Sunday Morning Picnic

The joys of having one car... the kids & I had to drop Alasdair off early at church for worship practice, so we had a Dunkin Donuts picnic on the Green with our extra time.

A Regular Saturday

Here's what a regular Saturday at home looks like...

I got away between Alden's feedings to meet my friend Rachel for breakfast and we sat outside on a lovely sunny June morning.  I brought her daughter home with me to spend the day with us while mom & dad packed up their apartment for their move to DC this week.  (Boo!) 

 Alasdair took all three girls on his normal dump & bank trip, then left to help other friends with their move for a couple hours. The girls while the girls rode bikes and generally ran in circles around the house, 

while Alden and I worked on getting a mailing out for work. 

We went to the pool
 (Alden slept in his stroller the whole time),

and the kids ate on the deck


 while Alasdair practiced music for church.

 When the girls were finally in bed, we relaxed with one of our old favorite meals

and a yummy dessert courtesy of Rachel & Pete.

Life is full, but beautiful.

Two Months


We are 0 for 2 on taking Alden's "month" pictures on time.  Poor third child. ;)  I think he still knows we love him.






These girls adore their baby brother.
