Muddy in May

What better for boys to do on a hot summer day than go swimming? Only one thing: play in mud! Our neighbors ran their sprinklers this evening and some of the water came into our yard by the edge of the fence. Since that part of the yard had little grass, it basically created a strip of mud.

Also included in the video below, is an example of how Aiden harasses his brothers. He calls Evan “boo-boo bear” and Ethan is “tiny dreams.” Pics and video below.

Rochester 2012

The boys have been anticipating this trip for several weeks! Papa, Grandma, Amisha and, of course, Oak were all going to be there as well as Manish’s cousin, Rashmi with her husband (Aashish) and their children (Ananjay and Ananya).

Hannah took Aiden to Children’s Hospital Boston for some checkups after which she drove to Rochester while Manish flew there with the twins (all by himself!).

Papa and Grandma had a little (not so little) party to celebrate 4 things:
1. The triplets (a lot of their friends had not met them)
2. Oak’s graduation and the start of his medical practice in Austin,TX
3. Oak’s engagement to Miss O
4. Amisha’s graduation and start of Residency in Seattle, WA

Below is a short slideshow of trip with some pictures posted (some are repeats). It was a fun, but exhausting trip!
