As May winds down

This has been on my dishwasher for a few weeks now. I have no idea what it means. Lindsay is not a duck? Lindsay does not have to duck? Lindsay doesn't like ducks? Very confusing. Hopefully she will learn to spell some more words soon so that this may be clarified.
Lindsay and the little sisters of Lauren's teammates at a game in Basking Ridge. It was too foggy that day to watch the game, and Lindsay and the girl wearing the matching shirt disappeared in a cloud for a while. Good times.

We went to Bergen County Zoo on Lindsay's birthday, which is a small zoo within a county park. It took maybe an hour and a half to see all the animals in the zoo. This was right before we left, the girls didn't want to pose.

Lindsay's favorite present - Barbie doll Trichelle. Still amazed that Grampie knew which Barbie she wanted.

Lindsay making her own pizza on her birthday. Pizzeria Uno offered her a job. Trufax.

Lindsay's school party

On Fridays, her class rides trikes around the school. Lindsay got to be the line leader:Lindsay also got to tell her teacher all about her - how old she was going to be tomorrow, what she wants for her birthday, and what her favorite food is.

I wish I'd managed to capture how many deer crossed this field - it had to be close to 30, all does with their fawns. I've never seen that many deer in one place, and so unconcerned about the people around. Amazing.
I captured this on a walk through the park yesterday - I'd been waiting for the ducklings and goslings to make their debut - and here are some very fuzzy-looking babes. They had 8 babies. Oh my goodness!

Mother's Day in Boston

We had a great day. We left early in the morning by car to join Alec in Boston - he had to be there for a conference. We enjoyed springtime in this fun city. Since we stayed at the Park Plaza, we spent the afternoon of our first day there in the Public Garden. We rode the swan boats, went on a carousel, and the girlies got soaked in a sprinkler. We walked back to the hotel via Tremont and Boyston Streets so that the girlies could see Emerson - the college that Alec and I met at, and Alec and Grampie graduated from - Lauren thought this was pretty cool, well...she was also freezing because of the sprinkler. We got changed, and headed out for a Mother's Day dinner at Legal Seafood. A pretty awesome day.
