The weather here lately has been beautiful, and we have definitely been taking advantage of it! Today, Meg and Dave's friend, Derek, came over to help Dave cut down some trees and branches in the back yard. He has been running his own Daddy Day Care this summer, so he brought his three kids, Celia, Evelyn, and James. Mairead loved having the company, and she especially loved it when Celia and Evelyn shared their McDonald's french fries with her.
Yesterday, we were up in Lowell to visit Maghan's Nana who turned 80 this past week. Happy Birthday, Nana! Of course, that meant that Mairead had to get in some swimming. The water was not very warm at all, but she didn't mind a bit!
She really seems to get the hang of it-- she waves her arms around and kicks her legs. She still keeps her mouth open, though, so she'll have to cut that out!
Danny and Katie (and Danny and Chrissy and Jackie and Jimmy) were nice enough to give us some of the toys they had outgrown, so Mairead got to drive her first car.
And here she is, drinking and driving. Don't worry, it's only juice!
Thanks for the sweet ride!
