Move, with Derek and Julianne



We had a fun night seeing Derek and Julianne Hough, our favorite Dancing with the Stars pros, in their own show.

The ballroom dance numbers with just the two of them were particularly strong, and Julianne sang some great songs. What stage presence!

Kicking, Throwing, Paddling


Do the sports ever stop?  No, they do not. Soccer/baseball/flag football camp this week.


With swimming lessons in the afternoon. Q-ster paddles a bit here.


While Buster practices jumping in.

Dribble, Dribble, Swish



Boy, is it terrific when your grandparents indulge you with a basketball hoop in their backyard!

Spaceship, Spaceship, Spaceship!


One of the family presents for SwingDaddy was "Benny's Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!" from the Lego Movie.  For those us who owned the original 80's blue spacecraft, this giant super-cool version is particularly awesome.

Candles, Reprise


We celebrated SwingDaddy's birthday again with friends and family after we got home. I had a fair amount of luck with the red velvet cupcakes.


The candles were somewhat more challenging.  A friend and I lit as many as we could and started singing - too many letters were going to melt otherwise!



Some odd reflections, but you can tell we're smiling!

Soccer Camp


The last day of soccer camp was tournament day.  Q-ster played for Germany and Buster played for the USA.  We decorated their shirts accordingly.
