updates from the bradfields

29 May 07 Spring Flings

It’s been a great spring for the Bradfields.

Marley, Karyn and Nicole have settled into a fun routine that includes visiting the playground every day after school. Marley’s a super swinger and loves the sprinkler feature on hot days. Nicole is close to having enough trunk strength to sit in the swing. Her big sister can’t wait to show her  how it’s done.

In May, we all visited beautiful California for a week. Dave was there on business, so the three girls decided to tag along. We had a great time with a lot of firsts for Marley and Nicole, including carousel rides, horse and carriage rides and bowling. During our two days in Sacramento, Marley spent a lot of time in the hotel pool, even swimming on her own for a few feet (with water wings). There were numerous other highlights for us all, including an in-room massage for Karyn on Mother’s Day. The timing of our trip couldn’t have been better, as Dave’s parents (Nana and Bobo) were in San Francisco for a wedding. The two days we spent with them were extra special!

We just celebrated Memorial Day weekend – it’s really great to have a long weekend to spend together. Yesterday, we visited the Dumbo area of Brooklyn with Asher, a school friend of Marley’s, and his parents, who also all just moved here last year. We had a great lunch, played in a fun, ship-themed playground and enjoyed gorgeous views of Manhattan. There are so many different pockets to New York, it’s fun to discover new ones. The summer is sure to be one big adventure.
