On Sunday we started off slow. We let the boys swim at the hotel, and then went to Downtown Disney. We had reservations for a late lunch at T-Rex. I found this resturant on line and thought Chase would love it and he did. There were dinos everywhere. We witnessed a meteor shower and the loss the of dinosaurs.
We are not sure who the random child above Matt's head is but our family had a great time.
After a little time at Downtown, we headed to Magic Kingdom. Where else do you start a Disney vacation.
We ran for the first ride we could see, maybe not the best idea. We rode Stitch's Great Escape. It was an Alien ride the last time I was at Disney. I thought since Stitch was involved it would be low key and something the boys would love. Boy, was I WRONG!!!!! They were both not very happy and I was worried we had scared them for life on the first stinking ride.
Good for us, they got over the trauma as soon as we found Splash Mountain. Both of the boys were all about that ride. We watched the Spectro-Magic Parade and then the boys and Mom and Dad called it a night, we did have 6 more days of fun!
Magic Kingdom was open until 3 AM on that Sunday so Matt, Amanda, and I decided to get a few more rides in.
This picture is just as our trip started. I don't think we got one in the car on the way home, but trust me we all looked a little more tired.
As we were getting off the plane in Atlanta the pilot let the boys in the cockpit. Just the thought of one of them flying a plane scares me to death.
We spent most of the day on Saturday traveling. So on Sunday we got up and started making GREAT memories.
We stayed at All Star Music. The boys loved swimming in the piano pool. Although we did not spend too much time hanging out in the hotel room, it was nice and just what we needed.

Today I want to share about our little summer vacation. Mom and I took the boys to meet Amber and her sweet girls, Kayla and Taylor, along with DV for a little hang time. We started at a camp site at Lake Livingston. YES, I said camp site.
Everybody had a GREAT time. The kids play so good together. Even though they are only around each other a couple of times per year. But they love each other, just like Amber, April, Jill and I did.
We had a great time. The kids went fishing, which was Chase's highlight. We spend some wonderful quality time just being togther. After our camping adventure, we drove into Houston for a couple of days. The kids swam and we went to the Children's Museum.
We made lot of memories, which the boys still talk about. We all had a great time.

We are all continuing our countdown to Disney. As of the time of this typing we have 7 days. I hope I am able to have lots of post when we get home.

Life at work is CRAZY. Everyone is sick and everyone is visiting us at CAPC. Since there is so much sickness, my boys could not be left out. On Monday Chase started running fever. He had a cough and it was nasty. At first we thought he just had an ear infection, but as the day progressed so did his fever. As high as 102 for him.......
On Tuesday, I got a call from my family UPS man and sickness had fallen on him hard and fast. By the time he got home he was miserable and had fever above 102. Just as I was getting these two guys well........Dawson and I were eatind dinner and he asked to go home. When we got home his was at 102 and would peak about 104 during the night. AGH!!!!!
As of this moment, Greg and Chase are on the mend and will go to work and school tomorrow. Dawson is still running fever and will hopefully be well after the weekend.

Lindsey is the most spoiled child I know. And most people would say I helped develop that part of her. When Lindsey was born I was a pre-teen and I thought she was going to cramp my style.....Well, little did I know that she would sleep in my twin bed, cruise Military Road with me, and become one of my best friends.
We have had cross words, fights, shared tears, disappointments, and many great accomplishments. She was there when I graduated Nursing School, she was there when both the boys were born, I saw her graduate college. And now I am watching her become a GREAT young women.
Ninny, as she is known at our house is having a Birthday today. And I want her to know that I love her very much.
Our DNA may not totally match, but God knew I needed her to be in my life along time ago.
I LOVE YOU SIS. Have a great day.

Chase has been begging to play flag football for a couple of years and I have steared him toward soccer. But this year I gave in. He goes tomorrow for his evaluation. He is also playing some tournaments with his baseball team. Dawson is sticking with soccer another year, which I am excited about, but he is also playing Fall baseball. So with church and practices we pretty much have something going everynight.
School also started this week......Dawson is in third grade. Which is very hard for me to believe. 8 years old and in third grade I AM WAY OLD!!!!! Chase is starting first grade. Both boys seem excited about their classes. And we have even made the schedule to bath and bed this week with little argument.
We are gearing up for our trip to Disney. Only a few more months and we are Florida bond! The boys are getting excited and so is JoJo. More to come on the trip.
Hope this makes the Blog haters happy!!!!!

Chase is playing with the same coach from last year, and is loving it. He plays pitcher and does pretty well, as long as he is medicate :).
Dawson is playing third base and throwing runners out at first. So he is going great too.
I dont have any pictures yet to post from the tournament teams, but we will have lots of time for that. Sorry I have been gone so long.

Dawson had an act with 10 other 2nd grade boys. They dressed up like the Village People and performed to YMCA. They were a crowd favorite. I am some what surprised that Dawson does this Talent Show thing. He is mostly reserved, but when he is dressed up with his guys, he acts like a different kid.
The teachers of Howard Perrin also got into the act at the Talent Show. Some of them are hard to recognize due to their GREAT costumes......

March has been a busy month for us already. We started baseball, which means at least one practice per boy per week, and some weeks they each had two. I am definetaly going to live at Holland ballpark for the next few weeks.
Greg and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and Greg's 40th birthday last week. We went out to eat with our dear friends Matt and Cindy. We are not big birthday and holiday gift givers for each other, we save that for the boys. But we did get a Wii fit, and said it was for Greg and Dawson since they both have birthdays in March.
We had the Howard Perrin talent show this week, and I hope to get pictures and Video up soon. Both boys were in the show. Chase did a song with his Kindergarden class, and Dawson had a group of friends, 11 second grades, that did a dance to YMCA.
The boys are starting Spring Break today and our life long friends from Texas are here visting and I hope to get pictures of the crew together posted soon.
I hope this will at least get the Blog stalkers off my back. I will try to update more soon.

Dawson had one TOTAL melt down on the way to school this week. Over something totally retarded but he was all out of sorts. He ended up having to walk to class with my mom, and we were all three worked up and stressed out.
Chase has seemed to have a good week. He began to get "worked" up tonight. But I think he was tired and had been good as long as possible. I just tried to hold my tongue and get him into bed as soon as possible. Chase did have an exciting night on Thursday. We had a basketball game and did not play very well in the first half. For some reason Chase decided to shoot the ball, which he throws like a brick....It sounds like the backboard is going to shatter. Anyway, he was bringing the ball into the front court and took 3-4 steps over half court and launched the ball.....AND IT WENT IN. I so wish I had a camera because his face was priceless. He asked me if it was 5 points!!!! Everyone was very excited, which only made him smile even more.
I promise all my blog friends I will try to do better with the blog this week. I want to try to post alot of the funny things Chase seems to be coming up with lately.....We will see.

A little quote from Chase tonight: We were praying and he said, "Geegus, I want to pray for he people I love and the people I like". What a great little guy.

We had another basketball game. The Ramsey boys did not have their best night, but the Jazz won. I have some new pictures but they are on a camera I dont really know how to use.....Hopefully I will get them off soon.
We have also continued to love our webcam. Lindsey and Justin got a new computer that had a webcam.....She called me on Tuesday morning and we got it all setup and got to visit for 30 mintues. It was great. When the boys got home they both got to tell Ninny about their week. I think she was more excited than them. (they just like to see themselves on the screen)

We do have another game tonight, and I borrowed a friends camera, so hopefully I get more pics.

On Sunday at church there was a great group that performed during service and then did a concert for service that night. Testify was the name of the group. They sang "I want to see Jesus", and it was UNBELIVABLE!!! They could have stood and sand that song for hours on end and I would have stayed for every minute. If you have a chance look them up, it will be well worth it.
We had basketball practice last night and the boys are all improving. Matt works well with them.
Maybe more exciting things to come..................
