In August 2012 our dear friends the Dawsons invited us to come & spend a week w/ them at their parents' beach house in Delaware. There was lots of boat riding, beaching, swimming, late night card playing & just plain fun! (oh, and let's not forget - for me & my pregnant self - lots of naps)
 Here's we'd anchored the boat & gone adventuring on a cool sandbar!

 And one afternoon we got hit w/ a huge rain/thunderstorm so we passed the time in the garage on scooters, big wheels & - apparently - cell phones :)

Back on the boat to go check the crab pots!
Oopsie!! Watch that first step, Jared! It's a doosey! Yep, Jared took an unexpected dunk in the Atlantic while trying to get near the edge of the boat to bring up a crab pot.

Of course the boys got to drive the boat! I think this was the highlight of their week!
 Fun in the sun w/ my boys!!!
 (and yes, my pregnant self & I insisted on wearing a life vest for the sake of the wee one within)

OSV Reenactments!

August 2012 - watching the Reenactments at Old Sturbridge Village of those fighting for our freedoms long ago!
 Jonah (tall, in orange t-shirt) learning the ways of the rifle!

 Jonah & Merrik listened to these men telling stories for over 30 minutes!
 Some of the soldiers bringing their cannon back from battle.

The tree must go...

In August 2012, the town came & removed a dying tree from our yard.
We were very sad. It was a nice huge oak that lined the driveway near the road.
However, the process was fascinating for the boys to watch!
Here's a before...
 ... and after ...
 The trunk is cut all the way down now too & we've got a nice sitting stump at the end of the driveway. Makes for good fun while waiting for the school bus!

 No summer is complete w/out a dip in the pool!
Thanks to our friend Jameson for having us over!

OH yeah - we have a BLOG!!

Well, in the past year & a half we've been a little busy (understatement!)
& the BLOG got put on the waaaayy back burner.
I will now attempt to show some highlights of the months that were missed.
(starting w/ the pics of our lil' Princess below)
Thanks for visiting!
