Fun on My ATV

Grandma and Papa bought OK a Barbie ATV for Christmas last year. She loved riding on it then while I pushed her around in the living room of our house, but she didn't quite get that if she pushed the button that it would go. A few weeks ago she discovered that she could make it go herself. She hasn't quite gotten the turning of the wheel thing. This afternoon while CTW and I did some much needed leaf raking and gutter cleaning, she took off down the sidewalk and also did a little off-road riding. I have put two videos below. CTW kept calling her Evil Canevil because she would stand up and take off. She had a lot of fun and we laughed alot. I just love these fall afternoons.

Dancing Queen

While I cook dinner or clean the kitchen, I usually turn the CD player on. I love the Praise Baby CDs because I know the songs and OK loves them too. Here is a little video of her singing along and dancing. Before you criticize me for letting her stand on the counter, that normally doesn't happen. She was up there getting wiped off after supper and turned the player on(yes, she knows which button to push). CTW was standing close by and making sure she didn't tumble off. Enjoy!!! Hallelujah, Your Love Makes Me Sing.

Family Trip to the Georgia Aquarium

I have been meaning to post these pictures for a while. A couple of weeks ago CTW took a much deserved week off from work. Our original intention was to go away for our anniversary, but we decided we needed more family time close to home. We had a great week. CTW got to sleep in most days and I enjoyed having the help with OK during the day so I could get some things done that I don't normally have time to do.

On Wed, we got up and made the trek to Atlanta. OK did great in the car. She slept some and watched her favorite movie, The Little Mermaid on her portable DVD player. We ate lunch at the famous Varsity(yummy, yum) and then we headed over to the aquarium. We found cheap parking so we were really excited. We had been told by lots of people not to go to the aquarium during the weekend, also lots of people told us it wasn't worth the money. I have to disagree. I have been to the aquarium at Charleston and Myrtle Beach and this is by far the best one. There were so many fish and exhibits. The employees were amazing and very informing and the Titanic exhibit was there so we got to view some of the things they were salvaged from the wreckage. The place wasn't crowded at all so it was a great idea to go during the week. OK was able to do a lot of walking instead of riding in her stroller all day. She loved walking up to the tanks and pointing. It was way fun and so exciting to see her amazed by God's creation. I love aquariums and zoos so I was extremely excited. CTW enjoyed it to and of course the good food we ate. We ended the day by riding around downtown Atlanta and then finding a Cheesecake factory in one of the malls nearby. I have included a lot of pictures below and also one video of her viewing the Elephantfish exhibit. I hope you enjoy.
