Fun with the Keevers

November 24, 2010 7:40 am

Life finally calmed down enough that we were able to spend a weekend with the Keevers.  Miles (and mommy and daddy) couldn’t have had a better time.  First we hit Nasa and got to see a helicopter and a coastguard boat.

Nasa has the coolest playscape ever with the fastest slide I’ve ever had the pleasure of riding.

The kids got to “fly” spaceships and the adults got to play in a few too.

The rides on the Kemah Boardwalk were a huge hit for Miles and Kaylee.  Miles got to ride a dragon which is now his new favorite thing since Darin introduced him to the movie “How to Train your Dragon”.

Miles and Kaylee were able to ride some “big kid” rides all by themselves.  Miles was having so much fun he was laughing hysterically.

I know I’m looking forward to going back!

Halloween

7:10 am

This year we had 3 full days of celebrating.  First we went to the MOMs Club Halloween party.

Lyla wanted to be a dinosaur just like her brother.

The next evening, we visited the Smithville Rec Center and played on their games.  It wasn’t quite what we were expecting but Miles had a blast playing with Pop.

On Halloween night we drove into Austin and went trick or treating with my dad and Eve.   Miles was a trick or treating pro.  Lyla was fine getting candy but she wasn’t too keen on talking to strangers and even got scared at a few exhibits.  Miles did a good job encouraging his sister to walk up to houses telling her “it’s just pretend” or “it’s fun!”
