Game Time

Just a boy, looking for some fierce competition.

Sailing

A perk of the Clifford girls…is the occasional sailing date my kids get to go on.  And apparently, Scout has become quite funny to the Cliffords…so I guess he was on fire with his one liners.  I heard of a few, and now need to talk to him about the fine line between funny and obnoxious.  But WOW is he getting cute!

Turtle Time

This might be the oddest turtle I have even seen…but the Cliffords and Navy were very proud of their work.  It looks like Navy’s head superimposed on the shell… but they assured me that she was actually a buried turtle.

Pippi won the Lego “face” competition…with her version of Grandpa!

These Two

Are legitimately best friends.

DOHO

While I got rooms cleaned and organized, Micah took all four kids to DOHO to camp for a few nights — with the coaches and Cobbs.  To say the kids love it is the biggest understatement.  The kids are like the leaders of the camp, and they have freedom like their mom would never give them.
Yep…they loved it.
See for yourself:

The camping fun ends with the fourth of July….and the Dana Point fireworks.

And the next morning…I deal with the grime and filth that has been plastered on for three days straight.

Crushing

This came across on our family text:

Guess what Dash just said?  Well, Navy told Scout that he had a crush on Sabine, and Dash said, “Well too bad…I already called dibs!”
Uh oh.

Fourteen

Tucked away in our European adventure, was our 14th anniversary.
Who knew time could pass so quickly.
And 14???
It seems like it should be our 30th!

Slacking Off

Look what I caught these two doing, while they were supposed to be cleaning the kitchen.
Slackers!
But cute slackers when they are playing so cute with each other.

Sunrise With Dash

What do you do with a boy who is still jet lagged and wakes you up each morning at 4:30am?

You take him to fresh donuts…

And watch the sunrise, while dissecting every new cloud and color.
