Memorial Day 2012

We had a great Memorial Day weekend. The weather was really summery and hot, so perfect for getting the kiddie pool set up on the deck for the boys. I think they lived in it on Monday, with the high temps near 90 degrees.
Our yearly tradition of watching the parade in Pittsford Village stood this year, and we really enjoyed it. After the parade, we walked to the relatively new and amazingly awesome Village Bakery because I've been dying to try the place. It was AWESOME!! Greg got the " Rooster" cold-drip iced coffee, and I got a cappucino. We tried a sampling of the different pastries on the menu: scones, neopolitan, blueberry muffin, and an eclair. All were amazing.

We will be going back often for baked goods, breads, pastries, and coffee. I am so happy to see places like this and Yotality opening up in the Village. We need more good places! The Pittsford Farms Dairy has reopened with a brand new building, so that's on our list to check out soon too!

Here are some pics from the weekend.

My Instagram Obsession

First Instagram of myself!
Recently (finally) got an iPhone. Reluctant to pay the break-up fees with TMobile, but it had to be done.
I'm really loving Instagram. I can see why so many people latched on to this so fast. The different filters lend a cool feeling to pics that give them a special something-something.
I've been snapping up a storm, and now have quite the library of Instagram-ized kid pics!



First Instagram Ever!

Mother's Day Tea at School

This past Friday, I was treated to an awesome afternoon at school with the boys. Joey's teachers are extra creative and planned out a Mother's Day Tea for all of the Mom's in his class.
There were pink table cloths and pretty napkins on the tables. Joey was really excited to give me the hand made gifts he so lovingly created for me. What I thought was REALLY awesome, was that Joey even made gifts for Christopher. A heart-shaped frame with his picture, and a card too. So thoughtful!!!
Joey made this adorable apron for me

The heart shaped frame is a gift from Joey to Christopher, what a nice surprise!

Inside of my card from Joey, I am very impressed with how legible his handwriting has become.

Very sweet and thoughtful!

Life Goes On.

Feels like years since the last post! Things are so busy, there's never enough time to sit down and write about it! The big news: Chris is now a .....GREEN BELT!!! Woot! Loving Karate, and doing so well!

Christopher was awarded his Green Belt in Karate!

I just love when they ride this together. Batman and Robin!!!
