Fourth of July and the Beach!

We’ve had a busy past couple of weeks…

Steve and I made a quick trip down to Boca Raton for Camden’s Baptism the last weekend in June.  We are so honored to be his Godparent’s; the whole day was very special.

We planned to go to the country club for their fourth of July festivities but unfortunately they had to cancel them due to the rain (apparently they are rescheduled for some time in the fall).  So, we decided to take the boys to see Despicable Me 2 at Phipp’s - it was great!

And how cute is Catelin in this outfit?!

We went down to Carillon Beach for a long weekend with our dear friends, the Lorimer’s, and their two children (Mia – 4 and Will – 17 months).  The first day we were there it rained and rained and rained, so we let the “big kids” outside for some fun…

And then we went to an arcade (which was a little shady, but the kids didn’t care) for a few hours that evening.  All of their tickets only got them some fake teeth – but they were thrilled!

Thankfully, the next two days were PERFECT beach days – sunny with a nice breeze so it wasn’t too hot.  We ran into Jim Nichols (one of Steve’s close friends) there on vacation with his entire family and they were kind enough to share their tent and beach toys!

Can you believe we got all five of them to sit long enough to get this picture …

Catelin had a ball scooting herself around the beach.  She did not care at all that she was covered in sand (mostly thanks to Ty Ty who kept dumping it on her).  It was adorable.

The boys had a great time building sand castles, taking rides on the “boat”, swimming in the ocean, and flying kites.

We also had fun watching the kids chase and feed the ducks outside our condo.

The last night we were there they did a fireworks show over the lake that was awesome!  Catelin was asleep and Ty went inside because he was afraid of all of the noise…but MJ and I had a great time watching it.  :)

  1. Your kids are just so precious, and Catelin scooting across the sand on the beach is hilarious!
