So Many Ariels

Somehow we are at Thursday night again.  Before you know it it will be time to head to the Shore!  We are getting some huge smiles from both the boys.  That makes all the tiredness and stress just melt away!  I will post lots of smile pics next week.  First we have to get through a crazy weekend starting with a non-stop Saturday. We have Aden's baseball pics at 10:45, a birthday party and baseball carnival at 11.  Ariel's soccer at 12.  Aden's baseball game at 2 and another birthday party at 4.  Then we have cousins who want to visit.  This is all Saturday! Wish us luck!

So back to last weekend.  We are all proud of our Maura who graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with honors.

Back to swim.

Not sure what this was about.

Getting us dressed after swim is always kind of crazy.  Usually it's just whatever we need to get home and shower.  This time I had to turn her into the Little Mermaid.
Pretzel and chocolate milk every week.
Baby Christian joined us.  
Amy then took Ariel to meet Ariel!  
 There were a bunch of Ariel's, and a couple of Elsa's.
 Ashely too!
 They played games and sang songs.
 There are lots of fun things around the community now that we started looking.
Then I took the older kids to the Kid's Castle in Doylestown.

We didn't stay long.  Amy needed our help at home.

That night we had dinner at my parents.
 It's sweet watching my parents play with the kids.
 Aden got some rolls of quarters for trying new foods!
 Then he built a record player, which he has no idea what to do with.  Have a great weekend!

Fun in the Pool

I'm way too tired for this so I will be brief.  Last Saturday was one of those nutty days.
Ariel had soccer with Sammy and Jaxson.
 They did some funny exercises.
 Like be zombies.
 Not really sure how this helps you play soccer.
 Deep in conversation.

 She always ends up on an adults lap.

 Then we had a very nice visit from Sandy, Elliot and Morgan.
Ariel got to play with Amanda then Morgan and later Sophie.  She loves the big girls.  Tells them what to do!
Then Aden had Brody's birthday party at the NAC.   This was our first inside pool party there.  They don't go to school together so Aden didn't know many of the kids besides his buddy Jake!
Ready to party?
People have said he looks like me here.
Sophie did not want to swim so she helped with the babies.
They had to take a swim test to start.  So dumb. What 6 year old want to take a test in front of everyone before a party?  Would ruin it for me!
 Aden hasn't been in a pool since Florida in September.  Too kong but he did fine.
 The obstacle course was really hard and they just did it over and over.

 Aden did well but for some reason had a bloody nose.  He might have hit it going up the side.

The kids ended up in the small warm pool.
 Hey Jake!
 Ariel still loves the drama.
Upstairs for pizza and cake.

 The boys were good.  Just watching everything.

 We ran into Ariel's boyfriend Dylan at a party in the next room!
It was a long day!
