Daddy Duty

Monday, February 20th, 2012

Walter was kind enough to take the kids out so I could do an intimate photo session at the house.  Not only was he on daddy duty but playdate duty too!  Noah’s friend (and crush) Adrianna came along to the park for some fun.

There is a dog park right next to the playground and the kids couldn’t help themselves.  They love puppies!

And because it was Walter with the kids, and the camera, all the wildlife was captured!

Noah and Adrianna loved pushing each other around….

… and just hanging around…

Don’t Bowl Me Over!

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

The kids took us bowling this weekend!  Noah, Ayla, Charlie, and Kate threw down two hysterical games and us grown ups got some frames in too!

The kids found the heaviest balls they could lift (most of the time) and went for it!  Thankfully, their lane had bumpers or I’m not sure anyone would have broken 10!

Halfway through the first game we scored a walker-like ramp for the ball.  It definitely cut back on the number of balls that only made it halfway down the lane!

We all had a blast and can’t wait to go back!  It was our first time with them!

Patch Reef Play!

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Patch Reef Park in Boca got a fantastic face lift! The playground was replaced with two very fun sections and a water pad recently and it has quickly become one of the kids’ favorite places to play.  We spent the afternoon with Ayla and Robby recently (which explains her outfit) by request of Noah when we asked if he wanted to go to the movies.  He really is an outdoorsy kid and it makes me proud to know he’d rather play than vegetate!

The “older kids” side is perfect for my monkey!!

Errr… monkeys!

And this giant climbing rock makes a great hangout!

Last weekend we got together with Noah’s best buddy, Charlie, for a bike ride.  Charlie is an amazing bike rider – in he’s incredibly FAST!  While Noah can outrun most anyone he’s not nearly as peppy on two (+2) wheels.  So we’re working on it!

Kate, as usual, marches to the beat of her (very slow) drum.  We also think she may need a “big girl bike”.  Will it help?  Nah, but she’ll be more comfortable for sure!

The only trouble with being so speedy – is the corners!  Thank God for helmets and rubberized kids!  

He may be perfect for the circus on this thing!

Along the route the bigger kids (Walter and Evan) found this gigantic spider.  The kids were fascinated but it was the guys we couldn’t get to stop bothering this poor critter.

Then we headed over to the playground in case that had any steam left to burn.

We didn’t know it, but Noah is excellent at the monkey bars and hand walking down beams!

EVERYONE enjoyed our date!  Thanks, Rachel, Evan and Charlie for a fun time!!
