Oh Those Summer Nights

Our nights will be warm for awhile still, but I'm feeling like we need to bottle summertime so that we don't miss a thing. I've written this before, but our best family nights are spent out by the BBQ.  We don't worry so much about eating on time or the kids staying in their seats. When Mike says, "I'll BBQ tonight," it means we're having a family night. The music's on, footballs are being tossed, and the kid's know that they have our attention. Our summer nights are my favorite thing about living in Atascadero.

When taking pictures by the fire the other night I asked them to show me their favorite dance moves. You know when your kids do something that is kind of sassy but you think it's really funny? Well, I try not to encourage it with my attention...or I video it and put it on you tube. When Ella hears music she immediately drops to her knees and begins a booty shake. Then Maxwell copies her. I wonder where they learned that move? Um...maybe me? Oopsie.

That sounds so heavenly!! I love BBQ nights too. ;-)

I couldn't watch the video? Keira is the funniest dancer b/c it's all "ballet" style and so dramatic.

I've seen those moves before ;)

Their giggles are contagious and Maxwell is looking so much older, like a real kid! No more babies. Now its all fun and entertainment!
