Throwback Thursday: Murphy Memories!

I want to kick this summer off with being more active with my posts, so I thought it would be fun to join in on the hype of “throwback thursday” & post a fun video or picture each week from our past. I haven’t really ever posted anything on my instagram or FB for this before, but let’s do something creative with it on the blog 🙂

If ya’ll know me…you know I have TONS of video & pics, so this should be easy…and entertaining!

So, with that, I think I found a pretty good one to start things off. This video was taken in early 2012 by a staff member at Liam’s school. I’m sorry to say that I never wrote down the exact date, but he had to have been about 7 or 8 months old. He LOVED this Little Tikes piano! Until I watched this again, I had forgotten that he used to also rub his chubby little feet together when he would get excited, too!  Enjoy!!

Our {Long} Weekend Recap

Hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day Weekend 2014! It was for sure a H.O.T. one in our neck of the woods. My, oh my, were we feeling the summertime temps, or what, already?!?!

When Liam gets a little older, we will explain to him the real reason for the holiday this weekend. Until, then, it was just an extra long & fun weekend for him. Overall, though, we kept it pretty low-key. He & I battled a stomach bug most of the week, so we spent the 1st part of the weekend playing catch up with chores & what-not. Daddy was a trooper with helping to take care of both of us & the house!

Once everyone’s bellies were feeling better, we indulged in some yummy ice cream cones after dinner. 🙂

Daddy says this was Liam’s FIRST ice cream CONE …I haven’t been able to locate any other pics of him eating a cone, so he may be right because ya know I would have documented that! LOL …He wouldn’t stop moving while eating this one, so it’s not the best shot, but here ya go:

On Sunday, we decided to head out to Cocoa Beach for a day of fun in the sun. Two things I learned after our trip. One, Liam needs a bigger sun hat (last years is too small….yet still so cute). Two, if we’re going to frequent the beach this summer, we need an umbrella. The Florida sun is brutal.

Liam loved the playing in both the sand and the water. While he would be in the water with us, he would sing, “we’ll be swimming in the ocean all day long…splish, splash”.

The other highlight of our weekend was that Mr. Liam taught himself how to do a somersault. Well, I guess, I should 1st clarify to say that I believe one of his little friends at school helped show him how, as I observed this from my glimpses on the camera. It was actually pretty hilarious and I wish I had been able to catch that on video. He must have felt confident in his new skill to show it to us because this is what he did on Saturday.

To end our weekend, last night, after bath, he proceeded to tell us that he loved us & that we were “the best day ever” ….I don’t think it gets much better than that, folks!

Until next time!
