we've finally recovered enough from our trip to ogunquit to post some pics. the town is great and we enjoyed it, but our little friends are still a bit tricky to travel with. they did great sleeping in the same room, though!

a visit from auntie

this year, mom headed to brimfield with her pal heather (sorry, penny and zack!). we were all so lucky to have lots of quality time with her - we took a trip to the beach, to the farm, to "tarjay", and even went out to dinner. thanks for coming up to visit, auntie heather!

also: penny's dress used to be laura's!

corn on the cob

the little keenans had their first experience eating corn right off the cob -- and i can't get enough of the funny faces they make...
