Squeezing the last bit out of summer!

As the end of summer approaches, we want to do all our favorite things just one last time: visits to the library, outdoor concerts at Yards Park (including fishing in the Potomac), our beloved ZOO--we brought along Joseph's good friend Drew and met Aunt Rachel for such as fun day. Abigail enjoyed making paper dolls and getting training wheels for her two-wheel bicycle. Even trips to Home Depot can be fun when they offer popcorn and safety goggles.  And, last but not least, we had our visit to the open house for a new school year!!

More Grandma and Grandpa Time!

We were so excited to have Grandma Charlotte and Grandpa Bill come visit us. In addition to showing them our new house, we went to the Udvar Hazy Air and Space museum (including a 3-D omnimax film), celebrated Grandpa Bill's birthday at the Navy Pier Outdoor concert, and then capped off their visit with a screening of "Finding Dory" at the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse! We love having them here!

Missouri Visit Continues

We stayed in Missouri for a longer visit after the wedding. We had blast with cousins, outdoor concerts, trips to the Magic House, visiting Aunt Catherine's house, and even getting a trip to Chuckie Cheese with the bride and groom when they returned from their honeymoon!

Aunt Hannah Gets Married!

We all had so much fun on the special wedding day of Hannah and Alex! Marc flew in to St. Louis to join in--my entire family was there! Abigail and Anna got to be flower girls, the reception was filled with great food and much laugher and "dancing all night," as Abigail described it. Of course, Hannah was an absolutely beautiful bride! What a wonderful day to celebrate the union of these two people whom we love so dearly! Congratulations Hannah & Alex!
