8th Anniversary

Today was our 8th Wedding Anniversary.  In tree Begley style we celebrated with lunch at the Firehouse.  Later in the evening Gran came over with Gigi's Cupcakes Wedding Cake cupcakes.  They were delicious and perfect for the occasion.  She also brought us a much needed anniversary present - new pillows! Ralph Lauren deluxe. 

The boys shared in our celebration with a little bit of cake. 

Day at the Park

On Saturday we took the boys to Addison's 6th Birthday party at their new house.  Addison has his own in ground pool. After the party Michael and I went to a surprise birthday party for Deborah Frizzell.  Sam and Finn went home with Gran for the evening.  At bedtime Sam found a bunny that he wanted to sleep with.  He found "Snuggle Bunny."  Snuggle Bunny was Michael's favorite stuffed animal when he was a baby.

The next day they went to the park with David, Sharon, Gran, Matthew, Stephanie and Parker.

The Butcher

Last week Gran took Finn to Walmart to buy a toy.  Finn chose a dinosaur for himself and one for Sam.  I don't think that Sam has ever held that Dinosaur.  Finn has completely monopolized that poor dinosaurs time.  This morning on the way to get hair cuts Finn said that Sam needs "a lot of dinosaurs to play with."  I mentioned to Finn that Sam has a new dinosaur that he doesn't get to play with.  Finn explained that Sam isn't playing with his new dinosaur because Sam is sharing.  Finn clearly has a very skewed idea of what "sharing" means.  I asked Finn what would happen once we got a Sam "a lot of dinosaurs" and Finn responds, "share them with me."  ITo be so young, Finn is really manipulative.

This morning I took both boys for haircuts.  I had a coupon for Super Cuts so we went there.  Super Cuts opens at 9:00.  We were waiting in the parking lot at ten till.  I did not want to wait for a cut.  Finn and Sam were the first cuts of …

Bradley Reunion

On Saturday I traveled to Grandad and Gigi's house to pick up Finn. I was so anxious to see him. We had talked on the phone everyday and Finn always asked when I was coming back to the beach.  When I walked into the house Finn heard my voice before he actually saw me.  He came running around the corner and jump on me and hugged my neck as hard as he could.  He looked very seriously at me and hugged me again.  He was so happy to see me.

After picking up Finn we went back to eat supper at Nana and Papa's house.  That night Finn play ed cars with Papa and then slept in the murphey bed with me.  The next morning Finn went to Sunday School with Nana and Papa.  After church we left for the Bradley Reunion.

Finn and Nana arrived at the Sam time as Sadie and Emmy.

Once at the reunion we name tagged up. 

 Sam was introduced to the "baby whisperer"

Caleb and Aunt Tracey held our place in line - we cut in front of so many people.

 There were so many people at the reunion.  …
