Conner 10 Months

Yesterday Conner was 10 months old. I can't believe how fast this is going by.
He is getting so big. He loves to eat. I think he doesn't know when he is full because he will eat everything you put in front of him. He loves to eat fresh peas, chicken, pasta, and watermelon. He is not a picky eater at all. He does still love his bottle too.
He is almost walking. I won't be able to hold him down much longer. (j/k)
He can play patty cake and roll 'em over too. It is so cute. (I will try to put up a video soon.)
He still doesn't say Mama or Dada, but he can quack like a duck. (Don't ask.)
He is a very friendly kid. He will go to anyone and make you feel like the most special person in the world, but he really loves his mommy.
I can't believe in just 2 months we will be celebrating his birthday!

Zoo World

Wednesday morning, I asked Tanner, "What do you want to do today? Go to the zoo, or the park, or maybe to Gulf World?" He said "I want to go to the zoo!" So after eating breakfast, cleaning and getting dressed it was around lunch time. I said, "let's go to McDonald's and to the park" Tanner said "NO, we are going to the ZOO". So we went to ZooWorld in Panama City.

Tanner got to ride a pony, all by himself.

The tiger was YaYa's favorite. Conner could really see all the animals and was amazed.

This was at one of the three shows that we saw while we were there. They were really good too. One was on wolves and we got to take a picture with the wolf. One was on birds and the birds did all kind of tricks and the last one we saw was with reptiles, small animals and a lemur. We also got to take our picture with the lemur, Juliann.

Tanner crawling in the tunnel to see the merkats.

The camel was too grumpy to touch.

Tanner fed all the animals at the petting zoo. I think is has his tongue out just like to goat.

Conner was scared of the horse, because it sneezed really loud once and got us all snotty.

The playground was really fun, but not too big so we could play and go.

Maybe Conner wants a little of that goat food too.
I am really glad that we went. It was alot of fun and we really saw alot of animals and it didn't cost too much. I am sure that we will be visiting ZooWorld again soon.

Picking Blueberries

Tanner & Nate picking blueberries at MaNeil's

Conner just like eating them

They were so beautiful and there were tons.

We picked 3 little buckets full.

You can never get these crazy boys to all look at the same time.

Art Campin'

This week Tanner went to his first summer camp. Art Camp! but he called it Art Campin'. They learned about colors and shapes. They painted and did chalk art and watercolors and drawings. Tanner particularly like the gluing.

There were several more things that I thought I took pictures of, but I guess not. They even got to do a canvas painting.
Thursday night after the camp was over they had an Art show.
Tanner had so much fun and I thought he did really good.
Thanks Karey, Sarah, Ms. Bonita, Mr. Phil and the Art Council.

July 4th Fun

For the week of the 4th we went to Destin and stayed in "Princess Daisy's Castle" as Tanner calls it, or Emerald Grande for the normal folks in the world.
We had a great time!!!!! We went to the beach on the ferry every morning and spent most of the rest of the time at the pool.

Conner had fun in the dishwasher & the kitchen cabinets.

The boys had fun playing at Destin Commons.
The fountain by the pool was beautiful.

We wore the kids out. They both fell asleep by the pool, but of course not at the same time.

We saw fireworks 2 times and they were "Awesome"!

A lady came with animals and they boys were really interested.

I love Nates face with the bird on his head.

The pool was great all the kids loved it.

We had such a great time!

Thanks YaYa and Earl!!!
