First Day of Preschool

Some sisterly love
Time to hit the books and cram in the summer reading
What a big girl with her big girl backpack
She is getting so big too fast

A rainy day at the beach

Even on rainy days Ama makes sure there is fun to be had-if we can't be on the beach then we will bring the beach to us!

Beach trip part 2

There is always love for Ama
Uncle Jas joined us on the 2nd day and he and Hannah had fun building castles and being silly as usual

Days at the beach

While Ama and Grandpa Ed were down at the beach for the week, we made an overnight.

Lilah loved the pool (at least before she learned how to crawl)
Aunt Kris, Ama and Hannah had a blast in the water! Once again Hannah is always up for an adventure.
I wouldn't say it was a relaxing day on the beach for anyone
Aunt "Kiss" and Hannah love!

Hannah's first play

We went to an amusement park for the day and Hannah got to be a princess in her first play.
What a ham!
She was by far the youngest and bravest!

Days at the Swim Club

The three burritos or three amigos after a fun day at the swim club
Lilah and Naomi one of her many adoring fans
Hannah, Ama and Ayla- Ama is always the entertainer with more energy than the rest of us put together!

July Family Trip to NH

After going to my one of my oldest and dearest friends wedding on July 4th, we headed up to Lincoln, NH for a family vacation. It was the first one as a foursome. The pic. above is of the place we stayed out , it was at the base of Loon Mountain in the White Mountains of NH. We had a lot of family just hanging out together without much of an agenda. Hannah did a lot of firsts which was fun and Lilah enjoyed the ride as usual.

Nose Rubs
Hannah hanging out by the pool which was freezing but she seems to brave anything.

One of Hannah's favorite days was a ride on the Hobo train which was a real locomotive. She was all prepared with her engineer hat and bandana.
Lilah enjoying herself at 7 1/2 months old. She is busy these days, sitting up reaching for everything in sight and wanting to crawl.
Enjoying the train ride
Nothing like an ice-cream cone (even if it is sorbet) on a summer night while on vacation with the family.

Cloudy Days in NH

In the middle of our trip we hit some cloudy/rainy days so we made the best of it. One of Hannah's new favorite discoveries was made on this trip-DONUTS!!! (Papa will be so happy) She recently had her yearly allergy testing done so it looks like her allergies are improving. We think she is not allergic to eggs anymore (it will be confirmed next week) but she can now eat milk and egg when it is baked into something like a donut, cookie, cake, etc- VERY EXCITING FOR US ALL. No more making a special cupcake to look like the the cupcake at a someone elses birthday party!
Another first-putt putt golf
Hannah enjoyed throwing the ball and chasing it rather than hitting it with club:)
Another first- Bowling, notice how big the shoes are for her, her personal goal was to get the ball in the alley way:)

Day trip to Loon Mountain-the best day!

For Hannah the highlight of her trip was riding "Zeusy" the horse (not a pony). She rode him at the bottom of Loon Mountain. She loved it so much that we went back the next day just so she could get another ride, she is a brave one.
At the top of Loon Mountain we had lunch and girls hung out.
Hiking around Loon Mountain.

Going back down after a great day!

Summer MO trip to the Lake and Monroe

We headed to MO in the early part of June to meet at the Lake for a week of fun with Mimi and Papa, Kim, Chris, and Livia. Mimi must have been a great storyteller to keep the attention 2 two year olds and a 7 month old.
Those silly girls ready for a swim.
Jason, Lana, Harper and Avery came to visit which was so fun.
My happy girl is 7 months old!

After a week of "relaxing" at the lake, we headed to Monroe to see the rest of the family. While we were there the cousins celebrated their 1/2 birthdays.
These are my favorite shirts, make sure to read them, they really do fit their personalities:)
Gigi got to meet Lilah for the first time.
