Mary Poppins, a 6 Year Checkup, and a 10 Year Anny

Joel's mom took Hudson and I to Mary Poppins last week and we had the best time! Hudson felt so special to be out REALLY late with us on a week night!

We got there a little early and had some fun with the props!

 He LOVED the show! We all did. It really was great and I'm so glad we got to go! Who says you have to have a little girl to do these things with?!?!

 Hudson cracked us up all night long. I don't know where this kid gets his personality from, but he just keeps everyone around him laughing. There were 3 older ladies sitting in front of us and right after the show started, they all 3 stood up to let someone through and Hudson yelled, "Uh oh! The 3 grandmothers are standing up!" I guess you had to be there, but everyone around us started dying laughing and I of course wanted to crawl under the chair.

I finally took Hudson for his 6 year checkup a few weeks ago. I forgot to mention it on here. Of course he turned 6 in MARCH and I was just now getting around to it. The main reason we went was because Hudson had been complaining that he couldn't hear things, and I had been noticing a bit more "not listening" than normal out of him although I still thought it was selective hearing. However, since he mentioned it AND we were due for a check up anyway, AND we have major ear problems anyway, we went on in. Of course he passed the hearing test with flying colors and the nurse giggled and told me that in fact it was selective hearing! :) Anyway, the check up went great. He was 50 pounds and 48 inches tall, 50-75th percentile in weight and 75-90th percentile in height. He is projected to be around 6 feet still, so that is great!
We also went in for both kids dentist appointments. Fun day, huh! Actually, the kids LOVE the dentist! Hudson got a mustache as his prize from the dentist. He said he needed to water it so it will grow! Ha!
 I guess this post is turning into being all about Hudson, but he did an Arts and Music camp at church last week and on Friday they had a program. Hudson had a special part in the program where he was up on stage with just a couple others and he did great! The program was wonderful, as they always are! Love hearing those kids sing! Here he is posing in front of his artwork from the week.

 We went out for ice cream afterwards. Harrison finally made a picture--yay!

Joel and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Gianmarco's on Friday night. The kids stayed with grandparents and so we had a kid free night for the first time in a long time! While it wasn't relaxing somewhere tropical for a few days like we had hoped it would be, it was still a good night celebrating #10! Maybe #11 will bring something tropical??? Hint, hint!

We took a trip to the zoo this weekend too. The weather was amazing for late July! It was a tad hot, but the humidity was gone so it felt sooo much better! We love our zoo!

This week, we are trying to soak up our last few days before school starts back next Thursday. And I turn 34 tomorrow---eeek!

We've had such a fun summer. I am so sad to see it go!
