Happy Spring!

So, it's been a while but we have had a lot going on between our jobs, house for sale, finishing school, and now the oil spill. We are having a great spring anyway and hope that you are as well.

This past weekend was fantastic with lots of family around for Willie's graduation and Delaney's baptism. All the aunts and uncles, cousins, grandparents, and great-grandparents including Papa Dale and Naney and Papa B came to Gloucester to see us! We couldn't have had a nicer time with everyone.

Willie is in Louisiana right now helping out with the spill, don't feel too bad for him - he's eating great food and getting to go to Cafe DuMonde! I'm hoping that he brings us back something yummy.

An update on Delaney - she is 9 months old now and at her last check-up was 21 lbs and 30.5 inches long. She is growing like crazy and doesn't seem to be slowing down yet. She loves eating finger foods and cruising around the room (walking with holding on), and she just popped her 3rd tooth. She's smiling and waving hello at everyone, especially Ollie - and even started playing tug of war with him and his toys.

We are having tons of fun and can't wait to get her swimming and camping.

Here are some photos from last weekend...

After lots of hard work Willie received his Ph. D in Marine Affairs from the University of Rhode Island.

Cousin Kathleen came to URI for the event too, then we went home to do some playing. The next day Delaney got baptized at the Rockport Congregational Church.

She wore the christening gown that Kelly and Auntie Katie wore when they were babies.

After, we had a party to celebrate it all!
