This weekend was actually a great example of that. We made it to the Cape on Friday after work - it took us over four hours with stops, traffic, etc. It was a borderline nightmare. The reason I say borderline is that thankfully when we arrived at almost 9PM, all three kids went to bed easily. THANK GOD. They woke with conjunctivitis, and each twin took turns having some sort of break out in hives. I still don't know why - but we are heading to their 3 year dr appointment this morning, so we will figure it out.
This photo is from when we stopped for food on our way down the Cape...Con is feeding Cal an apple.
It wasn't that bad, but it was eventful. Then we woke up in the Cape on Saturday and walked to the beach near our house. This was probably Jim and my favorite part of the weekend.
Usually after the weekend ends, Jim and I talk about our "high, low, memorable" point from our weekends. We do this mainly because we barely have time to talk to each other all weekend with running around after these guys. Both of our "high point" was the walk and the time together at the beach. It was great. What's funny is that we packed almost nothing (because we walked) yet it was awesome. I loved the simplicity of it. And all three boys had a blast.
Cal was literally still in his PJs, and I didn't even have a hat for him. But he had fun!
Cal is ELEVEN months old today. Wow! That went by quick.
We brought the boys home and they took some naps. During naps and after, we spent time at our house and in our yard. We don't often do that because we typically walk down to the beach, but it was quite nice! It was really warm outside, so we put some water in the little blue pool. Cal went in the water first while the twins napped. Then they went in the pool when they woke up.
As you can see, Con and Cal loved it - but Caden was a little skeptical. Caden was the more sick/uncomfortable kid at this point. Conor was on the mend.
Jim's sister T got all of us the same hat with our initials for Mothers Day. How cute!
Look how they've changed in two years! They are growing up so fast. It's crazy.
