The kids had a BLAST getting back into the routine of things today.

Day 241 - 2010

Yikes! It's been a while since I uploaded this account. Flylady is very communicative. I cna't say that I am reading her work regularly (obvioulsy) but I am still following a majority of her "leadings".

Day 240 - 2010

We decided to do our trip home in 2 days instead of the usual one. We had a good trip to White River and took our traditional photo with Winnie the Pooh. We kept going to stay overnight in Wawa.

Day 239 - 2010

Back to the beach. We got a large beach umbrella when we were in town yesterday to help with the shade for Mitchell and as long as the wind didn't blow it down the beach it was a great set-up. Again, we are loving the beach this year.

Day 238 - 2010

Add Image Happy birthday six year old! Marlee awoke to balloons in her room, a scavenger hunt leading her all around camp (even down to the waterfront) for her present from Grandma and Grandpa and then special waffles for breakfast. Later in the day our cousins came out for dinner with us. I think she really enjoyed her day.

Day 237 - 2010

Marlee chose MacDonald's for her lunch on her birthday 1 on 1 day. We shopped, ate and just enjoyed our time together. Happy birthday sweet girl! I love spending the day like this - away from distractions - just with you. And I love that you were accommodating enough to have Mitchell with us without complaint.

Day 236 - 2010

Dunes and waterways and lots of rocks to do so. It is so neat to see two kids who see each other a few days a year just pick up and play together as if time has not passed at all. It reminds me of when I used to do the same with his mother.

Day 235 - 2010

Mitchell seems to have an affection for things that are red. We didn't think to bring our highchair so we sufficed with the bumbo chair - and a number of accessories. Little did we know that cans of coke and the ketchup bottle would be all he wanted!

Day 234 - 2010

Marlee is amazing at just playing. She can find great ways to amuse herself - and it's another reminder of how much we like the beach.

Saturday, August 21, 2010

Day 233 - 2010

Marlee was really beginning to get the hang of the whole frisbee game. The three of them had a great time doing lots of 'diving'. Well, maybe not Drew so much!

Day 232 - 2010

Cierra loves nothing more then rocking it out on the beach.

Day 231 - 2010

Mitchell became VERY attached to the light saber the kids got. So much so that he screamed any time anyone tried to take it away from him (because yes -it isn't the most appropriate toy for a child of his age!)

Day 230 - 2010

I love the view of the approaching sunset through the trees.

Day 229 - 2010

With the beach the way it is, Matthew is all about the camp fire. It has become a daily obsession, that is only waylayed by the wind.

Monday, August 16, 2010

Day 228 - 2010

Mitchell is having no problem adapting to life at camp. He is such an easy-going little guy!

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Day 227 - 2010

The water is down really low this year. Normally the end of the dock is over Drew's head. It is nice for playing and for cleaning up the beach though.

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Day 226 - 2010

We held a memorial service for Aunt Elsie out at camp, with us sharing our memories of her.

Friday, August 13, 2010

Day 225 - 2010

A photo from one of our stops yesterday. We had dinner at the park beside the water before having a quick wade. The water was so peacful and warm.

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Day 224 - 2010

Off to TBay! I really like to leave the house in a clean and ready to be greeted manner.

Day 223 - 2010

Just a random POTD of Bibiti.

Day 222 - 2010

Matthew is trying hard to master the art of the head stand. I am trying to master the art of capturing it on film. Colter did it in one try.

Monday, August 9, 2010

Day 221 - 2010

Who are these people? My camera was hyjacked and taken off with Drew...

Day 220 - 2010

I actually did some scrapbooking today! Info is on flickr.

Saturday, August 7, 2010

Day 219 - 2010

Marlee helped Drew clean out and vacuum the car.

Friday, August 6, 2010

Day 218 - 2010

Colter has been continuing "camp" for the kids ever since day camp ended. They have been doing chores and activities for points and he has purchased his own prizes for them. They put on a parents program at the end of the day for me with all of the videos. He is going to make a great leader one day.

Day 217 - 2010

A typcial summer day looking out our front door.

I really love seeing our drawers with nice, clean, fresh covers and diapers. I'm loving this!

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Day 215 - 2010

Our backsplash is done. Thanks Nick!

Day 214 - 2010

Drew and Matthew finally got to work on Cierra's new dresser from IKEA.

Day 213 - 2010

Drew's cousins from New York came up for a visit and inspired a ride on the horses. Mitchell had his first ride (don't worry Drew was right there), Cierra got up and it was great to see Jan on again. Marlee opted to watch from the sidelines but did try her hand at some golf earlier on.
