My blog is my forgotten child, the dog no one wants. I should euthanize it and call it a day but I can't. Even though I suck at keeping this thing current I do like to go back to it from time to time and read my previous posts or look at the pictures. It makes me feel like time is moving like the speed of light when I look back at posts and even my daughter doesn't know who those twin babies are. It's pretty crazy. Anyway, here are some of my favorite pictures from the last 9 months or so!

To my dear sister (who checks my blog regularly in hopes that I've updated) I am sorry that I suck. I know you understand that life is busy and finding the time to post is difficult. I can't even update my facebook status on a regular basis so plans of keeping this blog current are pointless.
This summer has been great. We have done so much stuff with the kids! We've been camping 4 times- here, here x 2 and here.
We took the kids to Storyland, to the beach, Rumble Tumble and Sprout About. We went to the Stratham Fair. We've gone to the playgrounds, we've gone for ice cream. We've played in the back yard.
We have done it all. We have probably set the standard pretty high as far as summers go and I may regret it later, but as a kid my mom always managed to have really fun summers for us and I want to give my kids the same.
Plus, we live in the tundra so when the sun is shining we need to get out and enjoy it!

Another busy weekend over here. We attended 3 different parties this weekend and by we I mean me and my little miss. The boys stayed home with dad due to the fact that the first party was smack dab in the middle of nap time and the second party was at a place that would have required way too much effort on behalf of these tired parents to watch all 3. Maybe next year we'll take all 3, if the boys don't become socially retarded due to their limited exposure to other people. I feel kind of bad for the segregation but it's hard having twins and even harder bringing them outside the confines of our child proof home. If they clung to my side like xianfern's girls do, that would be a different story but they don't. They hit the ground running and always (always) in a different direction. So for now (and probably until they at least show some signs of name recognition) they are hanging at home. They had some fun this weekend, though, despite their house arrest. The rain didn't stop them from having fun.
My little miss had a lot of fun this weekend (until the 3rd party which was a baby shower- she was the only kid there and told me on multiple occasions that the shower was boring.) She might think twice next time I tell her I'm going to one of those... I had a lovely time, though and it was nice to get together with all the preggo women in my life!

Xianfern thinks she's so smart because she can always tell my boys apart (I can NEVER tell who's who with her girls.) Here's a little test for her, although I've kept it pretty simple by only including pictures of the boys together. Good luck (though I don't think she'll need it. What I also did to keep it simple was give birth to a very non identical looking set of twins! :)
