Ray’s Splash Planet

This past weekend we took the kiddos swimming at Ray’s Splash Planet here in Charlotte with a few friends. It was great just hanging out and letting the kids run and play. These outings are becoming more and more fun now that Caden is a little older and is able to do more things on [...]

Pumpkin Patch 2013

Pumpkin Patch 2013

Ugh, it’s been a rough one with Caden being sick and refusing to nap or go to bed alone. I feel like we are getting over that hump, but slowly. It’s still a fight just not as much of a fight. But, on top of that LT has either hit the 4 month regression or [...]

NC Transportation Museum: A Day with Thomas the Train

NC Transportation Museum: A Day with Thomas the Train

Thomas the Train was at the NC Transportation Museum this weekend! I heard the ad on the radio and thought Caden would really enjoy it since he’s all into cars, boats, trucks, planes and trains. We actually rented Thomas the Train the movie the other night and he loved it, so we thought we’d check [...]

A Box and Packaging Peanuts

A Box and Packaging Peanuts

Caden’s attention span isn’t very long these days just like any other toddler his age. We’ve tried the whole coloring book thing, markers, sticker books all of which are great but only last about 10 minutes. My mom had sent Lydia some clothes along with my old baby clothes in a few boxes to me [...]

Our visit with Santa

Our visit with Santa

We took Caden to see Santa today! At first he wasn’t too sure about the big guy. He looked him up and down and we tried putting him in his lap but he just wasn’t having it. So, family picture time it was. He didn’t cry which was good but you can tell he was [...]
