Hope's Half Birthday Celebration Weekend in Atlantic City, NJ!
Weekending at the Borgata with her fancy new swimsuit!
Brian got his summer buzz cut at the hotel barber shop.
He was shocked at all the hair on the floor.
None of us can stop rubbing his head!
Brian was VERY excited to go to the pool with his new arm floaties. He practiced in the tub.
Exhausted after our swim.
Hope and Brian are great travelers - they are so easy! Everything entertained them and they both slept so well each night!
We went to the Steel Pier on the Atlantic City Boardwalk! Last time we went there, it was with Gavin and Brian.
Brian had a blast going on rides!
And Hope loved watching and looking at everything!!
Brian and I went on a bunch or rides together. Like the roller coaster!
And the tea cups.
This was an accidental photo - I took a picture of Brian on the tea cups not knowing that Ed was taking a picture of me taking a picture of Brian - oh you get the idea. And yes - we are fully aware of our photography addiction. Thank you. Ha!
Ed and Brian had fun doing "sand art" where Brian impressed us by purposefully putting the colors in order of the rainbow.
And I'm so, so grateful to Ed for playing those carnival games where you win those GIGANTIC and OBNOXIOUS stuffed things. These are the only times I wish he was a big loser. Oh, dear God... what the heck am I going to do with these big things? (And it's even worse that Brian didn't even know what that character was. We don't watch Spongebob!)
The best part of the trip was asking Brian this morning at breakfast what his three favorite things were about the weekend. His answer: the room, the pancakes and the hotel.
And Hope? I think Hope had a wonderful weekend. Why? Because she is happy anywhere her big brother is.
These two just adore each other.
Happy Half Birthday, Hope!
