Meeting Minnie!

Sunday, March 27, 2011


We had a lot of fun eating with Mickey, but the family next to us was equally as entertaining for Nana and I! Notice the power pack in his shorts for the camera!

A good portion of our time in FL was spent in the pool! The pictures tell the story!

Sea World

Being that Bennett and I arrived early in Orlando, we decided to take in one of the classic Orlando tourist attractions... Sea World! Now, this is one of the moments, where I think to myself - Can I do it, by myself? With him. Will he run away? Will I loose him? Will he start screaming and throw himself on the ground in a fit? But, of course we plan for the best and it sure was a great day. While we did have a few bumps (let's just say that the Shamu Show was more of a meltdown then anything) but other then that it was a great day!
Here Bennett is talking to Papa telling him about the dolphin show.
Personally, I really impressed myself with these pictures. All with the little point and shoot!
Bennett sitting so nice and perfect! This is a RARE moment!
This is where the meltdown started. Notice the foggy lens. That may have been me sweating from chasing Bennett around the stadium.
But, at the end of the day we have some awesome memories & pictures to take home. And here is the tired little boy that feel asleep on the cab ride home. As the cab driver asked to take me out to dinner?!?!

Bennett and I went to the Sky Zone in Plymouth a few days ago and let me tell you... he LOVED it! I just wish that it was closer so we could go back more often. It was a ton of fun - for both of us!

Sassy Di's

I took Bennett to have his hair cut at Sassy Di's this past week. The salon is named in honor of Dianne Heins, a friend of my parents that passed away of cancer a few years ago. It turns out that we know Jess, who works there! She did a great job cutting Bennett and he loved all the attention!

Advice for New Parents

If you wonder how you will know when your child is tired... A pretty good indicator is when he grabs his blankie and falls asleep on the coffee table. Aside from the fact that Bennett is asleep.on.the.table, also notice the outfit! Keen sandals, pajama pants, and his swim shirt - not sure if he was headed to the pool or to bed!

Airport... Jenga?

Bennett's newest obsession at the moment is airplanes. Since Papa is working on getting his pilots license, we spend a lot of time talking about airplanes, going to the airport, watching videos of flying and the latest and greatest is airport Jenga! Creating a model airport out of his Jenga game. Here Bennett is inspecting the light beacon (the play coin on top of the jenga). The airport garage is located near his right shoulder!
And here goes one of the planes for take off!

Happy Birthday, Papa!

Happy Birthday to the person that Bennett picks above all others! You are the apple of his eye and the best Papa he could have ever wished for!

Over at Ethan's

Ethan had Bennett over tonight so I could do a few things around the house and go work out. It was a great time... Bennett is still talking about it!

By the looks of the after, Zander and Bennett had a good time playing that night! Just goes to show what a 2 and 3 year old can do in a matter of less then 5 minutes!
