Happy Father’s Day and Happy Anniversary

21 Jun

I taught Miss H how to say, ‘Happy Father’s Day’ but then she would not perform on command. It went kind of like this:

“Miss H, do you have something to tell Daddy?”

“Yes. Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!

“What about happy…..”

“No. Hi Daddy!”

“Remember, happy father’s…”

“No mommy. Hi happy daddy!”

So, it was sort of close.


Kerry enjoyed watching the U.S. Open and then we had a nice dinner with friends. Our dads were happy with their gifts. Kerry’s dad was going to enjoy his Chili’s giftcard while Dad had already spent some of his Starbucks gift card. Since DadĀ and Kathy areĀ spending the summer in Vermont, he gets to actually visit a Starbucks instead of having it mailed to him.

The pool is still the best place to be.

The second best place to be is sitting on the kitchen counter.

The counter is a good place to ‘help cook,’ eat lunch or just hang out.

Thank you to everyone who wished us Happy Anniversary today! It was nice to hear from friends and family who have such fond memories of our destination wedding. It has been a wonderful three years and we are looking forward to many more to come. We need to make another trip to Sanibel soon!

Our anniversary included a trip to the doctor’s office because Miss H was acting a little off. Once we got to the doctor, she was acting totally normal but she did have an ear infection. The office staff loved how she had to give everyone a ‘high five!’ before we could leave.

Then I ran off to my crocheting class (gift from Leigh for my birthday) and tried to learn how to make a blanket. I failed miserably (so did everyone else) but have great hope that between me, Mom and Leigh that we will be able to figure out this pattern and actually make a blanket. If not, Leigh promises she can teach me how to make granny squares. I have no photos of this endeavor because I literally started over four times and in the end just pulled everything out to start over again.

More to come on my progress.

Father's Day and Anniversary, Part Deux

21 Jun


We decided to have a low-key Sunday to celebrate both things today so we ended up in Old Town Alexandria and went to the Waterfront Festival. The clouds ended up rolling out and it turned into a beautiful day! The only disappointment of the day was the Waterfront Festival. Neither one of us could figure out what all the hype was about. There were people selling random things, some rides for kids and a few guys trying to convince us to install new windows in our house. We walked around a little while and the coolest part was the tall ship from Philadelphia. The Gazela was a fishing ship for many years but now travels up and down the eastern seaboard with an all-volunteer crew. The crew was super nice and we got to see them rigging up the sails. We both think it would be pretty cool to sail on one for a few days.


Since we were in Old Town and did not want to eat at the festival- we went to one of our favorite restaurants and grabbed a late lunch. So, it was a great Father’s Day First Anniversary First Day of Summer kind of Sunday!


Hadley is continuing her non-smiling for the camera trend from yesterday. So serious.


Tomorrow it is back to work. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
