Vacation - Part 4

I'll try to wrap up the vacation pics in this post...but don't despair, we have another trip soon!  According to Owen, we are going to 'The York'.

Owen asked while we were on vacation why didn't we have 'ponky' trees at home.  This was in reference to palm trees.

We rode the carousel.  We got these pics and then Anderson saw a frog that he had to ride, so he moved.  Then because Anderson moved, Owen had to move.

Anderson wasn't so sure about riding once we started moving.  I love his poor face here.
Owen is into jumping these days...I mean really into jumping.  We thought this jump thing would be a good fit for him.

Vacation - Part 3

What's a trip to the beach without mini-golf? It's a good thing the kids were free...hahaha! It was pretty much an epic fail. I think it would have gone better had it not been 2000 was hot!
Anderson got a hole in one on the first hole and pretty much lost interest on the 2nd hole. Owen hung in there a few more holes and then decided he was melting. They both enjoyed the arcade though (aah, air conditioning!)

Big brother messing with little brother.

The course was selected because of the pirate ship.

Vacation - Part 2

We took a walk on the pier. The kids got to see a few small fishies.

Family pic...hahaha!

Our vacation was wonderful! What a wonderful time we had as a family to reconnect and relax!

I took lots of pictures and it is hard to narrow down my favorites. This post just has actual beach pictures. Will do another post or posts with other pics from the week.

Owen had a blast! Anderson had a love/hate relationship with the sand.

Bed Buddies

My sister's oldest kids often sleep together and I have been excited for the day my kids would...I think it is just too sweet. Well, that day arrived and I was thinking about the adorable pictures I'd get once they were sound asleep. I snuck into Owen's room and took a picture. I came downstairs to ooh and aah at the cuteness. And, this is what I got.

Bummer...looks like there is only 1 kid, right!

So, I waited a little bit and headed back up. Not quite a success, but not a total least there is clearly an extra set of arms in this picture.

Yes, Anderson almost always sleeps with his blanket over his head.

They slept great that night, and wanted to sleep in Owen's bed again the night after, but after nearly an hour of giggling, Anderson was sent to his bed and they have remained separated. :(

We attempted a 4th of July fireworks show for the first time this year. Anderson seems to have sensitive ears, so we were concerned how he'd react. He was completely fine with the noise. But, they were so tired from spending the afternoon swimming that they were both nearly asleep by the time the fireworks started. We didn't stay very long and Owen fell asleep in the car on the way home...he never sleeps in the car!

We were prepared with ear protection, but didn't need it. They still had fun wearing it.
