Summer Camp Field Trip to the Zoo

 Someone backed out of going on the field trip to the zoo so I was able to snatch that spot up. Special bonus: I got to take a day off work and see animals! Yay!  
 I only had 3 kids in my group.  Tommy and these two sleepers.  Made my job easy!!

 We saw many animals, starting with seals.

 Then we hit up the dolphin show.

We saw in the Splash Zone.  I've never done that before.  Some of us got EXTREMELY wet.   I got lucky and didn't get very wet at all.  Yay! 

 But much to my dismay, rain DUMPED on it shortly thereafter. Dang it!

Tommy is a big fan of felines.  He was so happy to see the tiger, as you can tell.

 Those darn tigers are so huge that even behind a window, when they walk by you, still terrifying.

 Tigers don't like rain either.  She was running all over the place when it starting pouring.  Put on a good show though.

I had two sleepers to my right and one sleeper on my lap on the bus on the way home.  I was so glad I was able to go.  It was a fun day.

Meeting Miss Emry

 Baby Cousin Wyatt has a new baby sister! The kids were so excited to meet her.
She wasn't as excited to meet them.  She did a lot of sleeping.  :-)

 She is a doll baby though, isn't she?

Emry just couldn't handle the noise noise noise! Those crazy, wrestling cousins!

 Wyatt had a great time playing with his cousins. Charlotte has no idea what that device is she's holding.  Phones don't have cords!!

 I didn't want to get two cups dirty so I made/let them share with two straws.

 The kids also took over Wyatt's water table. They had so much fun.

 Charlotte wanted to hold Emry so badly but she cried as soon as she tried so she was a little upset about it.

 She was happy to be in a picture with her though. :-)

 She definitely loves her baby cousin!

They both thought she was something special.  Yay for new baby cousins!

Indy 500 2017

 The night before the Indy 500 we went to Jack and Cec's graduation party where the kiddos were gifted some amazing masks and they wore them throughout the party.
They were a hit!

 So Adam and Emily and friends went to the race the next day too and sent us this picture as a challenge.

 We took this picture as a Challenge Accepted! :)

 Chris Pine waved the flag this year.  I do so love the pageantry of the race.  My fave part.

 Here's a pic of the boys bro-ing out.

 Followed by a picture of the girls sissing out, I guess.  I bought us matching Target sunglasses for the occasion.

 Here's a group picture of our seats.

We also went up to Adam and Emily's seats for a bit.  It was soooo much nicer up there.  Nice breeze and shade.

 We were almost sitting directly in front of them.  It was sooo hot down there.

 Hey! We've done this before! It's been awhile!

 That do rag is amazing. Thanks for letting me borrow it, Di.

 Time for some end of race group pictures!

 Gotta take a couple's picture too!

Hey  we've done this before too! Ha!!

Another successful race in the books! Happy Memorial Day!

Graduation Day and Last Day of School

Can you believe the school year is over already? It went so fast.  During the last week of school, Tommy's teacher told us to send in a bag of treats for the Aloha Party the day of graduation.

I whipped up a sweet little bag of treats for him which I was soooo proud of until....
I re-read the message from the teacher that morning before school and realized that she said she wanted bags of treats for everyone in the class.  OH SH&%!!! Luckily Andrew saved the day and ran to the store and got treats for everyone and still sent my homemade bag of goodness.  Ugh, major fail.    I need to go to the Derek Zoolander Center for Children Who Can't Read Good 

Tommy was super excited about his goody bag.  I don't know if the other kids were jealous because obviously they were not the same but oh well.  What can ya do? :) They certainly got a lot of cool stuff at least! 

So that night was graduation.  He was so proud and so cute.  I loved every minute.

The kindergarten and preschool classes performed songs for us.  K-5 did the pledge and the Star Spangled Banner.

He definitely wasn't nervous! :)

Then it was time for everyone to graduate.  I snapped a pic of Tommy's bestie while he got his diploma.

Tommy was the very last person to graduate. Awww.  He started at this school in October of 2011.  When he heads off to first grade, he will be have been there for 6 years! It was his home away from home.  He'll be there this summer but in August, he will leave it for good.  Let me tell you, he is EXCITED.  :)  He has a bit of the kindergarten-itis. Ha!

Look at how proud that kiddo is! Puffed out chest, what a stud.

I had to take a picture of him with his sis.  Look at that pose.  Where did she even learn that? She was in a cheeky mood that night.

Family pic! I love these people so much.

Tommy and Bode pic, of course!
Tommy and teacher pic.  We'll miss you, Miss Debbie!

We got pictures with the grandparents. Like I said, Charlotte was in a mood.

I have to post this one with only Tommy because Charlotte was being such a stinker.

I have to say it certainly makes for some great outtakes.  I can't stop laughing. 
The last day of school for Charlotte is a field day.  Each class wears a matching shirt and they go outside and do lots of activities.  I haven't attended Charlotte's field day with just her yet so I thought I would go this year.  I couldn't leave work when I wanted so I ended up eating lunch with her instead.  The pictures above are from the wonderful teachers who remember to take them for me! YAY! 

 We had a fun time at lunch.  Silly Hudson was eating his ice packs because of course. :)

 Then I took Charlotte with me and went to Tommy's field trip to the park.  Tommy is a wonderfully protective big brother.  Too cute.

 Maybe not always at home but around other kids, he is always watching out for her. :) So sweet.

 Bode is too!

 What a trio!

 At one point during the day, the teachers decided to take the kids on a trail walk.  OMG, I was terrified.  There were ravines and waterfalls and everything that I could just imagine some kid getting lost and falling or something but it went off without a hitch! Charlotte was exhausted though!  I had to carry her for part of it.

 When we came back, we had popsicles! Yum!

 Tommy, Bode, Miss Debbie and one of the preschoolers! Aww!

Good times! School is over and Summer Camp begins!  First grade and Pre-K 4's, here we come!
