New Family Photos

Unfortunately, we chose to take pictures on a very hot and humid evening.  The girl taking our pictures had issues with her lens fogging up from being in the A/C and then outside in the humidity.  Some turned out fine, most didn’t.  Oh well.

Ethan Charles – 8  1/2 years old
Isaac Anderson – 6  1/2 years old
Lincoln Nicholas – 2  1/2 years old
My favorite picture of Lincoln from the night!
Here we are exhausted from the photo shoot and drained from the 90 + degrees and high humidity!

***** My favorite childhood family picture!*****
I hated getting my picture taken when I was little.  It really was a power struggle each time the camera was around. (My poor parents…)  Looks like I won this battle!  LOL – makes me laugh every time I see it!

Back to School

Where did the summer go?

Here the boys are standing in front of their school on the evening of open house.
First day excitement!  (We just finished day 3 of school as I blog this…the excitement was short lived.)
Getting ready to walk to the bus stop…
At the bus stop the boys met up with Stevie.  Lincoln couldn’t wait to see the big bus!  He brought his toy bus along.
Daddy worked from home and was able to come along and see the boys off on their first day.
There they go! (snif, snif)

Diving Board Fun

The boys swimming skills have come a long way this summer.  Ethan passed the long swimming test at the YMCA on his very first try and now has permission to use the diving boards and swim in the deep water.  Isaac came close to passing, but got tired and couldn’t make it to the end.  Luckily, the pool in Dan and Kari’s neighborhood does not require you to pass a test in order the use the diving board!  This was Isaac’s first jump off a diving board.

They had so much fun doing this over and over and over again…

Fun at the Lake

I decided it would be a good thing for the boys to play at the lake for an afternoon. After convincing Warren that it was a good idea, I packed everything up and we headed out.  Not knowing what to expect since we had never been to this beach, we learned that the bottom of the beach is very rocky and painful to walk on, an overcast sky and a poor application of sun screen will not protect Warren’s delicate skin from harmful rays, and the boys do not know how to eat snacks without eating sand at the same time.  We played for nearly two hours and then the sky opened up and a big storm came in.  Everything got soaked before we had a chance to get to the car.  Oh well, Warren was happy we had an excuse to leave. 🙂

Children’s Museum

My friend and I took the kids to the museum.  Ethan chose to play at a friends house instead of coming along.  He says the museum is baby-ish. Seriously? You’re eight, kid!
I love this picture of Isaac and Lincoln playing the piano with the city skyline in front of them.
