A Very Rangers Birthday Party

Today’s TBT brought to you (from March) by a sadly-always-behind-Mommy. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back in March, Caleb was invited to a Very Rangers Birthday Party. As in, it was AT Rangers Ballpark. ON. The.

Summer Fun – Other Beach House Fun

Summer Fun – Fishing with Grandpa and Aunt Ruth

Part of the summer fun at the beach house this year was Jacob getting to go deep sea fishing with Grandpa, Daddy, and Aunt Ruth. (Caleb was supposed to go, too, but he woke up with an earache, so he opted to stay on dry land.) The anglers had a great day and came home […]

For Christmas this year, Santa brought the Brandt family a 2-person kayak. They were nice enough to let us test it out on our trip to the beach house this summer. In related news, we’re now in the market for a kayak ourselves.

Summer Fun – In Easily Digestible Bites

What’s that saying about how to eat an elephant? One bite at a time, right? We had SO much fun this summer. So much fun that I was too busy enjoying it all to do much posting. Rather than do one or two ┬áREALLY long posts that wouldn’t do any of the activities any justice, […]
