My long neglected blog - I return to visit

My blog has been neglected for almost two weeks. We have been very busy and we were on vacation for several days.
We went down to Bandon for Liam's 4th Birthday.
The boys had fun playing on the beach while we were down there. The weather was beautiful.

We went down to the docks to go crabbing. I bought the boys Spiderman fishing poles so they would have something to do. Liam did not get into it very much. Christian spent a lot of time working on his casting. David put a lure on his hook, but we did not have bait, but he still caught a small fish. We only caught two crabs over two days, but on the first day a boat came up to us when they were returning to shore. The drive asked Christian if he caught a lot of crab today. Christian told him we had one. The man asked to see it, so Christian showed him our bucket. The man then opened up his cooler and added about seven crabs to our bucket. We enjoyed crab cakes and crab salad for dinner that night. We had crab cakes for breakfast the next morning too. Not bad for camping food.

We celebrated Liam's birthday at the campsite. I picked up some mini-cupcakes at the store in town. David and the boys played at the playground while I set things up for Liam and there was a little girl playing with them. I invited her over to join us for cupcakes.

We went back out to crab the next day. It was much more windy, so we did not stay as long.

I have taken photos of the boys on this bench on several visits, so we have a bit of record of them growing up.

The boys and I went to a pumpkin patch that has a train yesturday. We picked up a couple pumpkins that are good for carving and came home and carved them last night.

Here are some layouts I did this week
