Vacation Journal - Balboa: Day Three






a beautiful beach day with the speier family...








pudge and maisie trying to decide if they made enough pasta...

our resident photographer was at it again...


when we are at g.g.'s beach house we have a rule about no food in the tv room and after every meal you have to wash your hands (and in finn's case your whole face) before you can go in there.  this is always hard for finn since jack and lucy always seem to finish before him, get cleaned up and start playing in plain site of him, while finn is still attempting to finish his dinner.  this night finn was loving dinner, especially the sausage.  he grabbed two pieces of sausage ("one for each hand" is a common phrase in finn's world) and tried to get down from the table.  we reminded him of our rule and that when he was done eating, we would help him get cleaned up and then he could go play.  he looked at the sausage and then at jack and lucy and then back at the sausage.  immediately he shoved both pieces of sausage into his fat little cheeks and tried to say (at least, i think it is what he was saying), "all done.  all done."  

and then pete's dance party turned into a wretling/tickling/hugging/tackling game of some sort.  

you know life is good when one of your kids (lucy) comes up to you and says, "can i please go to sleep?"  yes.  yes, of course.

I love the Finn/Kateri love...and just to make it clear to the burchjerks blog readers (and CPS) I in no way approve of the baby balancing!
