Ok...this is a "vacation" because it's not really one, but kind of is. Let me explain. My parents went out of town, and D. had a large job to do there. So, we moved in for six days.

While D. worked, the boys and I played. We caught up with old friends that we have a hard time getting together with, and we went for walks. It was a really great time to get away and refresh ourselves.

First we stopped at the our friend's house. E. and A. had tons of fun playing on the pool table. J. and C. also had fun chomping on all the toys!

And Dave worked.....
That night we went to the beach.
This was C.'s first trip to the beach.

He LOVED the sand. HATED the water.
Some favorites from the beach:

I LOVE this picture!

The next day, we went to play with the Sandy's (no, really...that is their last name!). A. and L. hit it off right away and played the day away! A. keeps asking to go see his new friend. It was a lot of fun! Thanks, J.!

When we got back, Dave was still working:
Then A. decided to make mommy work a bit. He found grandma Connie's red marker. He colored his hands and legs. Then, he decided to touch is face and grandma's sheets. Lots of fun.

Then C. got into something sticky and needed a quick hose down.

And while I was washing C., A. found something else he wanted to "wash."
His boat, but he also washed the bathroom counter and the floor as well.
On Saturday, we went downtown to find the farmer's market. C. discovered he LOVES blueberries! He's just like his mommy!
Then, C. went to show daddy that he had blueberries in his mouth!
On Sunday, we went to visit Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Bartels. A. and C. were both taken with their black cat. A. was playing shy with Grandma too.

On Monday, we had the Pokorski's over for lunch. A. and C. had fun with the trains. They both got each other's names mixed up- which was really funny. Hopefully they will get to know the right names soon!

And Dave still worked.....

Monday night we ended our "vacation" with a family outing to Yogi Bear Park.
We started by playing mini-golf. Apparently, A. doesn't really have the attention span for it yet.

C. enjoyed getting carried around.

Then the boys got to go on the go-karts. They both loved that!

They had a pond there where they sell cones to feed to the fish. We stepped up on the deck, and all these fish started to SWARM the deck. You look down, and all you see are tons of dirty fat fish with their mouths wide open. It was totally DISGUSTING! I had to take a picture and share the nastiness!
