Thanksgiving crafts

I got a bit choked up this morning when Jen and Wendy (Zach's daycare providers) presented me with his very first little hand/foot-tracing turkey.

The babies hit the dance floor yesterday afternoon. Saru, Ryan, Jace and Heather...and a whole lot of bubbles.


Whoa, dude...wacky lights.


Must touch bubbles.

More naked silliness

Zach takes Lilia's new Rody for a spin. He's wearing a diaper - he just looks like he's completely naked.

Plum Island stripes

Just got back from a last-minute trip to Harrisburg with a quick stop in Jersey City... more on that later. We're recovering from the disruption to Zach's sleep patterns now. Here are a couple pics from the weekend before, when we headed up to Plum Island - Zach's first trip to the place that growing up was simply "the beach," with Opa (my father). Despite being bundled up and hoisted into a backpack carrier, he seemed to enjoy the view.
