Bubbles and books

A boy and his boat

Declan found this boat at the pool the other day and lugged it around with him most of the afternoon:)

Turtle Time

As Declan and I were on a walk last week we came across a huge turtle! I got him out of his stroller and he walked right up to it and touched it!! Good thing it wasn't a snapper:) His hands were quickly sanitized afterwards!

Cousins and Camps

Last week cousins Kiana and Delaney spent the week with us while they attended camps at the Riviera Club. Kiana did a cheerleading camp and Delaney did Splash camp (swimming, diving, etc.). Declan loved having them here, especially having Delaney in the back seat next to him...I loved being able to go to the bathroom by myself while he played with them:) Here's a couple of pictures from their week with us!

4 wheelin'

A big thanks goes to Uncle Rob for getting out Dalton's old 4 wheeler for Declan last weekend! And to cousin Dalton for pushing Declan around Aunt Tammy's yard all afternoon:) I know what you're thinking, yes, Declan should have a helmet on, but we did not have one and since he was being pushed around I was okay with it. But don't you worry, a helmet will be bought!! As you can tell Declan loved it!

Jake's Birthday Party

Saturday was our nephew Jake's 13th birthday and we all celebrated on Sunday with a cookout and ice cream cake!
Hanging with Uncle Jon.

Auntie Abby even stopped over to visit her little guy!

Cone's Tiki Hut

While we were visiting my parents this past weekend BC and I stopped over at the Cone's...Daniel was home too, so we had a chance to get caught up! A couple of summers ago the Cone's built a Tiki Hut and this was our first time enjoying it:) Daniel and I realized that we are each others "oldest friend", not because of our age, but because we were each others first friend!

I love this picture of BC...chillin' with a beer, enjoying life.

Cousin Jake's Baseball Game

As you can tell Declan was very interested in Jake's baseball game! He had a great game with an awesome catch and bunt...way to go Jake:)

Cool at the pool

Declan and I have been spending lots of afternoons at the pool lately! Dad joins us on the weekends and after work sometimes:) BC picked up a new little rash guard for Dec to wear (yes, I know he's not going surfing, but it has 40 UV protection and keeps him cool)! Here's a couple of pictures from today.

Ohio Wedding

Over the 4th of July weekend we traveled to Ohio (near Cincinnati) for BC's cousins wedding. Declan and BC missed most of the ceremony due to Dec's loud jibberish, but he loved walking around outside at the reception. He pulled off the little flowers and liked Great Gram's purse straps (don't worry, BC told him purses are for girls only). Congratulations to Bob and Lindsay Franke!
