Smores....Harper's first time!

It was so much fun watching Harper eat her first smore......she enjoyed every last crumb. Her little hands were shaking up in down showing how excited she was to take her first bite. I love smores and they are such a wonderful part of our summers!!!

Heart Rocks.....

My dear friend Sarah S. has been collecting heart rocks for years and introduced the idea to me. While we were in Germany, we walked along this beautiful river a few times. We all decided to look for heart rocks as we meandered down the bank of the river. We were very lucky- we acquired quite a collection.

Full Glitz.....too many viewings of Toddlers and Tiaras

Henry and Emma took Harper from au naturale to full glitz over the course of the morning. She was a trooper.

The photo shoot begins......

Summer Reading and Summer Meals

Emma, Henry and I went to the bookstore yesterday to get started on our summer reading program. They both picked out some great books. Henry is really enjoying the Stink series and I am just thrilled that Emma is reading Nancy Drew as these books were some of my favorites growing up. She also found Mandy which looks like it will be a wonderful book.

I love the fruits and vegetables that we are able to eat in the summer. My mother-in-law and father-in-law have an amazing garden in upstate New York. They sent us back with so many cucumbers and zucchinis. We have been busy making salads, muffins and vegetable platters. Here is our dinner last night!!!

Fun in Nisky......

We had a great time visiting with both of our families back in New York. It was so much fun for Emma and Henry to have all of their cousins in one place......I forgot to take a picture of all of them together.

Schroon Lake

We just got back from our annual trip to Schroon Lake. As always we had a wonderful time being at such a beautiful spot with our extended family. A BIG THANK YOU must go out to Susie and Gary for allowing us to come up and stay! It was so nice for Emma and Henry to be with their cousins - Harper and Graham who came all the way from Colorado for a visit. The kids are still talking about using the wave runners and taking the boat up Schroon Lake for pizza.
