Our Favorites. . .

***I just deleted half of my entry b/c I started getting paranoid about putting the actual locations of my favorite places on my blog. A psycho kid stalker would know right where to find us! So sorry for the randomness of this blog now--- : )

Today we went to one of our favorite parks to play. My kids LOVE it and so do I!

Afterwards, we went to one of our favorite McDonald's that is pretty close to where we live. But our VERY favorite McDonald's is actually kind of a long way from us. They have a thing that has stairs to climb up to get to the slide, so little people like Jack can climb up by themselves and get to the slide! At all the other ones, Hayley will pull him up to each step to help him get to the top---it's hilarious to watch. You can hear her the whole time grunting and saying, "Come on, Buddy! We're almost there!" Quite the workout for a 3 year old! : )

A fun treat today at McDonald's---one of Hayley's teachers at YCW this year is Ms. Sharla who happened to be my big sis in club at ACU!! She showed up right after us and we got to visit and catch up while our kids played. By the way---Mindy and Christine if you read this (which I'm sure you will) Hayley misses being in class with Jack!! I realized right after we started this year that if we wanted to start her in Kindergarten on time (even though she will be the very youngest in her class), that we needed to get her on track at YCW. And it made more sense for her to skip the 2's and go to the 3's than to skip next year. It was weird to realize, "Oh my goodness---she's supposed to start Kindergarten in 2 more years!!" She's doing great in her new class though and I know it was the right choice for her.

Anyone else have more favorites share?

My favorite little girl!My favorite little boy!

I can only say that for about 9 more weeks about one of them! I can't WAIT!!!!

So great to read your post - I can't believe how these kids are growing. When I peek in on them at school, I am just amazed! I am sure that Jack misses Hayley, but Matt and Christine kind of made that decision for him as well, only the other way. Oh well, it's not like they won't see each other!
Take care - can't wait to meet the new little one!

Hey, I read your blog earlier but had to stop for dinner. I meant to come back and comment. I was wondering about naming the streets because I too am so paranoid about that kind of stuff. I'm glad you are now on the safe side in came some crazy person does find your blog. Can't be too safe these days!

I love Kassandra's. It's close, inexpensive, good, and you never have to wait. What more could you ask for?
