Happy Birthday Dad!

It's Sunday night and all the kids fell asleep early, which is great.  We didn't even do anything crazy today.  Back to last Saturday.  It was a beautiful day at the shore.  
I went for a run.  I have been doing about 2 miles.  I'm really getting to know our area well.  I'm not going far because I don't want to get exhausted and not be able to get home so I go in close circles.  
Bubble time.  
I took the 3 to Walmart to get some stuff we needed.  The twins absolutely loved it!
They found what they wanted, not!
Ariel did get a new scooter though.  
Over to the pool to celebrate dad's birthday.  
Just chillin' with my homies.  

Cake time!  Or should I say cakes?!  The birthday boy held the candle that he blew out.  I guess that's a new reality.   

Eli is our birthday cake boy!  

Someone was having a tantrum.  
A little playground time as the sun set helped relax them.  
Feeling better Noah?

The Hydrangeas are Back!

It's Thursday night again.  I made beef ribs in the pressure cooker.  It was a lot of work but they came out yummy.  These are from Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of last week.  Breezy Point used this for an ad for the school.  Eli and Noah are in there if you look!
Last Wednesday, Rachel came to give Ariel her cheer lesson.  The boys immediately wanted to get involved.  
Working on tumbling.  
I took the boys outside to get them away from Ariel.  

Of course it always ends up with the water.  
Wow it's been a hot July.  
Playing with the neighbors.  

I found a good workout challenge for Amy!  She would be great at this!
Thursday morning cereal.  
Every year, I take continuing legal education classes in Philly but of course they were virtual this year.  The best part of the classes is going into the city and getting my Amish doughnuts.  Oh well.  
The beard is coming along.  
12 hours of classes over 2 days.  
I picked the kids up from camp.  They had a guy making balloon animals.  Eli carried his elephant everywhere for like 5 or 6 days.  

We invited ourselves over to the neighbor's house to swim.  

Ariel was doing gimp before bed.  I remember the box stitch.  
Friday morning before camp, the boys found some old toys to play with.  It's actually not often you see Aden playing with the twins.  
After camp we drove to the shore.  Hey grandmom!
I had to go to Wawa.  It was packed!

Steven came over to play.  
We took a walk and saw flooding from the rain that day.  

The kids wanted to see my parents.  
Amy went and grabbed Honey to take her for a walk.  

Moira from across the street couldn't resist.  
Our hydrangeas are blooming!
