A day at the Beach...





Friday was gorgeous so we decided to head to the beach. Poor Chris had to study so I took the boys and met Elizabeth, Brandon and Atticus. Sam had a blast playing with the sand--- usually with other children's toys-- and only threw sand at Atticus a few times, we're still working on that one. Liam chilled under the umbrella and mouthed to death anything he could get his hands on. I feel bad though because while I did a pretty good job slathering sunscreen on Sam and Liam repeatedly through out the day I apparently missed one circle on Sam's shoulder so he got burned. It has already healed, but I hate the idea of my two year old already having sun damage. Today was a nice relaxing Saturday filled with much napping and plenty of playing. We attempted a second take at Family pictures as it is much warmer and less windy! I will post them as soon as we get the results which I am so excited for! Then we met our good friends the Grady's at Busch Gardens where we took Sam on a lot of rides... including the battering ram. This gave me an absolute heart attack. Leslie and I stayed with Liam who had passed out in the stroller while Chris and Kevin took Sam on-- and sat much higher than I would have liked. At first it was nice and went back and forth but then it went SOOOO HIGH! I seriously started freaking out-- of course not enough to not take pictures-- but I was literally sick to my stomach thinking he would be terrified and he was mildly. He loved the first part but clung to Chris as it got higher and higher. (Chris is in the yellow shirt with Sam next to him)The highlight of the night for Sam was of course seeing "Thomas" the blue train that takes you around the park(he is behind us in teh picture below but it is to dark to tell), the highlight for mom and dad-- getting the third from first parking spot in the entire park! It was AWESOME!! I know-- it truly is the little things in life! Have I mentioned how much I love my little family. I am just crazy about my boys-- big and little!

I think your purposely taunting me with this perfect weather you guys are having :) You guys couldn't have picked a more perfect place for grad school, seems like there's always something fun to do! Can't wait to come see you guys an escape Cleveland for a bit!

I love how close you live to a theme park! I wish I had one that close. It looks like so much fun!
