wip 8.17.13

my mom came over in the morning so i could run errands. so much easier without a baby in tow!
stopped and signed us up for our gym membership! love that it's 24 hours and like 3 minutes from our house. {disclaimer since i'm so late in posting... i've only gone twice since being cleared. i'm using the excuse that it's still nice out. that i'll go more in the crappier weather.}

stopped at this super cute bow store on the square.

picked up some growlers of beer. i love crown blue. just saying.

then it was off to the drive in to see turbo and planes.

"mick's" new favorite thing, is to order pizza and take it to go.

i went and played frisbee with the wee man while nick hung with melie.

3/4 pressners in the back of the flex!

nick outside with baby girl and i stayed inside and snuggled with ben.

turbo was okay. i, of course, fell asleep. nick said he liked it. i barely made it through five minutes of planes. nick was not at all impressed. kind of hard to live up to cars, though.

nick and ben went to karate with jas and the girls. i hung out with miss 'i like to shove my hands in my mouth and knock out my binky then get mad and chew on my hands.'

went to kev's birthday party at the parental unit's house.
ben likes grandpa's pickled peppers. 

nick trying one of dad's hot peppers. but not the super hot ones.

there is video. it's hilarious. nick was glad he didn't try the other one. pretty sure he polished off a few glasses of milk and coughed for a few hours after too!

pool time!

was a bit chilly. they headed to the hot pool pretty quickly.

these two are pretty funny together. <3

someone decided he should sing and blow out candles with the birthday people.

the july birthday club. ;)

bought my mom a giant fly swatter. last year she asked for a fly swatter for her birthday. do you have any idea how hard they are to find?! so when i stumbled across this ginormo one a few months back, i grabbed it. pretty sure the fly is smaller than the square. hope she has good aim!

just us girls. missing my aunt!

ben was trying to help us pack the car!

he's such a good helper!

we had to come home early so nick could go out to work. the kids and i enjoyed a pretty chill rest of the evening.

headed to the beach for noah's birthday party.

auntie bri, nick, and ben. really wishing i didn't have these csection restrictions still!

everyone hanging on the beach. was a great day to be out!

let's bury ben. love that he's such a good sport.

miss bug chilling in the tent.

fun with beach toys.

we brought some games for everyone to play.

there was a major meltdown because nick didn't want to spend the entire time in the water with ben. and ben only wanted daddy.

later he relaxed and headed out with katie and kelly.

pressie time.

my love.

my brother happened to have his boat out and was actually just a bit off shore from where we were. so he came and joined us. the boys played football. i had no clue that kevin could throw a football!

mommy ben self photo op!

the birthday boy had two broken arms. done within two weeks of one another. he was able to use the shovel to get food into his mouth. told trisha she didn't need to go to school with him to feed him at lunchtime... just send him with a shovel!

brotherly love.

everyone just chilling.


girls on baby duty.

melie isn't so sure about all these pictures with cousin megan. she'll learn. ;)

time to pack up.

no! we still want to play.

she's ready!

birthday boy showing off his casts.

cousin megan found ben. time for their self portraits!

wait, noah can use a shovel to eat goldfish... i'm in!

brother on the boat.

i love the beach. just some happy scenery.

long day! it's something else to plan beach time around pumping! happy we went. was so good to visit with everyone and the kids had a blast!
