Despite the technical difficulties, I really want to write a quick recap of the past few days because they've been wonderful!
Friday was unofficially COUSIN day! My cousin Michelle spent the morning with us. She came heavily loaded with presents for the girls and culinary delights for the adults. My husband is considering leaving me for her... he was THAT excited about her veggie lasagna. Oh well, at least he's keeping it in the family ;)
After our afternoon naps, the girls and I drove to our favorite ice cream place (Shreffler's) for a play-date with Jake's cousin, Jen, and her daughter Hailey. She is the coolest 3-year-old. A bit precocious and a lot delightful. Here are the kissing cousins (or err... 2nd cousins or umm... 1st cousins once removed or ...)
On to Saturday... my mother called me in the morning with the offer to take my grandma, me and the girls to the “May Mart”. It was a GORGEOUS day to walk around the park and visit with the gorgeous spring flowers. The best part was being treated to lunch !
|unedited to better showcase the good semaritans work.... thanks for the shadows as opposed to the fountain. that's precisely why we stood there!|
Moving on to Sunday... MOTHER's DAY! Jake knocked my socks off with a thoughtful and OBSERVANT gift. I had admired (begged for) this necklace while on our babymoon in Berkeley Springs this winter. Never did I expect to actually receive this beauty. Hubby said that I truly deserved it :) awww...

Here are a few pics of me with my raison d'existence (one of whom I've distracted with a sheet of stickers and I will now spend the rest of my day extracting them off of various furnishings...and baby limps. Oh, motherhood...)
and my favorite:
