Memorial Day Fun at the Beach

There have been too many cute videos over the past week or so to pick from so bear with me! We had an amazing LONG weekend at the cottage over Memorial Day. The best weather we've ever had. It was hot (at least 80 which is hot up there), but the water was cold. It was us, Jen, Scott, Jackson, Tim, Sandra, Tristan, and Declan. Yes, 6 adults, 4 kids under the age of 3, and 3 dogs. It was nuts! But so much fun! All the kids did great. They all loved the beach, the deck, the water. Ben just wanted to swim, but again, the water was just a little too cold for that. I didn't get as much video as I had wanted, but we had our hands full with the above mentioned.

Ben is talking more and more! So much fun. He's really started to repeat everything. His new favorite quote this week is "there ya go." It's so cute.

I also think he grew. This morning I put some pants on him that I swear fit him last week and now they look like high waters.

In other news, Ben's new favorite body part is the belly. He loves pointing to his belly and saying it. Then comes up to me and points to my belly. Of course he has to lift my shirt. This is cute until we're in the middle of the grocery store. I'm trying to teach him limits now.

We're having a calm weekend at home now. This past week was crazy with having our deck ripped apart and put back together. But NO MORE ASTROTURF! It's so nice. Ben loves playing on it, and I love reading on it! Now we're having painters coming out to get the whole exterior of our house painted and we will officially be done with big home renovations (knock on wood). So, the AstroTurf is gone and no more big red (for those who haven't seen our house, it's VERY red).

That's it for now, enjoy all the pictures and videos.

Ben LOVES coloring!
