Rock Creek Park

June 12, 2013

We had the annual church picnic this weekend.  Rock Creek Park is always a good time, and this is about the only weekend we make it out there each year.  Seriously, it is an oasis in the city and I always forget about it!

Sugar is in the Air

…because that’s what a preschooler’s Valentine’s party is really all about, right?

Even the big kids participated:

There were valentines to display:

And friends to make eyes at:

Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day!

Adding mine to the multitude of musings on Father’s Day, I will simply show you this.

The day began with art to be handed to Dear Pop whilst still sopping wet:

The midday held a scrumptious feast shared with housemates:

And the evening ended with great gratitude for life and limb spared, and the outpouring of kindness and sincere help of friends:

We love you, Aaron/Daddy!

 

Farewell Frolics

June 12, 2012

So, some dear friends climbed on a plane today to embark on their life’s next adventure: park rangering in Kotzebue, Alaska.  Yeah, that’s far.

A small group of us went to my parents’ weekend double-wide…err…house to enjoy grilled foods and lots of tubing down the Potomac River.

The burgers were well worth the excitement.

Sonny never wants to go in a tube or raft or kayak ever again.

We wanted to safeguard all our valuables before we went down the river.  Good thing each piece was so unique.

Look at these lovely ladies:

And, of course, a trip to the country wouldn’t be complete without some nature shots:

Be safe, friends!

Outside. With Friends.

That pretty much sums up our life right now!
