We were so excited to get to go to the beach for a week to celebrate Riri’s birthday, and to get some time with family. The week was full of the pool, playing in the sand, eating at some fun restaurants, and a visit from our Orlando cousins at the end of the week. It was a great week!
It’s been a fun few weeks around here, as we have enjoyed the adventures of summer and the joys of our growing boys. The past few weeks I feel like I can sum up with this picture:
Whether we are home, at park, friends house, or traveling, it seems like it’s been a summer filled with bathing suits (or just underwear) and water play. We started swim lessons with the boys, which have been really fun. And almost every day, we are in bathing suits, sometimes twice a day. The boys have spent a lot of time playing with the hose, and just enjoying themselves in these buckets. They are at really fun ages right now, and are full of life and energy.
Other events that have happened included a super fun visit with cousins. The boys could not handle the excitement and must have asked a million times if it was the day their cousins would arrive at our house. We had a great time, and loved having some of our family from Georgia come down south to visit.
We had our washer break, and were so thankful for our sweet neighbors who let us do laundry at their house for a few days. It’s amazing how much laundry we do with just the 5 of us, and how quickly it builds up! I think the boys must change their clothes at least 2 times a day, sometimes 3. Chaz seems to constantly be changing his clothes! So, this is how we made it through a few days, going back and forth across the street with my little laundry helpers:
Then, we spent the last week doing separate trips. Andy spent a week in Tennessee with high schoolers. He was the speaker for a camp for a week, and although I wasn’t there, I am sure he did an awesome job. The boys and I loaded up and headed for a beach vacation for the week with my parents and sister. We had such a fun time! The boys loved all the time with Riri and the weekend we got with Pop and their Aunt L. More pictures of the beach trip to come next…
