Eve of Halloween!

One more fun pic from the weekend of the grandkids. Amanda spent most of the weekend playing on these stairs.

Today was Nathan's Halloween Party. I went to volunteer, and loved watching him interact with his class. He has his own personality and his teacher is WONDERFUL with him. He has some sweet and fun friends.

With the schedules all wonky from Daylight Savings, and being on vacation all weekend... I decided to indulge the late naps, and we went to see a late movie. Amanda was blown away by the big screen. We ate dinner in front of the big screen, and it was a fun night. A big change of pace from our normal evenings. It was a great reminder that I need to take advantage of our fairly flexible schedule. It won't always be like this.

Beach Beach Beach!!

Here's our Beautiful Butterfly! We went to a little Halloween Party with the kids.

Nathan loved being a giraffe, but had a camera shy moment!

We spent the weekend with my family celebrating these guys 45th Anniversary in Newport.

Lots of time at the Beach, the kids were EXHAUSTED at the end of the day. Nathan misses his "friends" (cousins). He keeps asking if we could go back to the beach and stay there for "lots of tommorrows."

Look at this sweet family. This is my brother and his family. It's wild to see my brother as a dad, but he's a great father.

Girls Weekend Rocks!!

I love these girls! We've been friends since the dawn of time... or possibly just the last 7 years. they know me better than I know myself and I adore each one of them for very different reasons. Here we are happy and exhausted during the last few minutes of our girls weekend. Three years ago Brooke moved away (I bring this up only because I miss her terribly, and still can't believe she moved!) Brooke brought her brand new baby, Elaina. She's a Beauty! And we were joined by Steph's sister Annette and her new baby Lincoln. These kids are adorable.
Annette is a fun addition to girls weekend and is hysterical. She wanted us to take this pic.
I swear I just want to buy some commune somewhere and all live together all the time. I think it would such a blast.
