Ahoy Matey!

Just like clockwork, every summer my little boy turns into a 
little buccaneer.  
We're back in our tattered pants and eye patches again looking for bounties of treasure everywhere we go.  

There's never a dull moment 'round here!

Team Player

I never really had a grand plan for G's first organized activity.  
I'm sure most parents would've enrolled their child in soccer or t-ball by now, but I never really felt the need.  
However, when Swim Team proved to be an option, 
we dove right in!  
G participated in his first official meet last night and it couldn't have been cuter.  
He really did great!  
He had a huge dive in, started out strong, then the problem arose when his bff in the next lane over slowed down.  
…and sweet G slowed down to "wait" for him.
When I asked him why he kept slowing down, his response was,
"I wanted me and T to go together." 

What a big boy in his first swim meet!

Memorial Day Fun

We had a great Memorial Day Weekend!  
G enjoyed a lot of firsts;
a backyard sprinkler (since our backyard is water challenged)
and camping with his daddy were among a few.  

We also spent two days of this long weekend on the Lake.  
Fun, fun, fun!

Natural Beauty

Yesterday's post was all about the gorgeous resort, but today's pics will show the natural beauty on the island.  
It was soooooo pretty!

Pretty amazing, huh?

Puerto Rico, Si!

For last year's Spring vacation, J and I went on the kiddie trip to Disney.  
So, this year we decided that G needed to go on the adult trip to Puerto Rico!  
I'm not saying that Disney is entirely awful, 
 (it kinda is)
but this trip was so much better for us.  
We spent our days playing in the water, looking for shells, and  going on lots of crab, lizard, and frog hunting expeditions.  
It was just more...
...shall we say
…than spending days waiting in line for rides or, even worse, making appointments to stand in line for rides.  Blah!  

I took so. many. pictures.
I'll have to post them in a few installments!

…and one of the happy boy eating ice cream in the cabana.  

More to come soon!

Easter Sunday

We're so lucky that the blue skies opened up just in time for a happy Easter.  
Please excuse G's hair - 
these pics were taken after two church services and brunch so it's looking a little wild!  

We played with our new baseball set (courtesy of the Easter bunny) until 8:00 last night.  
That Easter bunny is sooooooo thoughtful, 
he knew Mommy was getting tired of pitching baseballs to G!!!

This weather has simply got to go!  
The constant state of gloom we've been in keeps me motivated to do nothing.  

There is sunshine promised for the weekend and I cannot wait!!

A Little Inspiration

Check out this fun online magazine for a little inspiration.  

We're so looking forward to a lazy weekend at home!
It's been kind of busy around here so a little pause will be nice.  :-)

So Sad

I'm so sad that my favorite tree has lost its' blooms.  
On Monday, my neighbors' cherry blossom tree looked so beautiful, 
but the cold on Tuesday snapped all the color away.  
I'll keep my eye out for others to photograph, 
but these inspiration shots will have to do for now.

Taking Shots

This little fella is usually calling the shots 'round here, 
but yesterday he had to take his shots 
(in the form of vaccinations) 
and it wasn't pretty.  
He literally didn't move all. day. long. because his legs 
were too sore.  
Boo for bad shots!!

Here's to hoping today is MUCH better!

More Fun In The Snow

This snowstorm was great for us.  
Griffin had plenty of time to play in the snow and I had time to catch up on things that I'd been putting off.  
Here's a few pics of my little guy in the snow.

Valentine's Day!

Happy Heart's Day to you!  
We're still enjoying our snow time and hoping to get out again this morning.  

P.S. I really did try to get some of the snow pics ready, but my editing programs are not cooperating.  
Can't wait to share - I have TONS!!!!!

Walking In A Winter Wonderland

This snow is great! 

I'm so glad that the ice storm missed us.  
There is a little bit of the slippery stuff on top of the snow, but not much.

We attended the first, fun formal of 2014 over the weekend and had a great time.  
This necklace made the otherwise boring dress I wore.

…and did I say I was ready for more snow?!?!
I'm SUPER excited about today's snow storm!
