Summer pictures!



Time just keeps slipping away! And these sweet babies keep getting older. 

Happy Easter!

The Easter Bunny stopped at our house a day early this year because Ollie’s birthday is tomorrow. The boys were pretty excited to discover their baskets and the hidden eggs! And Aunt Hilly came to visit yesterday to help us dye eggs and decorate bunny (dinosaur) cookies. 🙂


The Easter Bunny left the boys solid chocolate bunnies…😳


Some recent pictures 


Ollie hid Easter Eggs for Charlie during Charlie’s nap. Here they’re enjoying the snacks hidden inside.

San Diego Zoo!

We went to Hawaii for Jen and Mike’s wedding (which was spectacular-more on that later), and on the way home we stopped in San Diego to see the zoo! It also meant that we didn’t have to take a red eye home. 🙂 It is such an amazing zoo-we saw lions, tigers, bears, elephants, giraffes, zebras, a rhino, a hippo, koalas, a panda, monkeys, snakes…the list goes on! I don’t know who enjoyed it more-me, James or the boys!

elephant! 🐘

I used to think that boys liked boy toys because society expected them to. And then I had boys. And they invent games like “bulldozer fight”.  (yes, this ended in tears)



The kids’ first initials… Coincidence? 🙂
