)

You are 9!

My first born son is 9. (His birthday was July 11, but I am just now getting around to doing this post!) In case anyone is doing the math, that is half way to 18. Oh my! How can it be? It has gone by in the blink of an eye!

We started celebrating the birthday on July 4th. My family all came over and we had a cake for Wyatt. The following Sunday was his actual birthday. Lance and I took him to see Despicable Me and my parents kept Reid. Then this past weekend, he had his first sleepover party. He had 5 boys spend the night. It was "interesting" to say the least. They were really good, but I think that will be our first and last sleepover party.

Wyatt got an iTouch for his birthday. He never had a Nintendo DS or any other handheld devices, so I decided this was more bang for your buck! And the games are a lot cheaper too. He actually got it in May before we went to the beach.

He also got these two books. If you have little boys in your life who love animals, these books are THE BEST! Wyatt has 4 of them now. I actually found these 2 on clearance at Borders. He LOVES these books about animals. The first 2 he received for Christmas have started falling apart!
