Our Sunday with Mimi...

For Mimi's last day visiting, we relaxed around the house. It was hot so we pulled out the two swimming pools to cool off. Audrey preferred to watch, while Sierra had wild and crazy fun! See below for pics of our sunny afternoon.




Thanks for visiting Mimi! We miss you  and hope you come back soon!

Napping Together!

The girls begged their daddy to let them nap together today. So we are trying it out. This afternoon Victor put them down together in Sierra's bed!  We will see how it goes....They are so beautiful.

Great Photo of Gigi with Sierra!

A day at the zoo with Gigi!

While victor and his mom went to the providence place mall, Gigi, the girls and I went to the zoo! Below are a few photos of our day!
We're looking at zebras and wildebeests... 
The red river hog, Persephone! And today was her birthday!!! 
In honor of Persephone's birthday, the zoo had crafts and fun activity tables set up for the kids. Sierra made a butterfly and ladybug. Gigi made a crab, and I made a ladybug for Audrey and cat for the Sierra!
Sierra's ladybug! 
And, my cat for Sierra. She made the ears!
Our favorite, the seals....

And the giraffes...
...the chickens...
And the goats in the petting zoo!
It rained for a while so we camped out at the store for a bit!
Above is our family photo from the trip! It was awesome fun jumping puddles and seeing all the animals. Thanks for joining is Gigi and come back soon!

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

We spent two days touring the Met and every room of art was well worth the visit. My favorites were the European artists like Monet, Manet, Picasso, Pisaro, Rembrandt, Renoir, Vincent Van Gogh, Bonnard, and so many more! 

As a special feature, there was a "Punk" fashion exhibit, which featured the resourceful, creative and destructive fashion style that can be seen in many of todays fashions.

We spent hours perusing the Egyptian art exhibit which included huge tombs and sarcophagus moved stone by stone and piece by piece to the museum and rebuilt. 

So much to see and so little time...below are a few highlights of our days at the museum. Enjoy!

Fun in NYC

For a short getaway while Gigi visits we decided to go to New York City. So far, we've enjoyed a few pubs, seen a few shows, visited the 9/11 memorial, rode the ferry to Staten Island to see a baseball game and waked all over Times Square, Chinatown, Soho, Greenwich village, and more. Below are a few snapshots of our fun away from the girls...

So far, so good. Well post more photos after today's fun and adventure at the Met!  Thanks Gigi and Mimi for making our trip possible! We love you both! 

Gigi and the girls...

While Victor and I are vacationing in New York, Gigi is taking care of the girls. They have been having serious fun beginning with a trip to Biomes, lunch at the Wickford diner, waking through town and visiting the St. Paul's church park.
Audrey was very excited to show Gigi around her favorite marine life center, Biomes.
Our neighbor, Donna, helped take this photo of the girls at home.

And Sierra poses for Donna above. They are growing so fast. We sure miss you all while we're away!

Swinging at Town Beach!

One of the girls' favorite things about going to the beach, besides the beach, is the playground swings! 

They never miss a chance for high flying fun and giggles!

Sierra loves to go super fast and high, while Audrey prefers a slower ride while singing songs!  Below is a cute video showing Audrey singing while swinging...enjoy!
