Every time Jon brings up our time in London the subject always turns to food. Now that I’m pregnant that means an automatic craving. Like the times we spent on Portobello Road eating Falafels. That conversation sent us up to Whole Foods on Saturday afternoon to buy some.
We walked one down to Megan who was babysitting Esme and Milo. Lucy stayed a few minutes to play
Yesterday we took Chloe and Lucy hiking. First hike of the season and I’m happy to report that there were no bear sightings
I love these warm weather weekends!!
I got to enjoy a pizza date with Megan a few weeks ago after her eye doctor appointment.
Jon painted our dining room a very pretty grey a few weeks ago.
I think Chloe is missing her yoga class. We’re gonna have to sign her up for another one soon.
Always ready to pose
We took the girls to the Harvard Museum of Natural History last weekend.
Emma was home for a few days last week because she was sick. Looking forward to summer break!!
Lucy is obsessed with taking belly shots!!
I kinda am too!
Yesterday was crazy hair and hat day. Lucy wasn’t crazy about messy or wild hair so we went with the hat. I think it lasted about 10 minutes and then she put her head band on her head.
Spring is finally here which means cute spring dresses!! Loved Chloe’s outfit this morning!!
Happy Birthday to the best mom in the world! I love you!!
Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. This year was extra busy and extra exciting!! We started off at home doing an egg hunt with the girls. Not too many 18 year olds get to hunt for eggs, but this was a special hunt. Somewhere in our house was a golden egg. Inside that egg was either blue or pink M&M’s letting the girls know whether they would be getting a baby brother or a baby sister.
It’s a boy!! I think we were all a little more than shocked to find that out. I honestly didn’t care what we were having. I just wanted to make sure that this little baby was healthy. After you turn 35 the doctors, websites, magazines, message boards Etc.. scare the heck out of you. I would have been completely happy with another girl, these girls are my world. But, when the doctor called to tell me my results I couldn’t stop crying and shaking. I am BEYOND thrilled to have a boy. I can’t wait!!!
After that excitement the girls finished going through their baskets. Bath bombs from Lush were a huge hit this year.
Mimi and Baba had another hunt at their house
Then it was off to my parents to celebrate Easter and my mom’s birthday (which happens later this week). I also got to spend time with my brothers and their families and let them know that we were having a boy! More shock!
After all the excitement of the day we had to drop Emma back off at school.
We already miss her!!
The holidays are officially over and now it’s time to move on to Friary Family Birthday Season, which will now run until October!
