Amelia Keefe is here!


Our good friends Erin and Vince Welcomed Amelia Kathleen into the world on March 10th almost three months ago!

I woke up to and early call from Erin. She said she thought she might be in labor, and would call me back after she spoke with the nurse. About 2o min later, I heard little knocks at our door. There were two Keefe boys coming to spend the duration of the delivery with us. We waited to hear something all day. Around 4pm I said to Mark I wonder what is going on? We pressed on got dinner for everyone, started to get them ready for bed, and then the phone rang. I raced to the phone and then I heard a baby crying. I could hardly wait to find out if Erin finally got her baby girl or not?

When she said it was a girl, I jummed up and down with happiness. Mark and I could hardly wait to go and meet her. We were able to the next evening. This little girl has been wanted for so long, and I am over joyed she is finally here! I have enjoyed getting to know her over the past few months and look forward to many fun times ahead.

A Saturday Afternoon at Leonardo's Basement


Mark and I tried to figure out things to do with the boys this winter that were different and fun. I recently learned of a program called Leonardo'd basement. The program offers different activities for kid's such as Lego building, Bird house building, and many other activities. So we decided to do a family day this past April. We did the bird house building class.

First we had to get all the materials. It was kind of chaotic!

Once we had all our materials it was time to measure and drill every thing. Isak really got into it. So did Christopher & Harrison.

Isak got a little distracted and went off to start his own project.

Play Date!

Isak had one of his best friends from school William over a few weeks ago. They spent the majority of the time dressed up as super hero's. It was so cute I could not resist posting the pictures.

The trip was short and sweet but we made the best of it. We came home relaxed and ready to jump back into life with the boys! Cant wait to do it again hopefully sooner the next time around.
