So enough about that--right now I'm very behind in my blogging and I need to catch up with an update of our Memorial Day weekend. We went to our getaway house and had an amazing time.
The pool was open for the season and luckily the weather cooperated so we logged in a lot of swim time.
Here's Gooser enjoying the water--he doesn't actually know how to swim yet, but I'm going to sign him up for lessons this summer.
Pickle had fun playing with her brothers in the water.
Oh--here she is modeling her new bathing suit!
Here are the three big boys taking a break from their pool game to pose for a pic. The game involves paddling around in those too-small boats and hitting each other with those noodle things.We went to one of our favorite restaurants--the one that serves cotton candy for dessert!
I was getting all punchy with the cotton candy cones. Here I am as a unicorn:
And when I asked Don to take my pic with "devil horns" he said "I think you've had too many martinis!"
Gooser got in on the action too!Some excitement on the trip--we found a turtle!Don rescued him from the side of the road right before he was about to become road kill. He spent the night in our ball pit wading pool thing, but the next day we let him go.Random portrait of my Rolleiflex! So far I am NOT getting such great pics with it--must keep practicing!We went down to the beach to set off some fireworks and I attempted to get some group shots--but Pickle just wouldn't cooperate.
These were the "best" ones I got--and that's not saying much.
But I was able to get some decent non-group pics. Here's Pickle enjoying the beach:And dancing on the beach:Relaxing in the sand:"Downward-facing dog!"Andy and Gooser:Patrick:More Gooser:I got a decent sunset pic:And a sunset with trees:And I got a good shot of our pool too--the sky was so beautiful--it was hot pink!I also did a photo shoot in the backyard. One evening, the light was so pefect and I was begging the kids to let me get their pics in this amazing light. They were playing and didn't want to be bothered--but I got a couple.
Pickle glaring at me--but look at the light!The light! The light!Gooser glowing in the light:Patrick engulfed in the light:And finally, we went to a low-end fun fair. I thought it would be a good place to get pics with my Rolleiflex--we'll see how those turn out--but here's one of the kids with a really makeshift rendition of Shaggy and Scooby. What happened to Shaggy's upper lip?Whew--that was a looooooong post! Here's to another year of blogging!
