I am in a babysitting co-op for our new neighborhood. Basically, we each get 20 hours of babysitting to start with. We trade cards to keep track of usage. All the moms in the co-op live in our neighborhood. We meet once a month to schedule needs, but can call anytime we need help. David has a new friend from this co-op. His name is Declan. He is a few months younger that David. David calls him , "Baby". David has now played with Declan twice and both times he had so much fun! Declan is precious!! The only time David shed a tear, was when Declan tried to get on David's prized horsey. After a kiss and hug from Mommy, David decided to not only let Declan ride the horse, butto help him put on the necessary cowboy hat. The two boys fell asleep after a bunch of fun and laughs! This is good for Mr. Olson, as he is learning how to share. A new thing that he has NOT been fond of. HA !
Grammie came to visit ! YIPPEE !! We had soooo much fun! We even got to hang out with Uncle Matt as he was in the area for a wedding! Double fun! We visited the Shenandoah Valley, and went to the local farmers market. We went to the Museum of American History and looked at the trains, trucks and the former First Lady ball dresses. We took Grammie to see the REAL Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and the National Archives. We even drove to Lancaster, PA to the Amish areas and shopped and shopped. We finished that fun day by eating at a place called Good and Plenty. It was GREAT food, served famiy style. We finished the weekend with a crab and shrimp fest. 2 1/2 doz. crab, 2 lbs of shrimp, fresh from the Chesapeake Bay! YUMMY! We spent time playing and swinging on the front porch swing. Thanks for a fun week Grammie and Uncle Matt! Come back soon!
We visited our national zoo and aquarium recently. David absolutely loved the animals. His favorites at the zoo are the elephant, giraffe and horse. He enjoyed playing in the cooling mists as well. At the aquarium, he loved the big blue crab the most. And since Finding Nemo is his all time favorite movie, he was sure that he saw Nemo, his dad Marlin, and Dori. Come visit us and we will take you to our nations zoo!
David and Daddy had yummy breakfast with sausage, coffee, OJ, cake cakes (waffels), and blackberries. David LOVES fresh blackberries from the farmers market, as evidenced by the leftovers on his face. Breakfast with Daddy is so much fun!
