Claire was asking my dad about the day she was born. "How did I get my name?" "Well, your mom and dad thought about it for a few months and when they met you, they decided to name you Claire. When the nurse asked what your name was, they told her 'Claire'. She said, 'That is a beautiful name for a beautiful girl.'" "They could have named me Sparkles."

Michigan (Long Post... Lots of Pictures)

We just got back from a week in Michigan where we had a great time.  The weather was good enough to swim every day and it was breezy and cool at night - great sleeping!  Jeff said that he needed to check Claire for gills when we got home - the girl dolphin jumped her way up and down the shore.

Weekend at Grandma's

We went up to visit Grandma, see a parade, and swim in her pool.  Claire had a fun time.


Claire and Jeff like to get caterpillars and watch them turn into butterflies.  This is the second year we did it and Claire enjoyed it more this year than last.
