More Pictures

Friday, November 22, 2013
I had all the best intentions of writing a post with some actual words today, but for now some pictures will have to do. I really do plan to start blogging regularly again, but these three little kids are really cutting into my free time. Life with three littles is kinda crazy, really tiring and absolutely wonderful.

So, a few pictures of when my sister Libby was visiting. The kids love aunt Libby and she is great at keeping them entertained whether it be with baking, going for walks, making rocket ships, reading stories, or playing with sock puppets. 
Not entirely sure what Abby is doing to Lucas's head...
Cute.



All tuckered out.

Aunt Jacqui Comes to Visit

Tuesday, October 15, 2013
My sister Jacqui came to visit last week and we had so much fun. She was only here for a couple of days, but we were able to go down to the Cape for a night, which was nice. She and Hannah went for a "run" and she treated the girls to plenty of candy. We miss you, aunt Jacqui!



Such a cute picture!



I apologize for beings so lax with my blogging lately. It just seems as if we've been really busy between Hannah's pre-school, my midwife appointments, our Rosary group, playdates and general life busyness, I've just been too tired to blog. But I really want to try to pick it up again. Of course, I say that right before I'm about to have a baby... so we'll see...

Little Sister

Monday, September 23, 2013
It's not easy being the little sister. Abigail tries so hard to keep up with Hannah all day long.  She's pretty much abandoned her naps in fear she'll miss out on something fun, despite the fact that she really should still be napping at her age. Oh well. But some days, around 4pm, she just can't keep her eyes open anymore and she falls asleep right where she is and in the middle of whatever she's doing. It is too cute.

Snacking. Notice all the crumbs on her chest. That's my girl.

Hannah's First Day of Pre-School

Thursday, September 12, 2013
She was so excited and had so much fun.When I picked her up, she said, "Mom, I'm so happy. I love school!"




There goes my baby.
She did not want to pose for pictures outside school. She wanted to get in there!

Notice another little someone with her backpack. She wanted to go to school too.
She said she played with the baby dolls and played on the playground outside. They sang the song "head, shoulders, knees and toes" and had show and tell. Hannah brought two little shells she found on Cape Cod for her show and tell. When I picked her up, her teacher said she did "awesome." 

Poor Abby wanted to go to school too. After we had dropped Hannah off, Abby kept saying "school, school." She didn't want to leave Hannah's school.



All in all, a great first day!

Peach Picking

Friday, September 6, 2013
And raspberry and blackberry picking too.

Along with camping and our cliff walk, we visited Sweet Berry Farm during our recent jaunt to Rhode Island. If you remember, we went there back in June to pick strawberries and loved the farm so much we couldn't wait to go back.

This time we picked peaches, blackberries and raspberries. We picked a ton of peaches and have been enjoying them and giving a bunch away to neighbors and friends. I made this peach and creme fraiche pie recipe from Smitten Kitchen, which was delicious, and I plan to try her peach butter recipe too.

Like I said, we really love this farm. We may even go back this fall to pick apples and pumpkins. We are also planning a visit to Parlee Farms, which is right here in Massachusetts and looks amazing. 

I love visiting farms with the kids and picking fruit because 1) I think it's fun; 2) I think it's important for kids to know where their food comes from and 3) I think it exposes kids (and adults too) to foods they might not otherwise try (like blackberries). So there's my little pitch for visiting a farm with your kids. Without further ado, the pictures.






 

Fun times were had by all.

Cliff Walk

Tuesday, September 3, 2013
We planned our camping trip to be as close to Newport, RI as we could manage. Newport is such a great town and we seem to have a wonderful time every time we visit, so we thought camping nearby would be the perfect excuse to go back.

We drove down to Newport Thursday morning and had lunch at this little clam shack that had the most amazing view. After lunch, we walked the Cliff Walk again. It's such an incredible view and the girls loved hiking about 3/4 of it. Then they broke down and were crying the rest of the way. Fun times.
Nice view, right? And the fried clams were so good! P.s. How cute is Abby in that hat?


Hannah wanted to run the whole way...until she didn't.
Rolling down the hill, a new favorite activity.
Happy hiker.

Sisterly love.
Cuties.
Her legs were "hurting" from all her running.
Me coming out of the porta-potty. Keepin' it real.
