My children always spend hours pour over websites and costume catalogs to decide what they want to be for Halloween.  Mandy decided on Little Red Riding Hood, Dallin wanted to be Luigi, and Layton wanted to be a green Ninja!

Pirate Day at Kindergarten

Layton loved celebrating pirate day at kindergarten.  He especially loved building his own boat (with Orcas on it!!!!) and then racing it.  His kindergarten teacher, Ms. Allen, comes up with the cutest activities for them!

SeaWorld 2013

The kids had a planning day off from school in October, so we surprised them by waking them up very early, piling into the van, and heading down to SeaWorld.  We had the best day!  This kids just loved all the animals!  An added bonus – off season weekday tickets are MUCH cheaper and the weather was perfect!
Stingrays:  My kids were scared to touch them even though everyone around them did!
Dolphins:  I love that when some of them swam by they took a moment to look directly at the kids.  It was cute!
The Pet Show:
Orcas:  This was Layton’s favorite part of the day!
Fun rides:
Nathan is in the blue shirt.  Mandy and Dallin are sitting in the back row.
While Nathan, Mandy, and Dallin went on the Atlantis ride, Layton and I sat and watched them.  Layton REFUSED to go on the ride even though he was tall enough.  Oh well.  Maybe another year. So this is what he did while they rode:
It was a wonderful day!
