end of summer fun

I know it's been forever and a day since I posted, but I get so caught up reading everyone else's facebook and blog happenings that I don't have time to update. Always an excuse, I know. We've been really busy in July and August, but it's been the good kind of busy where you hang out with friends and play outside. Here are some pictures from our recent happenings.

Both boys ended up with a bad cold in July, which turned into croup (no idea if I spelled that right) for Andrew, so we were getting a little stir crazy. We decided to take advantage of the unseasonably cool night and took the boys to the golf course to play a few holes. This was Andrew's first time on the real course, and despite being sick, he had a BLAST. Needless to say, I don't think Daddy will be hurting for golf partners any time soon.

I just love this picture

Andrew's first golf lesson on the course

taking a full swing, and a sizable divot, too!
Mommy and the boys--I better get used to this
Campbell using his "whacker wood" as he calls it
Why do I love pictures of them from behind so much?

Then in late July we took a little trip to see our great friends Andy and Bethany. They took us out on the lake for the boys' first boat experience. You can tell in that first picture that Campbell is not so sure about this. He kept saying, "What time is it? I'm ready to leave." But we all had a great time at the lake and had a great visit to Georgia.

looking a little worried about this whole boat thing
it took 3 tries to get this shot, and they still aren't looking, but oh well

Mommy and Daddy on the tube. The boys had a total freak out when I fell off.
Andy showing off his skills
Bethany and I rode by ourselves for a while, and then the kids joined us. This is Campbell--as you can imagine, he didn't love it. But I did catch a glimpse of a smile once or twice.
Andrew, on the other hand, kept asking for more!

Then in early August we took a beach trip with my family. Unfortunately my camera somehow never made it to the pool or the beach, so these are the only pictures I got. We had such a fun time. The pool was definitely the favorite spot, but I'm still holding out hope that at least one of my boys will be a beach bum like me.

Andrew sporting Russ's Batman shroud. He didn't love it which means Halloween could be interesting.
Family shot at the beach--not thrilled about my hair here, but anyone with naturally wavy/curly hair will totally understand that your hair has a mind of its own at the beach.
The whole Russell/Lambert/Sciortino crew
I want to make a flip book of all the shots we took trying to get these three monkeys all smiling.
Lots more posts to come, hopefully soon. Thanks for checking in.
