So I was checking a friends blog who is in the process of moving, and she posted a few pics of her kids rooms as she got them set up. My oldest saw the pics and asked where the pics of his room where. So, I thought let's share. I LOVE touring and seeing other peoples homes. I do a little interior decorating on the side, and I love seeing what ideas other people have had. So, Brock and I grabbed the camara and shot some pics. This is Brock's room. Our "Fishing Hole".

Then there's Dane's "Surf Shack"

Next, Little Miss Briley's "Pink Sugar" room

Last but not least...our PLAYROOM:)

As I mentioned in my last post, our backyard is, as I like to put it, unplayable. Thank God we have a big kitchen, and the kids can ride their bikes around the island. Until last night little Miss Briley only watched and laughed. But, now with the help of the hippo, Briley can join the crazy race around the kitchen.


Dane, My BIG two year old has now mastered the art of pedaling. He is so proud of himself. We were once again visiting Grammy's house (where we play in her backyard because our big 1/2 acre is a death trap) Side note - as some of you know we started our gigantic swimming pool a while ago, and when the mortgage market crashed (my husband owns a mortgage/real estate company) we had to stop the work on the pool. So, now we have a huge 20 foot deep hole in our backyard with trenches for plumbing and electric surrounding it. So, Grammy has accumulated all our outside toys; sand box, swing set, bikes, blow up pool...everything - and we've spent quite alot of time at her place.

The boys LOVE making cookies with Grammy and Great Grandma Chris. Today was Grammy's turn. They made Peanut Butter Blossoms, or Peanut Butter Possum's as Brock calls them. What a yummy mess they made!

Hanging with Daddy

You've gotta love the dramatic difference in color with Bobby and Dane!:)


First there was one... now there are two...tony tails that is:)

Water fight

Another week... more heat. So again we headed out back for a little water fun - I think Dane took the brunt of the assaults.

Another first...First tony (aka pony) tail

Briley's hair is finally long enogh to get into a pony tail - a baby pony tail. She was quite proud of herself.


Wednesday was Brock's first day of school. Last year he went to preschool two mornings a week - he ABSOLUTELY LOVED it. This year he gets to go three mornings a week. He loves school and is really excited about his new teachers.


Our little Miss Briley is almost walking. On Monday she took her first steps - three to be exact. I don't think I'm ready for her to walk yet. The boys didn't walk until they were 12 months ( I think it was because they were so chubby:) But, little skinny miny Briley doesn't have that problem so looks like she's going to be walking at 10 months. Things are happening way too fast - it doesn't seem like she should even be crawling yet - I swear it seems like she was just born!
