Graduation and Great Wolf Lodge

We've continued to have tons of fun with my parents here! Wednesday evening Jackson and Josh had their preschool graduation. It was too cute. I have been so happy with the preschool I chose for them. I have no complaints. The graduation program was well done as well.

Here's Jack walking in the "processional"... Josh walking in...

Their whole class. Notice how Jackson (back middle) is frowning and Josh (front right) is smiling? That's very indicative of how their program went. They sang a ton of songs and Josh sang his little heart out smiling from ear to ear the entire time. Jackson would NOT sing! He stood there, stone faced, the entire time. I was disappointed, but that's just how he is sometimes. If he doesn't want to do something, good luck making him. Josh was so stinkin cute though, it made up for it... They had a reception after with some food and the boys got to run around and play with their friends...Thursday morning they had a preschool picnic that Parker and I took the kids to so they could run around and have one last time with all their school friends. After that we came home and got packed. Parker and Tyce headed to the aiport to go to Utah and my parents, the twins, and I headed to Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg. I will do a separate post about Parker's time in Utah but, suffice it to say, Tyce is having a BLAST there being spoiled by grandma, grandpa, his aunts, and uncles and playing with his cousins Cole and Kate.


They had all been to Great Wolf Lodge before but it was my first time. It is SO great! I was very impressed with it...My parents upgraded our room to the "Kids Cabin." They LOVED sleeping in here...I bought them goggles before we left, best $10 I ever spent. They loved them and wore them the entire time...After 5 hours of swimming on Thursday we went to IHOP at 10pm for dinner. They were SO tired! Josh fell asleep after a few bites...Tired Jackson=fits. He was devastated because he didn't get the same exact kids menu as Josh. He was exhausted, we tried to be patient with him. He cheered up when his food came and ate a ton!When we got back to the hotel they were asleep right away...Friday morning we had breakfast at the hotel, then headed back to the waterpark! They played for 9 hours, only stopping for lunch...Around 4 they opened up the outside part. We were excited because we could lounge on the chairs while they played!We finally left the waterpark around 8pm, showered, grabbed some dinner, and headed home. Everyone was so tired! Saturday we were lazy all morning, then went to Dulles Town Center in the afternoon/evening. My dad watched the boys while my mom and I shopped for swim suits!


The twins have spent a lot of time wrestling with grandpa. Anyone that knows my dad knows that's one of the things he's famous for! Saturday morning he had them cracking up laughing just by playing with "stinky socks"...This was obviously before Tyce and Parker left for Utah but I got this off my dad's camera and thought it was too cute to not add. Grandma has spent lots of times reading stories and playing games with the boys...Again, out of order, but this is Joshy and I at the Bounce House...

It's been wonderful having them here. My kids adore them and it's so nice to have the company and the help. They fly home tomorrow morning, we will all miss them so much. Luckily we're going to Utah and Oregon in July, something to look forward to. Parker and Tyce come home Tuesday night. I miss them so much! Anyways, sorry for all the pics but we were busy and I want to remember it! Thanks mom and dad for a FANTASTIC week!!! Love you both!!!

I'm bummed we have to give back your husband and son tomorrow! We've missed you three but it's been so fun having Parker and Tyce here. Tyce is being such a good little guy and it's perfect with him having someone a little older and younger to play with. Can't wait for July!!

I can't believe they actually wore graduation gowns and hats. That is the cutest thing ever!
