Devon: May

"I'm feeding Audrey noodles, mom!"
Took the kids to the fair this year and despite the INSANELY hot temperatures they had a great time. We let Devon go on a pony ride on a little pony named Tex. He trotted that horse around and around with this shy little smile of pure glee.
He was pretty adamant about not wanting to ride any rides. Can't say I blame him, they don't look particularly safe and not to mention the germs :) He finally decided that he would ride this plane. Joe had to literally peel his fingers off the wheel. Sorry, buddy. Next year.
We road tripped to California and the only place to stop and eat was Taco Bell or McDonald's. I literally cringe when they takes bites of their "food" and don't encourage them to eat more if they don't want to, but it's such a treat for them since they've only been there a handful of times. He was so excited to get his disk shooting spy watch :)
Devon got an entire king size bed all to himself. He was so happy when he woke up in a hotel. He was just happy to be there.
Sea World was kind of a bust, but there were a few shining moments like running in the grass, running down the plank bridge and climbing the rope course. Adults got to play, too :)
Super fun.
Umm. I think he's excited to go on the boat.
Just driving this boat all by myself no big deal. :)
Daddy won this crab for Devon in one of those impossible-to-win claw games. I think this is a good spot for it.
Funny faces and piggy back rides.
Just dumping shovel fulls of sand down Audrey's diaper no big deal.
Climbing up the slide. Look at my strong muscles!
Can't even eat a meal without a super hero mask. And why shouldn't he, really? :)
Devon is the sweetest boy I know. He is thoughtful, smart, funny, polite and sensitive. He knows how to throw a punch and has a dresser drawer to store his arsenal of swords, guns and daggers. The shields and helmets needed their own section. He is such a cute little kid with an imagination that goes all day long. He can totally sit and hang with the grown ups and actually interject into the conversation or just sit there quietly. He is starting to play with kids when we are at the park and is getting more brave every day.
