A Quick Preview

Some people (Holly) have been giving me a hard time about not posting any beach pictures yet, so I decided to put a few up while Ford is asleep and work is somewhat quiet. I'm going to do a slideshow soon, but that requires editing A LOT of pictures; when you have two pregnant women with very specific demands on camera angles, it takes up a bit of time! Joseph is heading to the beach for a bachelor party tomorrow, so I should have some down time to work on it. In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite shots!

The family photo - I love how Maryn is trying to get Dede!
This pretty much sums up how Ford feels about his Papa - he thinks he hung the moon!
My two favorite boys on the beach!
We had such a wonderful time - great food, a lot of laughs, and we were actually able to relax because we had two college girls with us that were amazing babysitters! It was the perfect vacation!

Let's hit the beach!!

I was trying to get some last-minute packing done this morning (read: not paying much attention to a certain little boy) and realized things were a little too quiet! I walked into Luke's room, and this is what I found! I think somebody's ready for our vacation!!
*Kristin - this is the float I was talking about - do you want it for the summer for William? We've obviously outgrown it! Let me know!

A Fun Playdate and a Tiny Hinny

*Question: I looked up the spelling of 'hinny' and that's what I got...does it look right to you? 'Cause it sure doesn't to me!*

We had a fun day today, despite another round of ear infections! Thank you Natalie and Riley for having us over for lunch and sharing all your outdoor toys...the bone-shaped pb & j's were too cute. We'll have to do to it again after our beach trip!

Ford, Emma & Riley splashing - little Lily Kate wasn't wild about the water, so she didn't last too long in the pool!

Not much cuter than a naked long as you're talking about a small child's!

Happy Mother's Day (a little late)

Happy Belated Mother's Day to all you mommies out there! I am just now coming to the realization that I will be the mother of two in a few short months...maybe it's been denial or fear or who knows what, but baby Luke has not gotten nearly the attention his brother did! Ford is growing up way too fast - something I would be really sad about if there wasn't another right around the corner! He's saying so many new words - my favorite is turtle - and other than mealtimes, he is a happy kid. At his 18-month check-up, he was in the 10th percentile for weight, 50th for height, and 100th for sweet lollipop!
We're heading to Charleston with Papa, Dede, and the Rays on Friday for a week, so I'm sure we'll have lots of fun cousin pictures to post. We just got back yesterday from Charlotte for Parker's 3rd birthday party, and it was a blast. Mark and Jennie rented a bounce house, and Jennie (31 weeks preggo) and I (27 weeks) just about bounced these babies right out! I'm sure we were quite a sight! And probably in a train wreck sort of way - you want to look away but you just can't;)
