Pretty Poses!

A boy and his beach (Austin)

 Austin and Logan


 Sunset on the Sound

 Pretty Lady!
 Me and my Mom!


The twins have been planning a Beach Ultimate Frisbee Game
ever since we visited Evan and watched himplay at college.

Team 1  
Team 2

We didn't really keep score.  Everybody played hard.  Nobody got hurt.  And we had a lot of fun.

(And if you know me and how competitive I am you know that one of the above statements is a lie!)

(One more post and I should have Vacay 2011 all wrapped up!)

Vacation - All I Ever Wanted!

Happy To Get Awayyyyyyyyyy
(You should be singing that!)

We just returned from a fab-U-lous week at the beach!

Don't we all look like happy, beautiful people?

In the line-up:
Mason and Lory, my brother Mitch, his better half, Patsy and her son Frankie,
Nonnie, Gary, moi, Evan and Amanda
Frick and Frack
(a.k.a Austin and Logan)


Poor little Austin gets minor car-sickness, and both boys do NOT stop asking, "Are we there yet? How much longer?" Despite all the toys/movies and games we had within their reach, nothing occupied them longer than 3 seconds.  The 3 hour car ride seemed like 10.  Not.  Even.  Kidding. 

However - once there! 
The Fun, FUN, FUN began!

 The boys discovered they can "carry" each other in the water!

 Austin clearly is happy!

Frankie tosses Logan!

 Daddy tosses Logan

 Mid-air high-five!

 Happy Logan!

 Mason and Austin!

Mitch and Logan

Logan, Austin, and Evan!

 Chicken Fight!

Austin celebrating his victory!

We are so, so, SO blessed to have so many brothers and uncles to play with the boys!
And can you believe with ALL this play, ALL this pooltime, ALL this sun,
that the boys remained in non-cranky mode most of the week and in high spirits
and high-energy 90% of the time (not that the adults did!). 
The boys stayed up late, woke up early every day and only took
one mid-week 20 minute nap!
Of course, they crashed hard for 2 1/2 hours on the way home
(making for a much easier trip for Mommy and Daddy!)

More pics to come!
