The boys were out of school and some of us were off of work. We sure did miss Matt. What better way to spend the day off than to go to the zoo and enjoy their Dino event. We had a blast!

The dinosaurs were great. The zoo did a good job trying to make them look as real as possible. And honestly they made Gage a little nervous at first. Our smart Hunter enjoyed telling us about the dinosaurs and reading the information on them. He is too smart!

We had to get a picture in front of T-Rex of course!

The boys had a blast sliding down the slide. Last year Gage wasn't big enough but this year he grew just enough. The boys were so excited!

Our Normal Life

We got a camper. We have always talked about getting on eventually but weren't looking right now. One of Matt's patients were selling theirs and it was a deal we just couldn't turn down. So welcome to our family camper. Our boys are excited and will sit out there at times and just watch cartoons. Can't wait to actually go camping in it.. hope we survive!

Poor boy had the flu. He woke up one night with a fever so I took him to the Dr. the next day and wouldn't you know it.. he had the flu AGAIN! We spent the next few days at home and going back to school wore him out. Poor guy :-(

Crazy Alabama weather.. one minute you are in winter clothes, the next summer clothes. When the sun finally comes out and it is warm, we soak it up. Gage got some chalk stuff for his b'day and we had to put it to use.

And what warm day is complete without a Sno Biz?!!?

Happy 3rd Birthday Gage!!

Can't believe our little knucklehead is now 3. Time truly needs to slow down. He keeps us on our toes and always laughing because we never know what he is going to say or do. Even when we are trying to fuss at him we usually end up laughing. He is strong-willed to the core. When he doesn't want to do something, he doesn't care who he stands up to.. he is not going to do it. That will be a good trait later on down the road but not to his parents :-) He loves his brother more than anything and I love watching them together. He is a lover of staying up late at night and not wanting to get up in the morning. We are exhausted.. ha! We are thankful that God chose us to be his parents and can't wait to see what the next year holds.

We started the celebrating with dinner at Old Town Grille with family the night before his bday.

Yummy strawberry cake. That is all Gage would talk about. He even kept his eye on the waitress as she took it from our table. Boy loves his strawberries.

Never knew I was going to be the mom to two superheros!

We went to Let's Play in Birmingham to let the boys have fun. We all actually had a blast. I love that it is designed for even parents to play in. We will definitely be going back!

Took a break and went to Milo's to eat
Sweet Daddy would throw balls up to us so that we could load up the gun and shoot him with the balls. I know they were play balls but boy did they actually hurt a little. I was helping Matt at first but decided I would enjoy the shooting part a lot better ;-)

Happy Birthday sweet boy!!!!
