Water Babies

My kids love being in the pool anytime they can no matter how cold the water is they think it is the best thing and the only time they are not in the water is for meals and naps.

Art with Chalk

Gracie loves to draw.  Very often during nap time I find myself being asked to draw all sorts of things on the side walk.  Some things are easy and others are just not on my creative wheel.  But Gracie and I were pretty proud of our butterfly family that we design.

About Nolan

just a couple of pictures I wanted to share....

After nap on day I went to get Nolan out of bed and I found him completely naked.  He looked so cute I couldn't help but take a picture.  I am hoping this does not happen again....

I have twin brothers that are 12 years younger than I am.  When we were growing up we always knew when Dad was on his way home because his car was so loud.  The twins would go outside and stand on the fence and wait for daddy to pull in.  Every time I see Nolan stand on the fence I think of that image and those pictures.  Now he is not looking for a car but he is talking to the neighbors all the time.

About Gracie

Enjoy the pictures below...

Gracie loves taking pictures on my phone anytime she gets a chance.

I don't think we will be getting this one back
so sad!

funny faces is what I get offer the most when asking to take a picture

One day in May the kids and I had to pick-up Nina from work.  Nina is the sales manager and a wedding dress store in Cincinnati.  We go to look at all the dress and Gracie was in love of all the sparkles everywhere.  When I turned around one of the co-workers had put a val on Gracie's head.  It was cute but way to early for the image.

Hot Rod

Yes, I have already mentioned how much Nolan loves Gracie's bike but it may also be time for some cool shades.  He is always asking to put sunglass on him.  He just thinks he is too cool and the combination of the sunglasses and the wishing for a bike just seems so funny to me.

The Doc is In!

I mention earlier how Gracie loves playing doctor.  A while back we took a trip to old navy and Gracie found this cute little turtle that was $2 because it was torn.  Gracie and I were excited to take this little friend home and fix her up.

 Before we left Gracie asked if I would take a picture of 
her with this family some said it looks like a where's waldo page.

since I have also had to sew back on a leg 
due to a tug-a-war time between Gracie & Nolan

Fun with Friends

We have got lots of time to hang out with friends and it has been fun.  Well, sometimes it is a little weird to think that is one of my friends kids and not they all play together.  It has been just hilarious to see how  much the love playing.

3 families
3 moms and 6 kids

Who doesn't like playing with bubbles?  While Nina cleaned off the back porch the kids got to play in the bubble water which was just a little fun activity.
