The Zoo

We took Peyton to the zoo today for the first time. He really seemed to enjoy it! He was scared of the ocelot(a small wild cat), but wasn't scared of any of the other animals. We let him feed the goat, but he didn't really like it because the goat took Peyton's whole and in his mouth! We think his favorite animal was the elephants because he just kept staring at them and even pushed up on me to get higher over the fence so he could see them better. At the end of the day before we left we let Peyton play in the water fountains at the front of the zoo and he loved that!

Busch Gardens

We've taken Peyton to Busch Gardens a few times already this season and each time he has a blast! There are two kiddie areas and Peyton likes them both. There are also other kiddie rides throughout the park that he can ride.
We let him ride the kiddie swings and he almost fell out of the side of it while the ride was going since there was no side straps! We decided that he can only go on rides with one of us or an older kid until he knows to sit still on moving rides!
We went to eat at the Fest Haus and Peyton loved the food and show. He really enjoyed watching the dancing girls!

I love this picture!

I took this with my cell phone yesterday afternoon. Peyton loves to play in the driveway and pick up the gravel, which is what the hand you can't see is doing! I just thought it turned out pretty good and had to share!

Bucket Fun!

Repeatedly today Peyton has put his sand bucket on his head and walked or crawled around with it on his head! He ran into things both walking and crawling and just got up and did it all over again. It's was hilarious to watch!

Blue Bird Gap Farm

Yesterday mom and I took Peyton, Khayleb and Jayden to Blue Bird Gap Farm. I had never been and was very excited! The weather was beautiful and we had a good time. The boys enjoyed using the camera to take pictures of all of the animals and birds at the farm and playing on the playground. We took a picnic lunch with us and really enjoyed it!

Peyton's First Haircut!

Peyton got his first haircut a few days ago. He did a great job! He took the comb from Cara and she let him chew on it while she was cutting his hair. He didn't need too much cut, but he needed around his ears trimmed and the back cleaned up. He did great! When Cara started to use the trimmers, he even wanted to hold them and "help" her!

His haircut makes him look so grown up! What a big boy!

Our trip to Cape Cod

Peyton and I went to the Cape to visit Grandmother for the beginning of spring break. We had a really good time! Peyton did well on the flight up and slept on the bus on the way to the Cape.

Peyton had a blast going through the cabinets and drawers in Grandmother's kitchen! They were very entertaining for him! Peyton even decided to surprise us and take 4, 5 and 6 steps together while we were there! He had taken 1 - 2 steps at home, but never 4! He did it several times while we were visiting. When we were at Beth's house he took 6 steps in a row!

We had a great visit! I only wish we'd have been able to see every one.
