Fourth of July – Discovery Farm

21 Jul

We haven’t blogged in a while so here is a little catch up!

Our Fourth of July started off with a bang.. Unfortunately that bang was a bird slamming into our kitchen window.  Afterward he just stood there for a while and eventually hopped away.  WE MISS YOU LARRY!

 Me and Larry Bird.

 There’s nothing more american than taco dip right?

Kev and Brayden.

Britt and Brayden.

I told Cory and George to give me their best American pose..


Momma and Zoey.

Lucas loves popsicles.

Then is was 1000 degrees out for a couple of days so we spent alot of time out by the pool.

Britt and Brayden.


Even Tanner couldn’t resist.

Zoey just slept the days away.

Then we went to the On the Farm Discovery Center near Skaneateles and then to the Curbstone Festival.


We saw chickens..

A brand new baby cow.


Olive feeding the sheep.

A crazy bunny!

The Carringtons first farm visit.


Lucas and Olive in the saddle.

As usual Zoey slept through it all.

We stopped at the Annual Curbstone Festival in Skaneateles on our way back through and Olive got a balloon hat.

Unfortunately it didn’t fit.

As soon as we finally found a parking spots and Olive got her balloon hat it instantly started to downpour/hail!  We split up to run back to our cars but The Shaws didn’t make it back to theirs.


Between Easter and Zoey

27 Jun

We recently moved into the house I grew up in at 15 Beardsley St. Its in a quiet neighborhood on the east end of Auburn.  Only a couple blocks between the elementary and middle schools, Hoopes Park and the newest gramma in the Clay family Nicki! [though I think she goes by Nana] I think it’s pretty cool that my grandparents built this house and raised my mom in it, then my sister and I grew up here, followed by my sister who got married and started her family in this house and now Meg and I are fortunate enough to be living here and starting our own memories.  It’s kind of the “Starter House” for new families. However….. we’ve  accumulated so many new things for the baby that the once small pile of baby clothes and toys turned into a larger pile, then into a huge pile, then eventually took over most of the upstairs.  Among other things our camera fell victim to the nonstop flood of babylongings, not to be seen for months.. But we finally found it just in time!!

Here is a few quick pictures to catch you back up..

We went to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo with Julie, Olivia and Lucas.


Moments after we took this picture the bird above Megs head pooed on Julie!

Kissing penguins.



Someone has a case of the Mondays! HA

I compromised with Meg. She can get a kitten if I can get a monkey.

The zoo tired some of us right out!

Then it was Easter! So we colored easter eggs with the very camera shy Tierneys, Shaws and Diegos.


We think Olive figured out that if you broke an egg you got to eat it?



Humpty Dumpty!

Putting some of that art school knowledge to use.

The final product of all our hard work! 

Then after three months we finally found our camera in a bag of baby clothes, just in time for our first summer cook out!

Jules came over with Olive and Lucas, Brittney and Kevin brought their son Brayden and Justin and Monique  [who’s due in September] brought their son Sam.

Justin and Sam playing Kan Jam.

Meg and Kevin showing off the babies.  Lucas and Brayden were born on the same day!

Apparently Sam was pretty hungry!
