The Beach in the winter

This is how we spent our Christmas Eve day!  Not too bad, right?

4 years old

Well, unfortunately since I'm playing catch up, I only have a picture of the cake when S turned 4! He had a great party at a jumpy place! He still talks about it almost a year later!

Maybe a new tradition?

Two years in a row, this same spot, this same time! :)

She's one

Our sweet little!

She had a wonderful birthday party with a few friends at the house over the weekend, Hawaiian themed! Then on her birthday, we headed to the beach for dinner!

Mom and Dad

Us!! We enjoyed ourselves a Dolphin's game! Along with a couple friends. Fun night. Yay!!! Go Fins!!

First days

The big kids are starting their 3rd week of school this week.  Kaisley was excited to have the same kindergarten teacher that Brookston had 2 year ago! And while she doesn't "really" know anyone (siblings from Brookston's friends and a girl from a 1 week camp she went to), she's been very happy, coming home with smiles and excited about elementary school! Oh and the bus, always the highlight of the day!!

Brookston has a year of transition. He was in kindergarten and 1st grade with a lot of the same kids, so this year not having ANY of his friends in class, it was a new start. But, he is very social, so it shouldn't be long! Plus, they seemed to jump right in to the school work this year, so that is taking some getting used to. For mommy too!

Sutton started 3 year old preschool TODAY! He was really excited to be going to big boy school, where Kaisley has been the last 2 years. Kaisley's 3 year old teacher is no longer teaching, but this teacher seems just as wonderful! And he is in the organge class. Talk about a score for Sutton!!

My Little Helper

Seriously so cute!! She continued to grab clothes out of my hands and put them in the dryer for me! Thanks baby girl!

Muddy puddles

These two sure did have fun! Richard called it "bayou comes to town"! ;)

Different day...Kaisley wanted a repeat, but there wasn't enough rain to make mud. She found enough water to make herself happy though. 

Sleeping baby

Sweet baby sleeping

Flexible baby sleeping 

Funny baby sleeping

Dramatic baby sleeping

Baby shielding her eyes from the sun sleeping

Make her slow down

It's hard to believe she's already 11 months. It makes me so sad that she's growing so fast. Being our last, it makes me really sad that we won't have a tiny little baby around any more. Although watching her grow has been a blast. She's so full of life, she's so happy and hilarious! Each new phase is so fun!

The 4th

We made it to the 4th of July parade in our town this year. (Last year I was 8 months pregnant, so it wasn't even an option, lol!) We all had a good time and were able to meet up with some friends as a bonus!!

Family at the beach

We had an awesome week meeting Richard's family at the beach. Hopefully we can start an annual trip to meet somewhere. Everyone had a great time at the beach, in the pools, spending dinners at each other's condos and out exploring. 

Here's the whole crew together after a dinner!

And the 5 brothers on the beach!

The 9 kids!

Our munchkins...not what is call a successful photo shoot! But hey, it's what we got!

This one was a little better when I was just sitting on the chair hanging out. Helps that Rinley was happy because she was not happy for the other pictures. 

Grandpa with all 9 kids. 

Some entertainment between photos 

And then there was the water play at the condos....

And the amusement park...

And the pirate ship...

The before....

....and the after!!

(You'll notice a ton of new posts after this one. I was a bit behind in posting and just played catch up from a busy month of May!)

Crawfish in Florida

FINALLY!!! We've lived in Florida for a year and a half and we finally did a crawfish boil! Since I'm a little behind in posting this was almost 2 weeks ago, so we are hoping to do another one, maybe this weekend, before the season is over!

The beach

Rinley had a blast for her first beach trip!!!

And so did all the kids!! Going to the beach with friends is so much fun!!

Silly silly kids

I honestly have no idea why, but the kids ran out of graduation wearing these. Kaisley was beyond giddy! She thought it was hilarious!!

The boys got in on the fun!

And we didn't want to leave Rinley out!
