Grant's payback!

One of our favorite activities is taking goofy pictures on my Mac. I recently tried to get a picture with me and the 2 boys together, but Grant kept pulling Gabe out of the way to check out that cute baby on the screen. It was hilarious, so of course I had to film it. :)

Happy Birthday Nana and Uncle Wilson!

Happy Birthday to Nana on the 24th and Uncle Wilson on the 26th!! We are so lucky to have Nana live nearby. She loves to come over and play with the boys. She takes Gabe outside to play, and plays endless hours of "store" and many other games with Gabe. She also absolutely love to feed Grant. He opens his mouth so big for food! (he takes after his father!). Nana has blessed our lives in so many ways, and we've especially loved having Nana with us in New York. Uncle Wilson was the very first Uncle to see both Gabe and Grant. He was here for Gabe's birth, and the first Uncle to visit us after Grant was born. Gabe loves to wrestle with Uncle Wilson, and no one will ever be a better Easter Bunny than Uncle Wilson was this year! Happy Birthday Nana and Uncle Wilson!! We love you!

Month wrap up!

I know, I'm officially fired from my blog after not posting for over a month! :) We've had a very busy end of summer/beginning of fall. Here's what we did (in as few sentences as possible!)

In August, we took our annual Family Vacation to Lake George. This year Nana joined us as well, and we all shared a cabin. Gabe and Grant had a blast playing outside, going on long walks, playing at the beach and running around with the other kids. Gabe's favorite part was a large bell at the top of a building, which the night staff was kind enough to ring just for him. Every night Gabe would look out the window of the hotel lobby and talk to the bell, and it would ring back to him. :) We also took Gabe kayaking and this year he really enjoyed it (last year he screamed the entire time!). Also, Grant learned to crawl shortly before we left for camp, so he really enjoyed crawling all over the soft grass and playing in the dirt! I committed the most unpardonable sin and forgot my camera on the charger at home. Noooooo!!! Michael has a few pictures, but it may be a while before I can get some from him....

In September, some of our highlights have been finding great new toys at yard sales and taking a playgroup tour of the Fire Station and Airport. Here are some pictures of the firehouse tour:
