Mall Monday

We did not intend to make today "mall Monday."  Our intentions were much more noble.  We planned to go to the Air and Space Museum, but our quest to find Alex a new pair of jeans reluctantly lead us to the mall.  Fortunately it was a nice mall, and we had a yummy lunch at CPK.  I love those BBQ chicken salads.  And, came away with a wonderful photo for the day!  Unfortunately we left jeanless.

Charlottesville Monday

We spent Sunday night in Charlottesville with our wonderful friends Maury and Justin.  We had a relaxing time hanging out with our friends and enjoying the beautiful countryside.  Unfortunately I didn't get any photos from our trip, so I'll just post my most recent photos of Alex.  We took these to put up on the church bulletin board where all the other staff members are.   Doesn't he look cute?  (-:

Mount Vernon

Another monument Monday!  I'm not so sure Eloise likes the site seeing as much as we do, though.  She insisted to push the stroller the whole way, throwing a tantrum if we interfered.  Finally we distracted her with food with some help from Washington's doctor and slave and their funny accents and ditched the stroller.  She never knew it was gone!  She continued to walk the entire rest of the way!  Rather impressive.

Around the House

Check out the buck in our back yard.  We have all kinds of animal neighbors including, quite often, deer.  This guy was a beauty.  And, here's a great photo of Eloise and one of her great towers.  She loves building them and watching them fall.  Uncle Drew will be proud of this one!  (-:

Milestone Monday

We've been trying to make Mondays "Monument Mondays" by visiting a different Washington monument every Monday.  However today was "Monumental Monday" because is took us 4 hours to get our licenses.  We prepared for the long haul, but still, after that amount of time, we were done with the day.  No monuments for us.

Crouching Lamb, Hidden Dragon

We geared all up for Halloween night.  We visited a few neighbors early in the evening and then returned home to wait for the hordes of kids that would pound on our door.  They never came!  Ok, 6 total children appeared at our door, 3 groups.  It was so depressing!  We were bored and have so much extra candy.  Next year our neighbors and I have a new plan: we'll set up a table up the street (since we're at the end of a street) and offer adult food and drink as well as candy.  It'll be much more fun than sitting at home waiting for kids who never come.  Our only consolation is that we had the cutest Lamb on the block.  (Someone thought she was a marshmallow!)
