1. Stinky went a campin'. Stinky (the elder) loves camping almost as much as I do and would live in a tent all summer if we could get away with it. This year we only had one shot for a summer camp-out and it was cut short by un-forecasted and therefore unplanned-for rain. It was still fun, though.
home sweet campsite
snuggled in for fire-side read aloud
who says camp food has to be bad food? this man can cook.
Stinky doesn't like smores(!?) so we made campfire popcorn. As awesome as it sounds
2. After the camping trip we took the sort-of-annual family beach trip with Mrs. M's sisters and their families to the Oregon Coast (my favorite coast):
GoGo coloring with her cousin
this is how I had to level the ping pong field with Ian. Yes, he's using a boogie board
The "big girls" at the beach
Poor Molly hurt her leg right before we left
The whole crew (minus Ian) at the Coast Aquarium
Neither of my girls have cared for the sand...
GoGo was coming around a bit, finally
The fam on the beach
3. GoGo turned two. We had a party.
GoGo got her own slide!
who says you need hands for a cupcake? At least they took turns.
So there. I finally did run again last night, as my ankle finally stopped hurting. This means you'll have to endure more running posts in the near future. Aren't you psyched?!
Laters, and make sure you're enjoying your summer!
