Teeth, who needs them anyway...

Early Sunday morning Micayla lost another tooth!! I think that's six now.. not really for sure, I'm losing count. All I know is she has a lot of empty spaces in her mouth. I can't wait to see what she looks like with teeth again.

Swim Ranch ~ moving up

Micayla recieved her certificate at the end of her last swim lesson Friday and she recieved 17 out of 17 red flags and 20 out of 20 blue flags which means she accomplished everything for lane 2 and she has moved up to lane 3 for next summer!! Yay Micayla, we are so proud of you! Just lane 3 and 4 and you get your fish.. can't wait to watch all you learn next summer.
Below is Micayla with her teacher for lane 2 Ms. Nicole

and here is Micayla with her other teacher Mr. Adam, who she was very fond of :)

Here she is having play time at the end of her swim session, and she made up a game where she and the other kids in her lane were sharks, Micayla being the "mother" shark and they chased Adam around the pool for a solid 15 minutes.. sorry Adam (he was a great sport)

Fun times

Today at our clubhouse Spongebob and Dora came to poolside at lunch time to see all of the kids. It was a sweet treat for the little ones! No offense to the Dora fans out there, but my child does not like her so there is no pic with her ;~>

Hey, I guess Dora drives in style

Quick dip in the pool before we had to leave for swim lessons

Swim Lessons

Today was the first day of swim lessons at Swim Ranch in the second lane. Micayla was so pumped!!! She has been thinking about it everyday since lessons last year. She loves being in the water swimming and loves learning new things, so here we go.

Below, Micayla is listening to what they have to do next in the 10' end

Orlando Vacation

I will spare my viewers all zillion of my pics I took on our vacation, so here are just a few pics to show a little of what we did.. We started out at the Nickelodeon Hotel for 3 nights and let Micayla enjoy Spongebob and the 2 awesome pools they have. Micayla and Aca also had a private sliming which I videod so there won't be a picture posted of that but it was great! For you who aren't familiar with the slime of Nick, it has been going on a long time and kids love it :)

Here, Micayla is admiring the pool view from outside our room

This castle is in Universal Studios which was our next destination.. This is inside the new Harry Potter park. We were able to go in an hour early everyday to ride the rides and go into the shops. This does not open to the public until 6-18th.

Micayla on her favorite roller coaster in the Harry Potter area. It's called the Hippogriffe and it is super fast and crazy! This child wanted to ride the Hulk, and Dr. Doom and all the big rides with dad, Aca and Deric but she still isn't quite tall enough.. next year it will happen and she will be loving it! She fears Nothing.

Micayla and Aca got to get their pics taken with Shrek, Donkey and Feona while we were waiting for dad and Deric to get off of Rip Rocket roller coaster.. Donkey talked the whole time and he was hilarious!!
