To get ready for the kids’ great grandmas’ visit, Sophie helped me make …
an apple pie.
And by “help” I mean she ate the apples and learned that you shouldn’t take a bit of an apple slice and then put the rest of the slice back in the unbaked pie crust.

My aunt Ann holding Owen and talking to her son, Ben, who was on his way to teach in Belize (check out his blog here!)
four generations (it was difficult to get a good picture)
three kids, in the beautiful outfits their Great Aunt Susan made for them—she sells her handmade clothes on Etsy (check out the site, here!)
After everyone left and shortly before Andy came home I had a few (oh so brief) minutes in which all three children were napping at once—a most perfect day.
