Family BBQ '11

On Friday Mary and I hosted our second annual end of summer barbecue. It worked out well again this year that Aunt Kathy Murphy was able to make it in again from NC, but we missed a few people who had already made plans for the day. We were able to celebrate Aunt Kathy and Bryan's birthdays during the party. The trio loved this because "Happy Birthday" is one of their favorite songs to sing. They also love to have all the visitors to come over and play with them. Yesterday Seamus got his first ever bee sting. We were worried at fist because we didn't know if he was allergic, but he wasn't. He did have to tell our neighbor on the way to the park this morning. Mary and I are both back to work as of the end of the month, and the kids are joining us for back to school this year. Today we signed the kids up for Preschool for this fall and winter on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They are excited about it and are already asking us to go to the store for their back packs and lunchboxes. Mary and I are not so sure if we are ready for them to be going to school already...
