These are the pictures from Jax first eating of his rice cereal. He's doin really well and while he did wake up for a bottle at 4, holy cow he slept till 10 yesterday. I fed him yesterday with Payton paying close attention and after i finished i put the bowl and spoon on the couch and got a little bottle for him and when i got back Payton was feeding him. Holy cow was it cute.

the shamu night show was amazing. They really upped their shows at night. Pyro., live rock music, great lighting. It was a blast

My favorite animal is the manatee. They are gigantic and clumsy and pretty funny to look at as well as watch but they are still so peaceful and graceful.

The night dolphin show was awesome also.

The Greatest Vacation Ever.

Ok this one is gonna be a long one but my awesome wife surprised with a couple day get away to San Diego and Sea World with the help of our awesome parents. When I finally figured out what was going on I cried a little due to complete shock, she planned it all, unreal. It is my top vacation ever. We body surfed on the beach, spent a whole day at sea world, had awesome fish tacos and lobster burritos, twice, swam with the dolphins-in the actual ocean (they came right over to us at pacific beach, there was a whole pod of them coming our way then 3 feet away zooming around us, it was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life). God along with Kristy put this all together and I cant thank you both enough. The extra shifts at work, extra tips, half priced san diego room, kids price sea world tickets with extra day, buy one get one free dinners. It couldnt have gone any better. Here are some of the pics and I will post the videos tomorrow.


I love animals, I love taking pictures of animals, it's almost a spiritual life changing experience to see these sea creatures and then to see how the pictures turn out is awesome no joke. this was my fortune from my cookie at panda express for lunch.

The cirque de la mar show was awesome. all acrobats and feats of strength. Kristy really enjoyed it, obviously




Fish tacos, lobster burritos, and then this monstrosity. and this is half eaten!

Jackson Bouncin.

Jackson loves his bouncer, at least until his legs get tired and he gets cranky. He is doing really well with it now but he slammed his forehead into it the first time he used it. It was sad but kinda funny. Anyways here are the pix.

I told Kristy I wanted some workout buddies to do this with me, I didnt expect these guys.

So as some of you may know I have been boing these workouts called p90x. It's a 90 day workout plan that is brutal military style workouts and excersizes. Anyways sometimes the kids come in and are bored so they start working out with me. The stretching and yoga poses they do are really cute. Here is a video of them doing the cool down of the plyometrics workout.

The movie, The dinosaur, and the wasp.

Overall it was a really fun day. We took the kids to Desert Ridge to see ice age and they did really well. Payton was pretty freaked out as we walked in and quickly got overwhelmed with the large building and even larger, louder screen but he got over it after a few minutes. Then we went to McDonalds for some play time and the had Ice age toys so they both got dinosaurs. Then later in the night Payton came in screaming pulling at his shirt. We took it off and saw large bites all over his chest and back. There was a dead wasp outside where he had been playing so we assume it crawled in his shirt and bit him repeatedly. After i ran to walgreens and got him some benadryl he was ok. Fun times.

here's the movie ending and the kiddos getting restless.
