Kevin's First Tooth - GONE!

On the first day of school, Mommy was tickling Kevin and when Kevin turned to look at Mommy, something was different. A nice opening just perfect for a straw, a green bean, or a pixie stick appeared in Kevin's mouth. Kevin's tooth had been wobbly after a serious round of carrot chewing last week so we were on "tooth watch".  Kevin's first day of school was momentous for more than one reason. Below is a picture of our boy.

 The Tooth Fairy paid a visit last night and left stickers and $1. Woo hoo!

First Day of Kindergarten

A major milestone was achieved today! Kevin and Jason attended their first day of Kindergarten at the Miriam McCarthy School.  Kevin's teacher is Miss Galanis and Jason's teacher is Mrs. Martin.

Kevin said his day was great but couldn't recall any details other than the seahorse picture he created. Jason said he made a friend whose name he could no longer remember but they have the same lunch box.

Below are some snaps from the day. Enjoy!

Summer Vacation 2013 - Monday + Tuesday

On Monday we decided to head Northeast and visit Six Gun City. Joe had many fond memories of Six Gun City from his childhood. His newest memory will be of us pulling into the parking lot and being the 3rd car. Yes, the 3rd car in the lot. At 10AM. If I have to spell it looks like this "Closed...forever"

Not a bunch of quitters, we jumped back on the highway and headed for Santa's Village. We rode on the carousel, the Humbug ride (Jason's favorite), the cars, the FireFighter ride (10 times in a row) and the Rudolph roller coaster (7 times in a row).

The day was hot and we ended up eating ice cream near the water park. Jason really wanted to visit the water park so on Tuesday....back to Santa's Village and a visit to the HO HO H20 water park.
Jason in blue shorts, me next to him. See the yeti on the top left and Frosty on the top right.
In the middle is a big, brown bucket. More on that in a second.

Kevin on left in green shorts and blue swim shirt, me and Jason in green trunks on the right.
Better shot of the Yeti, the bucket and Frosty. 

Note the scary, dark skies - eventually we are asked to leave the water park as
a thunderstorm is imminent.

Remember the big brown bucket from the first picture? The entire time it fills with water and then  a bell rings warning you of what you see above. It's a huge amount of ice cold water. See Kevin in green shorts and blue swim shirt waiting for it? The boys loved it.

Jason having a great time.

Hi !

Summer Vacation 2013 - Sunday

This year we returned to NH, staying in the White Mountains at Nordic Village in Glen, NH so we could be close to Storyland and Santa's Village. We arrived in the evening on Saturday the 22nd. Sunday we headed out the door for Storyland. Here are some pictures from the day.
