Summertime

This spider was outside our front door last week, wrapping up a bug:

The next collection of pictures is one I’d like to call, “Oh Brother” – Eli was not keen on Charlie sitting next to him and it was pretty funny. Charlie adores him, despite the grouchy glares.

“Get away from me!!”

On Tuesday I walked to the beach with Khania and her kids, Grant and Evelyn. I was not having the best morning (both of my kids were WHINY from the moment they woke up) and it felt good to get some fresh air. However, Charlie was ready for his second nap and we had only been at the beach for about 45 minutes, so Khania offered to keep Eli there with them and she would walk him back to my place when they were done.

This is what she looked like when she arrived:

On Wednesday, we went to a park on the lake with our playgroup. It was a BEAUTIFUL day – so not typical for August, but it’s been such a cool summer for the most part. I can’t believe we’re heading into the end of August already. Here are some shots from that morning outside:

Elijah and Eli had a fun time running around together:

And after playgroup, we drove home and as we walked from the garage toward our house, Eli wanted to play outside for a little while longer, so the boys enjoyed swinging for a bit. Charlie puts his mouth on anything and everything in his path…DSC_2886DSC_2890

I cleaned out our coat closet tonight. Seeing the cold-weather items in there made me cringe… I’m not looking forward to the need for boots, coats, gloves, hats, etc. Thank goodness snow is still a few months away!

Your boys are TOO cute! I love all of these pictures. My favorite is the one of Charlie putting his mouth on the swing. It's funny how happy babies are as long as they have something in their mouths.

I thought the ones of Eli moving away from Charlie are funny because they remind me of how Leah is to Cameron some times. She is pretty possessive of her toys, and also likes to enforce rules on him too. Hopefully Eli and Leah will become best friends with their younger brothers some day.

I Can't stand spiders... but I have to admit that picture is incredible! I think you should sell it to National Geographic.
