Where Have We Been?

I can't keep up with this to save my life.  Between the Handel Society's last concert (err, that was in May) and then Girls Camp (that was a week ago), just about every spare second went to preparation for something more than documenting the insanity of it all.  So since I finally got these pictures put on a CD, and as of tonight actually got them onto the computer.  Anyway, I'll try to catch up on whatever I can remember.  
 Above is a picture of Cora and myself with Sabaday Falls behind us.  It's a beautiful waterfall in the White Mountains.  Jeremy had a week's vacation the first week of June, and we just used it to run here, there, and everywhere.  It was a nice break.
 I thought this would be another picture from the falls, but instead it's Sydney giving Pele loves.
 So in the merry month of May a very good friend of mine got married and asked our girls to be her flower girls.  It was one of the funnest (is that even a word?) days I've had with our girls.  The wedding was in Ipswich, Mass, Jeremy was on call, so I spent the day having an adventure with the girls.
 I tried so hard to get a picture of all three of them coming down the isle, but only Katie got it, the twins ran around to try to find me.
 Here's Cora on the left and Syd on the right.  They look so sweet in their dresses.
 There's Rachel and Mark.  I love when you have those friends that just understand you instantly.  She is one of those.

 I took them to the beach before we got to that insane castle/mansion.  Katie was excited!

 On our way down we happened to find a snapping turtle on the side of the road.  I couldn't believe how big he was, we had to stop so I could show the girls.
 These are some of our favorite people and occasional slave laborers, the Deweys.  Our girls love them, and they called to ask if we wanted to hike Mt. Cardigan with them.  Everyone took turns hauling different kids, and we made it up the beautiful peak, despite the wind that nearly blew Cora off her daddy's shoulders.
 Lunch time.
 There's Syd playing possum on her daddy's shoulders.
 We made it to the top.  I wish they could move in with us!  It makes life so much more fun to have additional hands with these rascals!
 Can you believe the view?
 The beginning of our hike.
This is actually part of the Sabaday Falls hike.  They wanted to "be united," so they all held hands on the way  down the hill.

There's a heck of a lot more to talk about and more pictures, but I'm not a huge friend of technology, it's late, I don't want to stay up longer to stare at a screen, so hopefully I'll get more in before another however many months go by.
