week in photos

Just some pictures from last week:) Tried to stay off the computer, but I did hop on to edit pictures and print some...have some scrapbook pages I need to post. So here is what we were up to: Beach time. Unfortunately I think this will be limited to just taking walks on the beach for awhile. There weren't that many tar balls Monday, but Tuesday there were more (plus yucky seaweed). The thing that has me worried though are the dispersments used. There are now oil impact signs up warning against small children and pregnant woman going near the areas impacted by oil. The thing is, you can't see the dispersments used, so we are taking caution and not letting our small children in the water anymore:(
Which is a shame, because we have been loving living so close to the beach.
This picture above just might be my favorite right now...love the way both buckets behind the kiddos are both facing out, so didn't plan that, but it frames the picture nice?
Standing up, now what? He either takes a few wobbly steps, falls on his kness and crawls, or falls on his butt.
Miss Fishy. The last time we went to the pool, she swam the whole length of the pool. To think that just a couple weeks ago, she was terrified of going to where she couldn't stand in the pool. Shel-this shot was totally inspired by your pool pics of your sweeties:)
We are big Fancy Nancy fans over here and the latest book is Fancy Nancy and the Spectacular Spectacles. Aislynn wanted to make some of her own, so I let her use some of my scrapbook supplies and this is what we came up with:) She decided she needed her boa and wand:) Then she needed to have a dance party:)
Caught red-handed. He loves going into this drawer in the entertainment stand and pulling out all the movies. Such a stinker, this one. Good thing he is cute;)
A on her first day of Broadway Dance camp. It's 3 hours a day and she is totally loving it! On Friday, they are going to put on a little show for us;) Oh, and don't you love her outfit? She picked it out for the first day:)
We went to Seaside last night for an outdoor play of Charlotte's Web. We just finished reading this book last week (we were doing a chapter each night). A enjoyed the play, but she said she liked the book better.
Blue eyes:)
Aislynn took this picture of us. I didn't crop it at all, I like it:) Watching the play, but then he got a better view on Daddy's shoulders;)Just a shot of the play.
And a shot of us watching it:)
Now to catch up on blogs, e-mails, and all that stuff...but enjoying the rest of our summer. A starts school on August 9th, so going to try to make the most of lazy pool days and sunshine.

Oh I LOVED reading about it all! I have to make a list though...

I love: the buckets on the beach, the pic of A with the beach background (she looks so grown up!), the pic of K standing on his own, the beautiful floral skirt on A, the pic she shot of you and S, the PLAY! Oh just all of it!

I am sorry to hear the news about the beach. I am hoping that it is all over SOON!

Can't wait to see what you scrapped, too!
