"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

First beach trip of the year!

The weather is perfect beach weather right now and we headed for Ormond-by-the-Sea after church Sunday. It was a beautiful day out!
 The boys couldn't wait to dig in the sand and build sandcastles. They love the beach!
 Leave it to our little animal catcher Tanner to find a crab and catch it! Thankfully it's pincher claws fell off in the process of being attacked by Tanner!
 We had a relaxing afternoon just hanging out on the beach, the boys loved boogie boarding and playing in the ocean waves.
 Carson even did a little "surfing"!
After a couple of hours of fun in the sun, we went across the street to eat seafood for dinner. 
 A perfect family day!

Teddy Bear Triathlon 2013

We were excited to be apart of the Teddy Bear Triathlon at CCC again this year! The boys were ready to race!
 Hannah, Tanner, and Carson warming up before the start line!
 They always start off the triathlon with a prayer. Love this sweet boy!
 The 2 year old age group went first. Tanner was ready to go!
 Riding through the water part before crossing the finish line!
 He was so excited to show Hadley his gold medal!
 Then it was the 3 year old division. Hannah Grace got a new princess bike and was ready to show off her skills!
 Waving to her fans!
Then it was the 4 year old division. Carson took off at the start line and ran so fast! 
 Then he found his bike and booked it around the course.
 He was the first one to cross the finish line!
 Number 1! Way to go buddy! Maybe he's following in Mommy's footsteps of racing!
Fun morning with our school family!

We love T-Ball!

A lot of our time has been spent at the ball field lately, and we LOVE it! The games are so much fun to watch and be apart of, and the best part is that Carson loves it and looks forward to every game!
 Matt is so patient with the kids and loves being so involved with Carson's first sport! Carson has really been getting some awesome hits!
It could be because this little cutie is his BIGGEST fan! She makes up cheers and yells for Carson and Uncle Matt the whole time! 
Our littlest Cardinals fan! 
 Ms. Nadia, Carson's preschool teacher, surprised him at one of his games. Carson was thrilled to see her in the stands and kept waving at her! 
2 of our other players on our team are from Carson's preschool class too, and Mac was happy to see Ms. Nadia too! Unfortunately their other classmate Brodey was sick at this game. Ms. Nadia is so sweet, and we were so appreciative that she loves Carson so much that she came to his game! 
 Brooke, Ali, and Ryder came out to support too one night! They are all getting so big!

Preschool Art Fair

Our preschool does an art fair every year. They close school 2 hours early so that parents can come and participate in several different art activities with their kids. The teachers set up different stations of  art fun!
 Carson and Tanner loved making bird feeders. They painted toilet paper rolls with syrup, then rolled it in birdseed.
 The favorite activity of the day was making the Very Hungry Caterpillar using fruit loops and fruit snacks.
 That art project didn't make it home in our to-go bag. They were eaten up!
 TT sure loved the stamp painting!
 And Carson got his very first tattoos! 
Love these fun activities at our school!

Dine-In Movie Theater

We took the boys to see the movie The Croods at the dine-in movie theater at downtown Disney! It was our first dine-in movie experience and it was so much fun!
You pick out a table and you are served and waited on just like a normal restaurant. 
 The food was delicious, and the boys did great! Here's what Tanner pretty much looked like inbetween bites! :)
 After the show, we walked around downtown Disney. Carson loved the lego dragon.
 Daddy and the boys being silly by the T-Rex restaurant.
 We can't visit downtown Disney without hitting up my favorite ice cream place, Ghiradelli!
 Would you like some ice cream with those sprinkles Tanner?!
 Then it was off to the train and carousel rides! "Choo-choo!!"
 Carson chose the spinning seat instead of a pony. Lucky Daddy!
 Sweet boy!
