The day started off with pictures then a run up to the street for the neighborhood "Back to School Breakfast". The kids loved getting doughnuts and visiting with friends before heading off to school. What a fun tradition!
Mckell really enjoyed her first day in the First grade. She said her teacher is super nice, she made lots of new friends (although she can't remember any of their names, lol), she LOVED school lunch, and she couldn't wait to show me the song she had learned in sign language.
Hunter also had a GREAT first day. He also said he really liked his new teacher, he made some new friends, and he liked playing a fun basketball game called "Revenge"out at recess. He was beaming from ear to ear when he told me that he was doing so good in a shooting contest that another boy came up to him and said,"Hunter you are a really good shooter! Let's be friends" I think that comment made his day :)
So I really didn't need to worry today. The kids did great, and they even remembered where I was picking them up. I think it is going to be a great school year :).

Lexi loved going down the pirate slide. She even got brave and went down with her hands up in the air :)
Mckell loved the Lazy River and the Dragon waterslides. She wouldn't go down the slides at first (she was a little scared). I told her I would go down with her, and she LOVED it. She went down by herself several times after that :)
Hunter loved all the waterslides :)
We had a lot of fun. As we were leaving Mckell said, "Mom, we need to bring Dad here. He would just LOVE it". I agree, we will have to come back with Dave :). Thanks Mckays for letting us tag along!

We all wondered how Lexi was going to react to Christian. She was just a little baby when he had left. She ran squealing with delight to my mom, and then realized everyone else was running to Christian, so she did too :) I think she was a little unsure why we were hugging this stranger, but that didn't stop her from doing it too, lol.The kids had fun jumping on the tramp with Christian, and Mckell was very upset when Christian's friends all showed up and he wasn't playing with her anymore, hahaha. It is good to have him home!
Lexi playing on the splash pad.
Jared and Hunter. Hunter really wanted to go and help Dave look for Jared, and was a little bummed that we didn't let him. After hearing Dave's story about their all nighter, I'm glad we didn't have him go.

Lexi was in heaven having her little friend Melyn there to swim at her grandmas. She had to show Melyn everything that her grandma had, from toys to swingsets. She was like a little tour guide showing Melyn around :)
Hunter and Mckell discussing everyone who came to the party :) They thought it was so cool to have all their friends there at the same time, lol.
One little girl refered to Darindas house as the other Hawaii. So cute!

This was Lexi's first time to the museum. She didn't want to leave :)
The kids took part in the "Step on Stage" play. All 3 of them were fish. Mckell LOVED being up on stage. She cracks me up.
Hunter is at a funny stage lately. He hates girls! While we were waiting for the play to start some girl (about his age) came and sat next to him on the bench with her family. He scooted over, closer to me, to get away from her a little bit, and what does she do? Move close to him. He kept scooting over and she kept moving closer to him. It got to the point where there was no more room to scoot and he was freaking out, lol. He kept whispering for me to move over, and would squeeze my hand because this girl was basically on his lap. He was totally grossed out! I couldn't help but to laugh. He couldn't get away from this girl, lol. He ended up volunteering to be in the play as an attempt to get away from her, but that didn't work cause she volunteered to be in the play too. :)
Hunter loved playing against me in a game of big chess.
Hunter cracks me up :)
The kids had fun exploring, dressing up, and playing. Like I said before, they didn't want to leave :)
