Immunization Time

Yep, it was that time of the year. Before the boys could go to school, we took them to the doctor's office to get all their immunizations up to date. Each boy got 4 shots a piece.

Owen was a bit nervous...

but shots don't seem to phase him.

Luke actually volunteered to go first...

but he is not that big a fan of shots.

Rory also got a shot and she was not happy!

First Day of Kindergarten

The boys recently started kindergarten. Here they are the morning of their first day of school. Rory made sure she got up in time to wish them luck.

The boys sporting their bus passes.

Off to the bus stop, 3 houses up the street.

The boys were psyched to be waiting for the bus with their best bud Kullan.

Kullan's little brother Cooper also wanted to hop on the bus.

All aboard!

Summer Vacation, Part 8 - LAST STOP, Jeffersonville, NY

Least, but not last, we paid a visit to see Nana and PapPap in upstate New York. We took in one of PapPap's favorite past-times, bowling. Look at that technique! No surprise, he wound up beating us all.

The boys' cousin Moe was quite the bowler!

Luke really enjoyed learning the tricks of the trade from PapPap.

We also played some put-put...

and we could tell how much the boys have benefited from the personal golf instruction they have been getting from our neighbor Sam.

Here we all pose at hole 18. PapPap showed no mercy and he really took it to us.

We also found time to play some wiffle ball at a local park. PapPap gave the boys some hitting tips.

There was also plenty of time for snuggling with PapPap...

and Nana.

Rory really enjoyed hangin' with Nana!

Summer Vacation, Part 7 - Jellystone Park

We met up with Aunt Shannon's family at Jellystone Park. Rory just loved the pool.

Owen really liked jumping in the pool.

The boys got to hang out with their little cousin Grace...

and their cousin Amanda.

Uncle Bill and his gang joined us for the fun. Here we are swimming with the boys' cousins Chris, Tsubomi and Thomas.

Here's Luke, Amanda, Owen and Moe hangin' in the pool.

We stayed for dinner and marshmallows with the Hams and their friend Max.

Nana piled all the kids on the bus for a quick spin around the park.

The boys were psyched to pose for a pic with Yogi...

and not to be outdone, Nana posed with Cindy Bear.

Summer Vacation, Part 6 - Putnam Lake, NY

After we left PA, we paid a visit to my brother's new home in Putnam Lake, NY. All the kids (Luke, Tsubomi, Owen & Moe) enjoyed soaking up the sun.

The boys and their cousin Moe played lots of ring around the rosy in the lake.

Uncle Bill and Aunt Rika pose for a scenic pic.

All the sun and sand took its toll on Rory. She was pooped!
