Now its time to buy another toothbrush, go to the dentist, monitor the candy intake, pray for no cavities or braces needed...and that's just for me! : )

The rest of the visit was fun. Cody was in amazement of everything. (I love this age!) Every corner started with this phrase, " What's that?" And of course more expressive yells of "Fish! Fish! Fish!" were to be heard as we saw the great big tank that had the sharks in it. He saw a hawk, a crab and some other little things like frogs, salamanders and such.

Then, I met up with my new friend Lauren and showed her around downtown Charleston. She had never seen the sweet grass basket ladies up close. The tiniest little baskets were $10 bucks each and one really big basket was $750.00! (We didn't buy any if you are wondering!)
Seeing all of the beautiful sights made me realize that I need to go downtown more often. We went all over and took some cool photos. Here are some pictures from the rooftop over Grill 225 and the Rooftop at Vendue Inn.
We then went to Waterfront Park and walked out to the end of the pier. We saw a cargo ship coming into the harbor and got a good shot of a seagull and lots of poop!
Here is one of Lauren at the fountain...she wouldn't run through the water though.
The Southeastern Wildlife Expo is going on this weekend, so we got a chance to see some cool animals in Marion Square....
...the alligator ate Lauren at the end....so sad!

Good idea right? Nope. He hated it! He clung onto me so tight and didn't want to look at or touch anything. The fireman was so nice and even gave Cody a Junior Firefighter sticker and a plastic hat (which he refused to wear). He said that it is common for kids to freak out a little when they see them up close like that.
Well, even though Cody didn't like it, Clay & I enjoyed the tour of the big fancy trucks. I loved it! Cody just didn't appreciate it at all. Abby was just happy to be there but didn't really seem too interested in anything. Oh well, maybe we will try it again on another day.
To finish off the week, we spent some time with our friends and Cody got to play with "Kenzie". Here are a couple of pictures from dinner. She is so beautiful! I can't believe how big she is getting. At least we can say that Cody likes hanging out with "Kenzie" better than fire trucks.

I thought that the amount of time and energy I have been investing into this blog was more than I could manage to squeeze into a week, but now I have been introduced to yet another way to waste huge amounts of time in order to be electronically connected to more people who I rarely would ever speak to in person. It goes by the name of:
Haven't heard of it? Oh it should be called "crack book"...because it is totally addicting! You start off by trying to build up "friends" who also have facebook pages (I guess that's what they are called).
Need friends? No problem. Simply look up names of people you know.
Can't think of names right off hand? No problem. Type in any place you have ever lived, went to school, worked at, been to, thought about going to or know someone who has ever lived there, worked there or knew someone else who might have been there...(get my drift?).
Then you get huge lists of "facebookers" (my made-up word that is equivalent to being a "blogger"). Don't see anyone there you would want to invite as your friend? No problem. Just click and look at all of their friends. See someone on their friend list that you would want as your friend? Just click and invite them. Before you know it you have lots and lots of new friends.
Everybody likes to have friends, but how many friends do you really need? That's when the addiction kicks in. You think..."Man, I only have 4 friends right now. I bet I can think of some more people I know." So you end up looking up anyone who has attended your high school 10 years before and after you trying to figure out if you have ever heard of any of them.
Ah, you found one! But do you think they would want to be your friend even if you haven't spoken to them in 15+ years? Hmmm...who cares! I NEED MORE FRIENDS!!!!!! (and the addicition is now full-blown)
By the way, if anyone wants to be my friend, just write on my wall or send me a message to my facebook and I'll gladly accept. Maybe we can be BFF or something cool like that. : )

Cody was just too cute tonight. He was walking around in his cowboy boots....I guess he thinks it makes him look cool. (and it does!) Then he found this pizza box lid in the trash and was walking around the house saying "knock, knock...there?....pizza!". By the time I got the camera, he had stopped saying it (of course), but I thought I would share it with you anyway.

It was a 1956 Olds "98 Holiday". It had 88,000 miles on it but it didn't look like it had touched the pavement. The seats had been restored (at least the leather part), I think he said the green part was original. Some of the chrome had been replaced with stainless steel. Some really neat features that it had was power windows, power antenna, a 6 way power seat and an autronic eye in the window - this automatically dim the lights when it sees an oncoming car. Being there today really makes me wish that we had a hot rod. I just love car shows!!!!!
Oh yeah, this blog was called "Cody's First Car Show". He liked it too. I think he liked the "cycles"...they had motorcycles entered too. And he liked the Corvettes - but what boy doesn't? Abby was asleep most of the time and when she woke up she didn't seem too impressed. One lady came up and was asking me how old "he" was and telling me how cute "he" was....she was saying all this while I was fixing the bow in Abby's hair. Hello, she's a girl! Oh well.
