Holy Curls!

I just got Bella out of the bath and had her hair down. I have been keeping it up in twists all over the top. I hadn't just left it down and let it dry for many weeks. Look at it! I was pleasantly suprised at the mop she is fashioning!!

Monkey joes andchuck e cheeses

We had 2 firsts this week. We checked out this place monkey joes where they have ginormous bouncer slides and things and we went to our local chuck e cheeses. Big Chauncey was home all day Thursday for monkey joes, then today the thompsons came with us to chuck e cheeses. Both were a success! Happy last day of track out today! I think we lived it up pretty well the last 3 weeks with a whole lot of fun!

These pictures are from chuck e cheese. I didn't have my phone at monkey joes, next time...

Moe's and DQ

Chauncey and I divided up and I went to walmart while he went across to moes to get a burrito. He pulls in and tells the boys he can't get a burrito because he didn't have his wallet. Little Chauncey from the back seat said, "don't worry dad, I've got it." he had his treasure chest in the car and gave dad money to buy a burrito. What a cute kid!

We also went to DQ to reward the kids for helping me clean the house for 2 hours today . They did an outstanding job and mostly endured to the end!

Bella played the uh oh game with her spoon.

Pet store

We also visited a pet store where they had tons of puppies and you could just pick one and they would put you in a room where you can play with the puppy! They were so so cute!

Family Photo Shoot 2009

These are the uncropped, raw images from the photo shoot. It was by far the easiest family photo experience we have ever had! If you have a Portrait Innovations Studio near you, I would highly recommend giving them a try!

We went to Portrait Innovations yesterday to get a dreaded family photo taken. It was fantastic!! There were 2 people with us the entire shoot, one taking the pictures and the other making the kids happy and smiling. We didn't lift a finger! What a luxury! We are very pleased that it is over, and done, and love the results!

Happy October from the beach!!

This was the bravest Kate has been in the ocean. She even went really deep with me and jumped the waves with me holding her arms.

We had a fantastic first day of October at the beach!! It was 75 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.

Bella loved the sand and crawled to the waters edge several times. She was eating crackers and she would intentionally put sand on them before each bite.

Lots of sand castles.

And body boarding, my personal favorite.

Big Chauncey and I were lying down on towels and Bella grabbed a fist full of sand and was crawling towards us. I notice and told him so he covered his head with the towel. She ripped off his towel and chucked it at him smiling! We are in big trouble with her!
