crocodiles, kites, raccoons, and my amazingly genius children














This Saturday we went to Rosensharon Park with a bunch of Jon's dental school buddies. Holy cow! This place is awesome! We took a picnic lunch and fishing poles and enjoyed a gorgeous day in the great outdoors. (all of you still playing in snow--it was a balmy upper 70's and I got a tanline!)

They have a visitor's center where you can pet a baby crocodile. Of course Sevy freaked out, but at least Teik sat next to a raccoon.












We've recently bought Sevy a kite for our next trip to Galveston. Well, we broke it out at the Park and I was super impressed with our $1 purchase. Sevy loved it!












This is Jon next to where the boys were fishing. If you look closely, you can see the crocodiles (okay, I don't know if they were crocodiles or alligators.) but there is one in the background of this picture. How cool is that?! We were chillin' in a park where these crazy man-eating beasts roam free!

And now for my genius children. Yesterday was quite the day for us. Sevy was playing with the packaging of some things I got when she told me to look at her bird house. I looked over to find this! Seriously, this girl is a genius! Sadly, she reminds me of Shawn and I growing up making airplanes out of Hot Tamale boxes and contact viles! But we were well over 3 years old!

And then Teik decided he would not let Sevy up him on anything so he started crawling! We have it on video, but it was taking WAY too long to upload. Anyway, this is a full 2 months before Sevy started. Teik just decided last week he would really start rolling, and just got two teeth this past week. Needless to say, he's been sleeping pretty good thanks to all the stress of accomplishments. My kids are amazing!

I am not jealous of the Weather. I will take snow anyday. But I am happy to hear of Teik and Sevy's major accomplishments. I dream of having places to take my children some day. Sounds really cool.

I can't see the crocs, I think you are full of hooey. I wouldn't get close to a croc either, Sevy - even if it was a 'harmless baby.'

Your kids are pretty amazing. Did Sevy learn to build a birdhouse from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse? They just did an episode where Goofy learned to build a birdhouse and Drew was all about building a birdhouse from anything he could get his hands on after that.
Glad you didn't get eaten by the gators.

The first picture was crazy. Tiek and a Raccoon?

I also think the genius is in the genes. Probably from me or something:):):)

Check out that awesome bird house. Kids never cease to amaze me. That picture with the crocodile in the background is pretty crazy. I'm sure Jon could take him. Sevy looks so much like Jon and Zane it's crazy. But in a really really cute girly way of course. :)

Holy cow, that park sounds awesome! I can't believe they have raccoons and crocs there. Those are the kind of animals I pictures myself seeing only on a safari in Africa, crazy! Sounds like it was a great day!
