Summer Fun!

Okay, so it's been awhile, but I am alive and the baby is still kicking inside. I am currently 34 1/2 weeks - but if things go like my other two, I could have this baby in about 3 weeks...my fingers are crossed). I'm again overwhelmed with the blogging that I want to do. So here's a revised versions of some of the things we've done this summer. I'll try to stay on top of things better. Thanks for the concern all you wonderful friends out there! :) Or at least the annoyance with my not writing :)



I love this picture! We went to San Diego with my friend Charise and her family over Memorial Day weekend. On our way home we stopped at the San Diego Temple. This picture shows the tender joys of being an Eternal Family is we're good! This one also does - minus Brinley's grumpy face. They were tired after a long weekend of playing with no naps. But it's still a cute picture.
This is a much better picture of Brinley. Marc had these waffle blocks when he was a kid and I guess now as a big kid. We currently have 3 sets so that he (I mean the kids:) can play more creatively and build bigger. The kids also love the juice drinks - they also get that from their dad.
Braden LOVES WATERMELON! Marc chapperoned a youth dance and came home with this whole container full of watermelon. We knew we couldn't finish it before it went bad, so we let Braden have free reign. He was in heaven with all the "triangles." He also started in with "all mine." He would share the triangles (missing one corner) with Brinley. Luckily she didn't seem to notice or mind.
Okay since you have all seen the pictures of Brinley with her blanket fettish, here's her new thing. It cracks me up, I keep laughing out loud just looking at the pictures again. She gets herself and her babies all situated for anything. We for sure love the dish towel under the Minnie Mouse hat, with the skirt around her neck and you can't tell but that's a dish towel tucked in her back as a cape. And of course she always puts on her church shoes too. She's such a crack up with her phases. I'll try to keep you all posted as she goes through each one. Luckily there's been no battle to go in public like this yet....knock on wood! :) I"m sure you'll all see soon enough.




Okay, my friend Lisa did a very cute slide show of a little getaway we did with our mommy's group a couple of times this summer. One of our friends parents have a beach house that they let us come and stay at for a couple of days (Thanks again Charise). The kids loved playing together constantly and us moms loved just sitting and socializing. It was also during the really hot days this summer, so it's always cooler at the beach.

Love that picture of the boys at the temple, so sweet. Brinley cracks me up too. Maybe you should get her a cape like I got Gwenie, I bet she would wear it all the time.

Marc and Shay said...

You're right Darci, she probably would! She loves to dress up in anything (obviously)

You posted!!!I really love the pics at the temple. I don't think you could get a bad one, Brinley still is a cutie even if she was grumpy. Your kids are so adorable.

I am glad you posted (it is hard to keep up).
I LOVE the last photo of Brinley, she is going to hate it when she is about 13yo but then will laugh about it when she is grown up (hopefully).
