After the beach, Anne, Kristin, and I stopped at a local shopping center. I wanted to find a little something for Henry, and an even littler something for his October-arriving baby brother. Last year I found Henry little Crocs that he wore until they were just too small. This year, I found a navy blue zip-up hoodie with "Emerald Isle" embroidered on the front. New baby gets a onesie with a lobster on the front that says "got butter?". Cute.
Anne and Will are playing checkers right now, and she just triple-jumped him. There was whooping and holloring that could be heard a mile away! Now they're back into the game, contemplating the next move, and the move after that. I can feel the tension! Checkers is a wonderful game, and we always play it at the beach house. I seem to never play it anywhere else.
To wrap up this wonderful week, here are some pictures that will provide me happy memories for a long time to come.
