Beth: "I'm going to draw the lightning now." Me: "What color is lightning?" Beth: "Red." Me: "Really?" Beth: "Yeah. Like Lightning McQueen."

Heading to our first day on the beach. Can't wait to see the kids in the waves!

We`re an hour into our trip to NJ and have already stopped 4 times. That cannot be a good sign.

Camping with Papa Jon & Grandma Miriam

Camping with Papa Jon & Grandma Miriam was a hoot for the whole family! We try to get at least a few camping trips in every summer, and it may have been the first time for my folks, so it was a wonderful combination of new & old experiences. I do believe we'll have an easy time convincing my parents to do it again!

The obligatory heads poking out of the tent photo:


The Longest Parade Ever

We went camping with Papa Jon & Grandma Miriam last weekend, and before their grandparents met us, we decided to take in the 4th of July parade in Warren, PA. Turns out, that particular parade has a reputation for running a tad long.

That reputation was hard-earned, to be sure.

Here are our girls just before the parade started:




And here are our girls roughly 3 hours later, just before we gave up on the parade, which was STILL GOING STRONG:




As you can imagine, it hardly mattered that we were sleeping on the ground that night.

Bath-time Coloring

Aunt Shirley & Uncle Rick gave the girls a pack of special bath crayons, and as you can see, once the girls got their hands on them, things got crazy!

Erie Canal

Aunt Sarah and I took the kids to the Erie Canal locks last week. It was a rather windy day, but the kids enjoyed watching the locks in action!






Just took Bekah to the doctor to have a couple warts frozen off; she was a big tough girl!

Abby Laughing: VIDEO!

I managed to capture this moment earlier today:

Early baby laughs are just a miraculous thing.

(Substantial posts from the last couple weeks are coming very soon, I promise!)
