August is a banner month for birthdays in our life: 10 of our nearest and dearest friends and family members have August birthdays. Last week we celebrated 3 of them with the O'Reillys. Meredith's birthday is next week and both Killian (her oldest) and Rosalyn (her newest) share the 15th. Killian insists genuinely that he could never get a better birthday present than he did last year: his baby sister.
We spent a day swimming in Little Narrows Pond and sharing a birthday feast!
Killian, our godson, is 8!
One year ago, I was honored to watch Rosalyn enter this world. It still gives me chills to think of it.

Meredith's family has a tradition of giving one-year-olds their own cake to go after.
It started like this:
And turned into this:
And then this:
I don't know who had more fun. Both Beckett and Killian kept shouting variations of:
THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!
Before we left, Killian challenged Sam to a race.
Team A: Jason, Marie (Meredith's great friend from Ireland), and the kids
vs. Team B
Here is Sam coming back swimming butterfly (to show off) and beat them handily.
Thanks for a delicious day.
