Tales from the Beach House -- Part Deux

Our week in photos:
Wow! I wake up and there is a kitty in my bed. Felix, you do love me!
Eyes on The Wiggles, hands on the cat.

Felix, you are seriously cool.

Entranced by The Wiggles

My little nudist in training -- she has discovered how to undress and it is fun. Thank goodness Garrett never went through this phase.

Running away from Mommy.

Garrett pretending to be asleep so he doesn't have to eat his lunch.

All my boys hanging out on the couch.

Spaghetti dinner -- serious business, serious mess.

What a difference nine months in age can make!

My little botanist

Garrett's new favorite game: Throw the ball up the ramp,

And run back down the ramp to "catch" it.



The little girl loves to hide under things now. Today was the coffee table. Hung out there for quite a while
Hey, Mom! Like my new seat?

Look at those waves!

Warning: After several months of combat (and not allowed to suntan), the viewer needs sunglasses before witnessing the following scene.
What a handsome specimen of a man! Check out those abs!
Splish ...

Watermelon snacking with Daddy

Look closely -- you can see the juice dripping from her elbow

Watching the water go by



It's a tough life, but if someone has to live it I'm glad that it is us.

Soooo NOT fair!!! I love the pics. You all look like you're having great fun together as a family. And it's nice to know that other children also look like zombies when watching the Wiggles.LOL.

Keep having fun and keep the pictures coming!
Love, Tina, Greg, and Toby
