I am long overdue for some blogging, but we recently had two get-togethers with my sister and her family. The first was in early August. Little Claire below is such a doll - a spitting image of her big brother, but with beautiful strawberry blonde hair. She also is a little more chubby than her brother at the same age - I absolutely love those arm rolls! And big brother Matthew is not necessarily always a fan of the camera but his face is just too cute in this picture:

The proud mama with her baby girl: Uncle Brian reading to the boys. This was the first time they really played together (or beside each other at least) and it was really cute. I am sure they will be up to all sorts of mischief in no time:

A few weeks later, my sister's family rented a house in Brigantine, NJ. We made a trip down for an overnight visit and full day at the beach. Evan was still a big fan of the beach, though he did get knocked down once by a wave and took a little convincing after that. I never get tired of pictures like these ones:

And yet again, these two boys were enjoying each other's company. Whatever Matthew did, Evan would copy . . . even if it meant jumping on the furniture against their parents' wishes:And yet another:

We spent the evening on the boardwalk in Atlantic City before heading back to Pennsylvania. It was quite comical because Evan prefers his buggy to a stroller. And in order to get from the parking garage to the boardwalk, we had to walk through a casino. Evan was being pushed in his buggy and people were stopping us to comment on his wheels. He loved the boardwalk and the ice cream we got to end the night. I'm sure we have lots more memories ahead of us just like these.
