In other news from the weekend - Little Bitty scored two goals during their soccer games. She's proving to be a little athletic squirrel like her brother. I'm very proud of them both. They are happy, healthy and just so darn lovable.

The return leg of the bike ride was interrupted with some firefly catching. It was very exciting and fun...so much so that the kids kept jumping off their bikes in the middle of the street to run and grab another firefly. And then I yelled and threatened them because that's how I like to ruin a special evening. BUT - not before I snapped some sweet pictures of the event with our new camera. Yay.

My Big Boy even learned to ride a dirt bike by himself. I have to add...this is something that I'm quite sure I have said he would NEVER do with my permission. Someone once told me to never say "My kid will never..." because you'll always prove yourself wrong. And she was right.
We camped out. Brother is becoming very skilled at all things camping. He has a great teacher (Daddy - not me). Little Bitty is not too shabby either.
Speaking of Little Bitty, she taught us all a new and improved way of enjoying a pinata. You cut a hole in the top and carry it around, inviting everyone to reach in and grab a handful. This is a much preferred version to the old-fashioned bashing with a stick - which is both dangerous and sad when your beautiful pinata gets broken.

Little Bitty and her two girl cousins. These three are all within a year and a half of each other in age. I see TROUBLE in a few years. But how stinkin' cute are they right now?!!

We left from his school parking lot on the last day of school and headed to Florida for a WONDERFUL vacation. We got to see my brother for a few days at his new house in Naples and then drove across the state and spent the week at a condo on the beach. Blake's family lives nearby so we got to spend time with Zia, Uncle Awesome and Grammy and Nonno. It was the perfect combination of a Team T vacation and visit with the family. The only downside was it took me a good 10 days upon return to get back into a normal groove. Normal being disorganized, absent-minded, one-step-behind... but happy.
Little Bitty loved the beach as much as the rest of us. It occurred to us shortly before the trip that she hadn't been to the beach since she was 2 1/2 and likely didn't remember it well. She didn't miss a beat though. She and Brother spent hours boogey boarding (each in their own way), digging, running, exploring and jumping in the sand. Being on the beach with them gave me moments of pure joy where it feels like everything is completely right in the world and always will be.
When Blake and I first started dating he had a hobby (?) of having himself photographed naked in front of waterfalls (I know - that's good stuff for early dating). As you can see - he has apparently matured and this time just jumped off the waterfall. Our loss.
