This is a picture after we went on one of the water rides at Seaworld. They love the water rides, especially they love seeing me get wet. Aren't they cute!!!! These pictures were taken in 2000. Things have changed a lot but they are still the same great kids.
One of my most favorite stories is about when Mike and I were taking the kids to see Stuart Little when it came out. We thought for Family Home Evening we would go to the movies. We were excited. When we pulled into the theater and told them what we were going to see, Todd proceeded to say he wasn't going. He didn't care there was no way he was going. He had been told at school that the white cat in Stuart Little swears and he wasn't going to go to a show that the cat swears in. Well, what were we going to do now. We hadn't heard anything bad about the show and really knew that they would enjoy it, so we picked him up with him yelling at us and made him go to the movie. ( WOW, making a kid go to the movie, what awful parents)
After the movie, my kids said that they loved it and wanted to buy the movie and Todd loved it too. They said "mom, the cat didn't even swear". The truth is that the cat did swear but my kids enjoyed the movie so much that they didn't notice it at all but Mike and I were watching to find out if it did or not.
I am GLAD that I have such great kids, that teach me so much each day.
