Happy 7th Birthday Pirate!

The Pirate all 9 pound and 6 ounces. BIG BOY!
I got a Nintendo DS...just what I wanted!
Daddy and The Pirate setting up his Nintendo.
PARTY!!! Pizza and Jellyfish Juice (Spongebob theme)
Alligator wrestling.
Spongebob Cake
The Pirate had a party with his friends on his BIRTHDAY! He was so excited. They had pizza, cake, ice cream and did a lot of swimming. He had a great time and got great presents from his friends.
On a side note, I can not believe how much he has grown. He amazes me everyday...good and bad. I am very proud of all he has accomplished. The best part of the day for me was hearing him read all his birthday cards on his own!

The AFTER Party

Chillin' on the gator.

Brother and sister. The Superstar is off to the side squirting them!

The Superstar...
The Mermaid...
and the Pirate.
Everyone left and The Superstar stayed for the night. We ate MORE pizza and cake. We swam in the pool till dark. They LOVED that!!!! And, of all things, they had a Spongebob marathon on all weekend...we got our fill of Spongebob. The Pirate and The Superstar camped out on the living room floor. They had a fun time!

Off To Georgia!!!

You can't go to Georgia without eating at Chick-fil-A!!!!

This Chick-fil-A is an original store...a Dwarf House. It has a "sit down" restaurant along with the typical fast food pick up. The front door actually works!!!
Brain FREEZE and ORANGE lips from eating TOO many popsicles with Pop Pop...
even The Mermaid had orange lips!
The Mermaid, Na Na and The Pirate.
I wanna touch a sting ray! and a ...and a ....
Arrgghhh ...says The Mermaid!
Looking at the exhibits at the Georgia Aquarium.
I drove to Georgia by myself with the kids in tow. This is the first time without Daddy. We made some extra stops and had lunch. It took 11 hours. We took our time! Na Na and Pop Pop were so happy to see us. The Mermaid met Puddles for the first time and we warned her....she steals food! We went shopping, to the movies, to dinner, the playground and The Pirate made a new friend and they played in the sprinkler. We really had a good time. Uncle Cris came to surprise Na Na on Saturday and we all went to the Georgia Aquarium on Sunday. Very cool place. But, very crowed. The Mermaid really missed her Daddy (after the first night!) and was in tears. We kept her busy!!!
Uncle Cris stayed the rest of the week and was Na Na's handyman and they went to see the Braves play the Mets at Turner field.
The weather was nice but got better after we was in the 60's at night....I think it even hit the 50's. Man...why does it have to be so hot here!
On a side note...we all wore Na Na OUT!!!!

Everything looks good!!!

All we can say is WOW!
The Mermaid's doctor does amazing work....The Mermaid had her cast removed today. We have not seen her hand in 2 weeks. Her fingers are swollen, discolored and full of tiny stitches. But, they are beautiful!
She is wrapped up again in gauze and fashionable lime green tape for the next 2 weeks.
All is good...
