Three Musketeers

Many moons ago when I was in law school I was inseparable from my two best friends. Now we're all married (sort of ;)) with kids and living in different cites/states. We had a chance to get together on Sunday and I don't think there's a place in the world I would have rather been. If only I could transplant Jen and Beth to be my neighbors on both sides so we could bar-b-q every weekend with our kids, some squirt guns, a bouncy house and some glow sticks. It doesn't get any better than that! Love you girls so much.

Raystown Lake

Last week we were invited to join my brother and his family to camp on Raystown Lake. the kids had an absolute blast. We went boating, jet skiing, hiking, fishing and s'more making. Hughie had a bit of a mishap with a falling fishing rod and a hook that essentially pierced his earlobe, but he bounced right back with a little TLC and neosporin and caught his first fish. I got to spend a lot of time bonding with my nieces Maya and Ava and am so grateful to Jason and Andrea for letting us tag along. The wide open spaces and fresh air did wonders for clearing my mind.

Hughie is obsessed with all sports, but right now he is particularly enamored with baseball. Since we've moved back to York with Mimi we go to watch our local team, the York Revolution, frequently. My parents have housed one of the Revs, Keoni, for 3 years now and Hughie LOVES Keoni. Recently Hughie acquired a Revs jersey and baseball cap. He wore them to a game and kept asking me for a baseball. He knew that if he had the hat and jersey, he should have a ball. I guess Keoni is a mindreader because he summoned us to the dugout to give Hugh his first real game ball, with dirt fresh off the infield. I thought Hughie's head was going to explode with excitement! He actually slept with the ball in the his crib for several nights after that. Last week, Hughie decided that he would pair his jersey and cap with one of my black stilettos and came clomping into the kitchen with it on. It was quite amusing. (Look closely at the picture below with Keoni, Hugh and my shoe.)

A Dark Time

The past few months have been some rough ones for me, but I know that in time the sun will shine for me again. My children are still healthy and beautiful and I am still the most blessed person that I know. I'll tell you one thing, these past few months have shown me how amazing and caring my family and friends are. Love and support is raining down in buckets and I cannot express in words how thankful I am to have so many special souls in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I have a ton of pictures to download from the past few months so that I can catch up on my blogging. I don't want to forget to record anything important. I can barely remember my name from day to day, so I need to write things down!!!
