I thought it would be neat if we all shared what we have been up to this summer and what we have planned to do before it is over! Admin and I have been crazy busy but mostly good busy. Me and a girlfriend took the kids to an amusement park in conn. called Lake Com pounce that was fun and we had a great day but the ride was not so good, we thought it would be about 3 hours and it ended up taking us 5 We had admins sister and her husband, 3 kids along with his mom stay with us in the beginning of July and that was a blast. His sister lives in Indiana so we only see them once a year. The kids are 6, 4 and 18 months so with our youngest being 12 having little ones around was a lot of fun. (Not that we are thinking about more, we are almost home free) just enjoying spoiling them was great! We cooked on the grill a lot and hung out by the pool. One day we took them to the Jersey shore the kids never saw the ocean and they just loved the boardwalk. I did another day trip to the beach with my girlfriend and all the kids, had a nice day and the kids stalked the Jersey shore mtv house. Spent one night in the er with our son because he cut himself and had to get 6 stitches. Have been spending a lot of time in the pool and trying to work as least as I can. The kids have had friends sleeping over a lot, I don't mind that because I know where they are. In August we are headed to ocean city Maryland for a week, my dad and little brother (16) and his mom are going with us. We love it there and always have a blast. I took Leo in the pool with me, I was floating on a raft and put him on my lap, well lets just say it was not his favorite but he dealt with it. Hope you all are enjoying your summer, and we would love to hear all about it! We also want to go to the zoo one of these not so hot days and take a day and walk around NYC.
