Just one we took at the park a few weeks ago. These photos are making me increasingly nervous these days as Evan is no light-weight anymore.

This past weekend, we headed up to the Finger Lakes in upstate NY for some family time and bachelorette fun. This first posting will be show some pics from Jessica's bachelorette party. I am matron of honor in Jessica's wedding and this trip was her last hurrah as a single woman. We headed to Seneca Lake for a weekend of R&R. It was perfection. There are really not too many more peaceful places on this earth:

I recently found this old picture of myself at around the same age as Evan. There's no denying the resemblance. When Brian saw this, he said "aww, you looked like such a cute little boy". My picture was also recently shown at a baby-picture-guessing contest at work. And everyone said it looked like I was being decapitated. The safety technology has come a long way on swingsets.

. . . Either a really good baseball player, as demonstrated by his hitting abilities. He could throw a ball with pinpoint accuracy before he could walk. And he can hit off a tee pretty well for his age.
. . . Or a Howard Stern fan. Brian has taught Evan to say "Ok boss, Whatever you say boss" when I ask him to do something. If you've ever listened to the show, this will be familiar to you. He does it in his best "Baba Booey" accent, which means "boss" is pronounced as "boff".
He's at such a cute phase right now . . . when his finger is not up his nose :)

It's been awhile since I've put up any new pictures of Eric. Now that I'm back to work, my free time for taking pictures and blogging is pretty much non existent. But here are some pics of our little peanut. First, sitting in his bumbo. Evan was too big to really enjoy the bumbo - his thighs got stuck. Eric, on the other hand, fits right in it.

Last night we headed out to the Goshen Country Fair for the evening. Upon first arrival, Evan was terrified of one ride that was just a big loop that a roller-coaster would ride on (upside down ride). It's not like we were asking him to ride on this - we just had to walk by it to get to the other rides. And he was crying and saying "I don't like this." When we finally got past the ride, he kept looking back at it like it was going to attack him. In any case, we decided to give some of the little-kid rides a try and we weren't sure how he'd react. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't do any ride that we couldn't ride next to him on. But he enjoyed the car ride and the carousel on which we could accompany him. All I had was my iphone to take pics with but here are the few pictures we got:
In addition, the fair has cows, goats, sheep & chickens to look at. He had a great time getting to pet the cows and laughed hysterically when they moo-ed. Hopefully he'll get a little more brave on the rides as the years go on!
