Here is a phone photo dump of what we have been up to the last month!

I took the boys to build a bear because Cole left his beloved bear on the cruise ship.  It was either go back and make another one or go back Mexico and get the old bear. I kind of wanted to just go back to Mexico. :-)  Crosby also made a cute dog.

Crosby got his first trim.  It was basically just cutting a little bit off the back.  I do NOT like little boys with long hair so getting a trim was a must for me!

Crosby turned a year and a half old.  He is now closer to 2 than 1.  Sniff, sniff!

We attended a squadron party that was luau themed.  It was a blast!

The pumpkin patch is open! It is about 2 miles from our house and it is free so we go often.  The boys love it!

Crosby and Lani.

Playing in the corn.

Cole had his first soccer game this past Saturday. Mawmaw and Pawpaw came to cheer him on.

We got chickens about a month ago.  They are pretty low key and easy to care for animals.

And the best, hormone free, free range chicken eggs. We have been getting about 3 eggs today and it has been so fun to hunt for them each day!

Come sail away

We had an awesome time on our cruise a couple weeks ago!  I will let the pictures tell the story (plus a little commentary from me!).

We are dinner in the dining room each evening at 6pm.

The melting chocolate has always been my favorite dessert when we cruise. It is so rich and so yummy!

We won a family dance contest doing the twister. Cole was proud of his trophy.

Playing putt putt on the boat.

Cole has been wanting to hold an iguana ever since our last cruise when he saw pictures of Jonathan and I holding one.  He finally got his chance.

This was in Progresso Yucatan. We went to the beach their but the water was not near as pretty as it was in Cozumel.  

Cole loved seeing the towel animals each night.

And our room attendant Francisco always covered Cole's bear up each night with Cole's little blanket.

Handsome boys.

Off the boat and ready for our adventure in Cozumel.

Waiting our turn to swim with the dolphins.  The water was so clear and blue.  Absolutely gorgeous.  Swimming with the dolphins was cool too.  We got to ride on them which was neat.

Ready to snorkel.  I only snorkeled for a short time, but Jonathan and Cole snorkeled for over an hour.  There were starfish and sting rays to see as well as lots of other cool fish.

Heading to the beach.

Cole during the towel animal folding class.  He did good!

We had a blast on the cruise, but sure did miss Crosby. I will be glad when Crosby gets a little bigger and we can take vacations all together.  This one definitely would not have been enjoyable if we have Crosby with us. A HUGE thanks for my awesome in-laws for keeping him for 6 days! I know it is a lot of work chasing after a BUSY 1 year old!

Camping Fun!

A few weeks ago we rented a camper from base and set up camp at local park.  I am not a huge camping fan (but I go because my boys LOVE it), but I must say camping in a camper is the way to go!  

My in-laws came and they helped with Crosby and took him back to our house at night to sleep. That made things so much easier.  Chloe stayed the weekend with us and another friend Asher stayed Saturday night.  The camper had bunk beds as well as another queen bed. 

Here are some pictures from our weekend.

Yum!  Jonathan cooked eggs in a muffin tin and put them over the fire. They were so good!

Crosby loves corn.

My good friend Wendy and I.  They spent the day Saturday hanging out with us and then their son Asher stayed the night with us Saturday.

Cole and Asher.

Family and friends.  So thankful for this group of people in my life!

Crosby and Chloe.  

We had a fun weekend!
