Buddies

29 Aug

Ruby was so sweet playing with Joe today. She tucked him in to “take a nap” and read to him from Daddy’s favorite storybook. They are going to have do much fun together in the years to come.

Jersey Shore Outlets

26 Aug

I can’t believe that the summer is almost over! Matty and I decided to come back to Jersey for Labor Day weekend and then realized that it’s upon us. Rather than doing a four hour drive twice in five days the kids and I decided to stay with Mom-Mom and Popsie for the week. Poor Matty has to work, so he drove back home yesterday.

Today Mom and I took the kids to the Jersey Shore Outlets for a little shopping. Ruby was pretty good so she got to ride on a little helicopter and then play at the playground as a reward.

Ruby pulled herself atop this castle with pure upper-body strength:

We went to an awesome splash park today, which of course Ruby loved. She is so full of life!

Two Months

25 Aug

Joe is two months old today! He is so sweet and such an easy, fun baby, and I can’t believe we haven’t always known him.

Lavalette 2013

23 Aug

Today we had a Jersey Shore beach day in Lavalette. We met Mom’s cousin Kathy and Kathy’s niece Rosie, who Ruby just adores (she calls her “my fwiend Wosie”). It was a gorgeous day–breezy and not too hot. Joe slept pretty much the whole time but Ruby kept Popsie, Matty, and especially Rosie on their toes.

Here Ruby is relaxing:
