A day at the Beach

Hi Everyone, I don't have a lot of time to write but I wanted to put on a quick note. We went to St Petersburg, Florida Beach. It was Alexander's 1st time, he loved walking on the white sand and playing in the cold water. It was a nice cloudy 70 degree weather day didn't think we needed suncreen so we got sunburned. You wouldn't think on a cloudy rainy day you'd get burned but we did. I'll explain more on my next post why we went to Florida. Here a little video of Alex playing in the water & Devon's sister Teresa Boren collect Seashells that were all over the sand, he had so much fun.

Christmas 2009

We had a nice Christmas with just the 3 of us. Devon took 2 weeks off work so it was nice to have him home for the holiday. We decided to go to the Columbia, South Carolina Zoo and Aquarium, It was Alexander's 1st time at a zoo. We had fun walking around looking at all the different animals,reptiles and fishes. I think Alex's favorite part was riding on the Carousal & feeding the Giraffes by hand.
Also here in Georgia we went to "The Lights Of The South" where there were thousands of lights on display. We bundled up, had some hot chocolate and went on a hay ride down a trail with Lots of Christmas lights, it was a little chilly but we had a blast. On Christmas Eve we invited over Devon's Air Force buddy Adam Helt to spend the day with us watching movies and enjoying a delicious meal that included a Honey baked ham, corn, homemade Macaroni and Cheese, green salad and some sourdough garlic bread. It was nice to have someone else to enjoy the holiday with when our family and close friends live so far away. Our Christmas Mornin started at 5am when our Alex alarm clock went off waking us up. To me Christmas time is a lot more fun when you have a kid to watch them playing in the wrapping paper and see the excitement on their faces when they see what Santa Clause has brought them. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

One of my new year resulutions is to start posting more in our blog. I'm
trying to get better at making more
time to update our blog more often.
Best Wishes for Everyone in this New Year 2010!

A day at the Mall

With Christmas and New Year Holidays, all of Alexander's regular therapy sessions were cancelled so not wanting to be stuck in the house all day we took a trip to the mall. One of Alex's favorite places to go and Mom's cause after a few hours of running around and playing; by the time we get home the little one is all run down and ready for a nap. I wish Kids could share some of there Energy with us cause I could sure use some. Whenever we go to the mall I always have to bring about $5.00 in quarters so Alex can go on the little kid rides. Then the other time is spent going up and down either the Elevators or escalator stairs. And then finally end our time by walking around and around about 10 times the water fountain outside in the cold 40 degree weather. The mall is a great place to go when you want to get out of the house and want something to do that's not expensive. Have a Great Day Friends and Family!
