Let's bug each other this summer!

Okay, it's only the second week of summer and they are in full force! Everything turns into "bug, bug, bug!" Right now it's funny and, sometimes, even cute. But, luckily (and a little bit "sadly") we have a busy summer ahead of us. Today Jake and Brady start Junior Lifeguards at the beach. Rob and Tay did it when they were about this age and it's become a family rite of passage. It's a big undertaking, but my strong and spunky little ones are ready for the challenge!

We took our dinner to the park, one night last week, and found silly things to do.

This is Jake at his basketball awards ceremony. He is an awesome basketball player (if I do say so myself). He will be 13 at the end of this week, so it's time to have a growth spurt and reach the rim:). He's loving playing and we love watching him.

Brady had an "End of Year" pool party. She just had her closest friends, from school, over. It was fun and the girls were ready to let loose from the crazy work of the school year.

Bring it on!

One Busy Father's Day Weekend

The big recital was this weekend, Father's Day weekend. It was 3 days of crazy excitement! Brady had 5 shows. The biggest one was on Sunday. That meant that Daddy and Grandpa had to share their day with the dancer. They actually moved right over and let the afternoon be all about the best dancer in our family :).

Some of Brady's good friends from dance.

Grandpa & Grandma came from Las Vegas, too. They never miss the recitals.

Grandpa spoiled us all and cooked up some spicy wings before the 2 PM show. And, it was Father's Day!

What a mess, good thing she showered before the show.
Jake enjoys him some wings!

Rob took off his shirt so he could dive into his plate of wings!

Grandma even appreciates Grandpa's cooking, who doesn't?

Daddy, Grandpa, Jake & Rob (Tay wasn't there yet and Brady was back stage).

After the last show we went to eat at Daddy's favorite spot, Super Mex!
These are some good daddies (minus Jake). We are so lucky to have them.
Happy Father's Day, you wonderful guys!
