Great Wolf Lodge

My parents treated us to a weekend away at Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos. They have an indoor water park with lots of activities for toddlers. Jack loved playing in the baby pool and going down the little water slides. They even let us take him down an adult slide. I thought he would be scared because the slide was dark and enclosed but he laughed the whole way down. And then made us take him three more times. Unfortunately we forgot to take pictures inside! At night they had a show for kids with animals that sing, Santa and Rudolf. At the end of the show it snow inside! Jack danced during the whole show.

Team Edward

I finally got to see Twilight today at the movies. I have read all four books of the Twilight saga and have been anxiously anticipating the movie. I loved, loved, loved it. As good as the book? No. But SO worth the money! Can't wait for the next three.

Jack woke up in a very bad mood on Halloween. He has two molars coming in and has been very cranky lately. Jeff and I didn't know if making him wear a skunk costume and knock on people's doors was the best idea but decided to do it anyway. Once he realized that ringing doorbells brought candy his mood quickly changed. He caught on quickly. We took him to my grandparents neighborhood and then to my dad's. All of the neighbors thought he was so cute in his skunk costume.

Hershey Park, Octoberfest and Shadybrook Farm

Last Sunday UPS rented Hershey Park for its employees. My mom and sister came with us so we could take turns going on rides and watching Jack. We rode all the good rollercoasters and Jack went on every kid ride he could. That same weekend we went to an Octoberfest across the street from our house. For two weeks Jack and I watched them set up the rides and food stands. Every night they would turn the lights on and test the rides. Finally on Sat. it opened. Jack was so exited. He went on a few rides and rode a pony. They had a small petting farm with a baby pig. That's where we spend most of our time. I was ready to take that pig home he was so cute. My mom and I took Jack to pick his first pumpkin. At the pumpkin patch they also had a haunted house. They let me take Jack through it (with the lights on and everything turned off) and I have to say it was still a bit scary. He had a death grip on my arm. Probably not the best idea to take a one year old through a haunted house but living with me he should probably get used to it. Halloween is my favorite time of year!

Introducing Ryan Jamal

On Saturday Jeff and I with my Dad and Stepmom went to visit my new nephew Ryan. He is so cute and tiny! Jack had fun playing with his cousin Mikayla. On the way there we stopped and toured the Yuengling brewery in Pottsville and on the way home we stopped at Cabela's. Jack loves to see the animals and fish there. It was a very busy but fun day.

Friday Night Lights

This past Friday we went to a football game in Horsham. Jack just wanted to be one of the big boys and play with them. He ran around a lot and even tried to tackle a few. Luckily they let him hold the ball a few times.
