Sea Life Aquarium

We finally visited the new aquarium in Concord.  The Octonauts come to visit so we had to go see them.  We went on Toddler Tuesday, so it was a lot cheaper.  We met the Norkett girls there and had a great time.

 It is a beautiful aquarium and has a few things that other aquariums don't have.  

This giant spider crab was amazing.

Jeremy was excited to meet Kwazi.

We have so many sweet kiddos. We snacked, went in the Disney store and then played in the kid area at the mall.  Our kids hadn't been before, so it was a new experience.

Jovie's Princess Hair

Haven and Jovie decided it was time for Jovie to cut her hair.  I was giving Jensen a haircut and Jovie came in and said she wanted hers cut too.  She said she wanted it shorter like me and haven.  She was tired of the tangles.

Dan Nicholas Park

We went to Dan Nicholas with the McSwains and Bradleys last week.  We played putt putt first.  It was my kids first time and they had fun, but didn't hit that many ball.s

The carousel is always a favorite.

Sawyer and Jensen were so cute riding the train together.

Panning for gems is like heaven on earth!

Paddle boats are really torture because you are sweaty and working like a horse to get them moving, but the kids love it.

Carolinas Aviation Museum

The last museum on our list was the Aviation Museum near the airport.

The kids were a little too young to understand the science and mechanics, but they enjoyed seeing the big planes.

They loved the cockpit.  There were so many buttons to push!

They have displays of airplane stuff from Hudson River crash.

We went to the overlook for a few minutes too, but it was hot so we didn't make it long.

Simple Moments

We have had such a full summer, but some of the simple moments are the ones that mean the most.

I think this is the most detailed drawing Jovie has done so far.

Fun times part 52

Our Y trail just added an awesome tension bridge along with a few obstacles. We have enjoyed exploring and playing in the creek.

Haven made a toy tower one day.

Horse lessons have continued to go well. Haven is riding off the lead rope now and even got to trot.

We hit up the last state park on our list with the McSwains.  It was beautiful.

They have a swimming beach and the kids loved it.

Grammy bought the kids new school shoes and they are practically all the same size.  Just half sizes off.

Mason and Jensen riding the tractor.  They love each other.

We finally made it to campmeeting one night and the kids loved playing in Taylor's tent.  We got treats at the shack and played until way past dark.
