The last couple of weeks have felt very long... The kids have been sick and at each other's throats. A little over a week ago, Eliana came down with hand, foot, and mouth disease... then Thomas... then Cecilia. It actually hasn't been too bad. No one got fevers and they didn't seem to complain too much. They just seemed slightly off and I kept them close to home, which means they got a bit stir crazy.

We still decided to head up to Belmont since Matthew had a long weekend (although we didn't end up leaving until Sunday since he had 2 weddings...). It's always nice to have some time to play outside, though--especially with the beautiful weather we've been having. I love fall!

On Monday morning, I had some writing to finish, so Matthew took the kids out while he went around taking photos for a couple hours. Then, on Tuesday, we took the kids out for a hike down to the train tracks. You can't see Eliana because she's in the pack on Matthew's back. Later in the afternoon, we set off for Meredith to meet with Carly, an old family friend who is an aspiring photographer. Here's her blog; she's very good. While she and Matthew were talking shop, she took some photos of our family. We're excited to see those when she gets a chance to process them. Then, we headed off for pizza :)
