A Very Fresh Turkey , Birthday Parties & Other Cuteness

Petting Zoo Turkey Attacks Mother Of 2!!!

It was a rainy August morning.  Was it my perfume? My flowing colorful dress? My eye contact? Whatever it was that turkey wanted a piece of me.  Haha! Well actually we had already met once before at ANOTHER petting zoo birthday party in July, same petting zoo.  I think he had a grudge against me because I threatened him then: "If you peck my kid, I'm going to boot you across the lawn!".  He had a challenging manner and I didn't like it!
Well this August morning as we were all heading over to see the animals... I looked at him and he looked at me and it was ON! We had a few close calls where he tried to attack me; someone always shooed him away for me.  But then I was talking to a group of parents and he walked all the way over to where I was standing.  He started weaving and fluffing himself up and attacked my leg... I had Jack in my arms so I couldn't get to crazy and fight so I took a bit of a beating.  Haha! I walked away with a few scratches on my leg and yeah, I was a little freaked out.  
The funny thing is, the turkey's owner maintains his Mr. Innocence: "Oh, he's harmless", "Pet him, he's friendly!"
Despite my scratches, I was laughing all the way home.  That d@#^ turkey!

We all went to a PIRATE birthday party recently.  Pretty sure this was party of the year for us so far.  Besides the great company of all our friends there was a "water bounce house slide".  At first we were all out there looking at it.  The men were all discussing the safety issues and steep factor of this thing...
 The next thing I know (I'm sitting inside with all the women), someone sais: "Whitney, Tomm and Tom are about to go on the slide!" They didn't have bathing suits y'all... I find them both on the slide in their clothes with big ole grins! It was thee most adorable thing you ever saw!! They went over and over again and everyone was having a great time on it.

Proof that kids keep you young...

Tom and Michael are very close buds and they talk about eachother all the time!
Two little angels "sitting" and playing together... it was early in the playdate.

And then... just watch!

Tomm and I laugh thinking of Jack doing the cutest thing... he will put his hands together and it looks like he is flexing his muscles because he will move his arms around but he keeps those hands together. So cute!
And those cheeks!!! Mama wuvs em!

Stay-cation

Tomm and I celebrated our 6th Anniversary this year!  I'm so proud and so happy to be Tomm's wife. I can't believe it's been 6 years! It's fun to think back over the years of memories we have together. It's even more exiting thinking about the future ahead with our awesome boys and more good times with my kick-A man!
 We had a weekend getaway to Orlando and stayed at Parc Soleil Resort.  We had a blast together there! It is gorgeous there with the pools and hotel and such a great place for some quality family time and R&R.  The boys had a great time, Tom Jr LOVED the beach pool and the playground! I wish we would've gotten more pictures but until they make unbreakable/waterproof cameras that actually take a good picture of a fast moving toddler, I'll take what I can get.

Thank-you for my babies Honey! Am I the luckiest girl on the planet?!
We left no door unopened!
 Tomm indulged us and rented this luxurious canopy for the day.  It was wonderful to go hang by the pool and then take some shade.  There were curtains on every side so I was able to nurse Jack privately. Tom Jr actually "stayed" in there and had his snacks with us despite the pool and exitement going on outside.  Daddy even bought him a popsicle!

Tomm Sr putting on some music and Tom Jr is always ready to assist.  
 Jack ooooing and ahhing.
 Jack smiling and screeching.
 Tom Jr loved the pool! It was a beach style so the water gradually got deeper the further he walked... he was grinning and it looked like he was thinking "I am such a big boy!, I can touch the bottom and even walk around."  Oh it was so cute watching him! 
 Time for a refill! (This is what his Dad has always said when he gets another can of "Juice"... now he says it)

A precious video of Jack cooing and screeching.
