August 2012

August was a busy month!  Trying to end the summer with a BANG!

We traveled to Grand Haven, MI for my cousins wedding - Congrats Emily and Chad!!!
Unfortunately, it was a little rainy - BUT, the kids still insisted on playing in the fountain ...and it was only 64 degrees!

Cousins!  So good to see everyone

In August we celebrate both my mom and dads birthday AND their anniversary...all within 3 days (they were married on my dads birthday)!  They were throwing a party at my parents apartment complex on my dads birthday so Renee and I baked up some goodies!

Happy Birthday Mom and Dad!!  ...oh yeah, and Happy Anniversary!!

So when you have two birthdays and an anniversary, you have lots of left over cake/cupcakes!!!  When it was time to celebrate my moms, she got to blow out candles on a half eaten cake...lucky for her :) lol!

The kids enjoyed blowing out the candles with her!

We cant have a birthday without a family shot!!  Minus Jasmine...
At the end of August, we drove down to Williamsburg for the day to meet up with Jake's godparents and cousins.  We love visitors from MA!!

Jake and Jill at the resort pool - lets just say the weather was not cooperating with our plans - it POURED most of the day - no Busch Gardens, no waterpark, no nothing outside!

Cousins at the pool!  Carson, Kennedy, Matthew and Leah

Auntie Jackie and Uncle Paul

The two hams!  Leah and Kennedy

Fish Tank at Lunch - Nemo was in there!

I love him - fork full of sour cream - HA!  (I would have done the same thing!)

Labor Day weekend Jake's parents came down!!  We went to dinner at the Log Cabin Restaurant in Stafford - It was great!  We left the kids at home and really enjoyed ourselves!  Happy Anniversary Donna and Lionel!!

Toys for Tots Tournament - Renee and Jasmine are on the same team this year (yay)!!  They won three games and lost in the final against another PWSI team - it was a tough loss - they lost their keeper with a concussion the game before the finals...but they did great!  Congrats Ladies!!

Girls Weekend at the Beach

Melanie and Chloe invited Leah and I to a weekend away at her parents beach house in Ocean City!  We had a wonderful time with our three year olds.  Thank you Melanie for hosting us :)
