Playing Catch Up

It's been a bit of a whirlwind around here lately, not that that's anything out of the ordinary for us, but...  Mike was off from work for 4 days over the holiday weekend, and as soon as he left us to head back to the office on Monday, my mother in law arrived from Pittsburgh for a visit.

The last several days have been spent at the lake, at the pool, running errands, entertaining, and celebrating the birth of one very special little boy... hence the radio silence on the blog.

Since I haven't had a whole lot of time to sit down at the computer and write lately , I thought I would bombard you instead, with a whole bunch of photos to catch you up to speed on the events of the last week or so. Here's to hopinh that I can get back to business in the very near future, and return to some regularly scheduled blog posting.

On Thursday we took a cruise up to Lake George, which was beautiful, but not exactly relaxing since I spent the majority of the day trying to deter Ella from eating sand-coated veggie sticks, and taking turns with Mike freezing swimming with Max.

It rained pretty hard off and on, most of the day on the fourth, but we still ventured out to do some strawberry picking before the season passed us by. Then we whipped up a batch of homemade strawberry jam with our haul.  There is just something so satisfying about making and canning your own jam... I'm sure we'll be slathering this stuff on everything for weeks to come.

After all of that excitement, it was on to preparing for Nana's arrival... cleaning, more house decorating, and stocking the fridge.

Lastly, we celebrated Max turning 3, with a low key day full of trips to the toy store, presents, and chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles... per the birthday boy's request.  How in the heck my baby is already 3 is totally beyond me... but we are so proud of the little man he is growing into.

I hope you all had a wonderful fourth!
