Todd took James to his first movie at the movie theater today. I was working and my mom watched Blake. They went and saw Winnie the Pooh. James enjoyed the big screen and sat on Todd's lap the entire time. The movie started at 12 so he was also tired. He ended up coming home and sleeping from 2-5pm!
We arrived home from Michigan last night. We will miss the beach, but it is great to be home. Today we went over to Gia and Papaws for some pool time! Blake enjoyed some ice cream with Papaw and we can hardly get James out of the pool. He loves it so much! Blake also had his first molar come through over the weekend.
We decided long before we left for Michigan that we would potty train James during our 3 weeks there. We knew that it was either going to be the best or worst idea, but we were all ready for James to be out of diapers. We talked about "no more diapers in Michigan" all the time starting a few weeks before the trip. I think James really got excited about it too! Once in Michigan and in underpants he only had a couple #1 accidents, but the real trouble was mastering #2. It took the entire 3 weeks of some success and some accidents before he finally mastered it! We are so proud of him! The pictures below are from the beach. We brought a portable potty with us to the beach just in case he might need to go! :)
Sunday we went to the Lexington pancake breakfast! The firefighter/paramedics are always so friendly and welcoming. They have everything on display which is a kids dream come true! They even got a call while we were there which was fun to watch.
James really enjoyed checking out the big truck!
But, he enjoyed the food more...
Look at all of those pancakes! :)
Such a big boy this year!
I still LOVE our double stroller. I use it all the time!
Here is James checking out their uniforms/equipment.
I think James would have stayed at the Fire station all day if we let him.
