Spend Their Weekends on the Jersey Shore

Mama had to return to work on the 20th, so an invitation to pretend Monday wouldn't come by joining the Scotts down the shore in Cape May for Father's Day weekend was too good to pass up. We packed a bunch of sandwiches and snacks and our bathing suits and LOTS AND LOTS of sunscreen and headed south on the Garden State Parkway!

Upon our arrival, Luke and Jacob got down to hole-digging business. Daddy and Harper supervised

Daddy tried to get a nice picture with Harper "Wigglesworth" Casey

Paul admits defeat
When not digging holes, Luke ran up and back and up and back from the ocean to "the shore" all afternoon

Daddy and Harper try to pose again...
Hmm...what's Lukey up to over there?

Hey, where'd Lukey go?

Almost frame-worthy! (Ok, frame-worthy for Mommy's desk)
Luke's playin' it coooool
Thank you for seeing into the future and buying us this awesome picnic gear, Minnesota! It ROCKED and was the envy of all who were with usLuke was pleased as punch with himself to join Auntie Sarah on her blanket (if you look closely you can see he has his sunglasses on top of his head a la Mommy & Auntie Sarah)
Luke and Ronan took a stab at hole digging
While Daddy and Harper had it made in the shade
Who's the cutest bathing beauty in her new bathing suit? (Purchased specifically to go with Luke's old lobster hat)
And every trip to Stone Harbor must include a purchase of ice cream from the ice cream guy. Luke chose a Fudgeicle this time....and unlike last year, did NOT drop it in the sand and lose it to a seagull (progress!)

The next morning, Harper was free and breezy at the Jarmer manse
And pancakes and bacon were enjoyed by ALL

After Dinner, Before Bubbles

Just another Tuesday night on Hudson Street. After a dinner of applesauce & oatmeal, Harper was stripped down to her diaper for laundry purposes; Luke insisted on joining her in her state of undress. Clearly, he is the most entertaining thing Harper has ever seen.

Harper has found her voice. She can do this for HOURS. This is not an exaggeration.

Also, look at the CHUB.

(I expect only grandparents will watch all 3+ minutes)

Put Me in Coach

Since our trip to the Phillies game last month, Luke has been all about 1) playing baseball, and 2) wearing his U of Scranton t-shirt

His stance needs some work

That's better

His cheering section didn't mind that his form is still coming together
Daddy was the "thrower"

He's already disputing calls

Instead of gum or sunflower seeds, Luke is fueled by goldfish on the field
She is the happiest little babyPIGGIES!

Some more of Luke's handiwork behind the camera
