Red Sox fans

Nate is working hard and making sure the girls are Red Sox fans. Ella sat and watched the game for way longer than I thought she would and was throwing out phrases like "I hope he gets a home run!"

Memorial Day

A rainy Memorial Day cookout was a perfect excuse to try out all the cool new stuff in Omi and Poppy's basement.

The rain stopped and the girls "shared" the tricycle.

Here they are negotiating their horse riding arrangements.

A very proud of herself Josie!

Baby playtime.

Dessert time

The girls had to help Poppy blow out his candles.

Happy Birthday Poppy!

Making Cookies

We were asked to make cookies for poppy's birthday party. Of course when I told Ella this I was reminded that the only thing she considers a cookie is a decorated sugar cookie. The most involved cookies to make ever....

We gave Josie some dough to play with but she ate it.

Ella took her decorating very seriously as "poppys most perfect birthday ever" depended on it.

While the church service was lovely, I'm afraid I didn't see much of it because all of this was happening at the same time....

I did stop her from eating the alter arrangements.

Somehow these 2 got the message "run, do not walk, run as fast as you can all around the church."

Caley's Baptism

We went to see Caley's baptism this past weekend. Uncle Ryan is her Godfather.

The kids and I went to visit Amy, Thomas and Acadia in Maine last week. We needed a break from unpacking and some fresh air. We made it up in time for lunch, and then hit the playground. I think that picture is my favorite.

Acadia loves the tire swing, but Ella has been reminded too many times about her vomiting incident after spinning on the astronaut board at one of Josies OT sessions, so she reminded everyone pushing that she might throw up. She did lots of spinning, and no throwing up.

Josie also did some exploring.

And yes I am horrible because I forgot her hat, so her scalp is slathered in sunscreen, hence the interesting hair style.

She hasn't said so, but I think Ellas personal goal for the summer is to be able to do the monkey bars herself.

After picking up Thomas from preschool, we went for an ice cream treat.

Another favorite.

Ella always offers to share her food, even her favorite things.

Josie wasn't very willing to give it back.

So she tried Acadia's too.

Then we went back to their house for more playing outside. As you can imagine, this situation, while very cute in the picture, didn't end well.
