off to the beach for a day of fun in the sun





a good weather day and we were off for some fun in the sand and water. we had a wonderful day splashing, packing sand, carrying buckets of water back to our castle and personal baby pool, loading and dumping sand from our john deer dump truck and excavator. what more could a family ask for? can we go back yet? logan was in complete awe of the ocean, and maybe a little shock too as the water was a little chilly. brady just wanted his dump truck and shovel. mommy and daddy well, we loved watching them play, build and splash. thanks grandpa and grandma for such a wonderful vacation. the time spent with you was priceless. the boys love you so much.

the rain finally stopped




we emerged from our room to walk along the beach and check out the pool. it was slightly windy and very chilly but the view from the rain logged sand was still calming and beautiful. who needs a swim suit to have some fun. this is like a giant bath tub and we had it all to ourselves.

shut out


i will be the first to admit that lately logan has been getting all of my attention and then some. brady left out in the cold when it comes to mommy. someday you will read this and please know that it was never intentional. your brother is rather demanding and really persistent and stubborn alas he usually wins the battle. i spent a lot of time today thinking how much i miss reading to brady. brian and i have split the kids lately when it comes to bed time. so tonight i asked brady if mommy could take him to bed and read to him and daddy would take logan to bed and rock him. brady replied, "no daddy". so i asked again, " who do you want to take you to bed, mommy or daddy?" and brady replied, "daddy". decision made, i held back the tears..... we were all on our way up to bed and i said brady come on lets go upstairs. "no mommy i don't want you i want daddy." sniff, sniff, sniff. i will just be over here in the corner crying if anyone needs me......
