Summer

 

I can’t believe summer is ending!  Like always we have been busy, but having the girls so much more active makes each day better than the one before.  These two love the water and have absolutely no fear!  We’ve spent a lot of nights in the pool swimming once Jay gets home from work.

Anyway, here are a bunch of pictures from the past couple months with these silly coconuts.  They are forever dancing, hitting each other with books, and climbing on everything…love them!

Carousel

A little while back we spent a week visiting my parents in NJ, and man, the girls had fun.  We went to the aquarium, the beach, saw friends, and by far their favorite part was going to the carousel.  They loved it so much they both cried the second it stopped!  I’m a sucker and my Mom is an even bigger one, so of course, we went around again.

The last 3 pictures are my favorites!  The evolution of Ev deciding she loved it.  She was so unsure at first, and then after a minute she realized she kinda liked it, and by the end she was dancing on the seat and we had to hold her in place!

Lately

If we thought life was going to calm down moving out of the city, boy were we wrong.  We have been running around seeing friends, getting our house together, planning the wedding (we have a date!), Jay started his new job, we went to Maine and Newport, we’ve been hiking, we have had visitors (and have more this weekend), and we’re getting in the swing of things up here.  Overall, it has been a really great transition and we are loving it up here (plus, I can go to the grocery store and buy more than 5 things at at time…say what!?)

Here are too many pictures from life lately. I have to get better at updating this!

Is Summer Really Over?

This weekend was wonderful!  Rondo and I went home to my parents house and got to relax, go on long walks, run all over the park, take naps, and enjoy driving around in the car (his new favorite).  Sunday the whole family went to the beach for a delicious brunch and to enjoy the last moments of summer before school starts again for Mom and summer Friday’s end for me.

Rondo was EXHAUSTED after all of the long walks, running, and playing outside he did this weekend.  He is so cute (especially when he is sleeping).  But when we got home on Monday and he saw Jay, he forgot about all the fun we had together and only wanted to cuddle his Papa.


In other news, my plants at home survived the weekend alone which made me really happy.  My herb garden is even starting to grow!

It’s hard to be back at work today, to leave Jay and the pup when all we want to do is snuggle at home.  At least I have homemade blueberry cake for breakfast and some yummy pumpkin cider waiting at home (fall is coming!).

Rondo

Let me formally introduce you to Rondo.  Our little monster menace and cutest boy in the world.  We are totally in love with him…even when he brings the toilet paper all the way into the living room, bites out his stitches, steals our dinner, and bites our ankles (maybe not the last one)!
