memorial day weekend....and yes, i know it's almost the 4th of july already.

sometimes it takes a person a week to recover from a 3 day weekend, you know?
we all had a great time....ben got his pop up sun tent and lounged on the deck in the shade for hours while i got to catch a minimal amount of rays in the fancy shmanc barka-lounger sun chairs i got for mother's day....we even threw ben in a swim dipe and took a dip in the still freezing pool! he was a champ in his little bucket hat and lobster suit!


got my sunscreen mom?? help a brother out! i'm white as an aspirin over here!



chillaxin in his new tent...

we're (ok, this is all on me) starting to get a lot better about bringing him out to public places...ever since he was born, i have been so afraid of him having a meltdown that every trip to the store or the mall would induce a panic attack...slowly i'm coming to realize that for the most part, i've got a really chill kid who just likes to hang and laugh and play. truth be told, it's ME we have to worry about when it comes to public meltdowns. imagine the irony....


so we packed the kid up and headed down to a little shack on the water called Crabby Amy's to see a blues guitarist that the hubs really likes and have the first lobster rolls of the summer which were definitely decent. decent but not perfect, which was an excellent starting point for the Ultimate Lobster Roll Quest of Summer '11....
if we had started the summer off with one that knocked us right off our picnic bench, what would we have to look forward to???


this little boy is the love of my life. the freakin' love of my life i tell you! i could eat him whole. just look at that bald head, will you???


my two boys....just enjoying the warm breeze, the salt air and the tunes....
i'd like to place an order right now for an entire summer full of days just like these...

My ovaries explode every time I see Benny. Look at how big he's getting. He's such a little lover. You've got a great little man on your hands. He loves people and will be great in any situation you put him in.

I adore him! So cute! I'm glad his 1st summer outing went so well. :) More lobster rolls for you now!
