look who came to dinner!

We had quite a treat, with a weekend visit from Julie T and Kacey! They were coming to the Jersey area to visit friends at the shore and were able to spend a night at our place. Julie and I agreed that it made us happy to watch how well the girls hit it off. I doubt they understood the connection they have, but, they pulled out the "I Love You Like Crazycakes" book and tried to figure out which baby they were of all the babies in the 'big room'. It was a busy fun time with trips to both build-a-bear and blueberry picking at our local farm. The best part of all is that we will see them again in a few weeks at Disney.

a day at the beach

We all enjoyed a day at the jersey shore last weekend. Stef has always loved the ocean and, after about 2 hours, Jena did too! This was great progress for Jena since last summer she was terrified to even put her toes in. She still would only go in if I held her hand because she "doesn't want to float away!". I promised her I would hold on tight and soon she was jumping over the waves yelling "I do- I do -I do like the ocean!" I am very glad she has decided to like the ocean since we are about to spend a week at the North Carolina beach.
