The whole obsession with sticks and water are very reminiscent of Reed! Throw in some mud and cars and you've got him pegged! I wish we could all get together and watch them wear us out!

The only way it could have been perfect is if I were there too! Man, I miss you guys.

And that little Brig... I miss him the most! (So does Calder, by the way).

Man I miss you Laura. I can't wait till summer crane / Lewis fest 2010.

A couple of my favorites:

for weeks after my bday every time I talk to Rachel reed is yelling happy birthday Emily in the background.

Asher stands at the window in Chicago shouting "big truck," evertyime a truck drives by.

Axel puts his fingers under my bum when I'm sitting down trying to push me upward while saying, " 'mon Ea-a-yee." while waving one hand in circles to join him. In other words: come on Emily let's play soccer, come on Emily let's play cars, come on Emily let's go outside.

Laura who would've thought the boys who owned our hearts would be so very little?

Laura - I loved this. Ya ya and Brig. The perfect date.
Our weather is madness. Can't wait till our night out!

I can't believe I'm just reading this now. I really need to check our blog more often. You forgot another best part of the day:

Carrie stays at home and relaxes to the max while Yah Yah entertains Brig!

Thank you so much for taking Brig to the park. He loves his Aunt Yah Yah. I love the image of him waving good bye to the sticks...
