And so it began...


Savoring every lick...


She kept her eyes on everyone as if we were going to steal her cone...


Ice Cream coma...


The disaster that engulfed them all...

Vacation... (Pic)

We went on a family vacation with my side of the family a little over a week ago to northern Wisconsin. We stayed in a cabin on a lake and had some good ol' family fun. Enjoy the pictures...
Today we will cover the girls first time on a boat...they LOVED it.
-
Sunset...


All ready to go...


Rogue was told not to touch the fishing poles...using her head and her grandmas finger she didn't disobey...


Playing peek a boo with grandpa...


Laid back...


Trying to keep the sun out of their eyes...Nix didn't quite grasp it.


Wa wa...


WEEEEEEEEE!!!!!


They loved standing at the front of the boat...

Storm... (Pic)

Last Monday a storm hit our area that created the largest power outage in ComEd history...it affected 863,000 customers. We were one of the many who lost power...it started Monday morning and wasn't restored till Thursday morning. Trying to entertain three two year olds without power was an utter treat...NOT. The one positive that came from the power outage...we were able to clean our entire refrigerator and freezer. We lost all of our food which thankfully wasn't much since we just got back from vacation...
-
Our nice clean...empty fridge.

Wedded Bliss...or so they say. (Pic)

Well my sister in law is finally hitched and we attended the wedding...our arms were twisted. It was a beautiful ceremony on the beach of Lake Michigan. The weather was AMAZING...sunny but not too hot...couldn't of asked for better weather. The kicker was that the girls actually did awesome...very little if any grumpiness. I was on solo duty with the girls since the wife was a bridesmaid...but we stormed through and the girls were troopers. Here are few photos of the wedding that I took...
-
The wedding right on the beach...


Not real sure why she was doing this but all of a sudden she laid flat on the sand and began to pull the sand in to cover her face...sorry no pictures of that...I was running over to clear it from the inside of her mouth. Not to sure what went through her head but she didn't mind sand in her mouth. Silly Nix...


Picking through the sand to find all the good rocks...


Sadly this was the best photo we took of our whole family...


Nix playing in the sand...


Nix exploring...


Rogue going for a walk...


Collecting pine cones...


Jade trying to unlock the mystery of the pine cone...


Rogue trying to figure out what makes a stick...a stick.


Nix in a full out sprint...


Hammer time...


Yes we let our kids play with knives...don't you?


After it all we went down by the water to see how they all did with the sand, water, and bare feet...last year this didn't go so well.
