Summer shots

I have a couple of "real" blog posts about life with a toddler + twinfants rolling around in my head (with actual! thoughts! and! words!), but until I can find a moment to focus and type them out, here are a few pictures to distract you.

Our smiling Spartan.

Grandma's constant accessory, a child (or two).

After two years of longing, I finally designed my own custom BabyHawk carrier. Or a "Chicken Hawk," as DH calls it. Go away boy, ya bother me!

My friend Allison is visiting from Wisconsin for a week. It's awesome spending time with her, and she really has a gift with the kiddos! We force allow her to hold the babies for most of the day.

Peanut prepares to make his move on Sarah, the little sister of Bean's girlfriend Em. He grabbed at her leg and she bonked him in the face, while Twin A slept through the entire playdate. Behold, the future.

Yesterday, DH and Allison and I took the three boys to Alki Beach. It was a gorgeous day! We picnicked under a tree and gazed at the city across Puget Sound.

The twins mercifully slept for much of the outing, but they did wake long enough for a double diaper change and to pose in their cute crabby outfits on our awesome new picnic blanket from Kohl's.

Bean was asleep before we had even loaded the twins into the car.

Twin A's double line of defense: his killer good looks and a strong arm.

These'll tide me over until you can get to the Real Words.

But they have a lot to live up to!

Hasn't the weather just been gorgeous?
Those BabyHawks are so cute. I'm going to have to keep those in mind if we ever make Potato a big sister.
I love that your little boy is already making his moves. ;) Watch out world.

The pictures you post are always so beautiful. I was laughing when you talked about the playdate. Yep, there sure is a trend here!

The trio is cute as ever.

P.S. Pardon me, if I am crossing a line, but I guess I should not let the compliment pass. I think Grandma looks awesome!
