I've been having a lot of trouble lately getting our vidoes on blogger, so I broke down and created a youtube account. Here is a video of Luke and Carter laughing hysterically while "eating" their applesauce:

We just returned home from a trip to Orlando, and boy did we all have a blast. The 5 of us and Kevin's parents spent 4 days at Orange Lake and Kev and I got to take Graham to Disney for a day :) We spent the majority of our time in the pool and lazy river and really just chilled a lot. Experiencing the Magic Kingdom through Graham's eyes was truly magical, and we were so grateful to Pops and Gigi for staying with Luke and Carter so that we could truly focus on Graham. The only sad thought for me is that I don't know if we'll ever be able to experience that alone with Luke and Carter ... I guess that's just life with multiple kids. Anyway, I felt like it was a great close to a great summer!!

Graham probably did the Hippo Slide 30+ times

In the teacups ... I love his big smile :)

Graham was so excited to meet "the real Buzz"

We couldn't finish the day without a Mickey Mouse ice cream bar

18 Days

It is 18 days until Luke and Carter's 2nd birthday, and they were born 18 days before Graham's 2nd birthday. Looking at them now and thinking about what a baby Graham was when they were born blows my mind and makes me wonder how on earth we did it!! Those were precious days and I have so many fond memories of them, but I'm definitely glad we are where we are now :) It's amazing how much more manageable things have gotten as they have become more independent. I can't imagine what it will be like when even 2 more years pass. One of my favorite things about motherhood is the fact that while I tend to be happy to pass through one stage there are always things about it that I miss.

Here is Graham at Luke and Carter's age

MH 2011

We just returned from Sea Island with the Hutchinson's (my dad's sister's family) and boy did we all have a blast. It'd been way too long since we'd all been together. Lots of fun in the sun, golf, yummy food, laughs and even a little game of family feud :) Hopefully we can do this a lot more often!!

Laughing together ... what they do best
