Here are some photos from April 26. We just had a small family celebration for James. We are having a larger celebration for his first Holy Communion and Birthday in May.He didn't actually get these moon shoes, but this photo was too cute not to post.
We currently do not have this weather anymore, but I thought I would share some photos from last weekend when it was in the mid 80s.
Yes, several times children would slide off the end of the slip and slide and into the side of the planter box. When you have a sloped yard that is the size of a master bedroom, safetly measures go out the window.

Seven years ago today I began the most amazing and rewarding adventure of my life. I became a mother. James Malachi Robert was born during a snow storm. We owned no car, no taxi would come during the storm, when we finally found transportation we got lost on the way to the hospital. Once we arrived, we learned that the hospital had lost power due to the storm and there was no way to page the doctor. James was born at a Harvard teaching hospital and a group of young interns witnessed his birth. The nervous man who caught James smiled widely and announced "It's a boy!" It was one of the happiest days of my life.
James gets to share his birthday with my Grandma Phyllis. I believe he came five days early just to please her.

On Saturday the kids and I went to a local Earth Day Festival. The weather was perfect so we parked at the SVC campus and walked down to the Nature Reserve for the festival.James ran the entire way. That child has so much energy!
I made the kids stare into the sun so that I could try to get a photo of the four of them with the basilica in the background.
Part of the fun was getting to plant some seeds. Here they are each planting some Black-eyed Susans.
Henry was much more interested in burying the shovels and dumping dirt on his sandals.
Isaac smiled the whole time.
Margaret chilled in the stroller.
There was also a spinning wheel. Henry was the first to discover it and he was already at it by the time the rest of us got over there.
Everyone had to try it.
Some college students were offering tattoes and so James and Isaac had to each get one.
