We do not give him enough credit for how smart he is. He reminds me daily though. For example: The dishwasher was opened and empty. He picks up the silverware tray (empty) and then goes over the the silveware drawer and points at it as if to say "Shouldnt there be some of those in here?" I had no idea he knew where we got the silverware from.
So, in honor of his 17 months, we are going to DISNEY! Not really for his birthday, but wouldn't it be neat if we could do that for random birthdays? Anyway..here is the deal.
Glenn, Beth and Izabelle are living in Orlando until May and have graciously invited us to come stay. We really didnt think we could find a weekend until the end of May (sadly) that we were completely free, except this coming weekend. So, no time like the present, eh? We're doing it!
So, we are going from Thursday to Sunday. With a baby, we knew it wouldn't be wise to try to visit several parks so we decided to pick one. Animal Kingdom. Plus we want to be able to hang out with G, B & I as much as possible too.
I've been to Disney several times, but never Animal Kingdom. We think Baker will enjoy it the most because of the animals and such. It just so happens that I work with a guy who worked at Animal Kingdom and got us free passes! YIPPEEE!! I am pretty cheap so this almost free trip sounds AWESOME!
We shall see if the 8.5 hour drive will be easy with a toddler..ha.ha.ha. No worries I have my priorities straight. DVD player bought specifically for this trip- check. Carseat tray bought specifically for this trip- check. New toys- check. Bendadryl- check. (jk..or am I?)
In not as exciting news: The weekend was nice with the hot weather. Zoe got a HUGE inflatable beach ball that you connect to a hose and it squirts water out all directions. Baker laughed then cried, laughed then cried and it was over. Great for Zoe, not for Baker.
He did drive us around all weekend.
And last, I made something. Be very impressed.
Shirt- Hobby Lobby- $2.99
Iron ONLY applique- $3.00
However, they suggest adding a stitch around the edges anyway if you plan to wash it. Come on! Whats the point in "IRON ONLY" if I have to stitch it too?

I have to admit I had a few nightmares beforehand about taking a 1 year old because of the drop off into the river...
Nightmare # 3- Dogs. Now, I am not totally afraid of Baker being around big dogs, but there were 6 dogs there between everyone and most of them are big. You just never know when a dog will snap at a curious toddler.
If you look closely, you can see B Dozen chit chatting with Jamie.
Hayes was there too! Whats great about this picture is that we have a similar picture when Claire and Cameron were this age, I was 3, with our Grandaddy in this very same chair. Priceless.
Anna likes to tell stories...
We had a TON of crawfish and other fixins. I didnt realize at a crawfish boil, you basically eat "trough style". It was fun.
All the girls
Brent was cold so he wore his hood and everybody kept saying he looked like a drug dealer. For the record, he is not.
I rode a four-wheeler for the first time since high school when my neighbor Jason had one and my parents would make me wear a helmet. I was always so mad that they made me wear a helmet, but as I was riding I thought "Baker will be wearing 3 helmets and bubble wrap. Good call parents.
