Charlie: “Look, Mommy!  Spiders!”
Me: “No, buddy.  They’re crabs.”
Charlie: “No, spiders!”
They are Japanese Giant Spider Crabs.  Turns out he’s kinda right!

Water fight, giggles, relaxing to the max’in, and having a great time together!  These seven littles, and their mama’s, are my very favorite people in the world!

Toothless!

This kid looses them two at a time!  Crazy!
7.27.13 063
After being able to wiggle her tooth with her tongue and being able to push it horizontally to stick out of her mouth, she finally got the courage to pull it!
7.27.13 067
And she found seven sparkly Tooth Fairy dollars and a note from the TF

Chuck E Cheese

Me: “Hey guys, what should we do today?”
C & C: “CHUCK E. CHEESE!” without skipping a beat!
So, with tokens left for us by the Easter Bunny and giddy hearts, off we went!

Berry Patch

Thanks to the power of the internet, we stumbled across the Nevada Berry Patch’s website, and took an adventure!  We rolled in just as they were wrapping up for the day, so we picked only a small batch of blueberries, but they were delicious!

Adventures at Adventure Bay

Summer fun is awesome, and I love it, and I wouldn’t change a thing about it … except to add Daddy to the mix!  So when he asked us to pick a day to go to the waterpark area of Adventure Land, we were on it!
7.19.13 003 7.19.13 002
We said HI to Toby the Adventure Land tiger (say what???  Weird, I know!), then we were off to the water!  These two = super excited!  They led the way to fun!
7.19.13 005 7.19.13 008
Charlie’s favorite was the big pirate ship!  He and Andy rode every one of those slides, at least twice!  And when Daddy got tired, he ran over to my chair, got all up in my face, put on his cutest cute Charlie face, and asked me to go play, too!  DUH!  YES!  Carter loved the pirate ship, too, but she LOVED the wave pool!  She kicked the waves, slapped at them, dove over them, and swam right up the rope!
It was a day most excellent!  Thanks for making the day uber-special, Daddy <3
