Back tracking... May 21, 2010

So much happened in May and I just haven't had a chance to keep up with any of it. So the next few of my blog posts will be my effort to remember and record our last few weeks in Connecticut. As I mentioned (I think, I mentioned anyways) my sister, brother-in-law and niece came to visit for my graduation. Although it was a crazy time in general, I did want to try and show them at least a little bit of the east coast since it was the first trip for all of them. So our go to attraction is to take our visitors to lighthouse point. A little beach area of long island sound, with a lighthouse and park.

First task was getting a family shot in front of the lighthouse. This is when they weren't quite ready for the camera. So it's more candid.

Second task was a family shot with Long Island Sound in the background. My niece Hannah was a little bit tired at this moment.

  Then we decided to play too. This is actually a pretty awkward shot of me and Emerson, but Marcus  looks pretty good though.

And then my favorite discovery was just how much of a water baby Emerson is. I took her to dip her toes in the water assuming she would freak out because it was cold and the dirt. But she was so excited. She kept laughing and kicking and digging her feet deeper into the sand. (Don't mind my hunchback Emerson is short and my back was hurting and I couldn't bend over all the way). 

My niece Hannah hated it. Apparently it was a little too cold for her.

But not Emerson and because she was so excited about just dipping her feet in, we promptly took the babies swimming the next day. Which was equally adorable and hilarious. (More to come about their first swimming adventure soon).

Yay! for water! You guys got some great pictures! It looks like you managed to sneak in some fun time with your sister. Emerson is too cute with that big smile in the water :-)
