Boys Will Be Boys

I do not know where the time goes. Or what I am doing to pass the time.? Have you ever thought back on things, such as naptimes, and wonder "What have I been doing with myself?" Well I couldn't tell ya! But I do know that time flies and I am busy doing something! So I apologize for my sporadic posting. I am going to try to be more consistent (especially for you family members who anxiously await!).

Lately we have been busy enjoying this beautiful weather outside while we can!

I just have to giggle at my BOYS! They are attracted to sand, dirt, water, mud, you name it, like a magnet! If it's dirty, they are all about it!

We were at my mom's sometime in early summer and the boys were playing outside in her backyard, in the dirt of course. She was trying to persuade them to play in a cleaner place and they didn't want anything to do with it. I had to remind her that "they're boys Ma, that's what they do." She only had girls mind you.

Sometimes I want to keep them from getting dirty too, and then I remind myself that I need to let my boys be boys. A little dirt won't hurt anything. And hey, if it keeps them busy and happy, I am all about that!

The Beach

Wow it has been much too long since I have posted! It is really something when your husband reminds you because he keeps looking for a new post and it's not there...(especially when it's my husband).

We have had lots of visitors over the past few weeks! And the sad thing is I don't have many pictures to prove it! I am not sure what my problem is that I am not grabbing my camera. I have been telling Craig that I need a new that I will like using! So I am hopeful when my birthday rolls around in a few months...

First my mom and Russ were here for part of their vacation. We had fun celebrating my mom's birthday. Then Kevin & Hannah and their boys were here for a week. And today we just said goodbye to Craig's parents after they were here for a few days. My boys have been spoiled! Now it's back to reality - just boring old Mom and Dad!

Some of our favorite times lately have been at the beach. It is pretty cool to live near this:

Gage likes to dip his feet in the water.Eli is content just playing in the sand.Craig likes to play too, and I just enjoy the view.
