Because of their craziness, I've had NO HOPE of them cooperating for photos. Last night I decided to bust out my camera to record their antics for proof. For the record, no children were harmed during these antics.
I wonder why I feel more tired as the boys age? Oh right, because their antics just get crazier. (I swear we do laundry peoples, Alex is just a dirty dirty kid.)
Don't worry, Alex got his fair share of hurt in their play.
I think one of the hardest aspects of this as a parent is knowing when to let them play and knowing when it goes too far. At least on this night, fun was had by everyone. And yes, that is Alex's other dirty sock on Nate's hand.
We're heading out to the beach for a week. A week to play in the sand, listen to the waves crash, and let the boys get as much airing out as they need. I know Jon wants to rest. Nate and Alex want to play. And I want to top this shot, from last year's beach trip.
I might not top it but at least I'll be
at the beach (my favorite place)
with my family (my favorite people)
and enjoying Lindsay's margarita punch (my favorite summer cocktail).
Lindsay's Margarita Punch:
one can frozen limeade
fill empty can half full with tequila
fill empty can 1/4 full with triple sec
Mix and enjoy. Makes 4 margaritas, or two very big ones for the beach.
Happy Labor Day everyone!
