Flying a kite

And let go of the handle so Daddy has to chase it into the bushes. OH, and let's rip off the streamers tooooooooo. 
That's how the song goes, right?  No?  Well, that was our own special version last Saturday.

A special father/son moment as Mike explains to Will that smacking butterflies with a shovel is not nice. 

The afternoon weather was gorgeous, so we made a mad dash to the beach.  Of course there's no such thing as a 'mad dash' when you have two kids because there are diapers, extra clothes, snacks, drinks, sand toys, umbrella, blanket, towels, and, of course, a kite to pack.  The baby would need yet another feeding and Mike would require a gentle reminder that Will no longer wears a size 9 month swim shirt.  All this for an hour of fun.
Will made a friend. And by 'friend,' I mean they hoarded their toys and pretty much told each other to back off.

Lest you think Amelia was left out of the fun, never you worry.  She's been plenty busy--

No need to lie. That was our first attempt at tummy time.

Taking naps on Dad...
Dear Amelia, Sorry about the cellulite. Let's blame Grandma. Love, Mom 

Wearing shorts!!
Butterfly tank purchased for 68 cents at Baby Gap last January. Best. Deal. Ever.

And just like that, she was 6 weeks old.

Happy rest of the week! IMG_2084

So sweet! I just love all your posts! I was actually LOL-ing over that one picture of your hubby telling Will not to hit butterflies with his shovel. So funny!

Oh my gosh I love her. She looks soooooo much like Will.
What is it with them and bugs? Brendan likes to "kick" them (which means step on them and grind them into the ground), even though I tell him to be nice since they're not bothering anyone. I don't get it. Love you guys!!

That picture of Will and his frenemy is crazy - the other kid could easily be will from the back but for the swim shirt!
