Happy July 14th!

2015-07-02 12.51.51I’m not sure what made me think I would be a better blogger this summer. True, I am not going to work every day, but I am feeding/bathing/diapering/entertaining/corralling/cuddling/cleaning up after three toddlers all day. And training for the NYC marathon during nap time. Don’t ask! In any event, I have lots of photos of what’s been going on recently, but I’m going to try to keep this one short and sweet, since it’s already way past my bedtime!


July 3, 2015

As is our Fourth of July tradition, we spent the holiday this year in Islip, visiting with the Havemeyer clan and the Strumolo aunts and uncles. It is hard to believe that the last time we were there, one year ago, Henry, Jack, and Sophie had never really experienced the sun (much less the great outdoors), and they spent most of their time sleeping inside. They were only a week past their due date, after all! This year, they were busy exploring, indoors and out!


Islip is the perfect place for rides in our Choo Choo Wagon.

There is lots of space to practice walking….

And three little chairs to sit and relax in…


She forgave me.

We have discovered dogs. And we LOVE them. It’s a, “We can barely contain our excitement!” kinda love.

Jack is especially smitten.

And of course we made an effort at a festive family photo.
