Kyler learned how to write his name this past week!!! One day he was playing on this toy (we call it the drawer!) and he came up to me and said "Is this my name?" When I looked closely- it really did look like his name!!! So I wrote it out for him (the one on top) and he coppied it underneath. Not bad, huh? I know that lots of kids can write their name long before they turn 5- but Kyler doe not like to sit still and so learning his letters has been a chore!!! But he is finally getting it and I could not be more proud! And by the way- he is doing amazing in his piano classes! He really gets it!!!
Yesterday it hit 80 degrees! Ao for dinner we ate outside and the kids spent a lot of time playing in the backyard. I love this wheather!

Tashana's mom made it and it was so cute that I hated cutting into it! But it was good!

Here we are going into Hollywood Studios (formally MGM). We got to go in an hour early because we were having breakfast with Leo and June from the Little Einsteins. Kyler has been in love with that show for a couple years. For a while, it was the only thing that we ever watched!
Here are a couple of the Einsteins!
My aunt's favorite pary was the Animal Kingsom. There was much more in this park than the last time I visted (6 years ago!).
Kyler was in love with Dinosaurs before we left for the trip. But after having dinner at the most amazing restaurant I have ever been too, T Rex, in downtown Disney- Kyler is now obsessed!!! In the Animal Kingdom we went on a ride called Dinosaur. It was so scary that I was sure he would be in tears. But I was surprised to look over and see that he loved it!!! So he picked out a couple dinosaur toys and carried them everywhere.
Yesterday we had a very long travel time. We had to get up at 5 am (3 in AZ) to carch a bus to the airport. We had to wait around a long time as our flight didn't leave until 10:30. We stopped in ST. Louis and we weren't supposed to leave the plane as it was continuing to Phoenix. But after the plane was all boaded they announced that a heating unit for the engine was broken. Hmmm, I wonder if it was broken when I was riding the same plane 30 minutes earlier??? We sat on the plane for 45 minutes before they let us get off and grab some food. Then we re boarded and waited another 20 minutes. Then they announced that the plane could not be fixed and we had to wait for a new aircraft. It was another hour before we were in the air! Kyler enjoyed watching the snow come down. I was scared that if we didn't leave soon- we might not get out of there!!!! When we arrived in Phoenix last night we were tired!!!!
We had so much fun but it good to be home!!!
