A Little Taste of Walt Disney

Well, the past 4 weeks has been pretty poor for the ole' Harughty clan.  I got the first stomach bug, Hank got the next 2, Derric got the 4th one, and Hank got the last one.... So we thought we were on the clear, so excited to jump back into small group, Hank was missing out on MDO and momma hadn't worked hardly at all, until we got the dreaful fever Hank spiked during out Christmas photo shoot Wednesday night.  We went back to the doctor and he now has what they think.... is RSV!  Oh my, my, my! So, Cars 2 was on the news that they were going to be in town for a couple of hours and it was outdoors!   So, I asked Hank's doctor if I could take him.  He said as long as it wasn't touching other kids, or playing on toys others would touch he was able to go.  I was so excited he was actually going to do something fun!   So we went and saw them, got a big bag full of Cars goodies it was great!  Since we can't exactly afford Disney just yet, this will have to do!

This was Mack!  Lightning, Mater, and Finn McMissile were stationed in here until the event started.  The online time was wrong so we were there way too early.  It wasn't bad because we had a bite to eat, walked around the park, chased bubbles, and even got to chase a few new friends, but we did not touch a thing, we will have to come back another time when he can play on the playground.

The playground, we will play on next time!
Stretching our legs!

And for the finale......

 CA-CHOW!! Lightning McQueen

Mr. Tow-Mater himself...

We had to wait in about an hour line to get close enough to have our picture taken with the CARS.

This event was put on by State Farm so here are the pictures I got off their website of me and Hank.

This was so cool, I wish we had a Disneyworld closer to us. Hanks just loved it, so glad we went.

Zoo Boo and Two!

On Taylor's 2nd Birthday we were invited to go with the Machann girls to Zoo Boo!
The kids had so much finding the animals and making all the sounds, we had a great lunch in a cafe, right outside an outside giraffe habitat.  It was a great day.

Picking their special pumpkin at the Pumpkin Patch

It's a hat for Taylor!

Not two silly boy, just one.

Everytime we heard life light Hank was excited to see the helicopter.

The Zoo Train

Hank's very favorite part was riding the choo choo train.
He didn't talk much just soaking up every single second.

We will ALWAYS remember the sick children at the hospital when we visit the Zoo and pray for them while we are there.  Every time I hear the life light I pray silently for the family who has just been notified that their child is needing transportation. I get a knot in my throat every time I think of the time we were told in the hospital that Hank was going to be transported and it sends chills up by spine. 
What a wonderful way to spend a fun day at the zoo, but not forget how we got to this point, and the overflowing blessings we were given.  What an amazing place we live in to be so close to such talented doctors and nurses.  Praise be to God most high! 

We ended Taylor's birthday with a trip to Build-A-Bear with a few friends and dinner at Red Robin...YUMMMMMM!  Also, Colten joined us and then came over for the evening, he was so excited to play with Hank's toys it was really cute, we love him so very much.  It was an all around great day.

 Hank decided to get a Longhorn, Derric likes to call it a BULL and Hank named it Moo!

Colten was set on getting a DQ Blizzard Bear, I tried to sway him but he was not budging, haha!

Colten showed him the ropes on his bear he named "cheet-o" he gave him a bath and got him all ready for purchasing, it was so much fun to see the kiddos so excited about animals.
