Friday night we went and had Shabbat dinner at the park with our friends:
|Adam and Charlotte on the swings|
|Benjamin and Maddie on the drums|
|Maddie, Benjamin, and Asher. 3 little monkeys!|

This morning we made brunch at Meema and Papa Nick's, and Grandpa David joined us. Charlotte had her first taste of food that wasn't breast milk- a little taste of honeydew melon.
This afternoon we attended a birthday party at our neighbors'. Our neighbor, Hila, was so creative- it was a Dora the Explorer party, and she had put out maps for the kids to color, and made each kid a backpack with their name on it. Then the kids put on their backpacks and followed the map to find the missing birthday cake. At each stop they got a little treat/favor. There was a "jungle" with plastic animals, a bubble tower with little bubble bottles, Candy Land with candy, and a gorgeous cake at the end. Asher had a great time, he has been talking about it ever since. Here are the boys eating their cake:
Being a mom is absolutely the most difficult thing I've ever done, but also the most wonderful. There are no words to describe the intensity of my love for my children, and the pride I feel in all their accomplishments. I could never have imagined how much I would adore my children, or that I would ever be this fortunate. It is a gift to me to watch them grow, even if it happens far too quickly. I am the luckiest mommy on the planet, as I tell them everyday.
