Can you tell they are brothers?

I was looking at old posts from Alden's Story, and I came across this picture from August 2007, when Alden was adjusted to about 2 months old...


Remind you of somebody...?

Trip to Chicago (0ur mini-summer-vacay)

Last weekend, we decided to make the most of the end of summer by visiting Chicago. We haven't been able to really leave Madison for months and months, so this counts as our summer vacation! Our condo is in the background of one of our many walks. My Dad lives in Milwaukee and works in Chicago, so we have access to the condo at any time! I know, we are VERY lucky...


Alden is loving a rock he found during one of our many walks through the city...


...and enjoyed snuggling with Daddy on our walk through a nearby park.


Alden playing in the same park...


We highly recommend the Shed's show, Fantasea for anyone with a preschooler!


Alden clapped his hands together like the seals...


The Beluga Whales were a big hit...


A hawk as a highlight??? These Wisconsinites were not very impressed...


The main attraction! When the show was over, Alden started to cry, "I miss the dolphins! I want to see them AGAIN!!!"

Last Week of Summer

Alex is excited to get into the great outdoors - we are want to soak up all of the Summer we have left!


Properly modeling his Itty-Bitty Boo cardigan...


Admiring our front yard garden before our walk...hubby worked hard on this!


Autumn is peeking around the corner...

Capture the Moment



This is what I am trying to do during my maternity leave: soak it in and be fully present. Here is Alex right now:

Labor Day

Sunrise at the cabin up north over Labor Day weekend...


Alden (wearing his Wonderful Wallaby) had fun playing "Captain" with Greg...


Alex's (wearing the Itty-Bitty Boo cardigan) first boat rise! He loved (most) of it, as was evidenced by his first honest-to-goodness smile ever (at 5 weeks and 4 days old for future reference!).


Sunrise and the island...


Alex spent a lot of time snuggling with Papa Denny...


Alden and his cousin playing near the lake...


Alden is practicing his kayaking skills...


...on land!
