Trying Out the Bumbo

It's Sunday night and we are back from the Shore!  We had a very nice weekend.  Got in some beach time, some pool time, some Juniors doughnuts and maybe just a bit too much sun. (several parts of my body are bright red!)  It was a lot of work but I think still worth it.  We pretty much had the place to ourselves.  Where was everyone?  More doughnuts for us!

Back to Memorial Day.  We drove out to Cherry Hill for Becky's 35th birthday party.  It was a big crowd but mostly from Becky and Larry's synagogue so we didn't know that many.  Ariel was too cool.
I don't know if the boys ever got out of their chairs.
Happy Birthday Becky!
Everyone posed for a picture.

We did talk to some nice people.
Ariel made a friend of course.

Ok Noah, time to head to the next party!
We drove back towards home to go to Ali and Todd's for a barbecue.  Any ideas on getting all 12 eyes looking at the camera?  I guess I will just have to wait till they are all old enough to bribe!
Lindsay and baby Nathan.
 The kids had fun playing.

Todd looks like he belongs in the Hangover!

They cooked a great meal!

I got a bourbon cake shipped in from Kentucky.  It was awesome! Ate it all week!

Me and the babies.
Nate showed off his Bumbo.

Aden made a friend.
The little ones went crazy for a while.
Hey Eli!
Eli's turn in the Bumbo.  He did well!

Thanks for having us!  Everything was great!

Fun Day at the Pool

It's Thursday night and all's quiet.  We have to finish cleaning the kitchen and fold the laundry but at least bed is within sight!  The boys are still sleeping pretty well.  Going in around 9 and waking up between 4 and 6.  Sometimes Noah might stir in the middle of the night but a quick binkie in mouth usually takes care of that. That also sometimes works at 4 to push out that first meal till later. Baseball tonight seemed long for the parents.  Soccer signups for the fall started today.  Aden and Ariel will be playing at almost the same time!  You would think they would expect kids to have siblings a few years younger and split the younger and older kids by day or by morning and afternoon.  Also, it's the end of an era for Aden.  I loved that he's been with all the same kids in baseball and soccer since he started but several of the boys, including his best friend Jake are going try travel soccer.  We are not doing that with Aden, too much of a commitment.  

Back to last Sunday.  This is a mega post but I figured I needed to get through the weekend before this weekend starts.  Alright boys, time to get up!


We went to Jaime and Abby's house to swim.  Jason and Lisa came in from New York to join us.  Aden was excited to see Carter and Ariel Sloane.
 Wow, look at that pool.
 There were lots of big girls to look after Ariel.
 The big boys were crazy.
 Hot tubbing.  Thanks for all the help Amanda!

 Have to get one of these things!
 Ariel actually chickened out.  She usually is so fearless.

 The bar mitzvah boy.

 Aden and Carter are so similar that they act like brothers.  Which means they play well and fight when they are not.
 My big girl.

 Soccer time.

 Out onto the open space to play.

 Some dancing.
 Back to the pool.

 Hey Eli!

 Noah isn't quite ready to walk yet.  Soon enough we will be chasing them around.

 Thanks guys! We had a blast!
 Finally back home.  We were there from 12-6!

 Kisses for my brother.
