Afternoon Showers

"Mom, mom, mama, hey mom, MOOOMMM, mommy mommy, mom, mom, mom, hey mom, MAMA, mom, mom! What can we do now? MOMMMYY where are you? What should we do? MOM?!!"

I can faintly hear something as I hide in my room, in the bathroom, in the closet and eat Easter egg candy.  Surely they can't be calling for me after a whole 27 seconds of sneaking upstairs.  I think Charlie is going to get a nice text message in a few… just wondering your ETA, we are all patiently waiting for your arrival.

Happy Easter!

The Easter bunny came to our house.  Although lucky for me neither of these guys really get what in the heck the Easter bunny does or is or why he is not outside hiding eggs.  And after all these years I don't really get it either.  

But he brings Tah-heels hats and mom lets us poor jelly beans on our oatmeal, so what's not to like?

An instant classic, dressed in our Easter Sunday best.

Sweet Carinci cousins picture, we should probably give it another shot next year.

'Spring' Break

We rented a condo for a few days and headed down to Carolina Beach for a little 'Spring Break,' pre-baby, pre-new store opening vacation.  We went with Unc, Brittni and baby Brooklyn and my parents and Aunt Nat came to visit / entertain / baby-sitt!  It was super cold and windy which was unfortunate for those who were looking forward to seeing me in my bikini.  Despite the weather we all had a really good time.  I am already looking forward to heading back this summer with 3 children, it is sure to be relaxing...  1 month count down to baby boy #3 is on!

Up and Away.  Our beach 'hour.'  Jackson loved the kite flying.

My stud muffns.

My goof troop. 

Sweet morning snuggles with 'BABBYY BRICKLYNN.'  Nash is slightly obsessed with her.  

Nash is serious about his ball playing and even more serious about his stance.  We did not teach him this.  The boy does not miss a beat.  Watch what you say around him.

Prepping for Easter!

Fun at the aquarium in the wind tunnel with Unc!

And the best part of the vacation…  Chuck E Cheese in Wilmington with Tat, Will and Nat.

Just some morning reading of 'I'm a Big Brother.'  Nash's time of being the youngest is quickly ticking away.

Birthday Daddy!

Happiest of birthdays to the best dad around.  Seriously, I have no idea what we would do without you.  And you look ridiculously good looking doing it!  Rock on dad life.  We love you!

National Siblings Day

Did you know yesterday was National Siblings Day?  Who knew there was such a thing.  With social media you are sure to never miss a made-up holiday again!  In honor of this very special day, here are a few iPhone pictures of what these brothers have been up to this week.

Nicely 'playing together' while mom gets ready...

Got to pick a little treat for being so good while running errands.  Treat of choice, a donut the size of their head, duh.


Their favorite spot, The Children's Store!

Baseball break to collect some worms.

Plotting with water balloons.  

The giddy anticipation of cookie decorating!

Flash back Friday love from about 2 years ago.

Bunk Beds

We have new 'big boy' bunk beds over here!  We are 1 out of 4 nights in everyone sleeping through the night.  I am going with 'one is better than none.'  Jackson loves them and of course loves sleeping on the top bunk.  Nash loves them and of course loves getting out of the bottom and roaming around the room when it is time to go to bed.  Can you tell I long for some good hard sleep around here?
