On May 23, 2009, while many were celebrating Memorial Day Weekend, we celebrated our little guy's 3rd birthday.

It was Mason's first destination birthday party and
BOY was it a WILD one!

For months he's been telling me he wanted a Diego birthday. And, what better place to have it than the Catawba Science Center. There, we discovered countless fun experiments and encountered animals of all sorts. Mason was treated to a private birthday party with his very own animal show N tell and a shark feeding too.Mason had such a great time! So glad everyone joined us in the fun!

Some WACKY WILD Stuff is going on @ Five Moms and a Blog today.
Make sure you check it out!


Most moms have an obsession of photographing their families that they rarely are ever seen coming out from behind the camera. That's why Carin @ Forever in Blue Jeans created a new challenge for all blogging mamas. It's called 52 Weeks. Every week moms will be stepping away from their cameras and sharing the spotlights with their loved ones. Looking through my photos, I discovered that it's so true. I'm missing in action in most of the shots. And really it doesn't bother me one bit. Well......maybe just a little. I would have to say that when I look at pictures of me growing up, my favorites aren't the ones of me alone. They're the ones that capture me with my family, especially my parents. So, I'm excepting the challenge.

Thanks for singing to me!! We have out grown the Shanna Show here at our house...but I remember the song VERY well! I've been wondering how my new blogger friends were saying my name in their heads. I've actually thought of an entire post I could write, all about my name! So watch for it, ha! I am totally jealous of Mason's party. I bet it was SO cool! My boys would have LOVED a party like that. I enjoy looking at all of your cake creations :0)

Three is so fun. They show what they know and want to help so much. I liked three.
I have so much video of my kids because they started singing and dancing with The Veggie Tales and all that stuff.
