Delaney finally takes the plunge

If you check out the video in the post below this one, you may notice that Delaney was standing on Bryan's legs... to avoid getting wet. All week long she was terrified of the ocean; she insisted on being held and preferred to spend her time at the beach playing in the sand or sitting in her little pool that we brought. However, today Bryan worked his magic and convinced her that the ocean is FUN!!!! I love this picture of the 3 of us... an action shot for sure! Hooray, Daddy. Hooray, Delaney!

Emma Hope loves the beach!

A perfect summer day at the beach!

Yesterday was literally a perfect beach day. The sky was blue, the ocean was warm and clear, the waves were big, and everyone had a wonderful time in the sand and surf.
Our nephew Christopher loves the beach as much as Emma does. "Yeah!"Delaney and Sarah playing in the sandAnd of course, Hannah and JoJo are having a blast. It's so cute to watch them run into the crashing waves together, and also to see them sitting quietly in chairs!

Monday at Missy's

So we all went to Missy and Joe's shore house for dinner on Monday. It was mainly a Happy Hour of sorts, with some ham and side dishes thrown in for good measure. Their house is only three blocks away from ours.

JoJo and Hannah

These two kids are just too cute together. They have so much fun and make us all laugh with their antics. In these pictures, they were sitting in a chair together on the porch...
...being silly. JoJo was trying his best to kiss Hannah. She wanted no parts of it!

Finally some family time with the Guarnaccias!

JoJo and Joe! Kissing cousins
the happy couple


What is that, you ask?
A bald head?
Perhaps a child in a cooler? No....
...can't be!
can it?
Oh, my!Emma is such a good sport.

More boardwalk pics!

I have a lot of random pictures from the boardwalk that I am sorting through. This one below makes me laugh... my sister and my husband on the old-fashioned car ride! Sarah and Delaney were on there, too, but it's hard to see them. Hannah and Bryan went on this ride last year... so this year I got a turn.
I love this picture of JoJo and Hannah. So cute!and of course I had to take many pictures of baby Christopher... he is such a lovebug.

Summer nights on the boardwalk

So my sister Missy and I are finally getting to hang out... all week long! With six kids between us, it sure is a lot different than when we were younger, but our kids love each other and it's fun to watch them when they are together. Sarah and Delaney are constantly hugging! It's so cute!

Emma walks! (sort of...) AND, 10,000 blog hits!

I honestly don't know which I am more excited about... that Emma is becoming more and more mobile every day, or that today "Another Day, Another Adventure" got its 10,000th hit on Blogger! woo-hoo! Anyway, here she is. It won't be long before she is running around the house with her two sisters. Emma, you GO girl.

Chillin' in the high chair

Just having some fun together...

Hannah and Delaney disappeared into Hannah's bedroom for quite awhile this afternoon. When they came downstairs, they were "twins", sporting foam visors and big bags they were using as purses. I think it's funny that Delaney's purse was a Halloween bag with reflective strips... notice how they lit up with my camera flash! And below, Emma chewing on an empty marker box.

Friday afternoon fun... and farm tour

It's not very often that Delaney and Mommy get some time alone together. On Friday we finally did... and took full advantage of a gorgeous afternoon, a Jeep with no top, and a bucolic view of two of our favorite upper Bucks County farms.

This is a private barnyard that we drive by frequently. We love to stop and wave to the "horsies" and listen to the turkeys gobble hello to us. It cracks us up that they reside together.

Delaney was very concerned that this guy had somehow gotten out of the pen. He looked a little perplexed, too, and kept making funny noises... "help me! help me!"

Haha, Mom, that's funny!!

We stopped at Tabora (remember this post? And this one?) for some fresh sunflowers and to visit our friends, the chickens. Of course Delaney was terrified and clung tightly to my neck. But those chickens sure weren't afraid......they came right over and said hello.

Too bad Hannah wasn't around to chase them!

Hannah (Montana) dresses up!

This afternoon Hannah asked me to take her picture, since she was dressed to the nines in her Hannah Montana dress and leggings. I happily obliged.
Check out all the "jewelry"-- she had a ring on every finger! I think I am starting to miss those Cinderella dresses...Here is our baby girl in the same chair 5 years ago. (sniff! sniff!)

Lucky day

This afternoon Hannah and I were able to go out cruising in the Jeep. We went to Dairy Queen and, lo and behold, they had Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mint blizzards available! While we were eating, a lady bug landed on my leg. They are a symbol of good luck, and it was our lucky day indeed. (Bryan said that we should've offered the girl behind the counter $5 for a box of Thin Mints. Not a bad idea, since we've all been going through withdrawal!)

Look out below!

Our baby girl is certainly on the move. While Emma was playing in the playroom this afternoon, I ran upstairs for a minute. This is what I saw when I returned:

Whoa! Where did you come from?
Good thing Mommy has her camera attached to her hip at all times.Action shot of Emma wiping out a bit... and still smiling!
