Birthday Season

September 18, 2015 in Beach, Birthdays, Dates, Friends, Newport, Troy - No Comments

This little corner of the web has been quiet for a few weeks. Between school starting, spending a lot of time at the hospital for asthma visits, two rounds of company, an end-of-summer trip and celebrating half of our family’s birthdays, down time has been non-existent. I do love this…

Troy had the last two weeks off work for paternity leave. It was, in a word, divine. Maybe it wasn’t quite as heavenly as when we shipped the older two boys off to their grandparents’ house for ten days when newborn baby #3 entered our world. But since school made…
