Fun in the Sun at Wild Rivers

Today we went to Wild Rivers in Irvine, CA thanks to a raffle Kevin won at work! It was a great way to kick off our summer family fun. Since Kevin had taken a few days off we thought it would be the perfect time to go. Since our kids are such "fishes" and love the water, we knew it would be a great day. This was their second water park since they've been born. We took them to Knotts Soak City in San Diego last year.

We woke up, got ready, packed up the car and the kids and made our way over to Irvine. The weather was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. It was great because it wasn't too crowded.

We found a perfect spot in front of the kiddie area of the park. Kameron didn't hesitate. He tried to take off into the pool before I even finished putting sunblock on him. Konnor had no fear and daunted around on his own. He went down all the slides by himself. Great thing is that there is miniature slides of all the adult slides in the water park. As a family we enjoyed the Lazy River....over and over again. Kameron almost took a nap on it.

Kameron is 18 Months!

Wow...already? Really? I find it hard to remember that he is only 18 months. The fact that he is such a big boy, I already think he's TWO! So he's in the 97th percentile for his age in height/weight/head! Yes, he has a big head. He weighs just 4oz less than his Big Brother Konnor! They even share clothes now! He is finally sleeping in his bed by himself and sleeping better through the night. He still has some issues waking up looking for "mommy" and sometimes having nightmares and crying in the middle of the night. But we've really made some progress. I thought he'd never sleep in his own bedroom and through the night.

He's become a real "copycat". We always have to remind Konnor that his brother watches everything he does. So we frequently say, "Monkey See, Monkey Do". Speaking of copycat...Kameron has taken interest in going to the potty like Konnor does. He hasn't been consistent, but has shown great interest and has since graduated to "Pull-Ups".

He's still an eater. He has his picky days, but is willing to try almost anything. His favorite foods are pizza, rice, chicken nuggets and french fries, grilled cheese, mac & cheese and several filipino foods. The boy even eats sushi every now and then.

Kameron LOVE Elmo and Blues Clues still and pretty much every other show and character that Konnor likes. He loves to sing, dance, read books and play pretend. I'm happy to have two musically inclined kids!!!

Although we've had a rough time weaning him from the bottle, we've finally come to the day where he would throw his own bottle away! YAY!!! I assumed it would be so easy as it was with Konnor.
