My brother and sister-in-law were in town visiting for the weekend so we did our duties as hosts and went out and about. We all loaded up and headed down to Galveston for seafood, ice cream and the beach.
Brian is not a fan of the beach. Maybe not the beach so much as the sand; but seeing as how the beach is made up of sand it's safe to say that Brian doesn't like the beach. Anyway, Camden loves the beach; especially the sand. And, after this trip, I would say Deegan does too. It was his first visit to the beach and was all smiles the second his little toes touched the sand.
When Brian's family (sister, her kiddos and his mom) were here for a visit we spent the large majority of our time outside. One afternoon we took them to the park for a picnic and to play. "Play" could be translated to mean we wanted them to run out some energy in preparation for nap time. They sure had fun morning getting ready to rest.
Brian's sister her kiddos and his mom came into town on Tuesday afternoon. They'll be spending a week with us. We're so happy to have them! It's the first time in almost a year and a half all the kids have been together. Since they're all older, which happens when time passes, they play together so much more than they did before. They've been having a blast and have spent most of the mornings and afternoons thus far in the backyard.
These are a few quick pics of their backyard adventures:
I will be very honest and admit that I am too tired to attempt to write anything cute or witty. With that being said...
The weather was beautiful this morning so we picked up breakfast and headed to the park. We all had fun running, swinging, sliding and climbing. Some of us more than others; Camden and I took to the playground while Brian and Deegan watched us.
Camden is too cool for pictures these days. Deegan on the other hand takes as many as we want...he's not able to escape just yet.
Camden ran up a small hill and then rolled down only to find himself in tiny stickers. Not the best idea.
Of course we made more than one visit to the swing set; its a favorite of both boys.
Our last stop was a little pond. We saw oodles of tiny fish and two turtles.
I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandchild, aunt, cousin, niece and friend. I have been married to my wonderful husband Brian for seven years. We have two adorable boys. Camden, our energetic and funny four year old and Deegan, who is our quiet yet daring one year old.
