Fun in the Sun

Well, while we've had a lot of rain lately, we've also had some really nice sunny days and have been able to spend lots of time outside! Here are a few pictures of the fun we've been having!

Our church had a Palm Sunday Service at the park last week followed by a picnic. We had a band that some guys from church are a part of playing during and after the service and Sawyer LOVED it! He just danced and danced everytime they played. The college group also had the great idea to serve ice cream cones which was definitely one of Sawyer's favorite things. : )

Several of my friends are teachers or have kids and stay home, so we decided to take a trip to Charleston during Spring Break and we chose a great day! It was warm enough to be comfortable in a bathing suit, but not cold. The kids loved playing in the sand and building sand castles that promptly got demolished. We all learned how to pat the sand down and flip it over. : )

I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but Sawyer got covered in sand. I don't mean a little sand on his legs and arms from playing, I mean covered to the point that when we walked past people I could hear them laughing at the sight of my sun covered from head to toe! He kept trying to eat it, so it was on his face and hair and of course he rolled around a fell quite a bit. Oh well! I figure that's all part of having a boy.

Here's a fun video of the kiddos helping me build a sand castle. Once I started they all wanted to do it together and were so cute. I didn't realize, until having kids, how much they repeat what you say. Can you tell what I kept saying??
