An Excursion to "Color Me Mine"

Jack just loves "hanging out" with his older cousins!

Best Buds!

Jack, Taylor, and Trey spent the afternoon at "Color Me Mine," painting all sorts of goodies! It's interesting how the activity accentuates their personalities: Jack is a left-handed, right-handed, both-handed painter (rather like he bats left handed and throws right handed). Trey is meticulous - careful and precise. Taylor mixes all the paints together (creating interesting shades of brown, hastily applying the the resulting mixture with impatience, so that she can proceed to the next thing!

Bath Time!

After their swimming lessons, Jack and Coco take a bath (and continue "swimming"!) together...

Alex is oblivious!

Jack is Two!

Happy Birthday to Jack! (Coincidentally, "Happy Birthday" is Jack's favorite song!)
Can I have my cake and tricycle, too?!!

Wow! A Baseball Cake!

Alex is content just to hang out...

"I love my water table!"

Teresa and Mike move!

Teresa and Mike have (at last!) moved into their new house. Here are a few scenes of moving day...

Wedding Weekend in the UK!

The BBC is "right on" with its depiction of village life! Here are Kim and Craig with the "Vicar of Kimbolton" - a real character whose work day centers around the pastry shop (midmorning) to the pub (afternoons and evenings)!

Here is a view of the church interior. St. Andrew's was built in the 12th century, and is an absolutely charming little church.

The family gathers to begin our long-weekend of celebration with a dinner.

Craig and Kim had arranged for an abundance of celebratory activities, including a wine-tasting...

...and a "dinner punt" through Cambridge. A great good time was had by all!
