Marlo loves waiting for her dad to finish his swim.  She jumps up and down and waves her little arms in the air hoping he will see her.

Pony Kids

Posted in Logan

What kid doesn’t love a pony ride?  Took the kids to the Lakewood Equestrian Center- a stable that my sister and I visited often as kids.  They loved petting the sheep, chasing rabbits and riding the ponies.

Logan has ridden this pony since he was one years old.

Simply Seaweed

The kids met up with friends and tried their best to “fish” for seaweed.

We drive past the Goodyear Blimp’s launching pad so often and today the blimp flew over our beach.

Marlo was so excited to see her dad emerge from the waves that she raced into the water (towel included) to greet him.

Easter Sunday

Posted in Logan

Another festive day for the kids filled with colorful treats and goodies, Easter egg coloring and hunting, and lots of good old fashioned fun.

I don’t know what Marlo is snickering about but I like the photo.

What Logan does, Marlo must also do.

Blurry, but Marlo’s expression is so darn cute.

Collected so many Easter eggs that Logan had to switch out his Jeep basket for a good ol’ brown paper bag.

Marlo loved racing around hunting for eggs but in the middle of the hunt she was content with a pine needle.

We celebrated Logan’s 5th Birthday on the race track with fast cars, speedways, and lots of speed.

Earth Day

Posted in Logan

Simply must spend Earth Day in the woods.  We hiked, found a newt in the creek, climbed trees, “fished for sharks”, raced down hills and made flower earrings.

Marlo discovers a new trick.

Logan gets in on the act.

Taking it to a new level.

Feels like we’ve been waiting for a warm sunny day for months!  Well, today was the perfect beach day- low-tide, small waves, and kids that were so happy to be at the beach that they entertained themselves with sand crabs, boogie boarding, sand castles and swimming.  Logan found a sea bird egg and buried it in the sand in the hopes of returning to find a “baby bird”.

Marlo laughing while she watched Logan boogie boarding.  She thought it was so funny.

I love how small Marlo is that she can easily find and enjoy neat sea items on her own.

Marlo put Logie’s sunglasses on and popped herself inside a grocery bag.

It was a sunny afternoon so we enjoyed a quick run at the beach before Logan’s T-Ball game.
