We had the most ridiculously fun few days a s a family and I have an equally ridiculous number of pictures to post. I figured that I'd make up for my lack of blogging by posting close to 100 pictures. hahaha
Dave took some time off from work this past week and we decided to take an impromptu little trip as a family. Our next door neighbors (and parents of one of my besties, Manda), graciously offered up their GORGEOUS lake house and so we packed up and headed East.
Both my boys seem to have inherited my "rosy cheeks". From the time I was little, whenever I get hot my cheeks turn RED. Like, red red. People would stop me and ask me if I was okay, tell me to sit out in outdoor activities and offer me water :) Apparently my boys will get the same treatment because seriously... look at these red cheeks:
The boys took the golf cart out for a spin around the neighborhood and got caught in an absolute DOWNPOUR!
After dinner it was bath time and we decided that this would be as good a time as any to put all three kids in the tub together :)
After baths we had some super sleepy boys on our hands:
Thursday morning we enjoyed breakfast...
... and I tried to take a couple of pics before we headed out :)
Just in case you were wondering what I look like early in the morning. hahaha. Look at the cute baby :)
We found a park where the boys could swim and they had a BLAST splashing, looking for shells and throwing rocks :)
Mason is stronger than he looks :)
... Mason not so much.
It's hard being two :)
Mason perked up a bit when we told him he could go outside and play :)
He was very concerned about the giraffe getting a drink...
Luke spent his time gathering pinecones...
Someone explain to me how he can do this and it's FUN in the pool, but the minute water comes close to touching his eyes in the bathtub its drama?!?!?!
Griffin and I went inside for a bit to get dinner ready, but I couldn't resist taking a few more pictures of my cooperative little girl :)
And Griffin and I had some talk time :)
... and then we did some sparklers :)
Friday morning it was time to fish!
Luke and Haha caught a catfish!!!
Mason had to touch it as well :)
After fishing we were going to go swim again, but the rain put a damper on our plans so the boys went to this vets office who sells exotic animals. They saw kangaroos, zebras...
We had the best few days together as a family. So much fun and lots of memories made. It was a little getaway, but it was our first as a family of five and we're definitely counting it a success.
Blurry, but oh well :)
Mason cried for "MY HAHA" for the first 10 minutes of our trip home, but after that he was pretty much like this the rest of the way.
