Liam is 5

I cannot believe my baby is 5 years old.  We celebrated his birthday at the beach this year.  He wanted to go to the zoo, so we planned a trip to the Norfolk Zoo.  We were making pancakes that morning when the power went out, so we had a surprise IHOP trip that day too!  The zoo was really nice and we loved seeing elephants, red pandas, and a baboon with a colorful behind!  

 Meadows house rule:  gum is allowed when you are 5 - Liam's birthday gum

Trick candles are not funny, mama!

We had Liam's cake made by the Lady of Cakes.  I loved being able to order it and pick it up, instead of dragging cake making stuff on vacation.  The only snafoo was that we didn't have candles.  I went to Walgreen's to look and all they had were trick candles......Liam was NOT amused!  Now we are preparing for the next milestone....kindergarten begins tomorrow.

More Pool Pictures

I love taking pictures of the family flying through the air. I have about 100 or more pictures of us in the pool from our beach vacation. I will spare you and just post these!

The Pool is Awesome!

We swam in the pool every day we were at the beach. I really love taking pictures of the kids leaping into the pool. They were learning how to do cannonballs and can openers this year! Mark was happy to model how to do them!

More pictures to come.
