Grayton Beach 2010

It was another great year at Grayton Beach! It was a little different this year since Tucker was just born...but it was great! We had so much help with all 3 munchkins! Hannah and William LOVED the beach!!! It was definitely their best year to date! I had a lot of fun with family but I didn't get to have a true beach experience. You can't swim for 6 weeks after having a baby so it was kind of torture watching everyone else swim. I was able to go down to the beach a couple of times but it just wasn't the same. I am so glad we went though and Tucker even got to go down to the beach a few times! I am definitely looking forward to next year already...
I chose a few pictures to share... OK, ok, its actually a ton but I couldn't narrow it down!
To start out the week, we got to experience Grayton at its finest during the 4th of July parade! Fun times were had by all...

Graham and Audrey

I think we can all guess who was the princess of the parade... :)

The kids had so much fun in the water! There is a little lagoon that sometimes feeds into the ocean near our house(s). It is the kids favorite place to play. The water is brown since its a mix of fresh water and salt water. Hannah affectionately refers to it as sweet tea and often asked to go play in the sweet tea... William loved to do belly flops in the water. He literally would stay in there for hours! Hannah braved the actual ocean a few times with Jason but William preferred the "sweet tea". He wasn't too sure of the big waves!

I was laughing to myself when going through these pictures. I wasn't down at the beach the majority of the time and didn't take many of these pictures so I don't know exactly what was going on but Hannah seems to be running in the majority of her pictures...

Tucker's first trip to the beach!!

Some more good times

sweet Audrey!

Happy Birthday William!!!

My little boy turned 2 on Saturday... Where is the time going? He got to celebrate by spending all day in the car driving home from the beach! Good thing he is still too young to know the difference! Aunt Amy baked him a cake to celebrate Friday night and he was serenaded pretty much all day Saturday with the Happy Birthday song. He was loving it!!
So sorry for the lack of updates recently. We have been busy busy bees! We took off last week to Grayton beach with 21 other members of my family. We have a blast but the beach deserves its own post... Hopefully it will happen soon but if it doesn't its because this week I am working to put together William's Birthday party which will be at our house this Saturday...ready or not! :) Its a Nemo party, of course! :)

I'm sure there will be full Birthday coverage sometime next week!

William had his 2 year appointment at the pediatrician yesterday. Hes still my little scrimp! He is still hanging out in the 3% for weight. He is 71% in height and 99% in head circumference. Doctor B is still not worried about him at all. He "wears" it well and eats plenty...its just his metabolism! Ladies, its OK to be jealous!

The rest of us are doing well. Tucker has been sleeping pretty well. He usually gives me a 4-5 hour stretch to kick the night off and then hes every 3 hours until we are up for the day. Last night he had a rough, gassy night which has led to an unproductive day for me today. Lets hope he doesn't keep that up! He has been feeling good most of today so hopefully it was just a temporary thing!
Hannah is with my Mom and attending an Art camp during the day this week. She is having a lot of fun but I miss her...

Baby is crying, gotta go but expect some more updates soon! :)
