Summer time

So Chris's vacation came to an end, as all good things must. And it was a good thing. Momma got some time to herself, went running (desperately needed), the girls spent lots of bonding time with Daddy. Interestingly, spending so much time together during the week revealed something about the girls. Saoirse, who has been obsessed with her dad since she was about 6 months old, kind of chilled out this week and rediscovered her mom. And Rowan got to spend some time with Chris and decided she's crazy about him. It's interesting how different they are like that, Saoirse really loving whoever is more unavailable, and Rowan loving familiarity. It was great that Chris got to spend more time with Rowan, though. With Saoirse being all over him most nights, it's hard for him to pay as much attention to Rowan, and I know that worries him.

We spent this last weekend at the lake, probably the last weekend of the season since we have plans for the next couple of weekends. The girls love it there. It turned out to be a great weekend, Blake and Katie came, Grandma and Grandpa were glad to see the babies, Chris got to come along this time. Six adults to two 15 month olds is just about the right ratio, I think. Chris played golf & wakeboarded. We all went for boat rides, and had a bit of an adventure on one of them when we almost sank the pontoon boat. Take home message: Keep the weight balanced!!

Grandma brought doll strollers for the girls. They loved pushing them around, and riding in them and having us push them. Rowan even took the baby out of Saoirse's stroller to add it to hers. Because two babies go in the stroller, of course.

This summer has gone WAY too fast. We've been having so much fun with these little girls, it seems like life can't get much better.

It sounds like you're having a fabulous summer with the girls. I love the pic of them standing in the water and the ones of them pushing around the strollers. Too cute!
