Will, 2 years old

 Will's 2nd birthday somehow came and went in a flash.  We did open presents and even light a candle on some fancy cupcakes, but somehow this is the only cute picture I could find to document his day.
Will seems to be happiest with his cars at the moment:  "pay caars" is his daily request.  He carries around Woody, Buzz and the baddie (Zurg) all day (and night) and his favorite thing to watch is Little Einsteins.  He is starting to have a preference what he wears, loves to dance and is still amazing at jumping on the trampoline and kicking a soccer ball.  He is such a fun kid to have around and is becoming more like everyone's buddy than our little baby boy.  Happy Birthday Will-man!

Imperial War Museum, Duxford

With Ashley out of town for the weekend, Anthony took the kids to the manliest museum he could find: the Imperial War Museum near Cambridge

First Day of School

All three "big kids" at school all day now.  I still can't believe Matthew is big enough to do this (well, by UK standards anyway).  Just me and Will now, good thing another one is on the way!!

Goodbye Summer

I really felt like this was our first official summer holiday since it was our first time breaking from school.  It went entirely too fast, in my opinion (a mere 6 weeks here in the UK).  We tried to keep it simple and relaxing with lots of pajama days, but got excited about ticking off our own "Summer Ideas Checklist." 

We celebrated our last day of summer vacation at Clacton-on-the-Sea, flying kites, collecting shells and playing with friends.  After dark, we had one last late night using up our firework reserve and sending off a lantern.  Goodbye Summer, we already miss you!
