Hot surfer

I finally got some good pictures of matt surfing. The waves were massive today... if you look closely you can see the fear in matt's facial expression on these waves.

Grandma and Grandpa were visiting this week. Every morning Kelty wakes up and runs to our balcony to yell for grandma to wake up and come take her on a walk.

My little Walkie is such a sweetheart. He follows his big sister around all day and does everything she does. Lately he has been trying to learn how to ride Matt's razor scooter. He sees all the other boys riding them around and he MUST ride it too! He will not let me help him, he will not try kelty's 3-wheeled scooter and he cannot do it, so he basically walks around with the scooter crying in frustration hurting himself and then crying some more. 
He also insists on swimming in the deep end of the pool like all the other children. Even though I have let him drown a few times, he still walks straight into the deep end with no hesitation. So, i have put floaties on him and he quickly learned how to swim!! well sort of... its more like he floats and then sputters a bit when he starts to tip, but he does stay above water without my help. Walker is turning 17 months in a few days and he already can do almost everything that kelty can, except carry on a conversation. Sometimes I forget how old walker really is and i treat him like any other 2 year old. There is definitely a special place in my heart for my sweet red headed walkie talkie:) And thank you kelly for taking these cute pics for me.

Mom's day off

One Saturday we(Courtney, Erin, and I) got a babysitter for the kids and took a little trip to NY. We went shopping in this huge dept. store full of high-end name brand clothes for 1/4 of the price called Century 21, then visited a little sewing and fabric shop.
We waited in a long line to try one of the best cupcakes I have ever had at the Magnolia Bakery.
And then finally, we made it to the Garment District or Fashion District of NY... I never knew such a place existed, but there are stores full of every button, lace, trim, ribbon, thread, etc... right in downtown NY!!! We only made it into one store before everything closed for the night and it was overwhelming for anyone who loves to craft. This is a picture inside a store with every ribbon and button you could ever imagine.

Beach Babe

Kelty's friend Bry Bry.

I'm so embarrassed that walker still uses his binky.

I love walking down to the beach with my kids...just hangin out watching daddy surf. Boy it is going to be hard to go back to reality.

Happy 4th of July!!

This year we had a cute little parade for all the salesmen and techs. The kids decorated their bikes and scooters to march their parade route.

This is a picture of Hunter's little bald head. He is just the cutest!

My whole family came to visit us this year over the holiday...Kelty couldn't get enough of her grandma.

We had a BBQ with the office after the guys had a great day selling, then we played on the beach while we waited for the most amazing fire works show I have ever seen!!

I would have to say that this was my most favorite 4th of July I have ever had!.. living on the beach might have something to do with it:) This is a picture of the Grand finale fireworks show we saw right on the beach by our apartments.
