Brothers and Friends?

Last week, while Jeff was away, I took the boys to the Meijer Gardens for a long morning. It was beautiful weather and the boys have really started playing TOGETHER the last couple of weeks. Most of the time, Eli didn't want me to play with him, he wanted Asher to. And once he even followed Asher to do what Asher wanted to do! Love those boys.

February? Really?

I had the privilege yesterday to visit with a childhood friend and meet her fiance. It was one of several moments over the last half a year that have made me intensely grateful for those people who have known me for longer the 12 years - people who knew me when I was knobby kneed, when I got glasses and braces in the same year, when I lived in a bathing suit all summer (chosen for it's sturdiness against the amazing damage water can do when you fly off a tube due to my father's vicious "rides").

She mentioned that she still periodically checks our blog to see if there's anything new. This was a bit ironic since I had just check the day before and thought, "February? Really? The last time I posted was February? Pictures of a frozen lake and snow men?" I had thought about posting something new, but figured, after four months, who's checking anymore.

And so, inspired by my good friend Liz, I have returned. No promises. But at the very least, there's a few updated pictures. We had a great time with our boys at Festival of the Arts downtown last weekend. So here are a few of my favorites from those two days.
