Surprise Shots

A couple weeks ago, our wonderful babysitter, Katie, took Emerson to the beach for a photo shoot. She did this on a night she was babysitting, making it a surprise for us. What a thoughtful surprise! For anyone who knows Emerson, you know how much she is on the move. Capturing her in these pictures was no small task. Thanks so much Katie for the great pictures!!

Molly's Miracle

This past weekend, there was a fundraiser to help with our friend Molly's recent medical costs. The event was held at the Children's Museum and it was wonderful! So many people in one place, coming together all for Molly!

Even though we live close to the museum, we had never been before. Emerson had such a fun time and especially enjoyed the "Curious George" exhibit!

Summer Lovin'

A couple weeks ago, my friend Laura came to visit with her son. Emerson and I have made several trips to see them this summer, but this trip was special because it involved Laura and John staying overnight with us. The kids had a blast--two trips to the beach as well as an outing to feed the ducks and a little bit of Finding Nemo thrown in there for good measure.

One of the coolest things about my relationship with Laura is the fact that we go way back...26 years back to be precise. We met when we were six, went to school together only through the second grade and preceded to spend the next years of our lives in different towns, attending different schools. But no matter what---distance or time--- our friendship stayed strong. I hope that our children can find such amazing friends in each other! (I also hope that our children will one day forgive me for posting pics of them wearing diapers!)
