Weekend Vacation – thank you friends.

August 8th, 2015 — 4:57am

We have the most amazing friends. Our friend Veronica gave us these fantastic swimsuits from plants versus zombies. And our dear friend Shannon was so kind as to let us have a weekend vacation at her weekend house so we could swim. We are very, very lucky.

My Name Is….

August 20th, 2013 — 3:55am

Today the guys came home from YMCA camp singing (rapping? cheering?) this. I’d never heard it before. But it just shows what dudes they’ve become over the summer. The YMCA camp is so great. They’ve just loved it and come home with all new games, songs, friends along with the expected bumps and bruises. This is their final week of YMCA camp and summer vacation ends next week. Then they go to KINDERGARTEN and they’ll be BIG BOYS FOREVER…

Here are the lyrics to the cheer:
My Name Is XXXXX
My Name Is Teammate’s Name
Rock The Boat
I’m Feelin’ Fine
Rock The Boat
You Mess With Me
Rock The Boat
I’ll Blow Your Mind
Rock The Boat
I Said A Bing Bang Choo Choo Train
Wind Me Up I’ll Do My Thing
No Reeses Pieces
No Buttercups
You Mess With Me
I’ll Mess You Up
Rock The Boat
Rock, Rock The Boat
Rock The Boat
Rock, Rock The Boat

Rock the boat, indeed.

New Years – Whidbey Island Style

January 1st, 2009 — 10:50pm
After being snowed in for the first part of our roadtrip in the Seattle Snowpocalypse ™ we finally made it to Useless Bay on Whidbey Island on Dec 27th. Whidbey Island in the winter is really cool. We’ve had big wind storms every morning and it usually calms down in the afternoon. During sunrise, which you see a lot when you have twins, I’ve learned, the logs redistribute themselves all over the coastline. It is great to see the zombies floating in en masse.

The guys sitting on their improvised high chairs (I know – it is practically illegal to put Bumbos on raised surfaces, but we’ve never gotten more than ten inches from them while sitting here). Useless Bay is in the background.


Levi was utterly thrilled with the menu at the Mad Crab in Coupland.

The guys were real champs at a long lunch at Mad Crab. You can see the Coupland pier in the background. They didn’t have any Penn Cove mussels this time. Next time, though.

During this trip the guys have learned a LOT. For instance, both guys pulled themselves up on this stair within three minutes. Also, Levi has begun babbling. He waited and waited to start and now has more new consonants than Milo does.
