Father’s Day

18 Jun

We spoiled Kerry first thing Sunday morning with sleeping in, gifts and a yummy breakfast! Then, we headed to the Friendship Firehouse for their Father’s Day Open House. The museum is small but had some cool memorbilia and Miss H got a new fire hat and got to ring the bells. It is the oldest firehouse in Alexandria, plus George Washington was a founding member.


We got a family photo too.

Then, since the weather was so beautiful we enjoyed a walk around Old Town.

Mom joined us for a Father’s Day lunch and then we lounged at the pool. The water was a little chilly but it did not deter Miss H from having fun. Blue lips, chattering teeth and all.

Kerry had a great Father’s Day and we made sure he knew how much he means to us đŸ™‚


The Power is Back

28 Aug

I think the power was out for 12 hours. The nice recorded message on Dominion Power said our power would be back between 5-11pm tonight and it was back by 2pm. I love the under promise over deliver. And, to my shock, Comcast was working when the power came back.

Before the power came back, Miss H decided to add Mrs. Potatohead’s earrings to her own outfit.

Between the new ruby slippers, the hair bows and the earrings- she sure is channeling her girly self today.


Post-rain, wind and tropical storm warnings turned into a gorgeous day. We had fun running around the playground.



‘Mom, no picture.’

Hope everyone had a nice post hurri-quake Sunday! And, hope your lights are back on.
