we joined a few friends for a little cars viewing party. let's just say we didn't watch much of the movie, but we had lots of fun and ate way too much food! thank you friends!
the initial excitement.
you just never know what these two are up to.
i was snapping photos of the big kids when i looked over and saw this. melt. my. heart.

we spent almost every single day playing in the water and it was awesome! i didn't realize how great it would be to have kids that know how to swim. this new found freedom has given us a new love for water!
we even made our way down to the beach. this will not be something i do very often with three young children. i am not going to lie, this was a tough morning! the kids had a blast and i was pooped. as karen and i were chasing the younger boys down the beach we were remembering the good ol' days of towel laying, drink sipping, beach relaxing that is no more. it's new experience these days at the beach. my mom had a great point- why do they need to go to the beach at their age when they love the pool. brilliant, mom! and this is why she's a veteran at this whole parenting thing. this rookie mom will be taking that advice.
you will find us camped out at the POOL this summer!
even asher loves the water. he took his first dip this past week.
it's going to be a beautiful summer. it's not where you are, it's who you're with!

tell me these boys are the luckiest boys around!
the dasso's had us over for a little bbq celebration of all the dads! karen went all out and we all felt spoiled! thank you!
chris brought a helicopter that he let the kids drive. it was a hit! it also made it's way into the neighbor's backyard. have no fear, chris got it back.
melissa made these amazing cupcakes and i do mean A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. they were chocolate peanut butter. i am sad to report that we took a few home and i ate them for breakfast. thanks melissa!
melissa also did addison's hair up super cute!
last saturday we got together with my family to celebrate father's day. we have some important dads that deserve some big time recognition. we love you!
my dad bought each of the boys their own italian shirt in NYC. they wear them with pride.
