Catching Up With the Joneses

Back towards the beginning of August, my dear friend Story and her girls came to visit for a couple of days.

Since the boys (Abel and his dad) were going to a Sox game, Story and I decided to make sure that Gwendolyn had some special fun of her own.

We had a morning of "crafting" that involved colored paper, stamps, paper punches, markers, and other such fun things.

We ate Thai food for lunch, wandered through thrift stores in downtown Beverly, and then went to Orange Leaf in Salem for frozen yogurt.

Gwendolyn enjoyed using my iPhone camera.  I think her photos turned out pretty artsy.

So there you have it: the experience through the eyes of a four year old.

After eating our yogurt, we walked to the waterfront, where we learned some history:

Gathered up rocks and shells:

And saw an old ship:

The visit also involved violin playing by Story's cute children, staying up late talking about life, and lots of oohing over how cute our babies are.

What a difference two and a half months makes, right?  The above photo was taken on August 8th, about a week before Nell turned three months old.

Here's a photo from May 17th, when Nell was not quite two days old.

{Wow, even my eyes were swollen from the IV fluids...}

Come visit again soon, Joneses.

{Or perhaps Nell and I should take a trip to Virginia!}
