We are packing up & taking off for 6 days of lobster and beaches and low(er) humidity, but before we strap everyone in the car & go, here are some catch-up pictures to tide everyone (Grammy) over in our absence.
Oh, but Harper is honing her little sister skills
Matching firefighter jams! [Luke picked them out]

Do you think Harper was tired & ready to go home?
Luke and his friend Genna (of the hand-me-down Crocs above) enjoy hippie ice pops at the Ramsey, NJ farmer's market. They really were having fun, despite their faces here
What did Luke & Harper think was the MOST FUN EVER? Why, sitting in the crib eating apples, of course. Lukey loves Harper.
Harper loves Lukey.
Luke is a ham
Luke is done with the paparazzi
"Look, Harper," said Luke, in his most learned tone, "this is where Fig Newtons come from."

Harper enjoyed the cannolis, thank you very much
The other night, after a good 15 minutes of clinking, clanking, and general rustling in the kids' room after lights out, Luke appeared at the top of the stairs. "I accidentally thought we were going on vacation tomorrow so I packed my little suitcase with some things and 100 coins." We were dying to find out what that meant, but had to wait for the next morning. Sure enough...
Luke put this ensemble together for a pre-vacation book retrieval trip to the library. Very early-to-mid 90s grunge
