I have a serious post to do on our summer vacation but for now, here are some from my phone. Davey has a hernia (poor baby, but doesn't seem to bother him) and was scheduled to go in this morning, but he decided to get out of it by getting croup this weekend, Friday night of course. He sounded terrible. Luckily I barged our way into the doctors office on Saturday morning and we got him the medicine he needed and a few hours later he didn't sound like an old barking seal, just a small little barking pup. The good news is, he is feeling better so he can continue with this yoga moves. He loves to put his head down like this. Now he is starting to get a pretty good somersault. Same day I kind of poisoned Tucker I think by not paying attention as he ate a whole bag of sugar free gummy bears, and later he had the worst gas and diarrhea, just twisting in pain. I really think those sugar free bags need a big warning! But in between, Tuck had a great time with Doug surfing at Turtle Bay and seeing a huge turtle swim next to them and crashing the pool and the slide at TB. Davey and I joined after his nap and had a great time as well.

Friday night Tuck and I had a date to the movies and we finally saw Planes with him. He totally loved it. He looked like such a big kid sitting there eating his popcorn and loving the entire movie. He is really such a good little buddy most of the time. He gave up his nap too! Which is kind of sad but it is kind of nice too because although you don't get a break (or doug doesn't get a break) anymore during the day, he goes to bed so early and easy at night now, 7:30 rather than 10:30. And he woke up for awhile in the night adjusting, but he is doing pretty good with this. He's getting himself potty trained and wears undies during the day and does pretty good with it, and we have a big boy bed set up in the room, we'll see when he moves over to that. Can't believe how much he still loves his crib.

Dad just put in the bench at the backyard shower, which is pretty much our favorite family hangout. Nice right? And the purple ginger coming in is so beautiful right now. That might be my favorite flower right now.

Us hanging out in the shower. As you can see, good times had by all. I love this picture, and how davey is starting to say cheese for pictures, and how tucker still doesn't close his teeth to say his "s" sound, the nice, cheeeeeethss.

We tried gymnastics for Tuck for a few weeks but that didn't go so well. He does not appear to like doing things in big groups. He is loving happy school this year with Tosh, Bowen and Lola, and even told me before going that he wanted to go in by himself, without Daddy, Mommy or Davey and he made Doug stay in the car as he ran into Tosh's house! This is the little gymnastics that they have set up. Pretty fun stuff, I wish he liked it already, all the other kids moms get to sit and watch and he made me stand next to him and be right there the entire time. Nope, maybe next year...

Having some fun at the beach on Saturday in the rain with some friends.
Checking out the crab with Dad. They are really loving staying home with him. He is doing such a great job. I can't believe how much his patience has increased with them and he now has a great understanding of the joys and terrible parts of staying home. I think he's ready for some more adult interaction. But he really is doing an awesome job. It's a great feeling when the kids want Dad instead of Mom and Tuck just says, bye Mom and waves as I'm heading to work, no sadness at all. Yay! And Doug has so much more energy than me, I think if I was home with them right now they would no doubt be watching a lot more TV. So all is well with 2 kids right now. 3 is going to really going to upset this routine I think...
Tuck is an awesome swimmer already. Probably because he goes for hours every day with Dad.
Uncle Jake came to visit for 24 hours. We loved having him here. A few surf sessions, some pizza and play time and he was gone again. Glad to have him for a little bit though.
Dad also is our resident smoothie maker and he does a fantastic job.
Having some more fun at some friends house. They were loving having Doug under there.
His hair was getting too out of control, and by that I mean he looked just a little too homeless, so I started snipping while he was sleeping :)
Uncle/Cousin Mark reading scriptures to Tuck. Nice work Mark.
Tucker can not keep his hands off Davey. The amount of times he tackles, checks, knocks over or hugs or just gets him is ridiculous. Sometimes funny, sometimes not at all. But there is definitely love between the two!
Playing at Waimea with this whitey. Other than that, all is well and we are not ready to have a baby in less than 2 months.
