One of our neighbors, The Litchfeild's had the most wonderful back to school party. It was to get all the kids excited about going back to school, complete with a pinata stuffed with school supplies. Piper and Polly thought it was the most wonderful party and had so much fun. Piper hung out with the big girls chasing chickens and bobbing for apples. Polly found her fun inside playing with all the toys and loved pin the tail on the colt. Hap was happy just being carried around and watching all the fun in our arms.
Nichole and Dave, invited Dara and I, to go to The Pageant of the Masters with them. Seriously, I was blown away, it far exceeded my expectations and everything I have heard about it.
What is the Pageant of the Masters you may ask?
Ninety minutes of "living pictures" - incredibly faithful art re-creations of classical and contemporary works with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces. An outdoor amphitheater, professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, sophisticated lighting, expert staff, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers have won recognition for the Pageant as the best presentation of its kind.
I can't wait to go again next year!

Harrison debuted his brand new overalls yesterday. Actually, they aren't exactly brand new. These were worn first by his Australian cousins...Andrew, Ben & Max. He has an entire wardrobe of his cousin's hand-me-downs that he'll be showcasing in photos to come. At the rate his long legs are getting longer by the day, we'll have to be quick otherwise he'll outgrow them before he gets a chance to wear them. His days now are spent eating, crawling, standing up, and playing with his adoring sisters.

Here is little Hap and Karlie, Karlie lives across from us on Dapplegray. We have assured Jen and Chris that we will have a state of the art security system, for when they are teenagers:-) While Hap flirted with Karlie, his sisters we off playing nursery with Karlie's big sisters, Jacquelyn, Jenna and Brooke.
