Then and Now... (the eating of corn on the cob)

Boring to some 
this may be...

Or to alot of people... 

Nevertheless i feel this is blog worthy

Every year i try to take pics of my kids eating 
Corn on the Cob.
I've only missed one year so far. 
(Go me!)

 And this picture brings us up to the here and now... 
They are lovin' the corn this year as well as their mama and daddy!!!
Sorry no traditions started as of yet of taking pics of the parents eating..:)
There is nothing like good homegrown, fresh sweet corn!
Thanks to my parent in laws we have been supplied the past couple days!!!

 A baby is something you carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years and in your heart till the day you die.
~ Mary Mason

 Before you were conceived I wanted you
Before you were born I loved you
Before you were here an hour I would die for you
This is the miracle of Mother’s Love.
~ Maureen Hawkins

As my belly grew...so did my heart

Everything grows rounder and wider and weirder, and I sit here in the middle of it all and wonder who in the world you will turn out to be.

Birthday Brunch...

I love to eat brunch.. 
Oh whatever.. 
I love to
But brunch is always extra yummy and good to me. 
And its always fun to have an excuse to get together for a brunch...
Not like you need an excuse.
But yeah..

So my MIL was the reason for this brunch..
Her and the celebration of her birthday...

I have 3 sister in laws... 
All of whom are my husband's sisters.
He was the only boy.. 

Anyhow so they along with their 9 children came over for the morning yesterday...

I bought these napkins from my "almost favorite place in the world"
Target clearance... I'm addicted to checking out their clearance sections....

I fell in love with these napkins.. 
The "Keep Calm"signs are the coolest things right now...

Happy rest of the week to you... 
And remember to 
Keep Calm

Beach time and family visits.....

It's been awhile since I've been here... 
Life has been moving right along.
It has a way of keeping us busy and there has been no boredom to be found.

We had a lovely weekend at the beach a few weekends ago.
The weather was so not beach weather...
But it was still fun.
We also hit up the Aquarium and did some go cart riding while there... 

 Trying out the water for a little!!!
 Like i said.. a little chilly...
 Yup i was there too.. cheering and shivering from the sidelines(beach chair)...
 He was so much fun to watch.. So much energy they have...

 My favorite picture from the whole weekend.  They are my 2 favorite little people....
The Aquarium... Carter loved it...
Brooklyn sat in her stroller... Very nervous.. She was pretty sure that "the fish were going to get out"... :)
 The coolest thing there!!! (to me) An Albino alligator.. So freakish looking!!
 There's a gopher or something... :)

Silly Sharks..
AWWWW.... XOX.. ;)
 Seriously this little girl's favorite part at the aquarium was the coloring station they had set up.. it was no where close to fish..and she could get out and not be scared:)
And Carter's almost favorite and coolest thing there was riding the escalator....

They enjoyed this too!!!
 Tired little girl with two scraped up knees.....
Like i said, i was there.. And little baby number 3 was there as well... 

Ahhhh it was grand.. 
We came home and a day later we got company!!! :)
Pappy and Mammy and Aunt Alexia!! :)

Coloring with Pappy..
 Posing with Mammy..
 Story time with Pappy (who is a great story reader!!)

I'm having a hard time believing that we are well into June already!! 

More pictures coming soon of our other fun stuff we've been doing!! :)

I know you can't wait!!
