Hey, who blew out my candles?!
It was Jack!!! That stinker!!!
Luke's birthday is Sammy's half-birthday, so he got to blow out a candle, too!
Here is a video of Sam having fun with Auntie Mimi
The next event is a continuation of that same night... Luke's first haircut! Scott had been wanting to have Luke's hair cut, but Amy held him off as long as possible (how could anyone want to cut those curls?!?!). Their deal, though, was that he would have his hair cut when he turned two. It was so sad saying goodbye to those curls, but as cute as he is with them, he was just as cute with his new big boy haircut!
And the "after" shots... taken the next day.
Isn't he adorable?! And while we're on the subject... our next event was a trip to the beach! Mom and I took the boys to play in the sand, have lunch and put our feet in the water, and we even found a crab! We had a great time and the boys really enjoyed it too. Jack and Luke loved the water! Sam liked it too, until I put him down to take a picture of him... but I promise he liked it up until that point!
The next August even was that weekend: we went swimming in Auntie Mimi's pool! Luke got to wear his new PuddleJumper floatie that we got him for his birthday, we worked hard with Jack on actually jumping into the pool rather than leaning and plopping, and Sam had a blast counting to three on his fingers and then "jumping" into the pool!
Aaaaaand last but not least is our final August event!!! At the beginning of the summer we were asked if we'd like to host an end-of-summer picnic for the kids and parents of our church, and after a lot of consideration (at the time we were asked our house was a disaster due to our kitchen remodel and we weren't quite sure if we'd be ready by then), we decided to say yes! As entertainment one of the families brought over their inflatable bouncer/water slide for the kids, and we set out the boys' ball pit for the younger ones. All of the kids had a blast and the parents did, too!
Entertaining themselves while mommy and daddy get ready for the party
I have a TON of photos from that day... this will probably be long, but I want to try to include everyone!
So, yesterday my lovely four year old managed to download a virus onto the computer that I use for my photos, so that will throw a kink into my plans of catching up with my blog. I am pretty dumb when it comes to computer stuff like viruses and all that, so we'll see how long it takes me to figure it out. I have the worst luck with computers!!! Oh well, I'll get September up eventually ;)
