James and Tommy played Lacross this summer. I knew what Lacross was but I didn't realize what it all entailed.

When the boys went to pick up their gear I thought for sure they were missing stuff. I mean have you seen all the gear that football players have?? Lacross is so different!

They had shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves and a helmet. That's it! That's all. And then we sent them out to a field with a stick and they were told to go hit people.

It's a pretty brutal sport.... we all loved it!!

Tommy was about half the size of most of the players out on the field. He took some hard hits, but he is a scrappy player and he's fast s he was able to keep up and knock people over.

{sorry for the picture of the head that is in the way!}
Lacross is a fast paced game! They play for 12 minutes straight, have an 5 minute break... another 12 minutes and an 8 minute break for the half... and then again for another 2 more quarters! And then they are done. {as a mom I do have to say that is one thing that I like about this game.... in about an hour we are done!}

James really found his niche as defense. He is really strong and coming at most of the players on the opposite side, he would just plow them over. He would like to continue playing Lacross, but any sport that has a defense that hits people he will be great at!

And what team would be complete with out a cheering section!! 

It was fun for the boys to play and Tim wants to try it next season.

.... They even have a woman's league....!

Summer Fun

 Summer wouldn't be the same without a ton of pictures, so get ready for the over load. Some things that we did I want to highlight but here are some of the day to day things we did....

First of all sleeping....we like to sleep around here

There was that day, that was the last day of school so we waited....and waited for the brothers to get home
And then they did and we had a water fight.
There were about 150 balloons, but those went really fast so I'm glad that I bought these water wands so the fun could continue
 {ha... he didn't even know it was coming}

Of course there were a few tears... but nothing that 100 OtterPops couldn't fix... yup, we ate the whole box!

And then there was the nasty sunburn that came as a result of the day out in the sun. This sun burn was so gross!! He had blisters on both shoulders, they would pop and then fill again. It was like this for three days. They were on both shoulders and they got bigger before they went away. It really was so sad {and gross... did I mention that??}

There was trampoline sleeping ....
Enchilada Sauce making/canning
 And Benji finding some handcuffs but not the key....
 We had a slip'n'slide
 And Tommy had 'Jazz Hands'
 Swim who was always eating and never had clothes on.
Oh.... and this park!!!
James at the top

Tim on the monkey bars
And Swim {who does have clothes on...} who lost his shoe
 Benji wandering.... and getting stuck on the pyrmid

Tommy spinning
Tim and his best bud
And one little girl t add to the mix

There were rainy days in bathing suits

 {or shorts}

 And the bluest eyes you will ever see!

There were left over sparklers that needed to be lit.

 And dinosaur slippers that were worn most days.
This summer was fun and there are a few more highlights to come. We tried to pack in a bunch of stuff in the short time that we had.

one quick click will help me get into the top 25!!
