Beach Bebe

My beautiful sister lives with her beautiful family in Boston. I have to share a few snapshots they recently took because I keep looking at them and melting into a pile of goo.

Chicago and My Bestie

At the beginning of the month I flew to Chicago to meet up with my best friend, Tricia. We walked in the Cancer Survivor 5K.  She is a thyroid cancer survivor.


It was fun being in the city again together and we had great food and lots of fun shopping.  The absolute best part of our weekend, though, was the Segway tour we took of the lakefront on Saturday.  A huge storm came up just as we started out and we got soaked.  Despite the gale force winds and my lack of coordination and balance, we had an amazing time and by the end my stomach hurt from all the laughing.

Waiting for the train, trying to take a selfie.  This is pretty much what we looked like the whole time.

Lemonade Stand

Levi and Milo had been looking forward to running their own lemonade stand. Last Friday we had a free morning and they worked hard getting it set up.


We took advantage of the fact that there was an estate sale going on just outside our cul-de-sac. We loaded up the wagon and our neighborhood's first pop-up shop was up and running.

We sold a lot of lemonade to each other but they also had several generous customers.

Happy Birthday, Charlie!

Cutie Pie Nephew Charlie had his first birthday at the end of May.  His party was a smashing success at the "Farm Park".  My boys are still talking about it.  It might have been the most fun they've had there and if you've read this blog for any length of time you know that is saying something.

I was on a previously scheduled trip to Chicago and missed the festivities.  You can see more pictures of all the fun here.

Floriday- Time to Head Home

The kids posing in the 'Oxford' t-shirts Nana brought back for them from a recent business trip to England.
Waiting to board the plane and head home.
This is how Levi summed up the weekend in his journal.

Florida- Celebrating Roebin's Birthday

While there, we had a small celebration in anticipation of Roebin's first birthday.
The tower of candies was a labor of love by Kelly and is a part of the traditional Korean first birthday.
Singing.
Cake!
Yay!
Presents!
Is it strange that I want to cover that foot with kisses then put it in my mouth??
What a beautiful boy.

Here are some pictures from Roebin's Dol, a traditional Korean first birthday, which took place after they got back home to Boston.
