Family Pictures

June 12th, 2013 Melanie Posted in Family, Hailey, Hunter, Me, Rich, Vacation No Comments »

We took some family pictures while we were at the beach.  I’m convinced that when you see pictures of families on the beach that they can’t really be taken on the beach.  It was so windy, so all of us had hair blowing every which way.  And everyone was either squinting or wearing their sunglasses.  Anyway, I still think we got some good pictures!

Trip to the Beach

June 10th, 2013 Melanie Posted in Family, Hailey, Hunter, Me, Rich, Vacation No Comments »

A couple of months ago my sister in law had this great idea- we (my family, my brother Matt and his wife Ellie, and my brother Mike) would all rent a house near the beach and surprise my parents on their anniversary weekend.  My parents have been trying for years to get everyone to rent a house near the beach, so it would be the perfect surprise.  Since Rich and I live near my parents we kidnapped them and took them away to their surprise.  We told them the weather report and gave them some instructions for what to bring.  They had a couple of ideas of where they thought they might be going, but I don’t think they actually knew.  They seemed surprised- so either they are good actors and we surprised them :-)

We arrived at the house in the evening and got all settled in and had some dinner.  Then we headed out to the beach.

I love this expression as a wave was coming in.

Hunter loved it too!

The next morning we got up and got ready and headed back to the beach.

I love these little footprints in the sand:

Rich and Ellie worked pretty hard on this sand castle :-)

The next day I didn’t take very many pictures at the beach, but here are some that I did take:

One day after lunch I put a Veggie Tales movie on in my laptop and let Hunter watch it while I did dishes and cleaned up the kitchen.  He fell asleep :-)   He’s never done that before and probably never will again, hahaha

Happy New Year

January 3rd, 2013 Melanie Posted in Celebrations, Family, Hailey, Hunter, Me, Rich No Comments »

We celebrated New Years Eve at our house this year with my parents and Matt and Ellie.  I kept thinking we weren’t going to have enough food, but as it usually goes there was way too much.  The kitchen counters were full of food and the table was full too.

Everyone getting some yummy food to eat.

Group picture… I think Hunter was trying to figure out what was going on.

Silly group picture… Hunter is still trying to figure out what’s going on and Brady is sticking his tongue out at us :-)

Hunter got this beautiful quilt from Aunt Ellie and Uncle Matt for Christmas.  Aunt Ellie made it for him and it matches his room perfectly.  And obviously, he loves it!

We played some fun games together.  Here are Hailey and Pa working together playing Scattergories,  It was lots of fun!  Hunter woke up while we were playing this and decided not to go back to sleep.  I guess he knows a good party when he sees/hears one hahaha.  Someone (fairies, possibly) cleaned up the whole kitchen and all the food while I tried unsuccessfully to get Hunter to go back to sleep.  What a nice surprise.  We all watched the ball drop and rang in the new year together.  It was a fun party.  Happy New Year!!
