August Adventures!

Dave took all three kids to New Jersey to see Aunt Jen and Uncle Kai's new house, go out on their boat, and see lots of family:

Aunt Ronni, Sara and Dana came to visit us from Gloucester (originally California!), and the kids put them to work with a dance party and some light reading:

We celebrated Lucy and Sam's third birthday at their awesome backyard carnival party:

We had some playground dates with friends Maisie...

...and Abby and Natalie:

For our grand finale, we went on a whale watch in Gloucester that claimed to last 3.5-4 hours. (Maisie and her family joined us.) Unfortunately, our trip was the record-setter of the season and lasted SIX HOURS, so we were on the water until 7:30 at night with no cash left to purchase "food" on board. Thank goodness for good-natured kids is all I have to say about that!

And we did get to see TWO different whale species, which is highly unusual! We saw a humpback and a finback whale (which we kept calling a "Finn-back Will" to make the boys laugh), and watching them both blow and breech so close to the boat was very exciting.
