We went to Pennsylvania to see Grandpa Randy and Nana for Easter. Although we were still sick (the only time Lila shares is when she has a cold... badum-cha!) We had a great time.

Early morning hike with mom and dad.

When the Cats Away...

Liam gets to play. (or should I say, When Lila has strep throat, I get some one-on-one time with mumsy).

I am not one to revel in another's downfall, but I'll take the individualized attention when I can get it. The weather was great today in Albany (trust me, there is only a handful of times when I can say that), so mom and I went for a walk to the playground, the fish store and the ice cream shop. We did bring Lila home some lemon sorbet, though. See, not totally selfish.

Flying a plane like Grandpa Randy


Crash and Burn...(does anyone else find it disturbing that she took a picture of this?)

Remember us?

All you die hard Gorilla vs. Rex fans out there, who periodically check out sight,and then shake your fists in dismay when you see it has not been updated in 6 months... REJOICE! We are back with a renewed sense of hope and commitment of updating this page more regularly... to coin one of the more popular phrases of the last few months "Yes We Can".

We have been extremely busy since we last updated. GorilLiam has learned how to talk... or should I say talk back. The increase in his verbal skills seem directly related to him turning 2 in January. Ever since then, the dialogue around the household has been a lot more colorful. I (Rex) have almost completed an entire pre-school year and must admit that I have gotten quite good at it. I have a major in 'Dressin'-Up' and a minor in 'Snacking'.

Liam's Doppleganger

For those of you who don't know, the whole family went to Disneyworld in February. It was so magical. (That's Disney-speak for 'fun') I am convinced that we are going back very soon, or at least that's what I think my mother means when she says 'when pigs fly.' I got to meet every princess on my list (some of them more than once) and even got to ride the teacups and Dumbo. (I also was forced onto 'Snow White's Scary Adventure' by my parents who, despite my evident, and vocal trepidation, felt it was their right to ride on an 'adult ride'. Needless to say, I am still scarred.)

We're smiling because we only had to wait 10 minutes to see this rodent.

Well hello Prince Charming.

Where the Wild Things Are

Lila: Liam, I'm bored.
Liam: Me too. What can we do?
Lila: Let's freak mom out.
Liam: That sounds like a fine plan, but how?
Lila: Let's dig out some old Halloween costumes and go about our day as usual.
Liam: Capital idea, my girl, simply capital!

Pumpkin Patch

This past weekend we embarked on the perfect fall journey. We went to Ellm's Farm, which had a pumpkin patch, a 'jumping pillow', and a little something called the "Moo Moo, Choo-Choo". Of course we had donuts and cider to wrap things up.

Bubbles Bubbles Everywhere

Here we are hanging out in Nanima's Jacuzzi.... we went a little overboard with the bubbles.

(Check out my spooky spider tattoo.)

Why do I let my sister do this to me?
