More Fun, More Cousins, More First Days

Sunday morning we left the house bright and early to drive to Chattanooga to meet Hubs' sister and her family. They live over 10 hours away, so when we heard they were going to be in TN we jumped on the chance to get to spend a few hours with them.
We met them at the TN Aquarium. We got there a little early so we waded around a bit.

AP's favorite part of the Aquarium is the butterfly garden. She REALLY wants a butterfly to land on her. But, it didn't happen for her this time.
Here are the cousins about to take on the penguins :)
and about to be eaten by a shark!
We lucked up and walked right into a diver show that had just started. It was pretty cool. The sharks swam right by the diver's heads. The said that they don't bite them because they keep them overfed and these particular sharks are not an aggressive type.
C and Big B checking things out from underneath.
The early wake up call started to wear on AP.

We had lunch at Cheeburger Cheeburger, then it was time for the cousins to make their long drive back to NC. Hubs was holding little B and AP got a little jealous. Here he is trying to hang on to them both.
We had a great visit, even if it was super short. After the cousins left we went through another part of the aquarium. Hubs said that these two alligators were in love. It appears that way!
We made it home in time to go to bed a little early because Monday morning was AP's first day of preschool!!!
She got up way earlier than she needed to. She stumbled out of her room with her clothes in her hands ready to get going to school! She was very excited. C got in on the picture taking :)C and I were already at school when Hubs left to take her to school. I talked to her on the phone while she was on her way. She told me that as soon as she did this preschool thing she was going to kindergarten! I've never met a child who wants to be older as much as she does!!
I am happy to report that she has had a great first 3 days. She had a slight run in with another little boy who was "in my face and bothering me" on the first day. But since then it has been great! Her teacher says that she has followed all directions, been pleasant, and has even napped every day. I'm very proud of my big girl.
