Mommy, What's a Shark Say?

Ummm... not really sure. Mike decided the shark says, "I'm gonna eat you!" with a growling sort of voice. And miss Abby Kate readily accepts that answer like she does every other piece of information right now. AK was infatuated with the sharks at the aquarium last weekend near Morehead City. They had an entire wall made of glass for excellent shark-viewing. Abby Kate was the loudest person in the place that day... every other sentence was, "Just like in Nemo, Mommy!" and "Look at all those fish! I like all those fish!" She absolutely loved every second that we were there and has been talking about sharks ever since, saying "Sharks! Eat you!"


We also invited our neighbors for a play date this week. Tameka's husband is also a Marine, and in fact we lived in VA at the same time and our husband's knew each other back then. Tameka and I finally met soon after we moved here. She brought her two adorable kids, Devon and Tayhlore over for some playtime. Thanks again for coming, guys, it was fun!


And of course the week wouldn't be complete without GYM-NAK-SICKS!!! AK is getting better and better at all the exercises each week. Daddy was able to come and watch for the first time and he was very impressed! He got a couple of pictures, too...

SOOOO cute! We never really knew what to do with a hippo either-- we randomly open our mouths real big and yawn.

Those gymnastics photos are great. It looks like so much fun! Glad you are making friends who have kiddos! Happy belated birthday Mike!!!

OK, she's getting way too big for my liking. I'm missing her growing! She looks so cute in those pigtails and work out gear. You go AK!

Oh my gosh- Temeka's kids have gotten so big! I met Temeka around the first week we arrived to Virginia (actually same lunch that I met Erica for the first time)- she came to lunch but had to leave early because she forgot she left milk in her car. Hahaha... random memory.

Looks like NC suits you!
