Costumes, Shamus, & Fun Oh My

Well, we went and had the kids pictures taken in their costumes - it was the appointment that should have been. Everyone was so happy - for the first hour. Unfortunately they had us wait forever and with three small kids 4 and under that just does not work well. Here are a few photos I snapped before we had meltdowns.

The princesses together

And yesterday we went to Sea World!!! We had so much fun. And we got to dine with Shamu. It was so cool to see the whales so close. Here are a few photos from Sea World.

The Cummins girls and the flamingos

This sea lion found A and kept put - he wanted her fish

See how close - very cool!!

David helping the girls feed the birds nectar

And I will leave you with C's enthusiasm for Shamu!

The Camera and Big Boy

Big Boy is really starting to have fun when I pull out my camera :) Can you say photo shoot?? Check out the photos below.

I asked C to sit down and look sideways, seriously, and this is what he did. Natural talent I am telling you!!

And he loves to show off his tongue so this is one for fun.

It just so happens that we are taking the kids tonight to get their pictures taken in their Halloween costumes. I hope that everyone is as cooperative as C this morning. A is going to be Snow White and she is soooo excited because Snow White is a brunette like her. B is going to be Sleeping Beauty and she is equally excited because her dress is pink and that is B's favorite color right now (Hence the reason why we will be having a pink pony party for her birthday in December). And C has opted not to be a princess and he is going to be Squirt the turtle from Nemo.

Pumpkins, Pumpkins & Cake

We went to the church around the corner from us yesterday to get some pictures in their pumpkin patch. If we wait too much longer, the pumpkins will all be gone. Here are some photos from out adventure.

And of course I needed a good photo of the butterfly cake we started enjoying last night. The girls wanted to help me blow out the candles so here is one of that as well.

Thirty One

Well, I am officially 31 - as of yesterday! First, thanks to my amazing friends and family for all the gifts and well wishes - I feel very loved. My fabulous husband made me two cakes. I believe we will get to enjoy the second one (a butterfly) today - yummy!!

Here is my first cake - the one we ate yesterday (starting at breakfast)

And in case you are wondering, here is what it looks like with 31 lit candles!

We are going back to Sea World on Sunday to celebrate my birthday and David and the kids made a reservation for our family to dine with Shamu - I am so excited :) - look for the pictures afterwards!
