A day at the park

We have a lot of little parks around us so we like to take Tyler when we can. This weekend we were able to go bike riding a lot and then we stopped at some parks. Tyler's favorite is the slide, he will go down as long as we let him! He just loves when his daddy is there, he is Chad's little man!

Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving. Tyler and I slept in while Chad went surfing and then we went and met him at the beach. We played around on the beach for awhile before coming home and Tyler took a nap. We then headed to Chad's grandparents house for a feast! Grandma made turkey, ham, macaroni & cheese, two different kinds of potatoes, 3 vegetable dishes, 3 different kinds of salad, 3 pies and so much more. Chad's parents, an aunt, an uncle and two cousins were there. Tyler had a great time picking oranges off great grandpa's tree and visiting with all of great grandma's parrots (I think she has 5 or six!). After that we stopped by Mark & Susan's and said hi and then took an exhausted Tyler home (where of course he ate more!). Here are some pics!

And it begins.

Morning sickness that is. Now, I haven't yet thrown up (I know, TMI) but I feel like I am a car that is winding down a hill and in circles and I can't get out. It is a horrible horrible feeling. That being said, as Abby and I were talking about, it is just a reminder of the wonderful life we are growing inside of us and is all worth it in the end. I was just so hoping that this baby didn't follow in Tyler's footsteps and let me get away with no morning sickness! The problem today was trying to find any food to eat that didn't make me want to puke. Settled on a banana, apple and popcorn. Good thing for vitamins!!

Working

So I went back to work. Well, not really but kind of. I activated myself on the substitute list when a teacher I used to work with was begging me to cover for her for three days. So I worked Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I really enjoyed it and realized I miss being in the classroom! That being said, I would never ever change this opportunity to stay at home with Tyler. My mother in law was able to help watch Tyler as was one of Chad's old students who is now going to school to be a preschool teacher. I think I will continue to substitute on occasion (maybe once a week) to make some extra money. Anyway, here are some pics from this week!

Baby Kavanagh #2 is due to arrive on July 19, 2008!

New camera

So for an early birthday present for Chad we got a new waterproof camera. It goes up to ten feet under water and supposedly you can drop it from 5 feet or so and it is fine (although Chad won't let me test this theory). When I bought it they tried to sell me insurance in case it got water damage or I dropped it. Hmmm...since those are supposed to be the specs of the camera I think I will pass! Anyway, Chad and Tyler had some fun in the shower testing out the new camera!

Halloween

We had a great time on Halloween. In the morning Tyler and I went up to Chad's school, Robin's work and my old school where I taught. He had a lot of fun and got waaayyy too much candy! In the evening when Chad was done we went to a little carnival at YMCA's Camp Surf then went trick or treating at a couple of our friend's houses. By 7:15 he was tuckered out and ready for bed. He had a lot of fun and has no fear of people in costumes or masks! We got one lone trick or treater at our house so we have too much left over candy! Time to unload it on Chad's students :)
