C & H's 5th Annual Summertime Visit

C. & H. have visited us (almost) every summer since MiniM.E. was a baby. This year we planned a long weekend of all their favorite NY activities: Spray Park, Animal Land and the Great Escape.

They arrived Thursday night. Since the weather was pretty terrible all week and we only made it to one swim lesson, we dragged them along to swimming on Friday morning. H. and LittleL.G. played in the kiddie pool while MiniM.E. had her lesson.

In the afternoon we went to the Spray Park.

And came home for some outside time and a BBQ.

Saturday we headed to Adirondack Animal Land. Everyone had a great time with the animals.





And stopped for ice cream on the way home.

Then we roasted hotdogs over the fire for dinner.

Yesterday we spend the day at the Great Escape and C. & H. left for home from there since it was half an hour closer to home.

Thanks for coming, C. & H.!!


What Have We Been Up To?

The last week or so we have been swimming in the morning and taking it easy in the afternoon. Enjoying playing outside, and taking it easy.

Lots of BabySlimJim smiles and cuddles:

A creative afternoon of sidewalk chalk painting:

And a newfound love of Spiderman:

**Yes, this is my two year old wearing my two month old in a doll carrier, which I am fully aware is not intended for carrying actual babies. The baby was in the carrier for less than 5 minutes. The floor was covered with pillows, I was less than 6 inches away from the baby and my daughter was fully supervised and stationary for the duration.
