Ballet video update

Mommy finally got our ballet recital video, and posted the clips of our dances so everyone could see it! It is at the bottom of the original ballet recital post, so here's a quick link to it! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Fun at Nannie & Grandpa’s House!

We spent the weekend having fun at Nannie & Grandpa’s house again! We went down for our annual “Dinner on the Beach” tradition, and had a blast! We started with a dip in the neighbor’s pool…

Nannie found it really relaxing this year!

Grandpa made us the traditional spaghetti for dinner on the beach, and Ben loved it so much, that he practically took a bath in it!

Ben also loved playing in the sand this year! He’s getting so big!

He helped Daddy & Grandpa dig a big hole to play in, but Mommy saw it as an opportunity to keep us in one place!

We had a mini early celebration for Ben’s birthday with some yummy train cookies…

We can’t tell if he liked eating them or “driving” them more!

Someday going potty on the beach won’t be so cool, but for now, it’s the highlight of the trip!

We had a great family game of Frisbee, and we were all pretty good!
