18 Months

This tiny tot is officially 18 months! A healthy happy big boy.

He walks the halls waving at everyone like he is the mayor.
He does not like to leave a room until he has either high-fived everyone or waved.
Seems a little familiar, maybe like his social Daddy!

Court strutting his 20 3/4 pounds and 30" of sheer cuteness!
Back on the chart, barely (but we will take it!)

It's Official....

Yep, its Official... the mom around here is totally losing her mind!

This is the current state of our house with about 4 weeks to go until we move out for the renovation... lots of late nights staying up packing cause a lapse in judgement.

That's right... Girls were given the green light to draw on the walls.
They will only be up for a few more weeks after all.

They created a masterpiece in minutes time!

Pretty happy about their drawings!

And score, Mom gets cool points!

Doing the happy dance.

Camp Honey Pop

Camp Honey-Pop was last week for all the kids. It was the second summer of camp but the first one that Court has gone to. A full week without kids for Mom & Dad (yes I have the best in-laws in the world!) and 3 very happy campers! The kids went to Vacation Bible School at Honey & Pop's church, went swimming a lot, hit the park and had a fantastic time! Mom & Dad stayed home and packed up a lot of the house (more on that to come with another blog about our house renovation set to begin in a few weeks) but here are the pictures of the kids' fun filled week!

Thank you Honey & Pop. We are already counting down the days until the next summer session!

Boat boy!

Court has officially hit the age where you just can see that boys and girls are wired differently right from the start. Anything with a loud engine like lawnmowers, lots of wheels like trucks or the speed of a boat have this little guy's heart. Court is a very laid back little dude to begin with but put him on a boat and his heart smiles he is so happy. When he was younger the lull of the motor would put him right to sleep, now he prefers to sit in a lap and take it all in. His eyes do not even blink with the amazement he is in when he is out on the water....

We look forward to many more boat trips with you Captain Court!

Grumpa's Garden

The beach babes are officially off duty!

We packed up and left the beach and drove through to visit with Grumpa & Libby.
There was a new addition that all of the kids loved... Grumpa's Garden!
Summer veggies.
The girls were really into picking everything they could get their hands on.

Fresh squash, yummy!

Picking green beans.

Court found a "mato" as the girls say.
Court still gives a "uhhh" sound for just about everything. I think the constant chit chat of all the ladies in the house makes his ears ring!

The Girls

The girls...

the beach.

When they grow up,

they want to be mermaids!

That is their daydream for today.

Tyler, age 3 1/2

Harper, age 3 1/2

And always two steps right behind his big sissies...
