Our trip to the Cape in photos

We had many adventures!

We found out that Benjamin likes rice cereal:
And he likes eating his bib:

We were able to enjoy our own breakfasts while Benjamin got excited watching Elmo:
We went to the pond, and the boys tried out the canoe.  They hated being in it at the same time.
But Asher didn't mind being in it alone!
We also went to the beach.  First on a cold and cloudy day when their aunt Elana insisted we get out of the house:

And then on a nicer day, at the National Seashore, where Asher tried out his sea legs:
And Benjamin snuggled with Grandpa Nick:
Asher and his daddy had a good nap on the comfortable couch:
And read the New York Times over breakfast at our favorite breakfast spot, The Wicked Oyster:
And enjoyed watching his MeeMa Alison eat lobster!
While Benjamin can't decide what he wants to try first-- root beer or real beer:
In case you can't tell from the photos, we had a great time on vacation.  Benjamin and Asher seem to be maturing more everyday.  Benjamin can roll from his back to his tummy now, and does so all the time.  Asher has discovered squealing, and now it sounds like we have a little dolphin in the house!  They are both getting better at soothing themselves to sleep at night.  It is so adorable, Benjamin has taken to singing himself to sleep.  We hear him quietly saying, "La. Laaa.  Laaa..." until he falls asleep.  It makes me want to squeeze him it is so cute!  Except that would counteract my efforts to calm him down and get him to sleep.

Both boys are giggling and laughing, especially when we pretend to eat their ribs.  I think they're getting ticklish!  It is amazing how much more personality they have, and how much change happens in these short months.

Now it is back to real life, and summer is winding down.  I have that back-to-school blue feeling even though I'm not a student anymore.  But I am enjoying the cooler weather, and all the walks we can take now that it's not so hot out there!


  1. Aw I love the photos! So cute! Seems like you guys had a great time.

  2. Snuggling with Grandpa Nik is the cutest picture ever!
    If your mom ever gets bored with your boys she can certainly come visit us in Wisconsin! ;)
