So as you all can see it has been awhile since I blogged. I finally got a new digital camera (thank you Chris) but no one would show me how to download all of my pictures. Finally today I got Chris to help me. So now hopefully I can keep my pics updated for you.

We recently went on vacation! I was so ready. We went through Dallas on our way to Austin and went to the Fort Worth Zoo. It was so much fun. There are so many animals there. Carter loved looking at the monkeys. I did too. They are really fun to watch. I do think that Carter liked the penguins the best. Since we got home he walks around the house like a penguin. It took a couple of times before I realized what he was doing. I will try to get it on video and put it on here. It is really cute. I think Chris enjoyed the zoo also, even though he has never said anything. The entire time we were there all Carter was saying was "hippo". I didn't event know he knew what one was. Surprise! He knows exactly what a hippo is.

After we left the zoo we headed to Austin to see Chris's dad (Papa and Grandma Paula). I know Chris was looking forward to seeing them and playing golf with his new clubs. We had a really good time with them. We don't get to see them very much and was nice to get to spend sometime with them. Carter got lots of one on one time with Papa and Grandma. We did have a little drama there. Carter tripped and hit face, I mean teeth first in the coffee table. It was horrible! All I kept thinking about was how pretty his front teeth are. Luckily, the next morning they popped right back into place! Besides, the blood we had a great time. Carter even came home with a big car full of balls. Thanks Grandma & Papa there is nothing like picking up 125 balls out of your floor!

I almost forgot about Sea World. All I can say was that it was HOT! I have never been that close to sea animals. That are really cool and smart. Carter loved Shamu. We had really been talking Shamu up so that he could recognize him. We really did have a good time there. Next time we are going to Wonderland and telling him that he got to go to Sea World!

Chris also had a Birthday! His office was giving him a surprise party but someone ruined it. Since he is an entire year closer to 30 he went out and bought himself a present. A V-Rod Harley!!! I am so excited that Chris was so thoughtful and bought us something that the ENTIRE family can enjoy! I think his mind was cloudy when he came home with it. It is very nice and he looks great on it. He also rides ALONE.

Since got home from vacation Carter is non-stop talking. Really big words like teacher, see ya, motor cho-cho (motorcycle). I think he is a really good age right now. He can play alone, talk, and is completely entertaining. He knows what is funny and wants you to laugh at him.
