A fun 20 hours (even though it didn't involve a lot of sleep)

We had a fun Friday and Saturday morning with the McQueen's and the Bauman's at the Bauman's beach house in Treasure Island (not as crazy as it sounds). We went clamming, looked for crabs and Liam decided to head into the water in his tennies and jeans. It was great. Liam was the most excited about riding in a canoe. He asked us to call him Captain Butterworth. Jesse bought him this hat at the Army Surplus store...

(That's Sim, Jed and Liam from left to right)

Here are Sim, Liam and Jed checking out the buckets of clams that we collected. We had to strip off Liams pants and shoes after his little dip in the water. Awesome.

Josh McQueen and Jesse decided to take the boys out on the canoe. It was a daring move on their part. Fortunately the boys were mildly terrified and stayed put. Captain Butterworth called for his mommy at one point but regained control rather quickly.

We headed to a Fireman's Pancake Breakfast after a night with very little sleep. It was a charming time and the balloon animal making clown was a surprising hit with the kids. Liam requested a balloon sword and Sim requested a fishing pole.

Even Finn enjoyed the breakfast and felt very cool in his fireman helmet. I was very tired but managed to put a little make up on.

Ok. Turn your computer or head to the side. (Neely sent these through and they came through on their side.) Liam in the passenger seat of the fire truck. He thought it was the coolest. You can tell by the look on his face.

The cuties in front of the fire truck. We headed back after this. We had a great time!

How fun! We didn't get a chance to make it to the Sound this summer before we moved. At least we know where to go now when we come back for a visit.
I like the pic of the kids and the dads in the canoe...priceless!
