Labor Day Beach Trip 2014

We just got back from the beach, and we had a blast.  This is the third year in a row we've gone for Labor Day, and it didn't disappoint. We left Friday right after school, and the boys did really well. Saturday and Sunday morning, we got to the beach by 9:00 and stayed for a couple hours. Then we went to the pool, came in for lunch and long naps, and then cleaned up for supper.  We took Sam back to the pool after supper, and he loved every second of it.  This year, Sam played a little more in the sand.  He loved the waves, and all the bubbles they made.  He didn't like the salt water in his face, though.  He also kept going up to other people's areas and trying to play with their toys.  One family even had a kiddie pool set up on the beach, and he kept trying to get in. 

We had such a great time!  I can't say that it was all that relaxing with two little ones, but this phase of our lives is never relaxing.  It sure is fun, though!!

Sam shared his toys with Luke.


Sam loved all the planes and helicopters.

















Yes, that's a toilet brush in his hand. He found it one morning and was playing with it. Needless to say, we put it away.


Getting them to look at the camera is almost impossible!






And just for fun....Here are the last three Labor Day Beach pictures.

Weekend with Ci Ci

We had a wonderful weekend.  My mom drove down Friday after school, and she left this morning.  The boys loved every minute of it, and so did I.  

Sam woke up from his nap Saturday and wanted all of his animal friends in the bed with him.









They read so many books this weekend.  Sam loves books!

Sam is still obsessed with socks and shoes.  He wanted to wear these to church this morning.

So proud...even though they're on the wrong feet.




Nana came over to visit this afternoon.  She and Luke had fun.

Restful Weekend

We've all had a restful weekend, except for Sean.  He had to work all day yesterday.  My plan was to start canning tomatoes before the boys got up, but Sam woke up at 6:00, and he woke Luke up. Thankfully, Sam played well while I canned.  Luke just watched from his swing and "talked" to us. At one point, Sam took all his clothes off.  Then he crawled up on the back of the couch and watched Bobby and Genise.  I opened the window for him, and they just hollered back and forth at each other.  It was pretty funny.  Then, he put on several pairs of underwear.  That's his new thing.  He likes to put on multiple pairs at a time.  Next, he found a colander and used it as a seat. He is highly entertaining.  After Sam's nap, we spent the rest of the afternoon in Sam's pool.  He had a big time.  Now we're soaking up the last few hours of a wonderful weekend.




He shared his underwear with Luke.

Everything becomes a hat at some point.


He likes to put his finger in Luke's mouth.  We're trying to teach him about germs.
