We were able to go to Wasa again with my family and had just as much fun as always. :) My parents bought a paddleboard to play on and everyone loved it! Mostly anyways. :) Some Lacey family members were better balanced than others. Even my parents gave it a go!
Couldn’t get enough of my boys in their matching little suits!
Fun family picture! Except why does it have to be torturous at times to get them together for it??? Huh, family?? :) I love how Boston is reaching for the water gun, but not breaking eye contact. (I just accidentally hit the space bar twice to get a period like you would on a smart phone. Ha ha.)
Fun Papa on the beach. “Perfecting” their sand castles.
Boston taking his SUP’ing seriously!
Love the expression below on Baker’s face. You can totally tell he’s telling someone what’s what! Probably something like, “you don’t know everything, Papa.” Lol.
I was not as balance-challenged. :) And yes, we raced, Derick and I won fastest couple. Oh ya!! He was fastest guy, but I unfortunately lost to my lightweight sister-in-law! Ha ha. But I did beat Leah!!
I’m in love with each of the boys’ smiles right before their little ride with dad on his motorbike. Each of them so genuinely happy. Boston’s “trying-not-to-smile smile” is my favourite of his right now. :)
Boston is by far our best snuggler! He told Derick today he was a, “bed bug, because he liked napping so much.” He often asks me if he can have a nap! He especially likes to snuggle up on my couch in my office and snooze while I work. Van’s outfit here makes me laugh, I remember now telling him to wear his tank top on the gray reverse side, and he said, “I want to look like a Christmas tree because Christmas is awesome mom!” Or something like that. Lol. Kids are the best.
Bakes ready to throw his water balloon at Uncle Kimball in the Cardston parade, and Boston sad his water balloon burst on him. My balloon actually connected with Kimball and then bounced right off, dangit!
Why not some fleece dress-up play in the middle of summer?
We spent the last of summer pretty much down by our river. We really lacked in the beach toys department this year, but once we realized all they really needed was their monster trucks and some “ramps”, we were good to go. Van’s been watching these YouTube videos Derick found him of grown men with their fancy custom-built remote-controlled monster trucks going through sand and water, so of course, that’s what Van had to do!
And he also informed us that’s what he wanted for Christmas! Lol. In August!! I said, “Well, just because it’s on our list doesn’t mean Santa will for sure get it. He can’t always get us everything we ask for.” He answered, “Well then I won’t put anything else on my list, and then he can just surprise me with other stuff if he wants.” Ha ha. Van would be the one to write ‘surprise me’ on his list. :) I told him remote-controlled stuff (the video had jeeps, semi-trucks, tanks, you name it) was hard for Santa to get sometimes, and of course he said, “His elves can make anything mom. We’ll write him a letter early and they’ll have time.” Ha ha. Cute boy deserves whatever he wants I think. :) Those YouTube videos MESMERIZE him.
That’s our August. :) The boys also rode dirt bikes for their first time…pretty dang cute. We didn’t have a working boiler for just about the whole month, so the boys also got their “baths” at this mudhole often. :) Love my river!! I may or may not have dropped the term “fifth-generation local” once or twice to others while frequenting this spot with my kids. Lol. Crazy river girl, that’s me!
