Sweet Clay

I was going through my photos and saw a lot of Clay. Even though he doesn't always willingly pose, some times I can sneak some quickly. We spend so much time together and so we do so much together. I don't think I ever did a birthday post so here is all about Clay post. He is 3 years and 3 months old. He can be so vocal sometimes. He is always a chatterbox with me, but doesn't usually talk to others. When we went for his 3 year check-up he was very chatty with his doctor. She was so impressed with how he talked and how he acted. It was a proud mommy moment! 

Clay loves to juice!!!! He would use the juicer everyday if he could!

He loves candy!!!! He's not really a chocolate boy, more of a straight up sugar kid. He especially loves lollipops!

He loves to drink water out of the sink-weird!

He also loves to cook. He gets pretty mad when some one else wants to help cook. He can have a smidge of a temper.

I have several pics of him sleeping, but he really is not much of a sleeper. He can thrive on less sleep than my other kids. Poor me, I love sleep! He still takes a nap everyday though.

He loves green and especially green characters like Brobee and Larry. Pretty much everyday is St. Patricks day for Clay.

               He loves play dough.

Some other random photos. He is such a ham. He really is my wildest child. He can be extremely loud! You always know when Clay is around. He does not like when I use a quiet voice aka whispering. The only time I hear him whisper is when he says let me whisper a secret in your ear, it is always "I love you". Sweet boy!

He loves whip cream! He likes chicken nuggets and Mac and Cheese. He is crazy about mini pepperonis. He wakes up and wants to eat something right away. He also would eat all day if I let him. He loves yogurt and cheee sticks too!

He loves to watch movies and loves to look at the movies.

He loves preschool. He has come a long way with this one! He loves his teachers!

I sure do love this baby boy of mine. He keeps me on my toes, but he is a lot of fun!


After every bath this little froggie is so cute! I tried to get a cute pic, and this is what I get!

Spring Break part 2

After we went to the zoo and had naps we headed to the science museum, also free! This city has so many free things to do. I'm glad it was free because although it had some fun things, it was a little old for my kids.

The next day we went to the City Museum. This is a fun place, but it is so hard to describe. It is a kids dream! So many structures for kids to climb up and on.

They also have a free art space where you can create, which was great for this creative girl!

Clay needed a little pixie stick chug to refuel!

After the city museum we had a picnic by the arch.
After ther arch we headed back to the church to prep for the afternoon canvassing.

After dinner we went back to our hotel. This had to be the best hotel we've stayed at. The customer service was amazing!!!! The housekeeping always arranged my kids stuffies. At 8pm every night they had milk and cookies, big hit with my kids.

We did a little hotel swimming, I love how kids look in goggles!!! Again, only kid who will pose!

After dinner we had Ted Drewes. In the line a pair of undies fell out of Clay's pants. It was hilarious. I guess a pair was stuffed in there. He had undies on too. A guy next to us thought Clay was so cool for doing that. I'm pretty sure Clay thought he was odd. We headed back and went to sleep!

The next day we headed home. We stopped at the world's largest candy store (it wasn't that large). Clay picked a lollipop and was in heaven!

Spring Break Mission Trip

Our church's youth group went to St. Louis for a spring break mission trip this past week. We tagged along and had some fun with them. We left a day early and stopped at one of my least favorite restaurants for lunch-Golden Corral. I seriously dislike this place. I found a hair in my salad and told Cole to never suggest this restaurant again!

After we got to town we met up with another family and went to Fitzs. We came here last summer too. It is a root beer factory and restaurant. 

The next day we went to the zoo. They have a great zoo! It is free and has lots of animals. It was freeeeezzzzzing!!!! For the first hour the zoo is open you get to ride carousel for free and go in the children's petting zoo for free!

Coleman is my only child that let's me take his picture willingly and let's me pose with him!

After the zoo we took naps. Sleeping and hotels are not always a fun combo.
After naps we met up with the youth group and had dinner with them. Coleman was in heaven because he got to play sports with the youth!
