Big finish to a great weekend

This was a great weekend.  The weather was awesome, nothing to do but hang around the house.  Today the entire family spread 40 bails of pine straw.  (Creighton watched).  We filled the sandbox up with sand and had another run with the sprinkler.

Tonight we finished it off with a low country boil with The Greens.  Good food and good company.  Good times were had by all.

Ghetto Sprinkler…Summer Fun

Yesterday was a great day in the yard.  The kids had a blast with the water hose.  Notice how I jammed it into the ground.  Nice huh.

Time is Flying.

We have more to blog about than ever before but, because of that, we have less time to blog than ever before. Go figure.

Josh went to Spain. I’m only a little bitter.

Creighton got moved up to the big tub. Bath time is a whole new adventure.

He also started to crawl. . .

and stand up (excuse the baby barricade). . .

he has five teeth now . . .

and got a visit from his Mimi.

And oh, my Charlotte. She is going to be a star.

A dramatic finale, n’est-ce pas?

As for my oldest child, we just got her registered for Kindergarten. Kindergarten!

She looks so old in this picture.

That’s all for now.

Enjoy!

Zoo Trip

We’ve been a little slack lately, so please bear with the retroactive posts. I’m a little slow moving for the time being 🙂

A couple of weekends ago we enjoyed a little good weather at the zoo. We fought some unbelievable school field trip crowds and still managed to see all the animals.

The girls were far more interested in the Jell-O and the train ride.

It was a great day. Can’t wait to go back!

Homemade Ice Cream

Yesterday Katie made a batch of homemade strawberry ice cream.  The best part was obviously the clean up.  It’s fun to be a kid.

First off the new camera.

So tonight we decided to have a picnic in the backyard. It was fun…. and I got to try out the new camera. Here are a few of the pics.
