My Three Sons

We found out today that Luke and Eli will be getting another brother! We are thrilled that everything looks good and healthy.

Delray Beach Fun

Wandering Around Mama and Luke sittin' for a minute

Luke took our picture

Look at that balance!

Luke had an audience and was loving it.

By the end of the weekend, we were all a little worn out.

Hoffmann's Travels

We've been on the road for the past couple of weeks. That's my explanation for the pitiful number of updates recently.

At the end of July, I went to Nashville to visit Raeanna. I got to fly out on Thursday and stay until Sunday. It was so fun to hang out with Rae and be completely selfish. We ate whatever I wanted to. We slept. We read. We cooked. We went sightseeing. We got a pedicure. It was tons of fun, and I had a great time remembering what it was like to be just me for a little bit. And I came home ready to be "Mama" again.

Two days later Luke, Eli and I packed up and went to Camilla until Saturday. Kris was away, staying at Disney, at a class for work. Sadly, his class was really tough and he had to study a lot, so he didn't get to enjoy his stay all that much. We, however, played really hard and enjoyed our stay in Camilla. Daddy was amazing with the boys and let them ride with him whenever he could. Of course, Mama fed us well and made sure we had fun. Before we left home, I asked Luke what he wanted to do at Grandma and Grandaddy's, and he said, "Just eat and play." Sounds good to me.

We got home last night from a weekend at Delray Beach. (Pictures to come) Mrs. Bonnie's 40th class reunion was this weekend, and she asked us all to come along and stay in the hotel. We had fun playing in the pool and walking around the city. It's a beautiful area.

We're worn out and ready to be home for a little while. I have a retreat this Friday night and Kate is coming next week to be here for my next ultrasound (!!!!). So, we still have a few more fun things planned before summer ends.

***I have to brag on Kris. He found out he made a 92 on his test! All the studying paid off!***

Probably close to a month ago we took the boys to the fire station to have their picture taken. Mrs. Bonnie had given a donation and got free pictures. Luke definitely has the "cheese" pose under control. I showed him this picture, and he said, "Look at my wonderful teeth." Unfortunately, their hair was out of control, but it was a last minute thing and nothing could be done....

Sweet brothers!

After we had pictures made, a really sweet volunteer fireman let the boys climb in the fire truck and turn on the lights, honk all the horns and touch everything. I didn't have the camera with me to take any pictures, sadly, but we would love to go back and do it again.

We got some with Kris' sister Erica's boys, Cole and Tripp. Tripp didn't like getting his picture made...
