Playground with Charlie

"One day Charlie, we'll be able to climb on that stuff...."


She can pump herself if you give her a starter push.

The 3 kids were all wearing matching bright green (unplanned) and so we thought we'd try to get a picture of them all on the swings where they would be confined.

kind of tricky. but the other option is taking their picture when they are all eating....

Sister Patches

For the first time, Ella decided to don an eyepatch like Josie.

She kept it on for maybe 2 minutes.

MV trip

We went with the Kilgores to stay at the cape this past weekend and had a great time. Unfortunately my camera batteries were dead and I didn't bring my charger, so thanks Lauren for taking this picture of us in line at the flying horses carousel on Martha's Vineyard. I have to say we are all looking pretty horrible in the heat!

Here are the highlights: Ella loved the ferry ride, the carousel rides, the junk food we ate at the vineyard all day. Josie loves dogs, all dogs especially at naptime when they seem to resemble pillows. Our kids didn't sleep great. The grill caught on fire. We lost power. We decorated t-shirts. We laughed lots. As always, an exciting and fun time catching up with old friends! Thanks guys!

Henry Visits

Henry (and his mom) visited us last week. The big kids fingerpainted (with brushes)/

Josie started really walking!

The watched Doc McStuffins. A real nail biter.

And Josie had a (pretty) good morning with her eye patch.

Thanks for the visit. We are glad we made it into the top tier of people you need to see when you are on a New England trip!

We hung out at Nicoles for a playdate with Alexander and Charlie. Since there were so many babies, it was easier to put Ella in the play yard and let the babies have free reign that way they couldn't mess up her stuff.

Then we went to the playground.

Going to the Playground

Ella is such a little mommy sometimes and loves pushing Josie in the stroller.

These pics are horrible, but they are so funny all together that I couldn't delete them.

Ella "I'll hold your hand Josie."

Or not.

So you think you can dance?

Why walk when you can dance?

Dinner and a SHow

Here is a snipit from Ellas nightly dinner theater routine. I really shouldn't wonder why Josie isn't talking more. How can she?!

The week before

I would never have guessed the week before the swim lesson incident would happen because this is what she was doing. (and was also fine without the life vest aside from not wanting to go underwater).

Lessons by Proxy

Ella would have gladly sent Josie in to take her place at swim lessons, unfortunately Josie is too little. So Josie and I sat and watched the lesson up close with the other parents, and Ella hid behind us avoiding the pool all together.  I think that Thursday afternoons are about to get really real.

I love myself.

This was all fun and games of course until a couple days later when she did this when I was in the other room and the mirror fell on top of her.
