We Are On the Verge of Something Big...

And that would be Luce's fifth, yes FIFTH, lost tooth. But don't take our word for it, why not hear it from the horse's mouth (so to speak)? While surely this was the most momentous event for the family, there were other things to do besides marvel at our gap-toothed child... like go to princess birthday parties (Carmen decided she wanted to be a Nebraska Husker princess), have coffee dates with Mama Fran and of course, go to the zoo.  It has been a fantastic summer so far, and you haven't even seen the pictures from camp yet! The author of this blog is currently editing those for public consumption... stay tuned.

Stars, Stripes and Sisters Forever...

This is a shot of Lucia consoling Carmen after a little dust up (Carmen accidentally head butted my chin) and as I was off icing my face, Luce was trying to calm a crying Carmen. Mama Mer was of course, standing by with her iPhone to catch the love. I was fine by the way, thanks for asking. 

Ok, so our fourth of July was spent much like the rest of our summer - - at the beach, up in Maine.  We had some great company and played until we were pooped. Then it was back to Nonne and Papas for some sparkler action. And if sparklers wasn't enough fun to knock the girls' socks off, a trip to Funtown with the cousins certainly did. Oh, and what's a holiday without a trip to the ER for Carmen? Luckily, she handled it like a champ once the medicine kicked in. 

Let's see... what else did we do this month to beat the heat? Oh right, we allowed mental patients from the local hospital the opportunity to come hose down the kids. We're nice like that.
