Mr. and Mrs. Gator
The goats were out sunning themselves and the boys got to pet and feed them, Michael was concerned (as was I) at first that the goats were possibly there to be FED to the gators. Epp!
Those goats would make a good dinner for these big fella's
So we decided that to even the playing field we would have gator tail for lunch! Mmmmm and what good gator tail it was! It was tastey-rific! Don'tcha think so mr. Aidan?
Once again, report cards came out and that means grade money and grade money meant hermit crabs??? Yup Michael and Cody both saw these little land dwellers and went nuts! Hey it's a pet that doesn't bark or meow, doesn't need more than one tiny bottle of food per year and will eat table scraps occasionally and lives in a cage...My kind of pet!
Michael named this one Des (short for designer, as he thought this looked like a fashionable cheetah printed shell) and his 2nd one was name Sea (because it's shell is sea blue). We'll discuss the names of Cody's crabs in a moment.
Matthew's grade money equaled googley eyes...hahaha! Nom nom nom...yummy eye balls.
kinda cute...kinda creepy no?
Speaking of Nom nom nom....Aidan had to have lunch out of the heat ( thank heaven's for A.C.) and away from that awesome swampy gator smell
Matthew also got two gator toys for his good (semi good ....ok well good for a 5 year old who is learning) behavior grades. He piped up and said..."One is named Shushey and the other is Carmen" lol Now where did that come from ?
Now I have to once again thank my friend Kimber Tower for her awesome baby gift. She gave me this baby carrier as a shower gift and MAN does Aidan love it and so does Momma! He spent 90% of our outing in the carrier and slept most of the day very happily laid against my chest while we took a carriage ride. Nothing like a sleeping angel on your chest with a warm breeze and history. It was so lovely and my hands were free to keep the other three corralled in the carriage..lol
My other three angels. I just love how they enjoy learning about history!
Ahhh...and here we discuss the name for Cody's crabs. One he named "shy" because it is rather anti social and won't come out of the shell...the other ....
It seems some one else had the same problem....HAHAHA. He was trying so hard not to bust a gut.
I so love Southerns (ahem....some of them). As we were walking the river walk and exploring the area Matt was about to snap of picture of the kids and I when a jogger passing by stopped and asked if he would like to be in the picture as well. Aww. And it turned out so cute. I was grateful. I love my family!
We also went into an adorable little store called The Louisiana Purchase where we bought EVIL fudge and fudge ice cream, also some very sexy sun glasses.
This must be how Aidan felt at the fact that he wasn't getting ice cream...hahaha.
Grr the picture of the jr high sign is annoying me as it doesn't belong in this post but refuses to delete.
This picture is of random trees growing out of the water along the road. It was so cool! It looks exactly like one of the shots in the John Wayne movie I love.
