Beach 2

Tuesday, the day that the tropical storm was supposed to 'hit', well, it was beautiful!!!  We were able to enjoy the beach and water!!

Here are some out takes from our little beach pic.  Robert kept snapping and I thought they were funny!!

Little squirt tried to run off on me ;)

Beach Day 1: Debby No Downer!

We headed to the beach knowing there was some "weather" going on.  Tropical Storm, potential hurricane....could be nothing...who knows. 

But we loaded up and prayed that the weather would go away and we would have our perfect beach weather back!!

Sunday when we drove in, it was raining.  But Monday morning, it was just overcast, NO rain, and the sun would peek out when it could.

It was nice enough to swim.  Being ON the beach was a little rough...with wind gusts up to 25+ mph, the sand would kick up and pelt us like tiny little bullets!!

Needless to say, we spent most of our day at the pool.  :)

A little pool deck baseball as well!

Rhodes playing pitcher!

Robert headed to the store the and bought some good classic games.  Battleship, dominoes, BINGO!!

So it was bingo night!!

No weather was going to put us out!!  So glad we "gambled" and still came.  Because we woke up Tuesday morning to PERFECT weather!!  Not a cloud in the sky and perfect temps!!!

Lillian Turns 5!!

I get an "F" on blogging right now.  But how can I pass up this milestone!!

My little princess Lillian turned FIVE!!  We had a park party with pizza and cake and the weather couldn't have been more perfect!  Even some of her school buddies were able to make it.

I think I also get and "F" at taking pictures at the party.  :(  I'll get back into it soon.  We head to the beach in a few days and we all know how many pics I take THERE!!  Ha!

For some reason she froze up while we were singing to her...typical Lillian style.  ;)

But you could tell she was smiling!!

Fordy came...he turns 9 months on Sunday!!!  He's crawling and babbling like crazy!

He got dissed by one of his girl cousins.....

Three of her school buddies!!  Her class was so small this year!  2 of them couldn't make it. :(

Cousins....a mess I tell ya.  A mess!

Cannot believe my "baby" is 5!  She is our little princess and we love her so much!!!!

First Lake Weekend

The other weekend we headed on down to the lake to hang with my WHOLE fam on my mom's side. We won't be down as much as we like this summer because my parents are re building their house to accommodate our growing family.  With Lacey's fam and my brother's future fam, the little cabin just couldn't hold us all.  But soon there will be just enough room for everyone!!  But we will have to wait until next summer to enjoy the new cabin!!

BUT, luckily, my grandfather has a house right next door that we all crammed into.  So we were still able to enjoy the lake!!

Rhodes driving on our sunset cruise...

Lovey skiing!!!

She's def still got it!!!!

Rhodes tubing.  While this wasn't his first time to tube, it was his first to tube without an adult. :)

Of course there was a lot of this going on too.  Can't let the boys go down to the lake and not catch some air.  Guess it's like riding a bike...'cause Robert seem to pick up right where he left of in August.

Showoffs....  :)

This little guy wasn't feeling well.  He was fussy and wouldn't sleep.  My poor sister...I remember how stressful it is when you have a baby in a full house that is restless.

Turns out he had a viral throat infection and a small hairline fracture on his arm.  We noticed he wasn't using his arm, though it was nursemaids elbow or just sore, but turns out he needed a cast for a couple weeks.

He is back to being his cute little self!!

We are chock full of Vacation Bible Schools and summer reading programs!!  It's been very mild here (for June) and so nice!!  Very much enjoying the first part of our summer!!
