We love Summer!!

Chatting with Charli:

*PHEW dat was close (very dramatically, as she wipes her hand across her forehead)
*MMMMM, it's bee-licious and bee-dicious (aka: delicious and nutritious!) haha
*I so hungy (aka: hungry... All. Day. Every. Day.)
*It's a beautiful day in the neighba-hood, it's not waining, it's not too hot, and it's not too chlily (this is one of my favorite things she says! She started saying it ALL the time as the weather was turning nicer in Newport)
*I going big poo poo's, just like Daddy (bahahaha!)
*Yesha-day OR Yesha-year (aka: yesterday)
*Lilly Plinter (aka: Lilly Pulitzer... Sorry honey... You knew it was only a matter of time! I should also add that girlfriend 100% knows Lilly prints... Sad, but true!)
*All da weeks (aka: all the days of the week... haha)
*It's O-Hey, you be Supa Bwave (when she is playing "Doctor Appointment" ((and yes that is what she says)) when she is giving me or Crew a shot!)
*Now take a deep bweaf (aka: deep breath... Again, her favorite thing to do is play Doctor and then is what she tells you as she places her stethoscope on your body)
*I need to take your pressure pressure (aka: blood pressure)
*Knock Knock, Who's There (then I say who's there), an Owl (an owl who?), I don't know, it's just an Owl! (Let me add that she 100% made this up and radnomly says it! I honestly don't know where she even got knock knock jokes because I don't say them! hahaha! She also uses this knock knock joke with using a Lion, a Bear, and a Giraffe. HAHA!)
*When my a baby (aka: When I was a baby.)
*Red light, STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! (about a month ago Charli officially turned into our back seat driver)
*Green light, GO! GO! GO! MOVE PEOPLE! (hahaha!)
*TOP SIGN! TOP!! (aka: stop sign. Let me add that girlfriend will call you out if you do not come to a complete stop either... Not that I have ever done it I mean!)
*Aww poor fella (to Crew and even to Bailey haha)
*OH NO! Look, it's anotha bee-dito bite (aka: mosquito... Poor girl has her Momma's sensitive skin and the Florida mosquitoes go straight for her and she immediately welts up like I do)

Oh this girl... Always making us laugh! 

(*Note: The above picture was taken after I walked into her room here at my parents because the door was closed. Totally found her lounging on her bed chatting it up with her friends on the broken cell phone she found... A glimpse into her teenage years? I think yes... Lord help us!)

Crew's Corner: My Very First Swim:

From Crew's Crib:

It's officially Summer
So you know what that means
Sunscreen, Swimsuits, and this floaty thing

Mommy lathered me up
While Daddy jumped in
Everyone waiting 
For my very first swim

I splashed and I kicked
And I had so much fun
I see more of this happening
In this Florida sun!


Until my next adventure
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Father's Day:

Happy Father's Day to all you Dad's out there!

I want to wish a very Happy Father's Day to this hunk of a man! He is the most loving and kind hearted Father who always puts his children first in everything that he does! Our babies truly are the luckiest children in the world to have such an amazing role model to look up to.

Happy Father's Day Steven! 

We had such an amazing and relaxing day with our family and really couldn't have asked for anything better. Steven got to sleep in and as he woke up he was greeted by the two little reasons he gets to celebrate today! 

Between all the unpacking and organizing there was plenty of relaxing, napping, golf watching, and swimming! All Steven wanted was to spend as much time with his babies that he could as we have already had to say goodbye! We will see daddy again in just a few short weeks and we cannot wait! We miss you and love you like crazy and are so happy we could spend today with you! 

The icing on the cake was getting to spend Father's Day with my Dad! We couldn't ask for a better Papa to our babies and are so incredibly lucky to have him! I think Papa had a splashing day as well...

Happy Father's Day!

Newport Things: The Officer's Club:

Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend! I can't believe our last weekend in Newport has come to a close and we are officially in moving week!


The Officer's Club on base has by far one of the best views in Newport.

We have spent several evenings at the O Club while we have been here, including a few for Lobster Night. Well now with the weather turning nicer the patio and lawn are open for dinner (which is right on the water). So since we are nearing the end of our time here in Newport we thought we would do one last little dinner with our friends from Steven's class (the ones who were able to make it that is). Between the beautiful weather, sunset, live music, dancing, skipping rocks, and good company, it was truly an amazing evening!

 We have been spending as much time as we can (when we aren't busy packing, organizing, cleaning, and everything else there is to do when it's time to move) with our friends here and this past weekend was just that! We have truly made some wonderful friends (and reconnected with old friends) while we have been stationed here! As sad as it is to say goodbye (or 'see ya later') to our friends we are looking forward and so excited to see everyone waiting for us back in Jacksonville!

So thank you everyone for making our time here truly memorable for my little family and thank you for enjoying one last night with us at the O Club! 

Now let the madness begin...
