The Beach- Our trip

You thought that was the whole trip, didn't you? Fools. That was only the first half-HA! However, I don't think that I'll post nearly as much of the last few days as the first few. So off we go...


Jojy thought the sand part was great. Gettin' dirty with parental enthusiasm- a small boy's dream.
We always take a small tent to the beach to keep sand and sun off the baby- it also served as a perfect place for Jojy to nap when he couldn't keep his eyes open anymore.
He was cautious and timid around the water, and the second he got his confidence- BAM- he turfs it in the surf. As any good parent should, I laughed and took a picture.



This is easily one of my favorite photos from the entire trip. I LOVE THIS. That's all I can say.

Gabey didn't love the tent, but it was okay as long as he could see us. I forgot to bring toys for him this day, so like any good parent, I dug to the bottom of the bag and found a bottle of Tylenol and a tampon for him to play with.


Jeff turned my son into a mermaid. At least he's a tough mermaid. :-)

Tylonol and a tampon? That is awesome! My cat loves to play with tampons, when we do heavy vacuuming we will move the couches and often find chewed up tampons with the wrapper shredded into fun little cat toys. Tampons always allow for good times!

I know that Jujy loves tampons...and she used to love Tylenol bottles but then she realized that there was something in there and she gets pissed when you don't give her some medicine....little idiot. And your boys are the freakin cutest! I love all the pictures you take. Love you.

So my day is now happy because I FINALLY got to see all the pics from your trip--and NO I don't get sick of them--bring 'em on! You have such an adorable family and I find comfort in knowing that I'm not the only one in world to find random things in my purse for my kids to play with:) I really have missed you, and getting to see all the fun you had made me feel a littel better:) Thanks!

I think you need to feed that mermaid. He looks like a shrunk-wrapped skeleton.
Is he flexing or asking, "when's dinner"?

Oh I laughed so hard on the Tylonol and Tampon part, I have so been there! Your the best!

Michelle,

I hope you remember us. I used to work with Laura and you used to watch my Addison when she was very small. She is not so small anymore! It blows me away to see that you have 4 boys. You only had your oldest the last time I saw you. I got your blog from Treasure's blog, it is such a small world. All of your boys are so handsome. It is good to see you! Does Laura have a blog? I have not talked to her forever.

Everytime I biff it my mom takes a pictures. Too bad she didn't post them on the internet for all to see. I'm jealous you touched water. I'd kill to touch anything but snow. Grrr.
