Fun, Fun, Fun!

Well, we have been super busy the last few weeks.  Richard finished up with classes and his parents came to visit and we had so much fun showing them around New England.  We visited Boston, Providence, the Mystic Seaport, and spent a few days at a resort in the Berkshires.  We loved having them here and I know they loved spending time with Victoria and Reed and I guess they liked seeing Richard and I as well.  Richard's brother Javier was able to come spend a few days with us also, as he was on his way to the Catskill Mountains to work as a rock climbing guide for the summer.  It was so great to see him.  Victoria couldn't get enough of him.  She wanted to be right by his side.

Congratulations Richard!

We spent last weekend in Stamford, Ct.  Richard represented UConn in a case competition and his team won!  Congratulations!  We also had a night out on the town (actually attended a UConn dinner) and left the kids with my cousin Nick and his wonderful wife Amy.  Thank you so much!!

You can see more about the competition here:


Spring is here! Finally, after a long winter spring is here.  We have been hiking and playing outside as much as we can.  On this hike Victoria was hunting for beaver!  We saw a lot of dams but no beaver.  We still had lots of fun!
This picture just shows how busy Reed is.  We literally just brought this chair in and sat it down, turned around for one second, turned around again and Reed was rocking this chair like a maniac!  I have to keep an eye on him every second.
We brought Victoria's old car seat in to move her to a booster and Reed climbed in and made himself right at home.  It was so cute!
This is a picture of Victoria two minutes before the Easter egg hunt.  She was so excited.  This year she finally got it and went crazy running around picking up only yellow and pink eggs!  She wouldn't even touch the blue and green ones.
Reed is just getting so big! He just needs to start walking and I know we won't be able to catch him!  He is such a happy, rough and tumble boy!

Good Ol' Willie

Believe it or not, Rachel and I attended a Willie Nelson concert a couple of weeks ago. A professor was unable to go and gave me the tickets. Needless to say the crowd was very "interesting!" To our surprise, Billy Bob Thorton and his band, The Breakers was the opening act. As I have seen Willie in concert a few times, I never thought that I would have to move to Connecticut for Rachel to attend her first (and probably only) Willie Nelson concert. We had a fun eveing and we enjoyed many of his classic songs.
