The girls are enjoying a music & movement dance class this summer. You don't have to wear ballet inspired outfits. Half the kids do, half don't. But who could resist how cute they look in them. It's the first step they must take to enroll in the tap/ballet combo for 2 year olds. Mommy's are NOT allowed in that class. In their class now parents are encouraged to watch but and only interact if your child needs extra 'encouragement'. My girls need extra 'encouragement'. They still have some mommy attachment issues (well in all honesty it's mostly Addee). I am hoping this class helps them get over that. I have tried to leave them in the nursery at the gym and I get that dreaded call over the loud speaker. "Would the mommy of Addison please walk with your head hanging low to get your child as we can't handle listening to her cry anymore"...ok maybe not in those exact words but close. I have tried leaving them numerous time in the nursery at our church and about 10 minutes into the sermon some one peaks their head in and points to me and I have to duck out of church and spend the rest of the with everyone else's well adjusted children and my leg clinger. Don't get me wrong...I love my leg clinger but I would also love to be able to go to the gym every once in a while for more than 15 minutes. So cross your fingers that these prima ballerina's expand their wings and fly off mommy's leg.

We are off camping on the beach in Dana Point for 4 days.
This is the girls first 'camping' trip.
Hopefully all goes well.
See ya when we get back....

take your kids to see this exhibit. You will not be disappointed. It was great for kids of all ages. You are going to be in picture overload but I just could not leave out any of the images.
The exhibit takes you on the adventure of the Ark's story. It was incredibly interactive.

We packed in so much fun I think we had our share for the summer...well at least mommy has had her share of crazy crowded places for a while.
We drove down during the girls nap time so we only had half of the first day to play but we made the most of it for sure. We visited with the girls great grandparents. The girls are their only great grandchildren so far...they have two more on the way :) The girls really liked to show off all their tricks. They had huge smiles on their faces the entire time we were there. I think my grandparents did too. GGpa's drums and GGma's scarves were some of their fav's by far.
Thursday we took the girls to Sea World. They had such a great time. I think their favorite part was the Shamu Rocks Show. He was awesome. The girls could not take their eyes off him.
We got to pet dolphins, starfish and sea rays. They loved seeing Nemo in person too. The Shark Encounter was amazing. If you were considering taking your kids to Sea World Go GO Go!!! We had so much fun.
The Del Mar Fair was going on in SD while we were there and who can resist junk food, petting zoo's and creepy old men working all the kiddie rides. :) Not us! We ate till we got sick...not literally, rode a dozen rides...thankfully the girls were just tall enough to ride most alone, and petted a handful of stinky animals. The girls were in heaven. Then later that night we went down to the Oceanside pier to watch the fireworks show. I think all of Oceanside was there with us. It was crazy crowded. My sister in law wrote her phone number on her daughter's arm in case she wandered off. I had never seen so many people in one place. Unfortunately the fog rolled in just before the show so the fireworks were not visible...super bummer. But thank you to all the people who don't obey the laws and fired off illegal fireworks so my kids could enjoy. They were just as happy.
A day at the beach. We snuck onto Camp Penalton's beach because we heard they had a great cove for kids where they are no waves to knock them down. I will admit I was a wee bit scared of being put into the military jail with my toddlers :) BUT it was wonderful. We had a wonderful day. It was a relaxing way to end a crazy, busy, fun weekend.
