Whew - what a whirlwind of a week. We just got home last night after a long road trip to New York and Canada. While all my photos upload from that trip, I thought I'd catch up on photos and an update about life BEFORE we left for vacation.
Day #12 of summer - Our anniversary! Happy 6th anniversary to Nick and I. I know the saying "time flies" is such a cliché, but it really does go by in a flash.
Our amazing neighbors text us in the morning and told us that we should go out to dinner and to send Georgia over to their house for a playdate. Ummm... yes!! So Nick and I headed off to a special fondue dinner while Georgia played the evening away down the street with her buddies. Thanks neighbors!
Day #13 of summer - Happy birthday Matthew!!! We love you!
Since it was a Monday and Georgia was home from school on Mondays, we headed out with friends/neighbors to explore Cabin John Regional Park. For years and years, we've heard about the miniature train that runs in the park and we knew that Georgia would love it, but we've never gotten around to going there. Problem solved! We got to ride the train a few different times and got to run around and explore the amazing playground in the park We'll definitely be back to visit again!
Day #14 of summer - Deck farming is a success and harvesting has begun.
Day #15 of summer - Every now and again, there are parenting moments that just blow you away. On this particular morning, I was in the kitchen and Georgia was playing quietly in the living room. I heard her yell,"Is there an A in Mom?" I yelled back and it went quiet again. Then Georgia walked in with a huge grin on her face to show me what she had been working on...
WOW! She has spelled all of these words before and loves to practice writing them, but this was the first time that she typed them all out. She was so proud of herself and we were so proud of her!
Since it was a Wednesday, we were home for the day, so we decided to hit up the Rio area with friends for their Little Tots weekly event, which happened to be an animal show. It was a definite hit with the teaching crowd because we saw lots of familiar faces and friends at the show. Since it was a gorgeous morning, we decided to hit up some of the other area activities, including the carousel, playground and train.
That kid LOVES trains!!!
Knowing that we were leaving town the next morning, Georgia and I hit the nail salon for a little last minute pampering. While I got a pedicure, Georgia got her toes and nails painted. She picked out a combo of pink/purple - not exactly 4th of July colors, but they made her happy!
