Earlier this summer we had our annual beach trip with my Dad's family. It is the greatest trip and we look forward to beach time and relaxing all winter long. Somehow the notion that the trip is coming makes our long winter a bit more palatable.
Lots of pictures to tell our story of our beach time.
The three musketeers.
My son, my dad, and my grandma.
Memorial Day Donut Eating.
Little Man Jack was so tired he slept on Uncle Jacob though dinner time.
Hannah successfully completed her first year of dance. She participated in a ballet and a tap number for the recital and make us all very proud. Big brother even got her flowers which she might have even liked more than participating in the recital.
Trying to stay calm before the recital. We were there a good hour before it started.
I fed her healthy snacks and tried to keep her from getting too wound up and excited.
This sweet boy had a birthday last month and now he is TWO!
He is also "too"...
"i'm hungry too"
"need a bandaid too"
"go bathroom too"
Just pick something - he idolizes big brother and sister wanting to be just like them.
Needless to say his birthday stemmed from big brothers love of spiderman and big sisters love of My Little Pony. He was insistent upon having a Spiderman/My pony birthday.
We had a fun relaxing morning at home with breakfast donuts and balloons.
Then headed to Georgetown to ride the Loop Railroad.
When we asked Caleb what he wanted for his birthday dinner he told us Candy. We asked what else he said "M&M"s. Then he said Lollipops. So we decided to give the kid corn dogs for dinner.
(Yuck and Don't judge me)
His whole meal was served on sticks/toothpicks like lollipops.
We had a fun time celebrating our big boy 2 year old! He loved opening cards and presents! He even got a My Little Pony castle and Loads of My little ponies. He also got a fierce dragon that eats the ponies!
Dad and C wearing his new SUPERHERO cape!
Checking out the cake...
Love this kid...
As he would say -
We love him "So, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so...BIG!"
This is from Mother's Day this year. Coffee in bed, church with my family, play-time at the park and frozen yogurt - It was a Fabulous day! I am so blessed by these cute little kiddos and a thoughtful husband! Not just on Mothers day but every day!

Jack's favorite movie is All About Airplanes. It is a half hour kids documentary about...Airplanes, of course! You too can find and view it on Netflix if you so desire. Ever since Jack's 3rd birthday he has been talking about his grand plans for his 4 year old Airplane Birthday. So we made it happen.
Jack was thrilled Nana and Papa were here for his birthday. He also loved the plane set they gave him.
This is the airplane runway board that Mark and I made Jack for his birthday!
