Last days of summer...

We've been enjoying the last few weeks of the summer making sure to get outside to play and taking last minute beach trips just to watch the sunset over the ocean. It's been a wonderful summer this year....


Now we're busy getting ready for a visit from Jeremy's mom and dad back East. We are cleaning out from under the beds, washing extra linens, and putting things away that have needed to find a permanent spot in the house once and for all. The boys are so excited and we know they will completely relish and love the attention and extra laps to sit on. There are blankets to snuggle on the couch with, plenty of books to read, and many many memories to make. We can't wait! Oh and Fred, just so you know...we made lots of strawberry jam and apple butter especially for your visit. :-)

"And a big white hen standing on one leg. And under the hen was a quiet egg."

- Big Red Barn

We've been looking every day knowing that the time was coming. We didn't make it out there yesterday until the afternoon so this first little egg got a few curious pecks. Still, it's so little and so perfectly oval. A pinkish brown with tiny white specks. Our first egg!
