Happy Birthday Mom!

I’m havin’ one of these to celebrate!

Katie will probably take care of the other one, so I hope you’ve got your own.

Sports, not labor

Thanks to Groupon, we went to the soccer match on Saturday night. The Revs pounded the Sounders, we got free (well, included in the Groupon) shirts and a good time was had. Luckily the Revs aren’t as popular in their hometown as the Sounders, so Groupon can swoop in and offer deals.

Sunday afternoon was a sunny baseball game. I had a Fenway Frank. No, I am not vegetarian anymore.

Katie did not have a Fenway Frank. Yes, she is still a vegetarian.

NY

We managed to find our way to the hotel. I nearly drove over the poor doorman, who was out in the street hailing a cab, but it was smooth sailing other than that.

I’m not really much bigger than Mom. It just looks that way.

Great people watching from the window out onto Bryant Park.

Mom went for a burger.

The Staten Island Ferry was refreshing on a hot day.

A little Today Show cameo. Luckily Meredith was off that day.

Thanks for a fun trip, Mom!

Mom’s here

Off to P-town we went on the fast ferry.

An indoor boat.

How’s the water temp?

Packed it in

We did finally arrive in Seattle and didn’t waste a minute. Sounders game. Gelato. Shopping. Pizza. Farmer’s market. Sprinting through the airport at Sea-Tac, our names being called overhead. Fun, fun, fun! Well, mostly fun.

Getting down to serious playtime with the toddler.

Happy Sweet Sixteen Crosby!

Holy cow, can you believe this lightrail?

A nice trip over to Columbia City.

Relaxing for a bit.

Grounded

We should be on the plane to Seattle. Instead we are in a seedy airport hotel in Milwaukee.

And my computer screen is fudged up.

But hey, free wi-fi!

Another visit from our local baby

Lillie dropped by (with her parents) for another visit.

She had a lot of smiles and an arsenal of new tricks to entertain us with.

I’m glad I don’t have to grow new teeth any more. Ouch.

Birthday weekend

Another weekend away! This time up north. The rain stayed away for the most part.

Peter manhandled the grill.

Laura sent him loving encouraging smiles.

Chris and Amanda picked a few blueberries for dessert.

Had to put on my muscle tee for blueberry picking. You know. To get rid of the farmer’s tan.

Escape from the city! Look at me out in the nature!

Now it’s back to sweltering and computers.
