Soccer…

After a very short career in T-Ball, we decided it was time to give Rec Sports another try.  Yesterday was Caden’s first Soccer game, and it was hilarious!!!  Our team had only had a total of 20 minutes of practice before our first game, so I think there are still some fundamentals to cover.  For example…you are actually trying to kick the ball towards the goal.  I think a good time was had by all, and that is all that matters!!

Grayson was all prepared with his chair and blanket.  It got even better when Honey showed up with doughnut holes!

Caden spent the first quarter getting “limbered up” on the side line…

An accidental slide tackle put Caden back on the sidelines for quarter 3…

The Beach!!

We took our annual beach trip over Labor Day weekend…of course, we made it more of a six day event rather than a mere weekend.    There was only one small issue during our trip:  Tropical Storm Lee.  Thank goodness for indoor pools!!

The boys were able to get quite a bit of swimming in the outdoor pools as well…we would just run out when there was a break in the rain.

The boys also discovered the Lazy River this year.  Grayson liked it a little, but Caden LOVED it!!!

As I said before, we spent LOTS of time at the indoor pools.

We also wanted to get some beach shots, but it was never safe out of the beach (double red flags the whole time), so we settled for the balcony instead.

Here’s Paul and his fiancé, Anna…

And our little family…

Of course there was a lot of hanging out in the condo as well.  Grayson decided that his pool toys could double as a resting area.

I’m sorry, but when did he turn 12???

“Hey Grayson, get in the picture with your brother.”
