Ten Things

1. On a whim a few weeks ago, I checked Mrs. Amelie’s Shutterfly share site and discovered that she had uploaded pictures from the end of the year. Here are the PK4’s enjoying their end-of-the-year luau lunch and giving Mrs. Amelie a surprise baby shower in their classroom the last week of school. Baby Louie should be here within two weeks!

2. One night after dinner and bath at Nola and Nopsi’s, we had an impromptu jam session to Maroon 5’s “Sugar” in the driveway before leaving to go home. Riley loved standing up through my sunroof and dancing to his favorite song.

3. Freshly haircut boys chillin’ with their daddy in front of a regional baseball game and Kenny and Riley upstairs in Daddy’s room playing with their toys.

4. A few pics from the ending ceremony of VBS at SCR. Riley did a great job performing; he and Claire were front and center, right next to each other. Afterwards when they got all of the kids together for a group picture, Riley didn’t want Claire to put her arm around him, so she pouted. Then he relented so she smiled again. Silly kids.

5. Pretty Claire at the Zephyrs game.

6. Riley spotted Star Wars yogurt packs at the grocery and of course made me buy one for him. He has really been enjoying “Hyperspace Berry” and “Imperial Strawberry Banana.” Marketing genius.

7. The little one drinking and driving, pillow pushing at Aunt E’s, vacuuming with his sword, and playing outside in the hose.

8. On our first full day at the beach, Kenny and I had a little fun creating things in the sand. I had the idea to draw Darth Vader and Kenny made a 3D Darth Vader and a 3D Olaf. The kids loved our masterpieces.

9. On Father’s Day morning, the boys were chasing each other around the house with their lightsabers. Rory accidentally fell into a corner of the wall in the front hall and got a big bo-bo on his head. Ouch.

10. Morning snuggles with the little one and him helping Nopsi carry Mama and Daddy’s wine out to my car.

Such a big boy.

Have a wonderful {Fourth of July} weekend, everyone!

Pensacola 2015: Wrap-Up

What a week we had at the beach. We unfortunately didn’t see any of the Blue Angels this year, and we only saw a few really pretty sunsets…..

…..but at least Kenny was only up early enough to see one sunrise.

Crazy fries slept in much later than he did last year. Woo-hoo!

On our last evening in Pensacola, we took family pictures. The three young ones cooperated decently; we scored a number of shots with everyone actually looking at the camera. But my favorite part were a series of test shots when Jeff and Erin got a little goofy. Those two crazy kids.

Then Nola wanted a picture of her kids and their families, like we did two years ago.

Lucky that Nopsi snapped the one above early on because things went downhill fast after that.

Then Aunt E, Uncle Jeff, and Kate took a little family pic. So cute, isn’t it?

Here’s our series of attempts at family pics.

Not so cute. Maybe next year my boys will do better.

The ride home on Saturday was fairly uneventful. The boys watched movies, had snacks, checked out trucks on the road, and read their books.

Riley was ecstatic to return home to his Legos, Rory instantly zoomed his big dump truck around downstairs, and Kenny and I unpacked the car and put everything away. Vacation over. Reality returned.

Until next year!
