What Little Boys Are Made Of...

Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails. That's what little boys are made of! 
We found out today that we will be having a baby boy join our family sometime in August. Ultrasounds are amazing and we got to see every little part of him today. He looks great other than he has a heart arrhythmia. They will monitor him closely these next four weeks (two office visits a week for heartbeat monitoring) and we will meet with the pediatric cardiologist (who just happened to be in the office today) and the perinatologist in four weeks. Most babies overcome this before they are born, so hopefully he will too.

Bonnie Springs

Parker trying to coax Kate into petting the deer.
Maggie didn't have much fear, until the deer licked her on her chin.

The kids were still on track break last week, so I tried to figure out things to do to keep us busy. I had heard of Bonnie Springs, a replica of an old western town that also has a petting zoo (although there weren't very many animals to pet). I decided to not say anything aloud about my disappointment with the petting zoo, but Kate and Parker voiced it for me. Parker's exact words, "This petting zoo is lame, there is hardly anything to pet."  They were much more impressed with the western town.

Disneyland - Day 3

We had a a great time on our Disneyland Adventure. We have never been for three consecutive days before and it was exhausting, but fun. The kids loved it.

Kate's Favorite: Screamin' 
Parker's Favorite: Screamin', but also loved Jedi training
Maggie's Favorite: Small World (much to her Dad's delight, kidding)

On our third day we went to Jedi triaing at the Tomorrowland Pavilion. Luckily both Kate and Parker were picked to participate. It was fantastic. I have never seen it before and neither had the kids. Obi-Wan Kenobi taught the kids to fight and use the force to fight Darth Maul. Darth Vader was also there with two storm troopers.

We waited forever (at least an hour and 15 minutes) to see three princesses at the Princess Pavilion. It was worth it though. Cinderella was there and she is Maggie's favorite. I found it amazing that we could get on any ride in the park in less than 15 minutes, but waited that long for the princesses. Why don't they fast pass it?

Maggie took a nap every day in her stroller which was surprising and Parker could have used one as well, unfortunately we don't have a stroller that big. We were able to get on just about everything in our three day trip and had a good time.

By the way, I think Cinderella was in some sort of pain...blow the picture up to see what I mean.
