Wings of Paradise

In May we celebrated Kristin's very first mother's day!  As I look back on these pictures, I'm amazed at how much our little babies have grown in 5 months!  Friends and family warned us that they would grow fast, but who knew it'd be this fast!?

For Mother's Day, the kids and I crafted a special home-made card with pictures and some finger painting.... it was supposed to be hand prints, but as soon as they got their hands in the paint...
the card was a hit nonetheless!

 Then it was off to the Butterfly Conservatory!  We drove up to Cambridge to Wings of Paradise to see some beautiful creatures!  I was hoping that we'd be able to get some pictures of butterflies landing on the kids, but, as it turns out, butterflies must not like babies.  Oh well.

 Teddy = not thrilled with butterflies.

 Emma looking a little sleepy - missing her afternoon nap!

Josh was very curious!
 Teddy = still not thrilled.  Turns out, butterflies aren't as exciting as football games.  Who knew?  But this is Mother's Day, Teddy, we sacrifice....

 The kids were pretty beat at the end of the day... and so were we!

 Looks like Mama's happy though, I think her day was a success!

 After a long day, Daddy gets his boys ready for bed!

Stay Tuned!  June was filled with first's too!  Swimming, high chairs, Father's Day and the Baby Dedication!

Looks like a great day you all had on Mother's Day. Wow... those kids sure have changed, huh? I can't get over how fast Emma's hair has grown since these pics!!
