walking the yard with aunty

The twins took the wagon for a spin again this afternoon. It’s a beautiful afternoon. The asters are covered with butterflies, bees and beetles. The sugar maples are pretty this year. The twins love to be outside. And it was great to get out of the kitchen for a change! 🙂 ~~Rhonda

They are being so good. They have a pretty regular schedule. Get up, eat, play, nap, get up, eat, play, nap, get […]

our older son’s wedding

Our son and his fiancee were married on Saturday. The wedding was planned for the rose garden, but morning rain sent us indoors.
