Summer is in full swing with Chuck and The kids
Well, summer is in full swing at my home and the kids are up to wilderness and aquatic fun as usual.
We made a trip to KMART which had slip and slides on sale for under 20 bucks and the front yard was transformed
into an aquatic paradise.
We always have a great time and the kids enjoy sliding around the front yard. But, the fun doesn't stop there!!!
In the last week of May, my father paid us a visit to hang out with the kids and I for a few days, which is always great!
The kids had and "Grampa" had some much needed catch up time and we did fun things like go fishing, tell stories, and catch fish!
Here are the kids and "Grampa" at Newport News Airport where Gramps got a very thrifty ticket
from NYC to here for a real deal!
Theresa caught her first fish with Grampa so there were smiles all around.
Of course with the weather being so nice, we hit our favorite beach
in Yorktown...and I must say, as they get bigger, these trips get more and
We have also had our "Shakedown Campout" at Newport News City Park
where the kids ran like wild animals and we did fun things like roast hot dogs and
Me? Well, I took some much needed time to myself and recently 'got back in the game' and
am enjoying good company and good friends. Life got a little too interesting for me (to say the least)
and I realized some patterns I had. With all this time I have been spending making sure the kids
were "AOK" with life's changes, I kinda forgot about the guy in the picture above. He's working on
smiling more; and I like it a lot.
