Ice Cream Man!

Apparently the ice cream man doesn't just work in the summer time anymore because we got a visit the other day... in the fall! It was Korbens first experience getting ice cream from a moving vehicle... and he loved it! The weather has been just beautiful lately and it was a perfect day to enjoy some ice cream! The driver was a driving a little fast so we had to chase him down by the time we got our money, but it was well worth it!

Mmmm, nothing like eating a yummy Tweety Bird ice cream shirtless! :)

Welcome home, Ringer!

Next week is Joey and Jeni's wedding...so crazy! Korben is giong to be the ring bearer and Jeni was so sweet and took Korben to Build-A-Bear as his gift for being in the wedding. The kid loves doggies and had no problem picking out the one he wanted! He kinda got into all the fun stuff after it was already done but he didn't know any different and had a blast doing it anyway! We named the new family addition Ringer, after Korbens role in the wedding. :) I can't believe I'm going to have a new sister in just 9 days! Thanks so much for the awesome gift and experience for Korben! He is one lucky kid to have you in his family! Love you!!!






Doing some fluffin'....poor Korben didn't realize that Ringer was already stuffed by the time he started using the foot pedal thingy!

Ringer needs a bath before he can come home :)

I think he's pretty proud of his new doggie :)

Aunt Jeni dressed Ringer in his tux while Korben and Joey made his birth certificate :)

Uncle Joey is so much fun!

Some fun play time with Aunt Jeni!

Ringer is ready to go home :)

K's 18 Month Stats and Anniversay Fun!

This past Wednesday, Josh and I celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary. There are a few things on my to-do list and since it's been several years since our last adventure, I thought it was about time to cross something else off the list. But first we had Korbens 18 month check-up that same morning so let's start with his stats:

Length: 35 in. (95th %)
Weight: 27.4 lb. (75th %)
Head: 50 cm (90th %)

Both, his weight and length percentiles are up from his last check up which doesn't really surprise me... he is definitely a growing boy! I can't carry him around for long periods of time these days! And when he got his shots, he did not shed a single tear! I still cringed a little, but got over it pretty quick once I saw that it didn't seem to really even bother Korben in the least. I'm so proud of him!

Later, Josh and I headed over to Zero Gravity in Dallas to bungee jump! It's a thrill amusement park with 5 different things to do so we went ahead and made the most of our trip and bought the "thrill seeker" package and did everything. 3 of the 5 were just really big amusement type rides but 2 of them really got the adrenaline going! One of them of course being the bungee jump; the other one was a 200 foot free fall into a net. The free fall was nerve wracking because you didn't know when the guy was going to unclip you, but once he did, it was a lot of fun! The bungee jump was not nearly as fun as skydiving but it was much harder to do because there wasn't anyone to jump for you; you had to make the decision to jump off the ledge yourself! But once the jump was made, it was totally awesome! We got video of the bungee jump and the free fall thing so I'll let them show you the rest! :)
