 Last weekend we took a trip to SeaWorld. It was so much fun! Dan and I haven’t been in years and none of the girls have ever been. They have a ton of awesome shows to watch and lots of rides and different aquariums to look at. Olivia was about 1/2 an inch too short for most of the rides though so that was a bit of a bummer but everything else was great. I wish I would have gotten a picture of all five of us eating turkey legs, that was classic πŸ™‚P5265769

Petting the dolphins! Alyssa and Sierra said they felt really smooth and rubbery.



Ready to watch the Dolphin show πŸ™‚

Couldn’t miss the Shamu show!



Olivia was really worried she was going to fall off this polar bear.


This was a really cool ocean themed acrobatic show.


Ready for dinner! We ate at this really cool restaurant inside the shark exhibit. The whole place was one big aquarium so we were surrounded by sharks!

(photo taken on Dan’s phone. Can you see the shark in the background?)

Olivia graduated from Pre-K at Hyde Park Day School this year. WOW! What a great two years. She learned so much, made so many great friends, and had so much fun!

Olivia’s class did so much for us at Mother’s Day Tea! All the moms felt so incredibly special! Thank you Mrs. B!


My sweet girl <3


They read us a story!


Olivia, Wells, and Adyson getting ready to sing us a song.


My present!


They each made us a You and Me Book. It was really cool to see what Olivia wrote about me! Very insightful. πŸ˜‰

LOVE this! Olivia and her friends worked so hard to learn this. So sweet!

This video is long but it was so cute! Olivia and her friends kept looking back at all the mommies to see if we were crying “happy tears” <3
