Cora Turned Two!

Our much-loved Cora turned two-years-old last week. It's hard to believe that this spunky, fun-loving girl was a newborn only two short years ago!

Birthday cupcakes and a 'big girl' chair!

She wears us all out!

Our Princesses

Okay, I am admittedly falling behind on the blog; we're a little busy, in a good way!



Sisters rockin' the sister princess dresses; Elsa & Anna from 'Frozen'

The last three weeks we have had four groups of house guests. All have proved wonderfully entertaining for us and the girls. Our summer of fun isn't over yet, either.

Last week Grandma and Grandpa Hayes came to help me some while Alex was in Moscow (thank you!). Much fun was had by all. Of course, getting pictures of the grandparents with all the kiddos never really happened. Talk about hearding cats.

Happy Baby


Setting up the pools


Water fun!

This past weekend my family came in for a quick visit. It was great for the girls to see their Aunt, Uncles, and cousin on their first Ithaca visit. Grandma & Grandpa were much enjoyed, too!


Heading up the Taughannock Gorge Trail; one of our favorites!


Noelle, getting her feet wet with Grandpa

Enjoying the waterfront park

Now, it's time for some R&R before the next round of summer fun =)


Hanging out on the parents' bed; always a favorite
