"Are You Happy?"




This is Molly's favorite question. Every day, she'll ask me and David -- you happy, Mama? You happy, Daddy? Yes, Molly, we're very happy.
PS -- A special thanks to McDonald's for putting a smile on our faces!

Family Visits

In recent weeks, we have been able to visit with many of our favorite great-grandmothers, aunts, uncles and cousins! We're so glad they came to see us!

Hanging out with her cousins Conor and Aidan. They came to see the museums, but we're pretending they came just to meet our pandas.
Four generations -- Grandma Peggy, Grammie, Daddy, Molly and Harper.


Uncle Joey meeting Harper for the first time.

Uncle Pete giving a lift to Molly and Sophia.

Grandma Peggy holding her newest great-granddaughter.


AND -- our Auntie EM was here. Despite the fact that she helped me stage a beautiful Father's Day photo shoot, I don't have one picture of her and the girls. I really don't know how that happened. SO, imagine a picture of Erin, Molly and Harper here. Hopefully, we'll see her when we are in Louisiana and we can put up a photo to prove it!

A Luray Fourth

We spent the Fourth of July out in the Shenandoah Valley. Lucky for us, we stumbled upon a great family fair in Luray, Virginia. There were 15 to 20 moonbounces for the kids, including toddler-sized ones just for Molly. Needless to say, she had a blast!

It's all fun and games until someone falls into the net and causes the moonbounce to collapse.

Molly's all smiles at the bottom of the inflatable slide.


Posing with pals at the top of another slide.
And how did Harper enjoy the fair, you ask? Well...

She snoozed through every single second of it! She didn't even wake up when "God Bless the USA" started blasting out of two giant speakers behind me.
