I would take the whole family (grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc) to Disney World/Sea World. I think it would be fun to go as a big group and since it's free I might as well take everyone. I think going to Disney is pretty self explanatory. We would stay at the nicest hotel at Disney (my family would be in the nicest room they have ;) ). I would get those pass things that get you to the front of the line. Eat all of our meals with different characters. We would spend a day at Sea World because I so enjoyed that as a child. A nice little private island for Kent and I would be nice too but I'm much more likely to be able to afford a vacation for 2 than for 17+.

Last before picture.
He did extremely well. Madisyn called the only noise he made "mumbling". His lip stuck out and looked like he might cry. I'm not sure how many different sets of clippers Mr. Ervin used, I think the noise bothered Ben.
I managed to make it without crying. I was very surprised at how white his hair looks now. I think the darker hair was all cut off. He looks different, less baby and more little boy. waaaaaaaa
This is the best "after" picture I could get. He kept moving. :)
They started the program with snacks. When telling Daddy about the day over supper, the first thing Ty remembered was the Kool-Aid, brownies, cookies and cupcakes (yes he ate all of that but it wasn't large amounts just 1/2 brownie, 1/2 cake thing - both Little Debbie snacks).

I have "discovered" a new way to wear Ben in my wrap. When he is tired I can turn him sideways and he will drift off to sleep. Must be nice to be able to sleep anywhere (he slept with the auction going full force) and to have someone carry you around while you sleep.
We drove across OK to AR and crossed 3/4 of the state. We only made two potty breaks and each stop took about 30 minutes. I made a nice little donation to the economy in Prescott and spent $60 on gas alone! Even after that, I only have 1/2 tank now!
We got back to Wynne just in time for Madisyn's ball practice. The weather was absolutely beautiful so I got some pictures of everyone playing.
Watch out! Ben will be crawling soon. He has the backward scoot down and he grabs things in front of him to pull himself forward. He also gets up on his hands and knees really well.
Madisyn is doing really well and is starting to get the hang of hitting a moving target. It's still something we need to practice but she is making contact.
Today was a difficult day because Madisyn and Ty both had practice. Madisyn was to practice from 5 until 6:30 and Ty's practice began at 6. I had to leave Madisyn at practice, take Ty to practice, leave Ty at practice, pick Madisyn up from practice and then return to Ty's practice. I don't think I have ever been more on edge. It was extremely hard to leave either one of them even if it was for a few minutes.
Ty's first game is this weekend. Go Team!!!
I think the official time when we finally pulled in the driveway was 8:00 pm and we had not had supper yet! Everyone (including Mommy) should sleep well tonight.
