It’s difficult putting words on this blog that match the emotions felt in the delivery room. And I am just the bystander! I loved watching Desiree and Adam walk through this delivery together–they laughed, cried, experienced frustration and worked so well together. Congratulations on the arrival of your incredibly handsome and loved little boy. He is precious and seems to be the perfect addition for your family of boys!

Claire Madelyn

I can’t think of many things as inspiring as watching a baby be born. Add to that, a mom who is so full of strength, leaning on her husband each contraction–I’m literally in tears. These two worked incredibly well together. She rested so well in between her contractions and breathed like a steady machine while she rode each wave. Brian was a constant, calming coach. I truly was in tears as they interacted and welcomed their baby girl. It was breathtaking.

Summer 2016:: Blueberry Picking

We spent some family time this morning at Hansen’s Blueberry farm in Corning. It was a perfect day! There was a cool breeze and only a few other pickers there. The kids did really well and Brody was all about finding the fattest blueberries to add to our bucket. Make it a game and the enthusiasm really comes out in that boy!

2016-05-25_00012016-05-25_00022016-05-25_00032016-05-25_0004I now realize that Brinley and I are matching. Ha! 2016-05-25_0005Hands in the buckets…2016-05-25_0006Brinley was much more interested in eating all of the blueberries. She eventually sat down and just had a little picnic by herself. 2016-05-25_00072016-05-25_0008We walked away with a full bucket for $15 and are planning on freezing lots to last us into summer. Brody really is at a such a fun age for these types of activities. He was loudly telling us things like “MOM, COME LOOK AT THIS BIG, FATTY ONE!” and “Oh, nice one Mom. That’s a good find!” Brinley is still a bit of a handful but she had fun…I think.:)Some older women commented on how nice it was to listen to our kids while they picked their blueberries. Their kind words will carry me through the tantrums of today.:)

Hansen’s Blueberry Farm still has LOTS of blueberries so make your way out there. He told me this morning that he had about 5,000 gallons left. They open at 7am and it’s a 35 minute drive from us and a great family adventure.:)(530) 824-2331
