Taking The "Sum" Out Of Summer


I actually can blog two days in a row.

I love camp!

But we were actually living life these past couple of weeks. So I figured, I would sum up our time, with some pictures.

So had her gymnastics recital. I had to sit in a sauna hot gym with about 200 other obliging devoted parents from my community to watch where my money went my beautiful first born show off her amazing gymnastics skills. She did great.

I even forced lovingly requested that Hun join us and he did.

I believe Ro and Ate were so OBVIOUSLY "riveted" at what they were watching. Hun, on the other hand...
I am not sure what he was looking at - probably watching all the other Husbands who were "lovingly requested to be there" walk in the door. But at least he is not on his "crackberry", so I can not complain.


Ro spent every waking day and every waking minute with only one request...

She is the bike riding queen.

If you ever wondered how any mother would know that her adorable second child will most probably be diagnosed with "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder" some day, this is it. Besides how Ro lines up her shoes, and makes her bed - just before she gets in it at night, and after she is actually in it ... she also has to match her bike to a helmet and then of course, the dress.

How matchy, matchy can one kid get?

Gotta love Ro.


This little boy turned three.

I did in fact, find time, amongst three stir crazy kids at home and one continuously latched on infant to make a homemade strawberry shortcake.

(I actually edited out Ate's real name from the cake.)

His attempt at showing us how many fingers old he is.

Mostly he spends his time being...


("take a pisher of my GRILLS")

And he also likes being...

...well, I will let the shirt speak for itself.

I mean, seriously...

Does he really need to turn Bam's stroller into a pseudo-car, when his cozy coup is less than two feet away?


And then there is one..

Oh yeah, your life is so tough...

...because you are doing a whole lot of this.

Except of course when Mommy and Daddy are...

...bothering you while we have fun with all your hair.

It has been a highly entertaining summer. And it has only just begun.

6 have shown Orah a little love:
