apology

I need to apologize to everyone who has sent us gifts. We have received so many wonderful and thoughtful gifts for Eloise (and some for Greta too). I wrote most of the thank you notes MONTHS ago, yet for some reason have not been able to get my act together enough to address, stamp and mail the little things. So to those who sent gifts, thank you. Thank you for thinking of us. We really appreciate everything. If Eloise isn’t playing with the toys, Greta certainly is, and Greta shows the toys to Eloise. Soon, the real thank you notes will be in the mail. Thanks for your understanding.

memorial day parade

On Memorial Day we headed to our local parade. The parade started a little late and was a little slow at parts, but all in all we had a good time and Greta seemed to enjoy her first parade. We found a nice spot alongside a building so that we were standing in the shade. It was quite hot and humid out, but we all survived. I definitely should have packed more water though as Greta chugged almost the whole thing by herself. Here are some pictures from the parade.

Greta got a little scared from the gunfire, so Matt told her to cover her ears. She did it very seriously.

The fire trucks were super pretty and all freshly shined.
