The Two Jacobs

This morning at Rittenhouse Square's Goat (in background) we ran into this litte boy named Jacob who just turned two, wearing the exact same shirt and similar blue shorts as our Jacob. They were very sweet together - in the picture, our Jacob is sharing the phone with Jacob number 2

A week in the Midwest

After flying to Detroit on the 9th, we spent a couple of nights Up North. We had a great time catching up with everyone and hanging out on the beach.

A rainbow over Lake Huron. We drove through some rain on our way up I-75, and it rained off and on through the evening. We were still able to grill out for dinner, and then we saw this rainbow that actually was a complete half-circle on the water.

Happy Adoption (Ima) Day, Susy!

As most of you know, the legal adoption process of Jacob by Susy was completed on August 3, 2007. In celebration of that momentous event, we decided that Susy should get her own special "Mother's Day" every year on August 3rd. Yesterday I attempted to make vegan waffles with fresh blueberries (eaten too quickly to get pictures) plus there was a lot of singing and smiling and celebrating Ima. We decided every baby should have his or her own Ima. We love you, Susy!

Camping down the shore

Last weekend the 3 of us made our way to Cape May, NJ, the southern tip of the Jersey shore. The weather was beautiful, the ocean was freezing, and the night was perfect for sleeping in a tent.

This is the famous lighthouse.

Here's Jacob standing on the picnic table on our campsite, and the RV parked at the campsite behind us. Lake Laurie campground is a huge place just outside of downtown Cape May where people park their RV's for what I can only imagine is the whole summer. We looked kind of silly in our little tent, with our little car, and no living room, bbq, or huge containers of junk food. But we made do. We walked to the lake on the campgrounds once, which reminded me of the ponds at Kingswood camp (not good, for those of you unfamiliar). There was a pool on the grounds, too, but we ran out of time to check it out. I never found out what "sparkles" though:
