Two tired boys

The other day I came home from work and running the girls around and this is what I found.
How sweet is that?

Summer fun!

We just got back from taking the family on a cruise. We had so much fun and we made lots of great memories. We took so many pictures it was hard to know which ones to post. Here are a few of the pictures taken on the trip.

Nick learned that when we went back to our room at night there were always chocolates left by the cabin stewards. He always ran for them and ate them all. He was very possessive of "his" chocolates. Lauren frequently fell asleep at dinner.
Nick always had to sleep with his rockets.
Taylor had a tough time deciding which shell to buy.
The girls had a ball snorkeling at Magen's Bay on St. Thomas.
Nick ate his weight in ice cream on this cruise. We are starting to wonder if he is truly lactose intolerant because he never had bowel problems even while eating cheese pizza and ice cream all during the trip.

We were at a beach one day and Nick really wanted an ice cream cone. Chris took him to the local McDonald's and bought him one. Neither one of them minded that it was melting all over them.
My toes with sand on them looked so much like summer I had to take a picture.Lauren and Nick playing Nintendo while waiting for our plane home.
Prior to our cruise we had gone camping. We had a very special treat on this camping trip and a family that we had met in Samara, Russia met up with us. We wanted our boys to meet. We are forever grateful for this family because they helped us through a very tough trip where we lost our first referral, "konstantin". I don't know what we would have done without their friendship during that catastrophic trip. Our trip to Samara didn't end well but theirs did! They named their little boy Mick.
