I bought this monkey harness for Payton when she was about 14 months and she has never been crazy about it but now she loves it. I think she thinks she is walking me when she has it on and I am holding the leash. Rhea decided to buy Jayden one so I did not look like the only weird person walking my child. Jayden decided on the bear and Payton had a lot of fun walking him around.

As I am doing this post Payton is sitting beside me yelling to me, "Here you go! Ma! Here you go! Precious! Here you go!" and trying to take her out of the computer screen. Now she is crying about it so this will end the post ;(.

I usually don’t do these tags but because I love Stephanie so much and since I have nice things to say about Jonathon here goes…1. What is his name?
Jonathon Craig Wise
2. Who eats more?
Jonathon eats more at once but I am a snacker and eat a lot more frequently. Jonathon eats only 2 or 3 times a day but they are large meals and I eat at least 5 times a day. So if you added all the food together it would be pretty close.
3. Who said "I love you" first?
Jonathon said I love you first.
4. Who is taller?
Jonathon is about 3 inches taller than me but sometimes with shoes we look close in height… which drives him crazy;).
5. Who is smarter?
Well of course I am… haha… just joking! We definitely have are areas of expertise!
6. Who is more sensitive?
This is probably a tie.
7. Who does the laundry?
I usually do the laundry but Jonathon always backs me up if I need help.
8. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
I sleep on the right side of the bed… it is closer to the bathroom!
9. Who pays the bills? I do. That way I know how much money is left for shopping;).
10. Who cooks more?
I do most of the cooking.
11. What meals do you cook together?
Usually something with the grill because I am too scared to mess with it (or should I say too lazy to sit and watch the food cook)
12. Who is more stubborn?
That would definitely be me. I think Jonathon would agree with that as well.
13. Who is the first to admit they are wrong?
Because I am never wrong the answer is Jonathon.
14. Who has more siblings?
Jonathon has more. I have a sister and brother and Jonathon has two sisters and a brother.
15. Who wears the pants in the relationship?
It use to be me but I have gotten softer. We are both very fair and understanding in our relationship and try to be flexible with each other. We make most decisions together so there is not a lot of room for one to wear the pants.
16. What do you like to do together?
We have lots of things we like to do together… as long as we are together. Jonathon is my best friend and I love being with him.
17. Who eats more sweets?
Probably me but Jonathon has been into them lately… we are bad influences on each other in this area.
18. His guilty pleasures?
Watching stupid sports and looking up stupid internet sports facts.
19. How did you meet?
Jonathon and I met when I was 14 years old through a mutual friend.
20.Who asked out who first? I asked Jonathon out first.
21. Who kissed who first?
It took Jonathon 6 months to kiss me. He was so shy when we first started dating.
22. Who proposed?
Jonathon proposed to me on Valentine’s day. We went to the Melting Pot and I thought he was going to propose but after dinner and no ring I thought I was wrong until I went to his house and his roommate had candles, rose petals and sweet music playing… I was in shock. It was so sweet and overwhelming! Everything was so exciting until one of the pillows on his bed went up in flames from a candle. Luckily only the pillow was destroyed and the night was still perfect.
23. His best features?
I love so many of Jonathon’s features such as his beautiful smile, great skin, every other feature he has… he is so cute!
24. What is his greatest quality?
Jonathon has so many great qualities. He is so loving and caring. He always makes me feel so special and important. I think his greatest quality is how great of a father he is… I love seeing Payton and him together. I love my Jonathon so much!
I am tagging Katelyn and Rhea… have fun;).

Bath TimeJayden being silly and Payton telling him to stop it... Macie just wondering why her cousins are so crazy! Red Lobster I got to pick the restaurant for my birthday and I chose red lobster because they have such amazing coconut shrimp! After a delicious meal we got a cookie dessert that was out of this world! Linda, thank you so much for the wonderful trip. It is so much fun hanging out with all the girls (and Jayden). I am so lucky to have such great in-laws and especially Linda as my mother-in-law... you're the best! Love ya Linda!

The Nightmare! (stinkin dogs with leashes!)
After a really good nap in the room we got ready and headed down to the Circle for dinner and shopping. We went to this restaurant that has setting inside and outside which I thought would be great because it would be more noisy so I did not have to work as hard at keeping Payton quite... I was wrong! Along with the noise outside came the extra luxury people had of having their dogs with them and what a nightmare that was! Payton spotted a dog on a leash and went nuts! She has a new thing about putting dogs on leashes and walking them and when she saw this dog she thought it was her right to hold the leash. At first it was okay because the people with the dog were nice enough to let her pet the dog and even hold him, but that was not enough! She insisted on holding the leash and they let her do that as well and walk him. I knew it was going to get out of hand because there were tons of people in the walk way that were running into her and the dog did not appreciate getting pulled by a 2 year old. I had to grab Payton after a few minutes and take her down the street were she cried and screamed for about 10 minutes. The whole dinner I worked really hard at keeping her occupied and her back to the dog. Next time I will definitely be eating at a dog free restaurant! Besides the nightmare of the dog and the leash the food was really good and probably the best mahi mahi fish I have ever had.
After a long stressful dinner we let Payton blow off some energy in the middle of the circle. Here is my mom and Payton playing.
We found this really cool tree to take photos on. There were the most beautiful and tropical trees there. I really felt like I was on a tropical island.
The Sarasota Sunset
My mom and I just missed the sunset but from all of the people I saw on the beach I know that this will be something I will have to come back to see. My mom said that it is the most beautiful sunset... the sky was still pretty after the sun went down.
End of the night... Candy Time!
Here is my mom and Payton getting really tired. Good thing though because my mom and I went to the candy store and got homemade fudge and a caramel apple and waited for Payton to fall asleep in our room so we could get the party started;).
The sand is everything that I heard it was. It felt so cool when you sit in it and when you walk on it it's cold.
The water was crystal clear here as well. I would stand in water that came to my shoulders and still be able to see my toes.
Saying goodbye to a perfect trip.
