The Tate Clan

We had a big crew of family come see us in June!  My Mom and Mike came from Nashville, and my brothers (Jarrett and Jordan) plus Sam and Molly all came from Chicago.  We had a great time, despite a lot of rain!  Lots of good eating, hanging out, and having fun.  Here we are having a picnic one night on Lake Champlain. 
 Will opened some early birthday presents... here he is as a combo Superman/Fireman, obviously.
 Grilling out burgers one night...
We took Will to his first movie- Monsters University.  He loved it!!
Of course, we made a visit to Shelburne Farms!  We can't get enough of it... so beautiful and fun.
 Thanks for coming to visit us!!

Wedding and Orange Beach

Here are some pics from last month when Brett's brother, Drew, got married in Birmingham.  We are so happy to have Elsbeth a part of the fam now!  Here are the girls at the bridesmaids' luncheon.
Here are the kiddos at the rehearsal dinner...
Wedding day!
After the wedding, we went to Orange Beach for a little family vacation... the cousins all had a blast playing together!  It was so sweet.
 Thanks Grammy and Papa for the great trip!

Late Spring

Needless to say, I am quite behind on the blogging, but I'm not giving up!  Here are some pics from the rest of springtime. 

Friday night tradition of walking up to the Mill and getting sandwiches and maple creemees!    
 Playing outside!
 Mother's Day breakfast in bed
 I ran in the Vermont City Marathon relay again this year, and my sweet babies came out to cheer me on in the freezing cold rain!
 Lots of fishing so far this year...
Planting the garden
Taylor performed in a dance recital again this year.  Ballet was to Horsey Horsey, and tap was to Good Ship Lollipop.  She did a much better job this year actually dancing!  What a concept!
Sweet Will ready to give Taylor some flowers.
 Taylor's teacher for two years- Ms. Jen
