July 29 and we have warm weather!

We have finally had a couple of days of nice, warm, sunny weather! Manny, Makenzie and I decided it was time to go to Gifford's for ice cream. I ordered us all a "kiddie" cone, um not so small. It was at least 3/4 of a cup of ice cream. That's a lot of ice cream for anyone, um, but the kids didn't seem to mind:

Washington DC

The day after Manny's Family Birthday Party we decided we were sick of the rainy weather. Joe looked at and the closest destination for a road trip was Washington DC.

We drove and spent three days in Washington DC getting a fast-forward tour of the city.

The Three Amigos

Manny, McKayla and Roman have been friends since they were a little over a year old. Manny wasn't even walking yet. It was the fall of 2006. Since that moment they have been pretty much inseparable.

This picture is from Manny's 2nd Birthday Party:

This picture is from Manny's 4th Birthday Party:

I have enjoyed watching all three of them grow up, grow closer and get along like siblings (sometimes good, sometimes bad). It does make life a lot easier when you have such close friends for your kids and myself, it's like a group-parenting effort and I am so glad to have their friendship for Manny and for myself.

Here's what happens when you give black frosting to kids:

Manny had a lady bug birthday party and I made cupcakes that looked like lady bugs, complete with black frosting.

Messy? Yes. Great pictures? Absolutely.








Manny's Birthday Party Part One

We had a beautiful day for Manny's 4th Birthday Party (one of the only nice days in June!) He had 10 friends (including Manny and Makenzie).

The kids made their own pizzas for lunch and played in the pool and with the hose all morning.

A Day in the Mud

Since it has been raining for the last month, we decided to take advantage of it:

Story Land

In June, we went camping in New Hampshire and decided we should take the kids to Story Land. I have to say, even as an adult, Story Land was a lot of fun. Manny was able to go on all the rides (Joe and I could also...hello roller coasters!).
