noah and henry are playing in the sandbox. they are in the process of building the statue of liberty. the project requires written plans and tunnels. and water.

noah goes inside to get on his bathing suit, henry follows.

walking into the house henry turns to me and says "i wuv noah so much. i wuv noah so much.".

we approach noah and repeat what henry has said. noah replies "aw, i love you so much too, henry. come here, i want to tell you a secret.". he then gives henry a big hug and kiss.

he apparently has hugged henry too tightly, because henry truns around and smacks him.

i guess this is what they call brotherly love.

Here are some pictures of William's first trip to the Aquarium. His first trip to Boston, too, which was extra cool for me. He slept in his sling the entire time. :)

The Aquarium was great, although very crowded. I don't recommend visiting during summer vacation, unless you get there when they first open. Last time we went we did so on a Sunday morning and it was perfect. I felt like I needed a shield around me to protect William from the bumps a crowd invites. I walked with my hands around him, clearly indicating that bumping into my babe would be a mistake. I'm a little bit crazy when it comes to my kids, as you all probably know.

Check out the extra friendly seal in this picture.

And a nice family shot taken by a friendly newly engaged couple.

Lemonade anyone?

Noah has really been enjoying school, which I am so thankful for. When he is there I get to have some special time with Henry and William, but primarily Henry at this point because William is often asleep. I am loving it. We had a lemonade and toast party today, and it was lovely.

The boys and I started working on a butterfly garden after William was born. A tribute to him, and to my outdoor loving fellas who worked so hard at being patient with my ill tempered, sedentary ways during the last weeks of my pregnancy. We just finished mulching it the other day. Here are some recent pics. The butterflies are loving it.

He's been working on this for a while now. One of the many things that makes me feel like my oldest boy is getting...big.
