Lunch With Ava and Dumonth Dunes

On Friday before we left for Dumont I met my friend Laila (with Ava), my friend Tenderly and my sister Cassie for lunch. We had a great table where Ava and Mia were able to play on the floor and enjoy themselves. The looked so cute I had to take pictures (big surprise--right :)

Just too cute for words!!

I'm playing shy!

The girls-- cute as can be!!!

We picked the boys up from school about 20 minutes early and took off for Dumont. We got there before dark and found a good spot. We hung out, had dinner and a camp fire. This was a different type trip. We usually go to Dumont with a bunch of our friends but this trip was just our little family. It is nice to have some alone time.

The next day was nice and warm and beautiful. Mia played in the sand, Kevin and the boys rode their quads and the rhino and we all just hung out.

Mia climbs everything and managed to make it up onto Kevin's quad many times (at least the sand is soft :)

Driving the Rhino with Daddy is one of Mia's favorite Dumont activities!!

Another favorite activity is playing in the sand with all her sand toys!!

Mia had a noodle fest!! Noodles were everywhere-- thank goodness for Max and Sadie!

Today was very windy and the sand was blowing hard so Mia and I spent most of the morning inside. Mia enjoyed looking out the window at the boys braving the elements. Max and Sadie are literally lumps by the last day-- they are so tired!!!

So tomorrow is the re-adopt court date. I am looking forward to it. We will take a bunch of pictures and I will post them tomorrow night after the Ducks game. We are meeting our friends Heather and Brian (plus kids) at the Ducks game so we should have some good pictures of that also.

Have a good Monday-- Ours will be a busy one!!
