A Brief, Photographic Review

A short, visual guide to what we've been doing lately.

Anna's got the A's down. Now if she can get the N's, she'll be just fine. The last name will come later.

The Humphreys came through for a night on their way further north. It was so fun to catch up with them. Anna had her first sleepover with the girls in her room and the next day we all went to the zoo.

Joshua celebrated 3 months of life last Thursday with plenty of grins, giggles and coos. I do believe he's the cutest little boy I've ever seen.

Grammie came over the weekend and that is always a special time! She sent us out on Friday night so we could celebrate our anniversary. We took in the Bolshoi ballet at the Kennedy Center. What a treat!

After Anna presented Daddy with his specially-chosen gift (sidewalk chalk), we enjoyed Father's Day brunch yesterday at the beautiful O club at Belvoir. Sweet memories.

Whoa, Baby!

It's the year of babies!! We know so many folks who've had or are expecting babies. I guess it's that time of our life. We've even had one ourselves recently! This past weekend we gathered in VA Beach with my MWC girls to celebrate some more babies. MWC should offer a degree in babies because each girl from our gang fills her days with something related to babies and children.

Here we are, minus our favorite pediatrician, who was busy taking care of...babies. In the year since our last gathering we've added 3 babies, and 2 more are due very soon! We'll soon be outnumbered by our children.

Look at that pile of blessings!

Anna's Aspirations

She's always thinking about what she'll be when she grows up. It seems that every time we go on a special outing, she wants to do something relating to that. For example, after a day at the National Zoo a few weeks ago, Anna decided she wants to teach about animals some day. Included in the list are also: be a doctor like Amy Brown, play football, fly airplanes (and make sure everyone wears their seatbelt), and yesterday at lunch the UPS truck passed down our street. She said:

"I want to drive the big brown truck when I grow up and be the mail man. Except my big brown truck will be PINK!"

Uncle Will, if you see a pink, big brown truck, will you save it for Anna? Thanks!

The 5.2 Project

A long time ago, in a place far, far away, a boy offered Jesus 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish. Jesus took this small quantity and fed a multitude.
