ZhuZhu Ice Cream Party

We are right in the middle of summer and around our house we have definitely been taking trips up to our local ice cream parlor!! Summertime and ice cream go hand in hand.

We recently had the opportunity to try out some fun new colorful ZhuZhu Pets and have an ice cream party.

Thanks to MomSelect we received 4 ZhuZhu Pets, a ZhuZhu ice cream truck, and the ZhuZhu ice cream parlor.

The ice cream truck was an instant hit with Gavin, Danyelle, and Katelyn. After switching it on it plays music just like a real ice cream truck and the Zhu Zhu Pet is placed inside to drive the truck all over!

The Ice Cream Parlor came complete with drive up service for the ZhuZhu's and lots of tasty treats!

The kids had a great time playing with the ZhuZhu's and all the accessories and then we had an ice cream party of our own!

Thanks to MomSelect for providing the ZhuZhu Pets and accessories for the party. All opinions are my own.

Good-Bye Preschool...Its Been Fun

Katelyn "graduated" from Pre-School on Monday June 6th. Her school did an evening ceremony where all of the graduates came out on their red cap and gowns. The 3 Pre-K classes all joined together on stage to sing the graduation song they had been practicing for weeks.

This is what Katelyn sang:
I learned my numbers 1, 2 , 3 ( 1, 2 ,3 )
I learned my letters A,B,C (A,B, C)
I can even write my name with ease
Aren't you very proud of me ( proud of me)
Kindergarten Here We Come (here we come)
Kindergarten Here We Come (here we come)
So long pre-school, its been fun
Kindergarten here we come!

It was just the cutest little song with hand motions and foot stomping!

After the song, the classes were called up one by one to be presented their diplomas by their teacher.

Katelyn passed the time by:

Chatting with Jason

Playing with the balloons

And when her name was called she got to go get her diploma from her teacher:
But, after that, it was back to fooling around.

Using her diploma to sword fight with Jason:

Or use her diploma as a musical instrument:

Or as she is walking off stage, using the diploma as some kind of laser gun to zap the kids in the crowd:

Katelyn was so excited that night to be up on stage dancing and singing. I think the best part for her was wearing the cap and gown! She loved it!

And now, like she sang in the song....Kindergarten here we come!!

Happy 9th Birthday Gavin

I might say it every year...but...I cannot believe how old my baby is. 9!! So, in honor of that wonderful are 9 things about Gavin.

1) Gavin wants to be a veterinarian when he grows up. He absolutely loves animals. All animals. When we caught a crab on the beach recently I joked we were taking him home for dinner. The look on Gavin's face was heartbreaking and he insisted we throw him back in the ocean.

2) No big surprise to anyone here, but Gavin loves to play the XBox. His favorite things to play are LeftForDead, Call Of Duty, any sports game and Dance Central. I'll have to get a video of him dancing!

3) His favorite shows are Dragon Ball Z, Beyblade, Spongebob, and Fairly Oddparents.

4) He is NOT a patient person. At all. He hates waiting and becomes QUITE irritable.

5) Gavin has an outstanding imagination. He can play for hours all by himself with some of his toys. He loves action figures (spiderman, star wars, green lantern) and creates some pretty scary battles between them. Sound effects and everything.

6) He is NOT a picky eater. He will eat anything and everything. Sushi, spicy things, crab legs, asparagus, and even calamari. I just have to say- Hey Gavin try this...and he will. I love that about him!

7) This past season Gavin took ice skating lessons for 8 weeks. This September he wants to start hockey lessons.

8) Gavin is a little obsessed with zombies. He watches The Walking Dead with me. He loves to find all sorts of zombie moves on Netflix too.

9) Even though he is growing up, every so often he will still sit and snuggle with me. Its usually late at night when hes tired, but hey, I'll take it!

Happy 9th Birthday Gavin!! I love you, Mommy
