We are back from our summer trip to Maine! We did all kinds of wonderful and summery things, and got to see family, who we might not see again until next summer.
We had ice cream almost every night, which the boys adored. They called it "Ry-Ry's," for Eric's brother Ryan, who owns the business and makes the ice cream. They are still asking for Ry-Ry's after dinner each night, and I have explained that we can only go when we're at Memere and Pepere's. But it seems that hope springs eternal.

The boys are really wonderful these days, too sweet and too funny. At dinner they each took a moment to climb on my lap and give me hugs and kisses. Our friends' little girls didn't do that. Maybe it is true that boys really do love their mommies more? In any case, we are having so much fun together. They are loving the summer, and all the swimming and outdoor playing. Here they are on the way home tonight, holding hands with Daddy and each other. They are so adorable that my heart aches!
