My baby went to prom. 

Yeah, unbelievable.

He had a great time with friends and his girlfriend. Trevor looked so handsome and his girlfriend looked beautiful.

Well, I only got like three selfie head shots but I am sure they both looked great head to toe.

I was so bummer that I could not be there to take pictures and see them off, but that is the way it goes when your son goes to school 6 hours from home.

I hope more pictures will surface in the coming weeks, but for now this is the best of what I have.
I love this handsome boy!

Go Fly a Kite

Griffin has been wanting to fly a kite.
The weather on Saturday could not be better, so we packed a picnic dinner and headed for Fort William.
We let Griffin pick out a kite and of course BB8 was the kite of choice.

The wind was definitely in our favor and Griffin rocked flying a kite.

He was all smiles and when he tired of flying the kite he had a blast chasing it.

We had a picnic lunch up on the hill and Griffin soaked up all the individual attention.

After we filled our bellies, Griffin was ready to explore. We checked out the light house, the mansion and the fort. It is such a beautiful location. We even got to crash a wedding that was happening on the lawn (okay so we did not crash it... we just watched it from a distance).

Griffin wanted to go swimming. Of course, we had no bathing suit and the water is not really to a comfortable swimming temperature. We did go down and dip our feet, or in Griffin's case, up to his waist in the cool Atlantic Ocean. Griffin tried to skip rocks. His dad showed him how but he never really got one to skip.
It was such a fun afternoon with Griffin. I just adore this boy. One of the best things about Griffin is he loves with his whole heart. It does not matter if it is his food or his family or playing a game or doing math this kid does it with his whole heart. He is such a delight. He is funny, outgoing and happy. He is always happy. His smile lights up the room and it is impossible not to smile when you are around him. 
It really is a shame this boy has no personality at all... HA!

Spring Soccer

Griffin decided to forgo lacrosse and baseball and instead decided to play spring soccer. His soccer loving dad could not be any happier.

Griffin, I think partially due to having big brothers, really gets soccer.
He runs circles around a lot of the kids and is loving the game.
He spent some time in net and even the coach was impressed by his "boot".
It has been so much fun to watch him really get the game, go to open space and dribble the ball.
He has also perfected the celebration. And it may be even more impressive than his goals. It is quite the show. 
I look forward to his first year of GYSA this fall.
