Dirt Bath

Some friends came over for dinner, and Eva and Lev disappeared under the climber. We investigated and found they were giving themselves dirt baths.


Hopefully dusty backyard dirt is good for the skin!

Eva loves Goosie the cat, I think the feeling may be mutual

Not helpful

When Chad went to mow the lawn last weekend, Eva settled down to watch...

Perhaps she could have chosen a better location...

Grandma and Grandpa's

We had a lovely visit with Grandpa and Grandma. First, Noah and Eva went through all of the toy birds with Grandpa


Then the "instruments" (i.e. kazoos) were brought out and it was time to play!

Saba's store

This trip was the first time the kids got to really check out Hickeys, and it was a great time.

Noah liked the trumpet and the trombone


And gave the flute his best effort



But Eva really dominated the low brass



Then they both jammed out on the violin

(not quite ready for carnegie hall, but it's a start)

Nana and Saba's house

Chad had a weekend event for work so we took off for Tully. We had some cool but beautifully sunny weather so we headed out on the boat

Noah: weehee I'm on a boat!!

Eva: meh


Tippy the parakeet was exceptionally friendly this visit



What a happy time!

For the past few days, Noah and Eva have been working on this sweet blanket fort.

Please notice the nice hammock on top and the space for storage in the back.

Rent starts at $450/month.  It is in Newton and T-accessible, after all.

Noah and his good friend Frieda at brunch. These kids sure are beautiful. Also, trouble.



Someone (Noah) found a dead cicada.

Someone (Mommy) is really trying to just acknowledge how cool they are without communicating that giant bugs really freak her out.
