More Baby Pics

 Realizing the comforts of being able to stretch out.
 Sleeping at the beach is the best.
 Sleeping next to Daddy is better.

 Cuddlebug and Lovebird always want to hold the baby as soon as they get up in the morning.

1st Day of School 2012

 After a two week "baby delay" the O Academy started the 2012-2013 school year.  Now we do school all year long with a lighter load through the summer but we always have an official start date for the new school year.  The Littles couldn't wait to try out the new chalkboard!
 Curly Bear
 "Daddy, Can you help me get my backpack on?"
 Lovebird (This is the best we could do.)
 "Is it time to go to the library yet?"

Ladybug was sleeping for our morning pictures and then she couldn't wait to hit the books.

Happy Rosh Hashanah

 "Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation." Leviticus 23:24

Apple Picking

To get ready to celebrate Rosh Hashanah we headed up north to do a little apple picking. Everyone had a great time and agreed that picking apples was a whole lot easier than strawberries and blueberries!!!

Last Beach Night for 2012?

Mom Can be Fun Too!!!

So I was feeling like Daddy was getting to have all the fun and go out to breakfast with each kid and so I decided to take each of the kids out on my own. Now it's much harder for me to get out with only one kid during work hours so I have to be a little more creative. I also didn't want to bring the baby which makes it that much more difficult to plan.
Curly Bear got to be the first.  We went to Charming Charlies to pick up a gift for Aunt K and do some of our own shopping and then it was off for some FroYo.
Cuddlebug and I headed to Target to pick out a new backpack and then........FroYo.  Do you notice a common theme yet?  We went at night which made the trip back home a little chilly.  Five minutes into the drive Cuddlebug asked if we could put the top up on the car because she was too cold.  I still haven't taken the other two out.  I'm going to try to make that happen this week.

Finishing Up the Week of Fun

 B.W. thought "The Doughnut Factory" sounded pretty good so that is where he chose to go for his breakfast out with Daddy.  He is old enough though to call it by its proper name, Krispy Kreme.
 We visited Great Grandma so she could meet Ladybug.
Lovebird also got to have a momentous first.  She got to experience her first Cien en Boca and Florecita.  She pretty much just liked eating the frosting off of the Florecitas.  So glad we still have some Puerto Rico connections to send my Grandma these favorite goodies.

More Week of FUN

So we are enjoying our relaxed days and lots of fun is being had. Prince Charming is doing a fairly good job at relaxing and not working and so am I. I REALLY need to get some school stuff done but am trying to wait until the weekend. We are not sit around and do nothing kind of people so I know that saying "no work allowed" means just a little work.
Cuddlebug chose "the doughnut factory" for her breakfast out with daddy.
Curly Bear chose McDonald's.  Considering this one loves her fresh foods she has quite the addiction to McDonald's breakfast.  Not quite sure why.
We went on a family walk.  It was actually the first time we have been on the trails all summer.  The dogs loved it as did the kids.  Ladybug stayed awake the whole time and looked all around.

Daddy got a great work out pushing the double stroller up all those hills.  It was beautiful weather for a walk!
