This one here is a handful. Let me just tell you a little story about him. So, Sunday was our last day staying with the Harrison's, and it was Brady Cole's birthday party. Toward the end of the party, I got the boys inside, dried off, and dressed. (They had a big water slide and 2 baby pools). I still had to load some things into my car, so I told Trevor that I was going to shut the door behind me, so that his brother couldn't get loose. I said, "stay right here with brother, and I'll be back in 2 seconds". "Okay Momma", says Trevor. So, I grab our bags and run, knowing that it's only a matter of seconds before Andrew escaped. When I got back in the house, the door to the room was open...my kids were gone. After a few profanities escaped my mouth, the search was on....Nowhere in the house was Andrew. Trevor was in the play room. "Where is your brother?"...."I don't know". I ran outside, and there he was...in full sprint to the baby pool...fully clothed mind you. Well...too late. Soaked! So you can imagine how frustrated I was. I have never been so mad at him. But now, looking back, it was pretty dang funny. He is just B-A-D! ALL BOY...full of life and energy, and he NEVER stops. My momma always told me that I would have a child like Jake, my baby brother. Well, mom...Andrew is Jake...on steroids!!

Happy Birthday Brady Cole!!

We got to attend BC's birthday party this year. I still can't believe he is 5! The boys had so much fun. Thanks to you Harrisons for letting us stay with you this past weekend! We had a great time, and it was so good to catch up. Next time, Rachel and I are going to have a "Mommas Only" trip. I think we deserve it!!

Cutie Patootie!

Isn't she just the cutest thing, that Layla Rae Harrison!! Love this kiddo!

Snapshots on the Beach

Andrew was just as busy, digging in the sand, and Trevor was just a' whining! We stayed out on the beach for almost 3 hours, and they were beat when we left. (Not as beat as I was though!!)

Excuse Us!

We were those special people that have those out of control children that you want to strangle! They sure are cute, though!

Me and My Little Buddy!

I just love this little stinker to pieces!

Layla and Andrew!

We loved this restaurant. We went straight from the beach, so we were all looking rough! It's a good thing we went there, because our kids were acting like a bunch of nuts!

Rachel and I

She's going to kill me, but I don't care. Trevor was our photographer. He cut our heads off in one of them, but I think the other turned out pretty good! We went to Happy Harbor Grill (I think that's the name). It's actually the old restaurant that we used to work at when we lived down there together 9 years ago. It's under different management, but the food was A-mazing!! Many, many memories were made at this place in 2002, so we just wanted to go back and visit!

Here I Come!!

Nice...I turned around, and here comes Trevor charging towards me. He soaked my camera, so I decided that was enough pictures on the beach for one day : )

Snapshots of Andrew

Here is Mr Man enjoying his time in the sand and water. Most of the time, he is in his own little world. He doesn't even study that I'm chasing after him. If it were up to him, he would've traveled a mile down the beach, and never even checked up!

My Boys on the Beach!

Well...I have to say, the boys are gonna be alot like their momma and LOVE the beach and ocean! Andrew loves it a little too much for my comfort, though. Needless to say, going to the beach is not a relaxing experience as it was before having children! I never sat down, and ended up being more tired than the boys by the end of the day! It was still a blast, though. I just enjoy watching their little faces!! They had so much fun in the sun!

Love this Picture!

This picture is so precious to me, I don't really know why. Trevor is definitely my cautious one. This is him testing out the water. Andrew, on the other hand, just barrells on out there, without a care in the world!

Silly Boys!

These 2 on the other hand, are crazy boys. I was chasing them around the house Friday morning trying to get a cute picture of them. They did not want to cooperate. I finally convinced them to let me get some of them! Trevor kept saying, "I'm not Trevor, I'm Mr. Simmons" - not quite sure where that came from, or who the real Mr. Simmons is, but whatever. It was so funny! He has gotten to that stage where his imagination is outrageous...well, come to think of it, it always has been! He's a nut....takes after his momma a little too much!

Sweet Babies!

I think Andrew and Layla are a match made in heaven! They are both a handful, but so sweet. They are both into everything all the time...so busy all of the time. I thought these pictures were so cute of them having breakfast together!
