Fun in the Sand

 We had the happy surprise of Uncle Jeff joining 
us for some playing on the beach, he even brought
a little friend for Ava.  She was thrilled.

 Helpful tip:  Apple juice and sand are not a great combo. 
Good luck getting that cup away from her though.

Great day, glad we got to enjoy it before the rain set in.  

Please send us some good weather vibes for the weekend : )

It's funny what a change of scenery can do for you.

I stay home with these kids every. single. day.

They can wear on me, I won't lie.  

But to be here, with just them, at the beach??


It's simply magical.  

We are loving every minute of it. 

As special as these last few days have been 
we are excited to have John join us today. 

I love our little family.

She never fails to make me smile,
every. single. day.

Love that girl.

Party Time

 We had a two birthday parties this weekend,
the first was Colton's Five & a Half year party.

He was born on Christmas day so this is the 
tradition, celebrating the half birthday instead.

I think it's brilliant.
 The kids had lots of fun with Silly String

 We were thrilled that Matt & Rhi got to come!
 Pinata Fun!

 We also got to hang out with Bayli all weekend, YAY!

 The birthday boy.
 Love them.
 And them.
 Oh and HER.
Could she be cuter??

Next party was Henry's, he turned 6.
 He had a pirate themed party at a glow in 
 It was really cool, also Ava's first time golfing.
 As you can imagine, she did really well, look at that 
form!  I think the club is backwards...  : )
  The place was decorated all scary, Halloween-like.
Ava loved it, Henry, not so much.

 Such a cute little birthday boy!  Love him.

The other cool thing that happened this weekend
was that I finally got to start teaching Bayli to drive...
It was SCARY but fun, we never stopped laughing.
I actually impressed myself with my patience.  

I think this might be good for both of us  : )

Great weekend!  Hope yours was good too!

Backyard Fun

 Today was too nice not to break out the pool.

 Loving the flowers right now.
 A dramatic moment.  Can't remember what was said
but Ava was not happy about it.  That lasted about 10 
 Love our friends coming over to play.

 Every time I got Norah dried off & redressed she jumped 
back in the pool.  I finally caught on and poured out the water.

 Ava kept pouring water over Norah's head.
I asked her to stop but they both couldn't stop
laughing and who wants to get in the way of that?

That's her guilty smile. : )
