Recent Happenings

Where have these last few weeks gone? Can you believe we are creeping into October this week?                              Good grief….ya blink, and time just flies ahead.

We have had some fun around here, lately, and the calendar is not letting up anytime soon. That said, I better get my bootie up-to-date with these posts, eh?!?! 🙂


We are continuing gymnastics, once a week. Liam really looks forward to it and shows much enthusiasm. However, it has definitely been a learning curve for him to get used to a structured learning environment outside of daycare, but overall, we believe this will end up being a great experience for him from all angles — physical, social, and emotional. It helps that he has a friend in class with him, and here’s a sweet pic of the two of them hanging out after class. LOVE the expression on Liam’s face while he’s looking at Kenadie…..priceless!

Two weeks ago, it was PIRATE WEEK!! So much fun! Liam did activities all week long at school to keep in the spirit. We also visited the Orlando Science Center on Saturday (9/20) & part of the activities that day were in celebration of Pirate Week. They had this awesome wall mural below up in the KidsTown area. I had to capture a pic 😉

I am so fortunate to work for a GREAT office at UCF that allows me the flexibility to go to special events at Liam’s school, like his Pirate Parade. It was so cute ❤ …he made me hold hands with him as we walked through the school {heart.melted}

This was a cool little play pic they had a the Science Center. Now, ya know, I had to get him taking his pic in it, right?!?! 🙂

The main purpose of heading out to the Science Center early that Saturday was to check out their new Bats Exhibit. YES, there are REAL.LIVE.BATS! It was actually kind of cool because we got to see them chow down on some melon and avacado just after I snapped this pic (no flash, as that would disturb them). As soon as Liam realized we were in the same room that the Curious George Exhibit had been in, and that it was NOT there anymore, he was less than impressed. The kid cracks us up!! 🙂

We finally made our way up to the DinoDigs Exhibit on the top floor. Liam said, afterwards, that this is his favorite part of the whole center.

I told Stephen I am always the one “behind the camera”, so he snapped this pic of me & Liam….Liam is fixated on the moving dinosaur next to us. I think he thought it was real 😉

They also had a Sheriff’s Officer come see them with his police car. He thought that was pretty cool. He said he got to sit in the back of the car, too 😛

Last Friday, it was my mom’s birthday, so Liam & I headed down to her house and spent the day hanging out with her. We had a nice time 🙂

We capped off the weekend with making the house Halloween festive! Hooray!! So much fun! You have probably heard me say this hundreds of times, at this point, but each age with Liam it just keeps getting more & more fun. He had a ball helping with the decorations! It’s brings me happiness to see the excitement in his eyes as we do these things together. Love him!!
