Shriner's Circus

This past Sunday evening, we took Hudson to the Shriner's Circus. I didn't know what to expect...we had taken him to the Barnum & Bailey Circus two years ago, and I knew it would be much smaller than that one. We learned that smaller is GREAT! We were able to sit 7 rows back right in the middle and were able to see EVERYTHING! We all enjoyed it so much and I think we will try to make this circus every year that it comes to town!

I will forever be amazed by the person that is willing to stand in the middle of a tiger den!

To say Hudson had a blast is an understatement!! Look at this face:


This guy was clearly off his rocker:

Not the best, but had to include some family pics!

Hudson LOVED the motorcycles! If you look above, you can see the motorcycle flying through the air. This was his face EVERY.SINGLE.TIME!

SUCH good time...can't wait for the Circus to come again!

Busy Oklahoma Weekend

This past weekend we headed up to Oklahoma for a BUSY, FUN-FILLED weekend! Friday night, Kelly and I got to have some grown up time with Geoff and Tara. As we headed down the street to meet them, this is what we saw:

Hudson on his 4-wheeler and Paw-Paw chasing after him on the lawnmower. These two were in heaven!
Love them!! :)

Kelly and I met Mamaw, Tara, and Geoff for dinner at the Oklahoma Art Museum restaurant for an amazing dinner. Then, Kelly, Tara, Geoff, and I headed to the show STOMP which was fantastic!!

The next night, Paw-Paw and Nana surprised Hudson with tickets to Sesame Street Live.

Hudson enjoyed the show, but REALLY enjoyed his cotton candy!!

At intermission, he finished off his cotton candy...

...and became a bouncing, laughing child for the rest of the show!

Love weekends filled with family and fun!

Two weekends ago, we decided to take Hudson to the Museum of Nature & Science to see the shark exhibit. Sadly, the exhibit wasn't really geared towards kids, so Hudson zoomed through the exhibit and said he was done. Oh well! He is really interested in dinosaurs lately, so he loved seeing the T-Rex! I didn't have my camera that day, and the exhibit was so dark that our pics from our phones didn't turn out great. So, here are two pictures that kind of went along with our day! :)

Mommy & Hudson in front of T-Rex

Daddy and Hudson showing me their shark teeth!

Movie Night

These are definitely NOT the best pictures, but they are pictures from a GREAT night, so I thought I needed to document them! :) We have started having movie nights with Hudson and he LOVES them! We turn off every light in the house, turn the volume way up, and have popcorn of course. We get in our jammies, cuddle up with Hudson's blankets and several stuffed animals, and watch a movie of Hudson's choice. This past weekend it was Winnie the Pooh. It is definitely the little things in life that create some of the best memories! :)

Here's to many more movie nights!
