Life is Good!

We had a great school vacation week that ended with a visit to the zoo and to the beach. We have had 4 straight days of beautiful weather and spent a lot of time outside. Everyday Lily is introduced to a new experience and handles them all so well. Lily is just so adaptable and there is nothing better then seeing new things through her eyes. Everything is magical and wonderful. Being at the beach on Sunday was crazy and emotional. Crazy becasue we have never sat on a beach in 80 degree temperatures in Mass. in the month of April! Emotional becasue seeing my three children together on the beach has only been a dream for the past 3 summers. Finally the picture was complete. Lily took it all in and then sat down and acted like she had been shoveling sand her whole life! I just sat in awe as I looked at my daugher on the beach..she was a natural! Pat and I both were very emotional seeing our "family" together where it all started...Minot Beach, the place of our engagement!
