Deep Fried and Delicious?

So, on Saturday we took the kids to the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz. It was a nice day and there were a ton of people there--I thought maybe it wouldn't be so bad since the Garlic Festival was happening on the same weekend, but I was wrong. Brad saw the deep fried Twinkie on some Food Network show and just had to try it, so that was pretty much the first thing on our agenda.

I thought it was good, but not totally fabulous. The powdered sugar and chocolate sauce definitely made it taste better. Brad was pretty impressed. I think next on his list will be the deep fried oreos...sounds pretty interesting? The day was filled with eating way too much bad food including corn dogs and garlic fries, but it was sooooo good!

Lexxa and Logan had a good time too. Lexxa was excited to go home with a big Sponge Bob, but she was afraid to go on the Merry-Go-Round :-(

First Words

Logan has been talking more and more lately and while he knows how to make the sounds “mama” and “dada,” he doesn’t really connect it with either of us yet (ok, maybe dada a little more). But I think his real first word was “up.” We sing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and he tries to sing the “up above” part…so cute! So, now, he’s constantly saying the word up and I think he’s finally starting to figure out what it means. But, here’s the other one—UNCLE. Yep, you got it, UNCLE. David has been trying to teach him how to say it for a while and he comes out trying to say it once in a while and he’s gotten pretty good. But, yesterday, my brother walked in the door and Lexxa said “Uncle!” and Logan followed saying “UN-KLE” almost perfectly and knowing exactly what he was saying and who he was talking to. What the heck? How come he learns Uncle first? As much as I wish he was saying “Mama” first, it’s too cute to be that bothered by him saying “Uncle.”

Rock and Roll

Ok, I'm way overdue for a post...so I thought this video was worthy. Not only does Lexxa know how to Shake her Groove Thing, she belt it out with the best of them. You can't really hear what she's saying in this video, but you get the point! And, the video is pretty dark, but again, you get the point :-)
