Wordful Wednesday-Lifeguards

I, for one always feel so much better when they are on duty.

Let’s just hope no one else does.

In about 20 days they might be more qualified for the job seeing as though they’ll be 3.

I’m hijacking my own post.

My babies are going to be 3. And then I’ll blink and they’ll be old enough to vote.


No more beach photos from here on out. I promise.

Next time I’ll take a picture of something really interesting….like my lemon tree. πŸ™‚
*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo but that just can’t seem keep our mouths shut about it. If you’d like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll. Feel free to “capture” my 7 Clown Circus button on the left to link back to me, and be sure to add yourself to Mr. Linky. Thanks for playing along!

    Please don’t promise to take away beach pictures. Why would you do such a hurtful thing πŸ™‚ I live in FL and STILL love beach photos. I’d like to see you all on the beach with a red checkered tablecloth having a picnic. Not sure where that came from but hey…..

    I’m trying to pretend I’m not first. So, I’m not going to even mention that I’m first. It’s not like I was sitting her trying to be first or anything, ok……….

    And you should never misspell especially when you’re first. Yikes. Sitting HERE, sitting HERE, trying to be first. I mean, NOT trying to be first……..

    I feel your joy/pain! When little humans have been in this world for 36 months they are almost grown!? They can feed themselves, they can almost go potty, they sleep in their own bed, they negotiate, they demand, they hug and speak and kiss. After 36 months of our gentle guidance they become boys and girls and they begin to learn so quickly! Congrats to you on this achievement!

  6. 6

    Cute babies. And it’s true, they will grow up TOO fast. And I’m pretty sure none of us mind the beach pics!

    I so know what you mean, you blink and then they are grown. Why does it have to happen this way.
    But those are so nice lookin’ lifeguards.

    After (jealously) enjoying your beach pics I think I need to take advantage of the fact that we have had amazingly gorgeous weather and I live an hour from the beach too.

    3!!! NO WAY. Cuz that means my girls are close behind. πŸ™

  21. 21

    i love how they look so at home. do they walk up and down and up and down that ramp?

    PLEASE don’t let up on the beach photos, although who’d want to pass up the chance to view a lemon tree?!

    they do grow up so fast… it’s true. kiss those sweet, almost three y.o. big boys.

    Katie @ makingthishome.com says:

    I love the picture on the ramp. Beaches aren’t a part of my life, so I like seeing how life for people who live near them is. Thanks for one more beach shot!

    Heather @ Not a DIY Life says:

    They do grow to fast! For us, I don’t know where the last 17 months have gone.

    Oh…they do. They look so big. How did that happen? What are you feeding those boys?

    With each age comes special treasures. That is, until they reach their teens. πŸ™‚

    Oh, they’re treasures then alright, aren’t they? Mischievous devious treasures.

    hippos toes says:

    I love the beach photos! They grow up so fast. My little guy will be 2 in February and I still can’t figure out where the time went. I wish I could bottle him and keep him this age forever. I love that I can hug, kiss and squeeze him as much as I want to. Motherhood is an amazing thing!! πŸ™‚

  55. 55

    Happy birthday to your little guys! Yesterday when we voted the man at the polling place asked my oldest if she would be voting soon. She said, “Not for another 5 years.”

    Holy cow…..it goes by so fast!

    I love the beach pics!

    Reluctant Housewife says:

    Adorable shot. I can’t live without adding words to the WW posts… Wordful Wednesday is a great idea.

  58. 58

    i am okay with beach pictures…at least as long as we continue to have 7-0 degree days around here! cute picture! i hate that the years just storm by without any thought of whose heart they are trampling on…

  59. 59

    Personally, I love beach pics πŸ™‚

  60. 60

    I just can’t believe that it can be so different in weather in the same country.
    I’ll never get used to that.
    I love the beach pic’s.
    Man I’d be at the beach all the time if we had one.
    Love the beach.
    Miss the beach.

  61. 61

    i have feedburner?? not sure what i need to do to fix that??? do you ?? lol …

  62. 62

    I love the beach and Hubby has never been, so these pics are the only way he gets to see what it’s really like. Don’t take them away! Congrats on the kids turning 3. Love it while you can!

    Are You Serious! says:

    β™₯ I'm okay with beach pictures too! It's 40ish degrees here and windy as ever! πŸ™‚

  65. 65

    yea, a lemon tree. i wish i could have either that or an orange tree. doubt either would do too well in the midwest.

  66. 66

    Yeah, I’m probably not going to enjoy those beautiful beach photos when its below zero around here:)

    Great one. OUR BABIES ARE GOING TO BE 3!!! What happened? How can we make them stop??

  67. 67
    girlytwins says:

    It’s only 9:30 am in Cali and you already have 90 players. How cool is that? πŸ™‚

  68. 68

    Never too many beach photos is the opinion of this landlocked Midwesterner! But I do love lemon trees… πŸ™‚

  69. 69

    They do grow fast. I just came across this video of the girls around 18months old. They were so little, sometimes it’s hard to remember those days! BTW I love the beach pics!

  70. 70

    That’s a really cool picture!

  71. 71

    You can never post too many beach pictures…. They are great!!

  72. 72

    I would definitely feel more confident knowing they were watching over things! SO cute!!

  73. 73

    Well I can’t see anymore beach pictures, cause now your just showing off your warm weather! :):):):):) it’s soooooo cold here, we already have snow on the MT, I’m not ready for winter, can I come visit you? πŸ™‚

  74. 74
    MoziEsmΓ© says:

    We will just have to wait 20 days or so before heading to the beach again – wouldn’t want any underqualified lifeguards on duty, you know?! How cute!

  75. 75

    What a great picture! I am going to have to join in next week! I have you added to my Google Reader so I will remember!

  78. 78

    love the beach pics… keep em coming!

    however, a lemon tree pic is also requested… πŸ™‚

    p.s. bummer you’re not in WL anymore, we totally could have gotten together!

    If you come back to visit.. give me a heads up! πŸ™‚

  79. 79

    It’s so odd to see the sunny beach when I am freezing my butt off here πŸ™‚

    I like this concept of word-full wednesdays. I always feel like I’m cheating on my wordless wednesdays…. I didn’t exactly let the words roll this week – but more next week!


  83. 83

    oooooh, you have a lemon tree? Jealous. Make LOTS of fresh lemonade, and if you’re headed to UT anytime soon, bring me some!

  84. 84

    love them and squeeze them as much as you can… they grow up too fast these days…. great photo….

  85. 85

    Love kids on the beach!

  86. 86

    I’m guessing there won’t be a ton of opportunities to go to the beach. I can’t believe it’s rained twice in the past week.

    Churchill says:

    I cannot believe they are going to be three already! Wow.

  91. 91

    I think your trying to kill me with all your warm weather and sunshine pics. I could live for that weather all year long. I really could.

    As for turning three, its not possible! Your boys are still babies. Oh wait… going back to babies times two might be worth letting them grow up.
