Where’d the time go?

Well I haven’t been around these parts since August.  I kept thinking that I need to come back but then I wonder how do I get started again?  Just start posting or start with a post recognizing that I was gone?  But instead I decided to do a quote:

Tony told me once that “Women are always on the edge of crazy.”

I replied that “It’s kids that send us over the edge.”

EJ went “Uh?”

and Tony said “Men are always on the edge of dumb.”`

“We are so screwed”

Is what Tony says.


She was singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Five Little Monkeys for the crowd.


She would say “Ladies and Gentlement, boys and girls, I will now sing for you Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.”  And then bow at the end.


Anton wanted in on the action but he’s not quite the singer.  His talent lies in other area’s.


He was loving every moment.



Oh yeah, we are so in trouble.

Family Vacation 2009 Part 2

July 29, 2009 at 3:49 pm | Posted in Beach, Children, Pictures, Pool | Comments Off on Family Vacation 2009 Part 2

So it’s been awhile since I posted the first part of this. I’ve been having some issues with my left leg that has prevented me from sitting in a chair for long periods of time. But I am back and here is the story about the rest of our vacation. Let’s see what I remember:

Day 2, we got up and ate breakfast and then donned our bathing suits for a trip to the beach. The weather was beautiful and the sky was blue.  In true nerd fashion this is the t-shirt Tony choose to wear to the beach:

I just love this picture, I can’t remember now why he looks like this but it must have been something he wasn’t getting.


There was lots of sand castle building.

And feet burying.

The cute little girl of ours…

Decided it was time to be buried.

And Daddy too…

At one point we were in the ocean with the kids and I got a little to far out while holding Anton. So I turned around to walk back out and the ocean mugged me, stole Anton’s hat and my sunglasses. And left me with this (sorry it’s blurry):

That was all the excitement I needed for the day so we went back to the hotel and got cleaned up and went to lunch. After lunch we drove around for a bit and the kids serenaded us:

Then we ended up at Rita’s…


Someone is getting sleepy…

So after a drive and a nap Daddy, Abby, and Anton took a dip in the pool.

Day 3, we checked out and drove down to Ocean City, MD to walk on the boardwalk.  There was some pretty cool sand art there.


And some pretty cute kids.

Who were tired.

So we headed home.  We stopped for lunch on the way out, Anton was over tired and nothing made him happy.  We were trying to get him to eat some of the grilled chicken and less fries, and this is what we got for our troubles.

All in all is was a good family vacation and I can not wait until next year, only with a little less mugging.

Family Vacation 2009

We decided to take the family to the beach this summer.  This was the first time Abby and Anton have seen the ocean.  They loved it!
They were a little tentative at first.
However they quickly decided it was fun! Abby loved having the water run over her feet.
Anton still wasn’t too sure.

But then Anton fell down and got really really wet.
And then Abby did too.

EJ tried to dig up sand crabs.

So with a couple wet kids we decided the best course of action was to go back to the hotel and put on bathing suits!

And then EJ wasn’t looking and got hit in the face by a wave.

And after all that fun we went and got cleaned up and went to dinner.

Which was followed by some treats.

And that was just day one. Stay tuned for Day 2 and 3.
