We went south to VA hoping to scope out some cherry blossoms and enjoy a taste of warm weather. Unfortunately it was windy and cold, but we still kept busy--our schedule consisted of reading the morning paper while noshing on homemade breakfast sammies, shopping--both thrift and otherwise, going out to eat (at a funky pizza joint and an authentic tapas place), a steak dinner in, and of course lots of playing/watching/giggling with babies.

|So many hugs and kisses!|

|Ah, here are the grown-ups! (left: Andrew, Jayme & baby Lyla right: Quentin, Amanda & baby Aurora (in a vintage dress--now for sale in the shop!)|
|I know I'm a bit biased, but we have THE sweetest little girls.|
It was so awesome to see these little ones take more notice of one another. Lyla could not keep her eyes off of her platinum-headed cousin! And Aurora was so sweet, patting Lyla's head, pointing to her nose (and exclaiming "nose!") and doing her best at pronouncing "Lyla!" (those double L's are tough!) or sometimes calling her "mama!"
Life is certainly a lot different with babies in tow. A little more hectic. A lot more joyful.
