Alexander started Kindergarten today!

It has been so quiet around here today... I am going to have to get used to my little man being gone for such a large part of the day. I miss him already! Alexander started Kindergarten today! I am about to pick him up soon and hope he had a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Alexander- 5 years old!

Alexander turned FIVE on August 11th! We were out of town in Orlando celebrating! He's going to have a little party on Saturday, but we had some FUN family time together over a few days!
On his birthday we started the morning having breakfast with Goofy and Minnie Mouse...
Then, it was over to the M&M world to get some m&ms in whatever colors the kids wanted.
Next, toysRus...
Back to the hotel for some relaxing fun in the pool.
After a little cleaning up it was off to downtown Disney...
Alexander really wanted to go to lego land for his birthday. He and daddy shopped and played there for a long time... even Audrey played with the legos for a bit.
Dinner at TREX! this place is so fun for kids! So many dinosoars coming to life... fire, meteor showers. We were seated in the ice ace period room... hard to do it justice with photos here but the ice changes colors and there's a big wooly mammoth and a baby wooly mammoth there in that area! The workers sang happy Birthday and Alexander got to blow out a candle...
We shopped in all the Disney stores down there, rode the train and even rode the carousel after dark! It was a fun day!
We love you Alexander! Happy Birthday!!!!
