Boys' Photo Shoot

Our good family friend and talented photographer, Jennifer Kitchen McGann, offered to take some pictures of the boys (including my boys and my nephew, Matthew.) They turned out SO cute! Thanks a lot, Jen, for sharing your gift with us!

Meeting the Goodwin Twins

My friend, Kim, came from California with her four kids to visit! Alexis is 4, Cole is 3, and her twins - Ava and Jake - just turned 1 last week! That's right: four kids under the age of four! We had a really nice time together and look forward to getting together again when our babies will remember it. :)

Crystal Beach

We joined my brother-in-law and his family for dinner at Crystal Beach last Thursday. What a beautiful place! Their beach house is a stone's throw from the pool and the lake is just a short walk, too! We had a great time visiting with the nieces and nephew... and the boys enjoyed their first visit to the beach!

Dominic Cinelli

Our friends, Brian and Jamie Cinelli, gave birth to their first child on August 12, 2009. Dominic Dennis Cinelli was born at 9:36am, weighed 7 lbs, 1 oz and was 21 inches long. Both mommy and baby are beautiful and doing really well! These pictures were taken just ten hours after Dominic's arrival!

Boppin' in Da Bumbos

The boys just love their Bumbo seats from the Lombardo/Odom cousins! We set them up so they could see eachother and then enjoyed watching them stare and laugh at eachother!

Jack (L) and Ben (R)
Benjamin is such a smiler!

Jonathan giggles for his nana

Benjamin looks guilty of something in this picture

Jonathan enjoys their Elmo rattle/teether, especially now when it seems everything ends up in their mouths!
