my brother and his girlfriend came up to help us paint our very 80s living room.  there wasn't alot of picture taking involved that weekend, but there was plenty of priming and painting and trying to figure out how, exactly, you get the primer off and why, exactly, we thought it would be a good idea to take on this task ourselves?

here's to family that helps you take on overly ambitious projects.
and here's to a baby that takes his naps facing the water (diva).

thursday at 10 am






a couple of us teachers- some of which are now stay and home moms and some of which wish they were stay at home moms ;) - get together every thursday for a playdate.  i get to talk to adults, tripp gets to be social, and we both always get to eat pizza.  perfect day?  yes.  it can really be that simple.

brand new, two week old baby cole stole the show this week.


my heart starts fluttering just looking at these pictures!  you are so loved, cole.

weekend with friends




this past weekend MWM had a college friend up visiting and we all took a spontaneous day trip to martha's vineyard on saturday.  it was an overcast day, which is quite perfect when traveling with little people (hot, scorching sun might be our thing, but certainly not theirs!).  we spent the day roaming the island, eating as much as we could and hoping tripp and emme would get picked up for a bugaboo sponsorship.

on sunday we went back to our beloved south boston in hopes of taking a boat ride.  on and off storms prevented that, but we made the best of it.  we grilled under the tent and snuck in the quickest boat ride known to man once the rain (seemed to have) stopped.  if its going to rain all weekend, you might as well be stuck with your best friends under a tent somewhere.



chicks! good luck tripp ;)
