Wedding season

We were zocheh to be a part of two beautiful chassunahs this past week, and we had a blast! The kids loved dancing at cousin Shmuly's wedding, and getting to hang out with Bubbie Fogel, Tanta Faith and their gaggle of little cousins. We also had a fun time at the Lancaster children's museum on our way to Lakewood.

Miri: "I want to whisper something in your ear, so give me your head!"

Tatty: "I love hotdogs!"

Miri: "Me too!"

Chaim: "Me three!"

Miri: "No, Chaim, you're one, and I'm three years old."

A Dutch Wonderful Day

The seocnd annual Fogel family trip to Dutch wonderland was a big hit! Uncle Alex and Aunt Debbie joined us for some fun in the sun!

We all enjoyed bumper cars, bulldozers, a train ride, a boat ride, the merry go round, the ferris wheel, a truck ride, ice cream, a diving show, the water park and more.

Miri insisted on riding a pony, and this time she wasn't at all afraid of it.

Mr. Communicator

Life has become somewhat easier now that Chaim can (sometimes) tell us what he wants. Of course, this usually translates into him requesting a cookie at 6 o'clock in the morning!

Heard around our house this week from the mouth of the boychik:

I jump....Ready, go!

Hot, hot broccoli

Miri's milk

MY mommy

Want water

Draw chalk

I stuck

Tatty, big boy

Want car band-aid


More, please

My ball

My choo-choo

Bye-Bye Baby

I love you

Family Galore

We were so lucky to have so many beloved members of our family visit us this past month.

Uncle Alex came and spent the day with the kids. He traipsed with us to Target, Trader Joe's and the library. We also had some homegrown fun...horsie rides and a zuchini rocket.

We aso had an extended visit with Bubbie Fogel, Tanta Faith and cousins Yehoshua and Avigayil. We played at Port Discovery, saw ships in the Harbor, swam in the pool, romped at the playground and even attempted a rather futile photo shoot. All in all, a wonderful adventure!
