Clare and her Puppy

When I was pregnant with Grace and Jake and in the hospital on bedrest, my mom ordered Grace and Jake a stuffed frog and duck.  I took some pictures of them with the stuffed animals and they are some of our favorites.  My mom sent Clare a puppy right before she was born, and I finally had the chance to take some pictures of her with it this afternoon.  She's such a sweet baby and was so cooperative!  I love how the pictures came out!

We went to the park yesterday with Adam and Jessica, our neighbors.  They brought their dog who likes to chase sticks.  When they took her off the leash to swim, Grace proceeded to throw the leash in the lake.  George went in after the leash, slipped, and sat right down in the water.  Here he is:

Jessica tells the story much better than me, so go here to read about it.

We love the Y!

Daddy some law school competition to judge this evening, so I decided to take all the kids to the pool. The Y has this awesome pool that is has beach entry at two ends and is only about 2.5 feet deep at its deepest point. I can sit in the shade with the baby and not be far from the twins. The love to jump and splash around in the water and would have been content to stay all night, I'm sure. We have to work on not running though!

Something New

Thanks to our new neighbors who suggested it, we have been taking G&J to a nearby park to feed the ducks and play. They love it and ask every single time we drive by the pond.

Our neighbor named this duck Cotton Ball

Kid Carts

I seriously love this grocery store! It makes shopping so much easier when G&J can "help." Of course, it is not the closest of its kind, but its worth the extra few minutes drive just to have a little more peaceful shopping experience. The only disadvantage: we end up with "extras" at the end of our trip, most recently some Little Mermaid bubble bath.
