Fun in NJ!

We are in New Jersey at my parents house for awhile. The kids loving being with "Nah-maw" and "Kaf-rin" as Blake calls them. We've been having lots of fun together. I'm going to a wedding in Texas over the weekend so they'll get some extra grandparents time and I get a little break and get to catch up with my college friends. I'm looking forward to it! :) Blake loves Katherine's big mirror (for her apartment)Decided to try to start Evan on rice cereal. He was not really into it... waiting a little bit and we'll try it again. He's growing and super hungry all the time--starting to wake up at night again so I think it's definitely time!

The nextdoor neighbors have an above ground pool and invited us to play in it with their grandkids. Lots of fun!

Tried Evan in their little floaty suit thing... he loved the water!

Went to the shore for the day... it's only an hour away but there was crazy traffic and took us 4 hours to get there! But it was wonderful to be on a beach again... I miss Hawaii.

The tide was coming in at the end of the day and it made this huge wading pool in the sand. The kids loved it because they could play without worrying about waves.

We had a Pampered Chef party for some of my mom's friends and their kids. It was a lot of fun.
You were supposed to use the cutters to cut out jigglers... Natalie and Blake definitely liked this part... they devoured all the jello!

Grandma's pool is quite awesome but now that the neighbors have been inviting us over, it doesn't seem as fun... they're still enjoying it though.
My Dad will be home for the weekend and also my brother David is coming to visit so they should have lots of fun while I'm gone for Kacie's wedding. More pictures of that to come soon! Thanks for all your help Mom and Kath. I appreciate you!
