Last two weeks (ish)

Joy -
Hey friend! - After a long day, after a long week, this sure is nice.
My Thursday - I don’t intend to start a trend of posting about all my yesterdays from here on out, but I’m actually posting from my computer, instead of on my phone. Bob flew to New York yesterday (very, very early!) to take the PE exam, so I have my hands a little too full to post-in-the-moment like... Continue Reading →
My Wednesday - Yesterday I had a full-heart kind of day. After work, I played with Grant (and the big kids), and he is just so happy. Then we headed into Durham to meet with Bob and picnic at Central Park. I got a few photos of the scenery, and asked the kids “hey, could you both stand... Continue Reading →
Cruising potato - This little potato pulls himself up on everything now.

A short walk - My honey and I took a short walk today while visiting the market, and stopped to admire the river. I also think the graffiti in the second photo is pretty great.
Happy baby - My sweet boy has been a little bit clingy, but I have to say he is the easiest little potato. Yesterday he spent the entire afternoon with a bunch of grownups as all the neighbors happened to congregate at our neighbors’ house, and he was a contented buddy. And today, he was with the nanny...

Easter egg hunt - This morning I took the kids to the HOA Easter egg hunt. We saw their friend Reese there, and they had a great time with her!
Cake two - A recake if you will.
