Rub-A- Dub-Dub...

My Aiden baby is in the tub...And he is also 17 Months Old today. I just love him to pieces. There are no words. He continues to amaze me every day. Here are a few more milestones he has accomplished.
~ He has hit the 25 pound mark
~ He learns new words everyday and is getting quite the vocabulary
~Some of the new words he has recently learned are:
Tu-Tu (That's what he calls tuffy)
~He picks up the phone....says hello (perfectly) and then jibber jabbers and says Bye-Bye
~He LOVES taking the dogs on a nightly walk which means leash in hand
~He LOVES our nightly bike rides
~He is quite the observer and can do ANYTHING that we do
~He has learned to push his ride on toys to whatever isn't in reach and stands up on it to get it
~He gets a cup out of the bottom cupboard and gets his own water in the fridge dispenser
~He runs super fast
~He now has 7 teeth and is getting a few more
I absolutely LOVE this boy!

Just had to share...

this cuteness with you. Here's some video clips from my camera that I captured of Aiden Baby playing at the beach. He absolutely LOVED it!
And here's my wild monkey running on the beach....Brother walked all the way down the beach under the over pass to find seashells and Aiden had to go with him...He took off running so fast and I ran after him capturing these cute little legs going as fast as they could go.

Beach Baby

He loved it so much...Listen to his cute little voice...So happy:)
Okay...I had a blonde moment with the camera...Although I am clearly not blonde...I still had to share this video with you because it was so cute...You just have to turn your head sideways...LOL

Day 5 ~ Legoland and Sea Life Aquarium

On day five we headed out to Legoland. We had never been here before either so we didn't know what to expect. After going there I would definitely recommend it to parents with 4-5-6 year olds. We had a great time but kids that age would absolutely LOVE it. Aiden was too small to go on any of the rides except a few of them which he didn't really care anyway. Trey and Mckinlee really enjoyed it too but the lines were super long. We happened to go on Star Wars Day which Trey LOVED but there were A LOT of people.

Trey, Mckinlee, and Me posing at the entrance of Legoland

This was hilarious...They had these lego people at the entrance and Jason and Aiden went over to them and I snapped this pic..It's funny because that even looks like our MDX next to them. They were completely made of legos and it looked pretty cool.

Trey holding on to his Lego Dad and brother....LOL

Miss Ninny was a little bit embarrassed...can you tell?

Look at the work that went into creating this LEGO baby

YAY! Star Wars Days

Okay, so I don't know too much about Star Wars and I have two boys in the house that ABSOLUTELY LOVE it so forgive me boys if I call one of these star wars people the wrong names. Here is Trey and Jason posing with clone toopers I believe.

And they have the force...Do you?
ps. I don't know who this is...Don't be mad Star Wars fans.

Darth Vader made out of LEGOS...pretty cool huh

I thought this was awesome...Here's Trey and I posing in front of the Las Vegas strip made completely of Legos. It looked so realistic...We look like giants in front of the strip.

The stratosphere rides on top were even made of legos.

I took a close up of the Mirage made of legos...can you imagine how long this would take?

Aiden loved this...The lego music intruments would play and shoot water when you would jump on the little circles in front of each instrument....It was really cute.

He enjoyed playing at the playground too:)

After Legoland we walked over to the new Sea Life aquarium next door...Aiden loved the fishies

We saw Stingrays....Doesn't it's mouth look freaky?

And we saw sharks

Lots of fishies

and cool aquariums

This aquarium had a hole that you could go under and stick your heads in...Aiden didn't know what to think. It was a pretty neat place and very educational. We had a fun long day...Afterwards we headed back to the hotel, ordered pizza, and hung out by the pool that evening. We had a FANTASTIC time in San Diego...I can't wait to go back:) Thanks honey for taking us on a great summer vacation this year. You always work so hard for our family and we appreciate it so much. Love you always!

Day 4 ~ San Diego Zoo ~ Beach ~ Dinner

On day four of our lovely San Diego Vacation we headed to the San Diego Zoo. (The best zoo ever) It was HUGE! We seen so many animals I can't even name them all. We walked around, went on a skyfari, and also a guided bus tour. We wanted to make sure that we seen everything.

Aiden, Mommy, Trey, Daddy, Mckinlee

The first thing we wanted to do was visit the Panda's...There are less than 2500 left in the world which is so sad. They are the cutest animals. When we went to see them they were all sleeping with their backs turned towards us. We were super bummed because we wanted to look at their faces. We decided to grab a little something to eat and when we were finished we headed back to the panda bears. I am so glad we did because this is what we saw. They were awake and eating. It was so cool to watch them. I just wanted to snuggle with it. The kids enjoyed watching them too.

We had to get a picture with the panda in the background. They had four panda bears at the zoo and this is just one of them. The other one's were over in a different area.

The zoo was enormous. After we got to one side of the zoo we decided to get onto the skyfari for a little ride across the zoo. It was pretty cool. And quite high up in the air. Mckinlee and Trey rode by themselves and snapped this cute picture of themselves.

We were in front of them and here I snapped a pic of my other two guys:) Aiden had just woke up and didn't know what to think of the ride.

What a silly little dude. He was pulling a face at the camera. LOL

And this was the other reason I wanted to go to the Zoo. I loved this little koala. He was so dang cute. I wanted to just pick him up and cuddle. I was so excited to see the koala bears. We had a great day at the zoo and headed back to our hotel. And we just had to hit the beach again:)

Me and my sweet babies at the beach in San Diego

WOW...Look at how talented he is:)

Me and my niece Mckinlee

See that house in the background....Oh how I wish that was mine

The kids had a blast playing at the beach

Aiden almost got knocked over by this wave...He had some pretty good balance I must say.

He LOVED it so much

I love my boy's short little legs. Look at how cute his little body is. I could stare at this all day.

Aiden LOVED sitting on his brothers back...Every time Trey was drying off Aiden came and jumped on him.

Awwww. Look at my Aiden baby's little footprints in the sand. Soooo cute.

Look at this face....He absolutely loved the beach.

He practiced a little yoga on the beach too

This picture of him makes me laugh so hard...He loved the sand so much that he was dipping his face in it. He wasn't concerned about the sand getting in his eyes...He just loved every bit of it.

We had a fantastic time a the beach and I was so sad to leave it...Sigh... If only my husband got transferred there so we had to move...Just a small dream I have...and now it was time to walk back to the hotel...We showered and got dressed and headed to the Corvette Diner to meet up with Jason's friends. It was the cutest place. They had loud music and everyone that worked their looked like they came straight out of the fifties. The atmosphere was great.

Trey and Mckinlee drinking their yummy shakes

LOL....Look at this wink...I freaking LOVE him. (and my other two boys of course)

Jason, Me, Aiden, Trey, Mckinlee, Shawn and Gwen

We ended the night with good food and good friends.  The kids loved it too. At one point our waitress grabbed the Trey and Mckinlee and they were all out there doing the chicken dance with a whole bunch of people. It was a super cute setting and  a fun time.
