Football Season.

I know I haven't blogged much this month but there really hasn't been that much going on. Well, other than Tarheel football. It consumes our weekends and that's how we like it. We tailgate before the games and then some more afterwards. We never leave the game before it's over. Even if we're winning by a landslide or losing by 50. That's just how we are. Deuce went to every game the year he was born. But he was 3-7 months old so he sat/slept in my lap just fine. Last year we took him to a few games and it was very difficult. He was super restless. So we decided that we would try to take him to the Elon game this year to see how he would do now at 2, since it wasn't a big game. He was awesome! He was so into the game. Sat in my lap pretty much the entire time and even took a nap during the game. He watches the game and cheers when he's supposed to. He has been to every game with us so far this year. Here are some pictures from football season so far.

And here's some video for you.

I know it's dark but we stayed in the deck until all of the jello shots had been depleted and the last of the strawberries soaked in whipped vodka and topped with whipped cream were gone.

family vacay. 2012

We had one of the best vacations ever back in early August.
We spent hardly any money.
We hardly got dressed in much more than a bathing suit or yoga pants/basketball shorts.
We only wore flip flops.
And we just sat by the beach.
It was perfect.
 Rebecca's parents have a house at Topsail so we went for a week. Rebecca and I drove down with Chase, Austin and Deuce. Ed, Daniel & TJ came down a day later. The first thing the boys wanted to do was go to the water and throw rocks and mud. They could do this for hours.
 Rebecca's sister and nephew came over to hang out for a little bit. Talon is only a few months younger than Deuce & Chase.
 All week long the boys had their fair share of timeouts.
They would push, shove, fight over toys, cry and scream and then hug it out a few minutes later.
Neither of them go to daycare yet so it was good for them.
Rebecca and I just laughed most of the time.
 We spent most of our time at the beach. Believe it or not Deuce has never been to the "ocean" part of the beach. We usually go to mom's place and it's on the sound with it's own beach area so we never have reason to go to the ocean side. Deuce immediately became obsessed with the ocean and the waves.
 Like he didn't want to get out of the water obsessed.
Like he had super bad diaper rash from the sand and water.
 You know we played sports.
Is that a stance or what?
 We hung out on the amazing screened in porch.
 We napped on the beach.
 We attempted to put Deuce and Chase together on a mattress on the floor. They both slept through 1 night and got up at the same time super early. Both boys crawled into bed with me & Ed and slept a little longer.
 Daniel & Rebecca took the boys on the kayaks so I could take a nap.
 Deuce had so much fun on the kayak that it put him right to sleep.
I'll let the pictures tell the rest. It was beach, beach, beach for us and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I am missing summer vacation already.
