Eating Sushi For Uncle Treavor's Birthday!!

Matty and Abby were so excited when Uncle Treavor wanted to take them with him for Sushi. On his actually birthday we had Me N Ed's the kids other favorite food. Matty and Abby both love the rolls. They experiment, more Abby than Matty. Matty loves crab and when he found that California Rolls are mostly crab he was hooked! The food came before I was able to get a picture with Uncle Treavor and the kids. Once the food came they were all about the food and not the pictures.
Matty showing us he can use chopsticks.

Abby wanted more than sushi tonight so she also dined on chicken and rice. She's a fork and fingers type of girl.

Last Beach Day With Friends

Every Monday during the summer of group of Mom's sometimes Dad's meet at Bay and splash and play in the water and sun. It was sad to realize that this was going to be the last one before school started and summer was almost over. The kids loved going to the beach and playing with their friends. They would always remind me that it was Monday and it was beach day. We look forward to next summer for Beach Days to start again.

Abby loves building sand castles. Many times this summer this is all she did at the beach.
Matty loves ships and a little boy brought one and let him play with it. He was in heaven.
Abby running and playing with Corine with the boogie board.
Matty and Will building a sand castle ride on the edge of the water. They worked on this for a long time.

Deborah always was such a good sport and would have a water fight with all the kids. All the kids against her. She was always drenched.
Abby was always in the middle of the water fight. She giggled the whole time.
This is towards the towards the end of the water fight and you can see Abby is still there with her bucket full of water.

Splashing Away

We are so lucky to live by the beach and when we can't get to the beach we are extra lucky to have a pool right in front of our house. If Matty and Abby could they would spend their life in the pool. They love to swim and play in the pool. There are many times there are tears because they don't want to get out. Even though they have been in for over 3 hours. Daddy has been working on swimming without floaties with both kids. We planned on putting them in swim lessons but before we knew it the summer has come and gone. They both are doing very well with Daddy teaching them. We are going to enroll them in official lessons later this year. Matty loves to jump in and try to get toys from the bottom of the pool and making big splashes. Abby just loves to be in the water. I have 2 water bugs and they have always been that way.

One of the first times Abby trying to swim without floaties. She was not to happy with the idea at first. Now she loves it.

First the jump and then the splash. Matty loves jumping in and making waves as he says. Abby seems to always be around him when he does this. Both of the kids love swimming. It is so funny when there are other people in the pool Abby will tell them from our window that that's her pool and not to mess it up. Funny little girl.

Fun At The Park

Matty and Abby love to go the park. Any park is fun for them. Matty likes to go to and make new friends. When we pull up he tells we were are all the kids so I can play with them. I try and take them to the park a couple times a week since we only have a small backyard and they love it so much. At this trip to the park Matty made some friends that were his age and they decided to dig a hole. He told a little boy that came up they were digging a hole to the North Pole so they can go and visit Santa and asked if he wanted to help. They dug a pretty deep whole. When Matty stood in it was up to his waist. Abby loves to play on the slides and if there is swings it's over. Abby loves the swings so much that she want's me to stand and push her the whole time. We are so lucky to have some many parks that are near us to play at.

Abby loves to climb to the top, though sometimes she gets to the top and wants me to come and save her because she's scared.

I Will Start Again

Life has been really busy between work and family my blog has been put to the side. One reason I can never get on computer without Abby all over me and I would get flustered and never get finished. I feel bad that I haven't been blogging since this is how I am recording what is going on and what the kids are doing. So after a long break I am going to start again. I decided that I am going to start with current stuff and when I get time go back and add from the missing time. This way I'm putting up new stuff and adding old stuff. So my plan is this week to add new posts this week.
