First day! Ice cream party!

Jake Apples had his first official day of preschool! He was so excited to brush his teeth! (They brush teeth at school. We don't tackle such business at home.)

Our Back-to-school ice cream social was a huge hit! Fun was had by all when after the sundaes were eaten, the snake hunt began! Liam saw bats and caught a bunch of slugs. Hoor-barf!

Staged photo shoot blooper reel









You can buy the matching Polo shirts, but you can't make them cooperate.

Cubby had soaking wet pants within a minute of getting to the location, Dylan was in a terrible mood, and Liam silly.

Still, I think I love so many of these shots!

They are a nice reminder of the crazy/fun vacation we had in Ogunquit.

Ice cream


Special Mama Time is a big deal!










It's so important to everyone that we have special time, just Mama and child. Today, Pickle and I had our turn. We lazed around in a gazebo overlooking the town beach, ate a banana and had some tea, giggled and played pat-a-cake and generally made everyone envious that they weren't us!

Edited: I managed a hat trick!

Cubby and I rode the trolley into Perkins Cove to eat ice cream. We watched the charter boats dock and load passengers.  Cubby said,  "I wanna be grown up!"  Specifically so he could go on a sailboat.

Later,  Liam and Pickle accompanied me to the hotel restaurant for a special dinner, just the 3 of us.

The Dino Family Summer Vacay

















Dad, Mom, Liam, Jacob, and Dylan Dino went on a little summer trip to the ocean.  What a happy group of dinosaurs!  The 3 little Dino boys napped on the long car ride up to Maine. This greatly inflated Dad and Mom's egos and tricked them into thinking THIS IS GOING TO BE EASY!

No, no! Silly parents! It is just as impossible as ever but distilled into a much smaller space with fewer rules!

The Dino Family is having a great trip... really.  There is fun and fighting each day but that's just life with little dinosaurs.

We have been to the beach,  swam in the pool, (Pickle's first swim!) ate lobster while watching the waves, we've shopped for toys and minerals.  We're looking forward to flying a kite,  having some ice cream, and watching TV in the bedroom!
