happy 3rd birthday sissy!!!

sarah, we are so proud of the little girl you have become!!! you are so "grown up" and still a baby all at the same time! your many faces keep us laughing and on our toes! you are the light of our lives and we can't imagine a day without you! little drew already tries to be just like you--and we are so glad you will be there to teach him for the rest of your lives!!!
love, mommy and daddy

visit to the children's museum with mimi...early august.

sarah's first bike...

at the beginning of august, we gave sarah her first bike (an early birthday present). she is having a bike birthday party, so we were hoping she could learn to ride the 2 wheeler with training wheels before the big party day! so far, no such luck :) but, she is enjoying wearing her dora helmet all the time! as you can see, sarah and drew were big helpers during the assembly process again!

a dinner date with the york' early august!

looks like we are in trouble already!!!

what a surprise!!!

pop pop called one saturday morning at the beginning of august telling us that he had a surprise for the kids! wow! what a treat! pop pop and nana brought over an awesome train table that they found at a garage looks like it has NEVER been touched! it has all the pieces to build an entire train track plus all the little touches like RR crossing signs, etc. all of the wonderful teeny tiny pieces are waiting on drew to get a little older, but the table is front and center in our playroom now! thanks for the fantastic gift!!! wasn't pop pop so lucky to have so much "help" putting the table together?!?
