Great Wolf Lodge, Preschool, baby Blayze, and a zoo trip!

I wish I had the picture of Cassidee standing outside the huge windows in the lobby of Great Wolf Lodge. She was completely overwhelmed when we first walked a good way. We played, and played, and played, and had the best time with Amie, Bradley, and Charlie. We got there and wasted no time getting our suits on and getting in the water.
Here is my littlest swimmer.

Here is Jeremy and Cassidee as they are coming off the green "toilet bowl" slide. They came out of the slide backwards, hit the water, and their raft completely flipped over backwards. The guy behind me yelled "Oh Crap!" (not fun to hear when your 4 year old is on that raft....illegally, I might add. She was too short to ride in the first place, but oh well......) Anyway, Cassidee came up completely wide-eyed and immediately said she would never ride that one again. :)

The lazy river (or crooked creek....whatever) was more of her style anyway!

We had to drag the kids out to get them dinner and in their PJ's before story time. The kids didn't seem super impressed.......or maybe it was me that wasn't impressed..... but they looked cute sitting next to each other!

Mommies and kids with the wolf? coyote? woodchuck?

The Way's

My kids cooperate so well!
Cason, Cass, and Charlie swimming on Friday after a surprisingly good night sleep in a room all together!

Cass was a slide pro by the time we left!

Funny face!

Little swimmer!

Charlie loved the water spouts!

So did Cass and Cason

She usually tried to spray me! Glad my camera is waterproof!

Happy boy!
Big boy!

Running from daddy!

Cass getting help from daddy to pull a rope.

Cassidee specifically wanted this picture taken for BFF Reagan.
Cassidee says, "Look Reagan, I'm on a beaver!" (Then picture Cassidee laughing hysterically.....she thought she was so funny!)
All pooped out and taking a snack break. They were so worn out but had so much fun. Cason didn't wake up until 11 the next day..... I'd say he had tons of fun!

We've gotten some good play time in with baby Blayze. Cason is super sweet to her and often sits right next to her on the floor.
And he kisses her ALOT!

This week we had Cassidee's end-of-the-year program at preschool.

Standing between her two buddies. She comes home from school telling us that she was Princess Skywalker at recess and things like that. She's never seen Star Wars, but the boys told her that the Princess could fly, so she'll be any princess they tell her to!

My favorite line of the song:
"I am a great big ball of potentiality...."

This week was the first time I've ever taken their picture on this alligator at the zoo.
Ha.....Cass looks happy and Cason looks whipped!

But Cason did think it was funny to pretend the alligator was getting him!

Once again, we spent 2 hours in the MOLA and Cassidee stayed with this snake as long as possible. (I've forgotten the name of it....)

Blayze came over again and actually spent the night with us this week. And there is Cason sitting right next to her again.

And kissing her......again. Do you think he needs his own little sister?

And then we had Cassidee's last day of preschool on Thursday. They performed their program song on more time and Cass insisted on standing next to buddy "C."

She finished off her time with a great game of Duck Duck Goose before telling her friends bye.

And even though we have one more year before she goes to kinder, I was surprisingly weepy this week. She's just getting so big so fast! Cass and Cason will be in preschool together next year, so that will be really fun, and she is excited that he is going to come to school with her. I think we should start praying for Cason's teacher now.....bless her heart, whoever she is!

So jealous of the fun at the Great Wolf Lodge. We went but it wasn't so got stolen so it put a damper on the whole trip.

Cassidee sure is brave with that snake!! :)
