J's preschool Graduation was so awesome. His teacher Mrs. K goes all out. They came in with their caps and gowns on and then performed all these different songs for us in between their individual speaking parts. Every time I would practice with J at home he seemed to mostly know his part but needed a little prompting from me and would always say it so quietly. I was a little nervous how he would do in public since he gets super embarressed speaking in front of an audience ( usually he just doesn't do it) but he did FANTASTIC he said it loud and clear and knew every word. The whole program he did so great he sang and danced and not once did he get embaresed. Mrs. K gave each child an individual reward based on them he got the "Smile Award" she said he is always good for a laugh and is always trying to make people smile. So he got the Whoopee Cushion ( which he has treasured ever since). Everything was so good and I couldn't help but cry a couple of times. Every time I would look at Jackson he was trying to get me to take a picture of him, so he would smile Super big. After it was over she gave all the kids Beach Balls that they could have all their friends sign as a sort of Yearbook, it was so cute, and a video with pics from the year which J has watched a million times.

A couple of weeks ago we took a trip to Atlantis in the Bahamas. It was the BEST! The only bad part of the trip were the flights we had 2 there and 2 back, 2 of the flights were 4 1/2 hours. I am certain I will never fly with a One Year Old again. I had been nervous for a month about the flight, and sure enough my worst fears were confirmed. It was just as bad as I imagined even with the help of Stephen and my mom. But we got through it and no one on the plane seemed to really mind ( course on the way back Stephen said Jerry Colangelo put his headphones on to drown out the noise) I just wish we could have enjoyed our first class seats a little more.
The first day there Stephen forgot Sunscreen and this is what he looked like the second day. Poor Guy
J's fav. thing to do on the beach was finding sea shells
As you can see Hud is not to sure about the sand
On the Ferry
J & S with their sea shell, they couldn't be more proud
Pooped after a long day in the sun
The favorite bus ride, and our Special Seats
Relaxing in bed watching T.V.
We celebrated my Mom's birthday and Mother's Day while we were up there, here is my mom at her B-day dinner. This guy sang Happy Birthday to her and he was so awesome.
Here are our $8 pints of Ice Cream, that Stephen had to have
Hudson loved all the marine life, here is him with the turtles
J & H found a hidden speaker with music coming out of it, so they started dancing of course
Here I am feeding the Sting Ray, it was so awesome
Hud got a little scared
J of course loved it and did it twice
On the last day all the boys got these $2 matching shirts from stand on the dock. By the end of the day they were ruined, both the boys spilt pepsi on them, Hud got Tomato Juice on his and so on and so forth.
My hubby dealing with the locals, he always prides himself in getting the best deal.

I love the Mother's Day Tea Mrs. K ( J's teacher) does every year. When we got there this year there were 11 portraits of their mom's drawn by the children and we all had to guess who's was who's. There were 2 that looked like J's and both were orange ( his fav. color) so I picked the first one. Right then I could see his face fall and I knew I had picked wrong he tried to whisper to me the right one but I already knew it. Then we played the "Newlywed Game" and he got nearly every question right. They were also asked "If they could get there mom anything what would it be?" Jackson answered " A purse! He knows me too well.
