I do things a little backwards

I posted 2 other entries after the potty dance one but the date was before it. So scroll down & make sure you have seen everything!


Today was the steeplechase races in Aiken. I have never been so it was a 1st for me & Casey. We wernt sure what to expect but we figured out it is just one big party with lots of food & a few races thrown in there for an excuse for everyone to get together. First we met up with Casey's Godfather Dennis & fashion advisor Paul. They were babysitting Barrett while his mom & dad went out of town. Here is Casey & her new friend. He wasnt real sure what to think about all this. The races were about 30 min apart so that gave Casey a lot of time to try to run off, we called it visiting & making new friends! We did see some other people that we knew. We always had to stop wherever we were to see the horses. Here they come!!!!
This guy didnt race, he just walked around on the field. Casey waved to all the horses as they went by. This guy got close enough to notice Casey waving at him & waved back. Casey just really wanted to pet the horse.
Casey only tried to get on the field once which really surprised me. This is where she stood to watch the horses go by.
Here is momma & Casey!
Casey checking out all the people.

Here are Paul & Barrett. Barrett liked the pigs in a blanket.

Overall it was a good day. Casey did get to pet some horses finally. Casey was worn out & went to sleep on the way home.

GRAB YOUR FRIENDS & GO TO MONKEY JOES!!!! Here Casey is with Joe.

For those of you who dont know what a Monkey Joes is, they have inflatable jumping, climbing sliding things!! It is GREAT!!!! I love taking Casey. It wears us both out but it is soooo worth it!

This is Autumn. She is 1 month younger than Casey. She had never been to Monkey Joes. She wasnt too sure what to do.Casey jumped right in there & showed Autumn what to do. See Autumn, you climb all over this big green thing! Then we grab momma & go to that big slide thing over there! She has to carry us up it but it sure is fun coming down! (says Casey)

I think from this pic you can say that Autumn got the hang of things pretty quick! This is one of the biggest slides in the place & being the big girls they are can come down it all by themselves. See Autumn, you can push on this big red thing too or sit on it & even if you fall off it doesn't hurt! Just get up & get moving again! RUN RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN, YOU CANT CATCH ME I AM THE GINGERBREAD MAN!!

After 1 1/2 hrs at Monkey Joes it was off to McDonalds. MMMMMMMMM is what Casey says. Nuggets & fries.
Brennen being the ham. He had never been to Monkey Joes either but had a great time.

Sharing ketchupThis is Autumn telling her mom who showed her a bunch of new things today. (that would be me that she is pointing to). Autumn had never 1) been to Monkey Joes, 2) had ketchup, she loved it! 3) had Dr. Pepper, she didnt want her milk after that & 4) she had never had the caramel that came with the apples for dipping at McDonalds. Who says i am not a good influence????Casey can share when she wants to. She was trying to give Autumen some Dr. Pepper out of the straw like i was.
After all this we had 3 tired children & 2 tired mommas!! I know that Casey & I went home for a 2 hr nap. I just wish this place wasnt 25 min away b/c we would be there a lot more. I guess there is something to say about Casey perfecting her jumping by jumping on the beds all the time.

On Sat after Casey had her bath it was nice & warm & she didnt want to get dressed. So i let her run around naked fully expecting her to pee on the floor. (secretly my hopes were that she would go potty if she didnt have a diaper on) While I was in the living room Casey came rinning in from the kitchen, flipped open the potty lid & sat down. then... SHE POOPED IN THE POTTY!!! This is the 1st time she has done this. I feel sure she wouldnt have done it with the diaper on.

If you look closely at this pic you will see barefeet! After we were supposed to get 3 inches on snow on mon, here it is on Sun & it is 80 degrees. So we headed outside for some play time.
Come on daddy!!!!

Casey loves to swing. Actually she loves just to be outside. She likes to sneak out the doggie door just to be outside.

Casey likes to watch the birds too. She sees them a lot quicker than i do sometimes!

Do you see them?? If not, Casey will be glad to point them out to you!

We cant wait for it to get warm & stay warm!
