Smokies Game

We recently went to a Friday night TN Smokies game. We thought Murphy would love it, and boy were we right! He loved all aspects from the BIG tub of popcorn to the mascots, games, and so on! We went to watch Alex throw out the first pitch, as it was Webb School Alumni Night! He threw it so fast the pic didn't turn out, but here he is teaching Murph a little bit about baseball!
Doesn't everyone need a foam finger bigger than their head? (Even when their head is larger than most?!:)

Dippin' Dots with BeBe was also a big hit!

What could be a better end to a wonderful evening of junk food and baseball? Getting to sit in the firetruck in the parking lot, of course!

Berry Pickin'

A couple of Fridays ago, we went to the berry patch just outside of Knoxville with our playgroup buddies. We had so much fun! Murphy is loving the book, Blueberries for Sal right now so it was really exciting for him! He began eating them right off the bushes just like Sal! We got a lot of blueberries, a few blackberries(they are almost done for the season), and some grapes. We will most definitely go back in the fall to pick apples and pumpkins! I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Happy summer!

Beach Trip 2010!

Daddy and Murphy had so much fun in the waves at Kiawah Island the first week of our trip. They saw a small shark just after this pic was taken!

Murph doesn't mind the sand at all! It is a mess! (See video at the bottom!:)

Deciding to take a little rest!

Riding the waves!

He loved the pool at Kiawah!

BIG breakfast!

Chillin' at Pawley's Island the second week!

He really liked all of the beach activities this year- especially the popsicles!

Relaxing with DeeDee

He also loved "Baby Abby", although she has grown up from last year. These two were big buddies!

Play-dough fun!

Daddy taught Murphy to fish with his new Batman fishing pole. Walker used to fish from the same dock when he was Murph's age!

His biggest catch- a clam!

Afternoon boat ride with Daddy and Collin!

Sea Kayaking with DeeDee! (or riding the gondola as he says)

Snack time with Abby!

Sharing another snack with Abby and Alex and Avery Abernethy, our friends who live in Murrell's Inlet, right next to Pawley's. Walker grew up with their Daddy, Chip!

Murph holding the newest Abernethy, little brother, Austin!

Here are two fun videos of Murph in action on our trip!
