New England Trip

Last week we took a fabulous trip to New England. We wanted to go in the fall to see the beautiful colors, and it was a great trip.

We flew into Boston then drove to Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. We especially loved our drive through the Green Mountains in Vermont and Acadia National Park in Maine. The girls did great on our trip, and AJ was such a hard worker as he hauled all of our things in and out of hotels each night and sweetly helped with all of the baby tasks. The way he serves us reminds me of the things that first made me fall for him! The girls got to eat their fruits and veggies in several unusual places like looking out on the Atlantic ocean, at a cider mill, and in an airport. They also ate their first ice cream during our tour of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory.

It was so fun to have a week of family time seeing such a neat part of the country. We're thankful for the opportunity to travel so much!

The girls' first flight. On each flight we sat
by very sweet and understanding people.

Jenna's first tooth appeared last week, and Lydia's came in yesterday. Both are on the bottom, but Jenna's is on the left and Lydia's is on the right. They've been a little fussy but not bad at all.

They're both really good at eating from a spoon now, especially when it's a favorite food like bananas, sweet potatoes, or applesauce. That food is making them grow! They feel heavy when I pick them up, and we've finally outgrown most 0-3 month sized clothes.

Recently after changing them into their pajamas, we left them alone for a few minutes. Here's what we found when we returned! They had pulled the blanket on top of their heads and Jenna was peeking out!

Here's a couple recent pictures of our sweet girls who are almost eight months old.
