Enjoying the Patio


The long-awaited patio and fireplace are a huge hit. We are out here all the time and over Labor Day weekend enjoyed several fires because it was cool.

Naughty Sylvia & Silly Daddy




Sylvia didn't want to take a nap. She screamed and cried. This is how we found her. I have no idea how she reached her curtains or why she wanted to put them over her face (thank goodness she didn't strangle herself!). Daddy decided to climb in with her.

Grandpa and Grandma Debi Visit




Grandpa and Grandma Debi flew in from Fort Wayne, Indiana on Thursday night (midnight) and stayed through Monday afternoon. Friday we went to Old Town to feed the ducks, walk around and have lunch. Friday afternoon we hit a nearby water park, which was so fun I'd wished we'd spent all summer there. Saturday morning we went to the zoo and admired a baby gorilla and six lion cubs playing, then went out for Thai on our way home. Sunday we went to our neighbhorhood pool and grilled out there. Monday we went to the National Harbor to play and have lunch. In the evenings we fired up the fireplace, had smores, drank lots of wine. Good times. Plus, many of David's honey-do's were checked off the list with Grandpa's help. These are tiny pictures Debi sent from her iPhone.

Play Date With Wyatt








Today the girls met up with Finn and Wyatt to play. Wyatt had to take a break and Evelyn (our cuddle bug) snuggled up next to him on the ground, then Sylvia joined. How stinking cute are these pictures!?

Happy Birthday Mommy

The girls and Daddy gave Mommy a wonderful birthday celebration. I came home to flowers, balloons, carrot cake, and sushi. Yum! We enjoyed dinner on the new patio (tofu stir fry for the girls and sushi for Mommy and Daddy...they used the chopsticks, but spit out hte sushi)The girls both had to stick their fingers in my cake when I first saw it (we hadn't had dinner yet) and Sylvia pretty much threw it up. The rest of the night "Mine eat ice cream, no like cake." I'm certain she will come around to cake eating. Evelyn, on the other hand, Evelyn enjoyed two small servings of each. They were so tweaked out from sugar, I'm surprised they were able to go to sleep. 37 isn't so bad when you have a loving husband and two amazing little girls, along with a wonderful family and friends. Thanks to everyone who made my day special!

Dog Sitting Lucy











We watched our friend's dog, Lucy, this weekend. She stuck to Mommy's side every moment. While the girls were incredibly sweet with her, I think it was a lot of stimulation for her. It was fun and we all enjoyed her. She's such a good doggie!
