We went to Dallas this last weekend, and I couldn't believe how big it is! We didn't know what to do there (we need a Dallas insider for advice) so we decided to take the kids to the Dallas Zoo. It was so fun, and the kids had a great time. They make it so easy to see the animals there and the animals were all very active. The elephants were chasing a group of birds, the chimps were running around and building nests, and the gorillas were moving all around as well. Maybe it was because it wasn't too hot yet, but I have never seen such active animals. Keyton's favorite animal was the "ghost of the bayou" (a white alligator) and I think Seth's favorite was the female Lion he got nose to nose to through the glass. The wall of the restaurant we ate at was glass and looked right into the lion exhibit. The lions sit there and watch you eat and play with the kids through the glass. Seth thought it was amazing! I did too honestly! It was a fun weekend with family and friends.
Our little Keyton is getting so big. He turned 6 in January and is getting so big. He started Kindergarten this year and is doing very well. He loves to learn and is such a smart kid. Some of his favorite things right now are baseball, the wii, playing with the neighborhood kids, and reading Harry Potter each night before bed. Things I love about Keyton are his beautiful blue eyes, the fact that he still loves to snuggle, how sweet he is to Seth, and how he always tries to use the biggest words and then asks me if I know what they mean.
Seth Arnold Reddish
2 Years Old
Seth is now 2 1/2 years old. This kid has the power to melt my heart in a second. I have the hardest time getting mad at him because he just looks at me with those sweet little eyes of his, and I just smile. Even when he is being sooo naughty, I still just laugh at him. The thing I love about him is he has two extremes with everything. He is either yelling or whispering, he is either so sweet and gentle or a sassy little monster, he is either hyper or asleep. There is really no middle ground with him and I love that about him. He is also very independant. He can play by himself for hours while Keyton is at school, but he is always so excited when he gets home so they can wrestle.
