I Picked These For You

I looked over to see Liam with one chubby little finger up his nose today.  So, when I freaked and swiped his hand away saying, “NO! Yucky!!”  He naturally thought he would get an even better reaction with two.

Wordless Wednesday: Toddy Pond

We spent a quick two days with my family last weekend. We went to Toddy Pond where my stepfather and mom (alias Mimi & Bucky) have a “camp” (as we refer to it in Maine).  A camp is basically a 2nd home. It’s usually pretty rustic and usually near a body of water or in the woods.  However, I’ve seen some “camps” that are more fancy-pants than my own house.

Anyhoo, I digress.

Our Sunday was spent celebrating my niece’s 8th birthday at her grandmother’s house.  Beautiful day, lots of cousins, and yummy food.

Wordless Wednesday: Cape Cod Vacation

Every summer we meet my in-law family in Cape Cod for a week.  This year the weather was perfect and as you can see it was beach, beach and more beach.  We ended our trip with a quick stop to visit friends in Marshfield, too.  Here is an [almost] wordless account:
