Coral Cove beach

We have been visiting the different beaches in the area to find our favorite. On Saturday we went to Coral Cove beach. This one was a little far away, but it had these rocks that were fun to sit on and play in the pools of water. We went to Hobe Sound beach on Wednesday and were sand blasted to death by the wind. I thought we left those kind of windy days behind in North Dakota, but apparently not! We ended up calling it after about 30 minutes and had our picnic in the car on the way home.
Summer's looking for gold!
Hmmmm...where to start?
See how the water fill up the holes so the kids can dig in them. It was a lot of fun!

Mr. Mischief!!!

So, Matthew had a very busy day yesterday. It consisted of eating a PB&J dusted with playground sand, carrying a handful of dried doggy poo around the park & chewing on the toilet brush. All in all, he felt very pleased with his day. Many of you might be asking yourselves why I don't watch him better. I do, like every second, but he is so fast! He gets into things faster than the human eye can see! You really have to see him in action to believe me! All in a days work!
PS-He gets his hands washed A LOT!

On Friday we met our friends,Paul and Gladys & kids at the church ranch near St.Cloud,FL for a rodeo. It was pretty fun. The kids liked seeing the animals, but TJay was really concerned that there might be lightning. It took me a while to figure out why he kept asking to go home. Threats of lightning and all, it was a fun time.
Matthew doesn't care that it's pink! A hat's a hat,right Dad?!!
This black one makes me look real tough and menacing, right?!!
Summer watching the rodeo. Oh yeah, she peed on my leg a little bit later. That was quite fun. She was just sitting there on my lap and just let loose! I jumped up and ran with her to the bathroom. I think that I scared her! She finished where she should have started while I splashed water and rubbed soap all over my pants! I love my kids!! T Jay, Summer (in the light blue) and Nicole Waters (in the hot pink) get ready to try to catch themselves a pig. We didn't have the pleasure of taking one of the little cuties home with us. Darn, maybe next year!

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Happy St. Patty's Day!!
At breakfast, T Jay said,"I bet Jesus is wearing green today, he doesn't want to get pinched."
I hope you are all wearing green today too, so you don't get any pinchies either!
