And now for the Jessica Bear Picture to show how big Ms. Lilly is after a month of life. Unfortunately, we didn’t take a 0 month picture, but we do have two sisters to compare to: Grace & Abby.

Here’s our happy girl!

She's so happy to see Jessica Bear!

Grace and Abby were delighted to go to Pullen Park today with their friend Diana and Alejandro. Sadly, they will be moving away to Oregon soon and so we wanted to fit a play date in before they headed off. (We’re also going to their goodbye party next weekend) Everyone had a great time riding the train and boats and carousel as well as playing on the slides and swings. It was a great last play date!

Riding the train!

A fun time was had by all, even the grown ups! Thankfully not only Diana’s mom, Catalina but also Diana’s grandmother came to help make the wrangling of 5 children (counting Lilly) a bit less hectic.

Lilly was glad to see Cecily, Amanda’s (Erin’s god daughter) sister for a playdate; unfortunately after a while, Lilly got drowsy, so the only pictures I got were while Lilly was sleeping. Oh well, there will be other days….

Corn maze fun

Because handing out with Chris was so much fun, we decided to go ahead and go to a corn maze for extra fun. There was a cow train ride, bounce house, a corn sandbox, rubber duck races, and feeding baby pigmy goats! It was awesome! Here are a few photos from the day… we will definitely do it again next year!

We were so excited to have Uncle Chris come and visit us this weekend…. Lilly loved meeting another family member and Grace and Abby loved swinging on yet another uncle!  (Isn’t that what uncles are for?)  Chris was very good natured about the whole thing, fortunately.

Lilly love snuggling with Uncle Chris!
