First trip to Jelly Belly!

Ethan, Lincoln and I all came to the Jelly Belly today for the first time ever! Yes, Me too! I've never been, even as a child! Crazy eh?
 Ethan was fairly excited, and yes, Lincoln, that's you in the stroller!
 Here's the whole crew.
 And a little closer up.

Get your Pizza!

Order Up!
 I love how he holds it the "right way."

 Hey, don't take my picture! Ethan lately is going through a phase where he has to hide in all pictures.
 We can compromise. I'll close my eyes.
Service with a smile.

Father's Day Ties 2010

This year for Father's Day I made matching ties for our little fam. I finally got around to documenting Them all together wearing them. And now I have realized we might never have a good family photo. Here Lincoln is ready and smiling, Daddy is not focused on the camera, and Ethan is still, ahem, getting ready.
Chubba Bubba! Ethan was out running some wiggles out while this gem happened.
Lincoln, Look at mommy! Ethan, you look a little too mischievous...
My three boys. It doesn't get better than this!

The Slip N' Fall

I had a steal of a deal at Target this year and got this Slip N' Slide for 2 bucks! We have had so much fun on this little baby. Ethan only refers to it as the "Slip N' Fall." He might be right.

 "Again, Mommy!"

 Sometimes we let you out of your seat Lincoln, sometimes.
Don't you just love summer?

Boating Again!

Lincoln is such the little trooper. If it's naptime, IT IS naptime!
 If there's water, John has his fishing pole. End of story.
 Excellent food. New friends!
 Excellent Smile!
 I might be saying "hello" or "hang loose" or giving John "the bird" for taking a picture of me without my swim shorts on. You just never know.

 First tube ride!
 Slow down! Oh no, that's not Ethan. Just a nice little picture of husband and wife. We'll send you our chiropractor bill Chris!
 We love boating!

Another trip to the "aminals" July 2010

Today we tried out a few new things with the Rossi's. We played tug-of-war with the elephant and were THIS close to beating that elephant!

Then Ethan and I fed the elephant these little pellets, probably the size of a peanut. I'm pretty sure the elephant was rolling it's eyes. "Do you really think this is going to fill me up? I eat 2 tons of grass everyday. puh-lease."

We NEVER miss a ride on Thomas.
Lincoln was chilling in the stroller for a good part of the day, but we didn't forget to take your picture!
Ethan isn't usually a fan of swings, but he was enjoying this one.
Lincoln enjoyed it too! (And in case you don't remember, this is the shirt that John wore as a baby, now both of my little boys get to wear it!)
He is already so handsome.
Don't jump!
Such a big boy...
This is called "chillaxing."
No girls in the bedroom buddy, nice try.
Ethan has learned to even navigate these bad boys up and down.
My little conductor.
We saw the seal show the first time this season and it's exactly the same script that I saw as a child. Really?

5th of July

Wow you're really getting a play-by-play of our crazy lives this weekend! Usually the 4th of July comes and goes with minimal fanfare, so I'm just happy we were super busy this weekend. I think one of the highlights this weekend was going boating on the 5th. NO ONE was on the water. We got there first thing in the morning and guess what? We ran into other Mormons at the island. They actually were good family friends of mine growing up (the MacDonald's, in case you were wondering), and it was so good catching up with them!
This weekend we also ended up selling our boat (since we hadn't used it in 2 years!) and it actually ended up being nice to only have one boat. Since we usually go boating with our friends, the Rossi's it was fun to go with just one boat and actually get to SEE the Rossi's when we go boating.
Ethan and I spent some nice times on the beach just playing with whatever we could find.
Ethan completely wore himself out and when I bundled him up in a towel to dry off, this is what happened.
Ethan did get to spend some time on the boat, but he was very unsure if this was something he wanted to do.
But at least he was willing to fake it for the camera.
John and I both got some good rides on the tube too!
