I feel like I have no time to catch up on the blog these days.  Lately I feel like all we do is run, run, run! I think I last updated in March and since then we have been on a few trips, ended our PreK4 year and Peyton has now become a 5 year old!

We went to New Orleans in April over my birthday and what a good time we had there.  It was definitely an experience.  We went due to Kevin having a home and bath show so the boys and I tagged along.  We did the city while he did the show.  We went to the Zoo, which was beautiful, to the Aquarium and to the Childrens Museum.  We also has a taste of alligator, the world famous beignets and pralines!  We has so much fun and look forward to another trip down!  I think Peyton's favorite part was riding the street car which we took to the Garden District and the Zoo!!

We came home and it was back to normal...Peyton's 5th birthday was May 15 and we decided not to have a huge party this year and instead took a trip to Disney!  Great decision.  To celebrate his birthday, we went to dinner with Nana, PopPop and Mimi to his favorite restaurant (Val's)!  The next night we took his cousins Cole and Bailey out to Mexican and Dairy Queen.  His actual birthday we went to The Cheesecake Factory where he got an ice cream sundae and also a nice large piece of oreo cheesecake!  He was in heaven!!!  We celebrated my birthday in New Orleans and went to Margaritaville where I was treated with an enormous brownie sundae.  He was in search for that around here...but we had to settle for the Cheesecake Factory!

We were going to take cupcakes to his classroom on Friday and celebrate with his friends when the school was hit with an outbreak of LICE!!!  I kept him out of school for about 2 weeks...I was a nervous wreck that they were going to get lice and I was not going to let that happen with our impending trip to Disney coming up on May 31!

Disney is a whole other post which will come once we get our camera back from being repaired!  It decided to die our last day in FL which wasn't a huge deal due to the nice "tropical storm" that was hitting our last day there!

In other news....Maddox is starting to potty train as of June 21.  We put the potty down and he has only had about 3 accidents!  Kevin jokes that he will be potty trained before he can talk.  He goes to speech therapy Thursday since his vocabulary is about 3 words!  No worries here...he will talk when he is ready!!  Pics and Disney adventure soon!!!
