Emily’s Farm

This past weekend my friend Emily was kind enough to host us for a farm visit. She boards her horse at a nearby farm, and we stopped by to check it out. There were pigs, rabbits, goats, chickens, horses, dogs, swing sets, a tire swing and a trampoline. It was a 3 year old’s paradise. We even got to see Emily ride around for a few minutes (bareback no less due to some saddle-finding difficulties).DSC_2557

No High!

Although she hasn’t used a highchair for months at home, Kaya tends to get a bit jealous of Laney’s new ability to sit in a highchair in restaurants. So, we had an official highchair graduation celebration the other night at home.

The cake reads, “No High” and then there’s a plastic chair. Turns out it’s kind of hard to write letters on a cake without one of those icing writing tools.

Congrats to Kaya for her future of big girl chairs!


My little fish

Laney was not so keen on the cold water in our pool at the beach this year – but boy did she like the heated pool at our Boston hotel. Maybe reminded her of her birth! And Kaya now will jump in and sink to the bottom and think it’s the greatest thing on Earth – I think she might learn to swim quickly now that she’s not afraid to put her head under.

The highlight of our Boston trip was meeting Baby Audrey – the gorgeous progeny of my freshman year roommate(s) at Emory, Lynn and Edward. She is only a few months younger than Laney, and I predict they will be playmates for life. She is also going to be the envy of the Rose girls, because as far as I can tell, she has the latest and greatest of all available baby equipment.
