at Olivia's 2-year birthday party!

Olivia is 2 years old! We went to her birthday party at Orly's Treehouse on Long Island where the kids enjoyed playing in the gym, dancing, doing arts and crafts, and eating birthday cake!

Mmmm, birthday cake! I'm not sure but I think Avery enjoyed his cake :)

Lake George Vacation: at Explore!

On Friday morning, we decided to check out a place called Explore! that we'd read about. It was SO fun and we had the entire place all to ourselves except for 1 other very nice family from Montreal (with whom I spoke a little French). The kids were able to run around and play in ball pits, go down slides, do art projects, play with water activities, dress up like pirates and knights, and pretend to be veterinarians taking care of sick stuffed animals. We all had a great time, and we were there for a couple of hours which was perfect for Avery and Olivia to run around and enjoy themselves, and then be able to spend a lot of the afternoon in their strollers without too much complaint.
