3 to the 5

BC is 35 years old! 
Last Tuesday he turned a year older (he is currently 2 years older than me).  After Declan's soccer game we grabbed some pizza, opened gifts and had some cookies and ice cream!  I did treat him to a steak dinner the following day, it's kind of a tradition now:)  We love you dad and wish you a year filled with lots of laughs, playing and being silly along with all the hugs and kisses you can handle!  Happy Birthday!!

 It's soccer season!  Declan is #5 on the Bustin' Blackberries.  He's had 2 games so far and has played so well.  He's started out at goalie in both games and does a great job blocking.  He's really figured out how dribble the ball and get it down the field.  He's had some awesome kicks, which have resulted in some awesome goals!  It's fun to see him really get into the game and get excited about it:)

And here's the celebration after a goal!

labor day

We spent Labor Day weekend up at Gem Island and had such a wonderful time with all the O'Rourke's!  Seamus was in town with his new fiancĂ©e, Danielle!  It was great to see all the brothers together again:)  Our boys had a blast with their aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents.  Our weekend was full of boat rides, tubing, rope swinging, swimming, fishing, Lucky Charm eating, games and hanging out!  Here's some pictures from our weekend:)

 And here we all are!

 This kid loved tubing!  He was determined that he was going alone and he couldn't have had more fun!

Conall's first day

 Tuesday was grumpy bears first day of preschool!  And he was more like super happy bear!  He has been looking forward to going to Ms. Seymour and Mrs. Christoff's class all summer.  His buddy Will is in his class, let's hope those two don't get into too much trouble!  When I asked him how his day was he told me that they got to play outside:)  Later he showed me that when you turn the lights off it's time to listen...glad he got that part!  Here's to a great year in 3/4's, good luck Conall D!
