Scooters Jungle

A few years ago I went to Scooters Jungle for a friends 18th birthday party and was really impressed with what a fun place it was. I was pregnant at the time so I was not allowed to really do anything fun, like go down the slide and bounce around so I was a little bummed and always wanted to come back. A few weeks ago I went with the twins and my mother-in-law Margaret and my nephew Brett. We were in the toddler are for ages 1-5 and it was so much fun! I got very tired going on the slide over and over again, but the kids had a blast. Who knew they were such dare devils. I sure didn't. I guess it was a wake up call that they are not babies anymore. Where did this big kids come from? A few of the pictures are really out of focus cause they were super fact action shots but I love them anyway.

Not even two and she is already giving me the "Whatever Mom, you are so lame" look. I guess I should get used to it.

Josephs Birthday/Visitors

On July 15th we had the pleasure of having two visitors from South Carolina come. My mother-in-law Margaret and my oldest nephew Brett. They came out and visited for five days. During that time we went to Disneyland, went swimming, celebrated Josephs birthday, went to church, Scooters Jungle, and Racers Edge. It was busy few days.

For Josephs birthday we went to Disneyland, but on Sundays my family always does birthdays. So Sunday we went to my parents for dinner and had a little party. He got lots of fun gifts from everyone and a cake withs lots of candles :)

From me: a fishing puzzle to represent fishing in Alaska

And a charger for the Xbox controllers

From Kimi and Wes: the movie "Taken"

From Brian: I Tunes gift card. (I might have to steal that)

Big one from my parents: A new suit! It fits great:)
Ethan got very excited with all the present opening that he decided to roll around in the dogs beds

Hope you had a great Brithday!

On July 16Th Joseph turned 38! And how did we celebrate? We went to Disneyland! Josephs mother and nephew came to visit us for a few days and there first day here was Josephs birthday. We previously had two tickets someone had given us as a gift and Joseph got to go for free and the kids were free so all six of us got to go for the price of one ticket. I think a pretty good deal for sure. We had a great day. Joseph really wanted to see the fireworks and night and I was worried that the kids wouldn't make it that long so we compromised and left home later. WE didn't get into the parks until about 1:30 so we had to move fast to see all that we wanted. It was a special trip because it was my nephew Brett's first time to Disneyland. So the goal was to see as much as we could.
Overall it was a fun time. Bridget and Ethan did really well. We did not get to do much kids things unfortunately but they still had a good time. The liked Buzz light year, and Pirates of the Caribbean a lot. Ethan did not like the Jungle book ride at all, he wanted to be all done from the very beginning. The favorite was the parade, the danced and clapped, and had so much fun. It was a long day. I think it was almost 11pm by the time we made it to Its a Small World. Ethan fell asleep, but Bridget loves all the "babies" that were singing and dancing. She danced the whole ride with a huge smile on her face. That made the whole day for me.
