Caught a catfish

Pretty excited at the catch-n-release pond at his elementary school fundraiser. Those were some big catfish.

The big sale

All the mommies and daddies brought their pennies today for the kindergarten mall. Each child sold rings, bracelets, coins, stickers and other treasures. Hudson's store was called The Reptile House, and he sold rubber snakes. He had lots of great customers including his adorable teacher, and he spent every dime he made at other kids' stores. It was the cutest thing I've ever seen. :)

We finished swim tryouts and then played on the playground for a few minutes. I'm so proud of my big boy.

Post parade

Fun St. Patrick's Day evening parade. Hudson cleaned up from all the dune buggies and floats. Beads, beads, beads, headband, a football and of course, a sword. 


It's not a trip to New Orleans without a stop at Cafe du Monde for beignets. As you can see by the smile and the shirt& shorts covered in powdered sugar, they were a hit.

A Stop at the Border

Spring break roadtrip to New Orleans. Neat rest stop on the Louisiana border where you can walk on a boardwalk over the bayou. Saw 2 alligators, 2 snakes, lots of turtles and an egret catching fish.

Mommy Hudson date to Blue Man Group

Hudson's first sleepover

Hudson slept over at his buddy Matthew's house last night. Matthew's mom said they ate pizza, watched a movie and are going to donuts this morning. Sounds dreamy! Aren't they cute? (Mommy and Daddy took the opportunity for date night downtown!)

Graduated Nitro 1 Swimming

Big day today as Hudson passed the test for his Nitro 1 swimming lessons. Now he moves on to Nitro 2 where he'll learn Breaststroke and Butterfly while improving his Backstroke and Freestyle. 

Hudson got really motivated to get back into lessons when he learned that one of his buddies had gotten on the Intro to Nitro Swim team. Now he's eager to be able to try out for the team too. 

Here's what Nitro 2 looks like:
