Today, our silly, happy little Noah is three years old. I can't believe how quickly the last three years have flown by. It seems like it was just yesterday that we brought him home and began this adventure of parenthood. Now he's running all over the house and making us laugh on a daily basis.
He is definitely all boy. He loves digger things and pusher things (backhoes and bulldozers), he loves his trucks and cars, and he spends a good amount of time crawling around the house growling like his favorite dinosaur, a t-rex. He will pick up pretty much any bug that he sees to give it a closer inspection, and has recently been able to catch tiny frogs out in the yard. He loves to play in puddles after a good rain and really doesn't mind getting dirty. He is full of energy and full of love, and I just can't believe he belongs to us. We are so blessed to call this amazing little boy our son, and I can't wait to see what joys the next year with him brings.

This year, we decided to take another Larkin family trip down to Pensacola. We had a great time playing on the beach and spending some time with family. Noah enjoyed splashing in the water, and had a great time helping the guys dig a giant hole in the sand.
It was Grayson's first trip to the beach. He pretty much hung out in the shade and in the condo. We'll get him in the sun and sand next time. He did try on Noah's old bathing suit and hat, which was just adorable. He also took a dip in the indoor pool, which he seemed to really enjoy.
The guys had fun with Grandpa's paddle boards, and even turned one of them into a slide for the kids. Then they chased a few crabs up onto the sand for the kids to take a look at.
We had a lot of fun and completely wore Noah out. We are planning to make this trip every other year and it should be a lot of fun to see how the kids change each time. I'm sure the 'big boys' will have them doing some crazy things the next time we go.
