Rockin' Out in the Sears Courtyard

Back to last Saturday.  After the playground we headed back to my parents.  What are you looking at Becket?
Some sliding action.

 My dad felt like throwing Aden.
 That night we played a little mini golf.

 We could have gone to OC but we were just so tired.
 Sunday morning we got up and just decided to go home.  We got home and did nothing but rest so I don't have any pictures.  
 Monday morning Aden went to the YMCA camp at Holland Elementary.  
We just signed him up over the weekend when we found out his buddy Jake was going.  If not, we don't know what we would have done with Aden all week.  He lasted 3 days.  It's now Thursday night.  He refused to go to day and looks like he won't be going tomorrow either.
That left me with Ariel.  I took her to work.  She entertained everyone there.  We made a quick stop at the mall for lunch on the way home.

Then some food shopping.
That night we went to the neighbors to make smores.

 Aww.  Both in orange and black, is it Halloween already?
 Let's cook!
 Tuesday morning I took Ariel to see Ms. Marilyn put on a show at the Oxford Valley Mall.
 It turned out to be just a regular music class.
 Ariel had fun.

 She gave Marilyn a hug before we left.
 We are debating whether or not Ariel is going to continue with her this Fall.

Hitting 50 on the Wave Runner

It's already Wednesday night and I still have a bunch of pictures from last week so I'm going to have to make bigger posts.  Amy had her first day with the kids today.  For the most part the kids were good but she had some tough ones.  It must have been a really long day for her.  Hopefully everyone will settle in and she will have an easy year.  Just keep thinking it's only 9 months till next summer!

Last Friday, Jen and Howard checked out of their place in Ocean City and came to hang with us.  The kids had a great time in my parent's playroom.

Avery and Ariel really hit it off.   
 Chillin'.  Watching the little ones play.
 Hey Tali!
 On the move.

 Will be walking soon!
 We all went to the Greenhouse for lunch.  Ariel is obsessed with Lucy the Elephant. 
 Ariel went up to the bar and asked for a beer!  She really did!

 The kids messed around while we were waiting.

 I think Avery wanted a martini.
 Bye guys!  It was fun!
Great shot!

 We finally did the ice bucket challenge.  All three of us had been nominated several times.  I will post the video later.

 Aden and I went for a ride on cousin Marc's wave runner.
 We had a great time.  Aden wanted to go faster!
Clean up.
More cleaning up.  We barbecued that night for dinner.
Saturday morning we ran into the kids old sitter Rebecca.  She stayed in Michigan this summer so wasn't around to sit.  She's going to be living in Philly now so maybe we will see her from time to time.
We then went to the Longport playground.  Hard to tell in these pictures but it was cold and windy.  Probably not a beach day.
 These kids taught Aden to climb and he got really good at it.
 She still prefers the baby swing.

 Ariel made friends.

 She also kept asking this guy to help her do things.

 Bev's friends Dan and Matt and their daughter Becket came to visit.  Becket is the red head in the hat.  
 We had fun catching up.
