a girl's weekend

A few weeks ago I went to the beach for a girls weekend with some of Chad's family. We had a good time and it was good to get away for a few days without the kids. Although, the whole time I was sitting on the beach reading a book I was thinking about how much fun the kids would be having. Anthony and Caroline stayed with mom while I was gone. Here is a text message I received from mom:

Is this really the face of a little boy that likes to pull the legs off granddaddy longlegs? Yep sure is.
The first time she sent this text she sent it to the wrong person. They texted her back and said he is a cute boy but who is he? So some random person knows that my son likes to pull legs off animals!
The reason that he gave to mom on why he pulled the legs off is "Nanny I didn't want it to run away". LOL. How does he come up with these things? Just wondering if I should be worried. He has cut an inch worm in half with a plastic knife and now he is pulling the legs off granddaddy longlegs!?!? Oh dear, but dang he is so cute!
Here are a few pictures from our girls weekend:

While we were at the beach we went to eat at Dicks. I had never been there before but oh boy was it an experience. I laughed so hard, it was ridiculous. Of course our waiter made us all hats. Just wanted to share with you what they said.
Shaina: The health department closed my legs.
Melissa: I see tables and poles in my future.
Me: SL_T all I need is U
Kimberly: I have been around the block more times than the paper boy
Betty: My crotch is so dry that my crabs ride dirt bikes
How in the world do they come up with that stuff. LOL. Too funny.

more beach pics

While at the beach Anthony learned to swim on top of the water. He just jumped in the pool and starting swimming and when I said something about him swimming he said "Yea I guess I am." Just like it was no big deal. Now every time we go to the lake he has to practice swimming so he "doesn't forget how to swim when it's snow season and we can't go to the lake."
He also loves to be thrown up in the air at the pool. Charlie and I tried but we couldn't get him high enough so while Quentin was at the pool he threw him. Mom almost had a nervous breakdown and I probably would have to if I would have realized just how high in the air he was. But he totally loved it and he thinks the higher the better.
Anthony swimming.
Good gosh I can't believe Quentin could throw him that high.

If you look close at his facial expression you can see just how much fun he is having.

Our last night at the beach we took the kids down to the ocean to try to get a few good pictures of them together. Caroline insisted on taking her purse and her necklace and that's how she walked down the beach that evening. No amount of talking, bribing, or asking would make her give up her stuff. And we still didn't get but just a couple of pictures of the two of them together, dang it's hard to get them to sit still long enough!

In none of the pictures of them together are they both looking at the camera and smiling. Oh well, it is what it is.
