Alexander Reunion Became a Ronning Reunion

Karen’s brother and sister joined us along with their families. We had a great time, but we missed all the Alexander side of the family.

The food was nice, but I was mainly watching Katie Beth. She kept me moving.

Katie Beth kept going after the carpenter bees trying to catch one and hold it.

Alexander Family Reunion

We are heading down to Karen’s family reunion for her mother’s side of the family. Katie Beth will not be the youngest baby this year.

We will be heading to Willis Chapel, which is south of Carbon Hill, Alabama.

Row, Row, Row Your Boat…

Katie Beth has taken up singing Row, Row, Row Your Boat. It is fun to hear her in the other room or in the back seat of the car while she repeats “Row, Row, Row”. She then pauses for about as long as it would take to sing the remainder of the verse and then start again.

Ah, childhood learning, it is so fun to observe.

Getting Excited about Our Disney Trip

Mickey MouseKaren is getting excited about our Walt Disney World trip. She has been looking at all the trip and planning details. She always likes to look for last minute deals

Katie Beth is going to go crazy. She will get to see Winnie the Pooh up close and personal for the first time. She just loves singing the Winnie the Pooh song.

This is a short six day trip, but it will get us ready for our long fall trip.

Another Day, Another Baseball Game

Another Day, Another Baseball GameThe Huntsville Stars are a head. The weather is holding. Katie Beth is doing well with the excitement. The crowd is thinning already in the second inning.

Dinner was good. I had a Philly Cheese Steak. Hmmm. Hmmm.

If I could just get a beer, I would be set.

Pizza at the Ballgame

Pizza at the BallgameHmmmm. Hmmm.

We had great time at the game.

Initially, Katie Beth was not a happy camper. But, I ran her around a little and let her go see the other children, which turn out to be the right thing to make her happy.

Fall’s Walt Disney World Booked

We will be heading down to Walt Disney World for the tail end of the International Food and Wine Festival at EPCOT.  This will be our longest trip to Walt Disney World for total of 12 days.  Weeee!  I think we will be getting annual passes this year while on our Spring trip.

We will be staying at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, which is our home resort.  (We are Disney Vacation Club members.  You can drop our name and you will get a better deal.  Nick Cotton is your man.)

I am looking forward to kicking back at the High Rock Springs Pool.  But, I am sure we will be going all over the place.

Our trip is still far off.  Drop us a line if you want to join us.  There is always room for more.

Leaving Work Early for Baseball

Huntsville StarsI am leaving work early today to join Karen and Katie Beth at the Huntsville Stars baseball game against the Mississippi Braves. The game starts at 10:30AM. There is nothing like a cold beer and hotdogs in the morning.

Katie Beth will be ecstatic as she loves going to baseball games. She may even get to see Homer the mascot of the Huntsville Stars.

You can get the Huntsville Stars schedule here.

I hope I see you there.
