Summer is here…

1 Jun

The heat arrived this week but I am not going to complain. Miss H and Miss S enjoyed the sprinkler this morning. I am not sure who enjoyed it more.


We had friends over too and they enjoyed the sprinkler too. I think the yard appreciated all the water too.

Then, after those friends left- we went to see another friend. We had a great lunch and enjoyed the company.


Plus, the girls got to paint outside.


There were lots of tears when it was time to go home. Even talk of going to the pool did not stop the waterworks.

But, we did manage to leave their house and did go to the pool.


It is great having a pool right in the neighborhood.

I think we are going to be spending lots of time there this summer!


Memorial Day Weekend 2013

27 May


We had a great long weekend! The weather was a little chillier and windier than expected but it was not raining so we enjoyed lots of time outside. We started Saturday off by heading to dog training. Miss H is getting a lot bigger and she is starting to grow into her ears.


After class, we decided to spend the afternoon at the Delaplane Strawberry FestivalΒ at Sky Meadows State Park. It was super windy at times but we all had a great time (even Miss S was allowed in the festival).


Miss H and I took the hayride through the park and learned a little history about the area. The park ranger asked if anyone knew who the first president was (this had been his land) and Miss H was the first to raise her hand. I was impressed when she named him without any coaching πŸ™‚


They had a small petting zoo, great food, lots of games and activities and these cool hay bale tunnels.


Plus, the views were really nice.


On Sunday, Miss H and I headed to Annapolis to see Mom. Mom spoiled Miss H with a load of new clothes and we got to check out the new fish tanks at the mall.


Pizza and fish tanks was a perfect lunch.


Also, Mom painted this great picture of Miss H from when we were at the beach last summer. I need to get it framed so we can hang it up.


We joined our community pool and they had a cookout on Sunday evening for everyone. It was nice to meet some more of our neighbors! Miss H really wanted to get in the pool but the water was freezing. It did not stop some of the kids from diving right in. Of course, they were trying to convince their parents they were not cold as their lips turned blue and their teeth chattered πŸ™‚

Today, we enjoyed the afternoon cooking out and hanging out with friends. The kids played in the sand box, painted, ran around and generally wore themselves out. The rest of us are tired too.

Hope you had a great weekend! A special thanks to all who have served!
