Long time…BIG news!

First of all, my apologies for abandoning this blog! I guess you could say there was a drought, famine, or whatever you want to call it on the “2 are better than 1” blog. Anyway, my last post was Memorial Day and there has been a lot going on since then.

Let’s see if I can sum up…Adam and I went to the beach with my family for a week. It was the first time in probably 12 years that I have been down with my side of the family and we had a blast. Adam discovered his love of fishing thanks to my Uncle Drenner and his boat. P1030665
When we got back, Adam’s dad, my dad and I entered a 5k on a golf course. Hard stuff. Anyway, it turns out that I won 1st Female overall and Adam’s dad won 3rd in his age group! It was his first race he’d ever run…congrats Dad #2! I’ll post pics later…

The last week in June we got to go to the beach again with Adam’s family. This was my 4th year going with them (I think) and I always love going down there. We rent a house at Ocean Isle with about 12 of his other family members and it’s one trip that I look forwad going on every year! I’ll post pics later for that too…

I’ve saved the biggest news of the summer for last…drum roll please…
On June 10th, 2009, Adam and I found out that we are expecting!! Yes, it is true, I am currently 9 weeks pregnant! People have asked us, “did you plan it?, was it a surprise?”, well…let’s just say God’s timing is perfect and He knows what He’s doing! It actually works out pretty good…I’m due February 12th, 2010 and will be out for so many weeks, then I won’t have long until I get to stay home with the baby for the summer! Adam and I both are truly excited about this new chapter that has begun in our lives. There will be some changes, but change is always good…right? Now, I am new at this…obviously…so check back because I may have questions, wonderings, and comments for all you moms out there to help me out with! Until then, I’ll leave you with our first pictures of our little gummy bear!

We are truly excited to see what God as blessed us with. Please keep us in your prayers as well as our little one! I’m sure I’ll be posting a lot more in the coming months with updates and such…so be sure to check back!

PS: (It feels good to have finally gotten that secret out!)


Kids and Disney World

Well, Spring Break is over and it’s back to school. Sorry for the all the should-have-been posted updates that I never did! I’m a bad blogger. Anyway, Disney World was amazing and I would have to say that it is definitely in my top 3 vacations! If you’ve never been…GO! Especially since Adam and I don’t have kids yet it was a fun experience for us! I’m sure things will be different when we do have kids with us. As Adam and I took one of our many breaks in the parks, we came up with a list of criteria for families taking kids to Disney World.

Disclaimer: This is mine and Adam’s opinions, so if I offend anyone…sorry.

Criteria for taking Kids to Disney World:
1. They must meet the minimum age requirement of 7 (7 is kind of pushing it).
2. They must be able to walk on their own (no strollers)!
3. They must be able to go to the bathroom on their own.
4. Compromise is key if you have more than one kid when it comes to rides…so they must understand the concept of going on rides they don’t want to or rides their other siblings want to go on.
5. Fighting/arguing is not an option…Disney World is a magical place…don’t ruin it for your kids.
6. This kind of goes along with #5…don’t yell at your kids in the park (especially in line)…you will be stared at and your kids will be mortified.
7. Make sure they understand your expectations of them and you’re both on the same page.
8. HAVE FUN!!!

Adam and I came up with these “rules” as we saw each one of them being broken in the parks. I’m sure they’ll change by the time we have kids…until then, it’s just me and my babe (hopefully we’ll be back soon)!

Here’s what it kind of looked like:

Until then, I have to leave you with this…

M-I-C…see ya real soon!…K-E-Y…why? because we like you!…M-O-U-S-E!!

Florida – Sea World

Well…we’ve made it to Florida! This is actually our 2nd day here. Yesterday was kind of like a “chill” day to just be lazy. Today we went to Sea World! It was so much fun! The weather has been nice so far…today was the worst day of this whole week and it wasn’t even that bad (just a few showers here and there). The rest of the week is suppose to be sunny and in the lower 70s! Tomorrow is Adam’s Dad’s birthday, so we are going to the Magic Kingdom (he gets in free). I think that is the ultimate birthday present…going to Disney World on your birthday…man! Ok, back to Sea World…

First of all, when we got there we had to park clear across the other side of the highway (well, not really…just far away). We were able to catch a tram to the entrance which was good.

We stopped by the dolphins first…

Then headed over to the underwater viewings of Shamu…

Here’s some of the Shamu show…

Then we saw some penguins…

Last but not least, the seals and sea lions…

Here are the nice people who allowed us to tag along (aka mom and dad #2)…

And here’s us…

Ok, so I know this is a lot, but what do you expect?? It’s Disney World! Make sure you check back for updates…Magic Kingdom tomorrow!!
