Cherry Picking

Today we went cherry picking in Poolesville and had a great time. It was so beautiful and peaceful to be out in the country. (Alex was afraid to go because he was afraid he'd never get me back to the city.) As you can see, Eloise came prepared. She wore her cherry dress and her sun glasses. Notice Eloise's pink sash. Eloise wants to wear her princess dress everyday so as a compromise, I have convinced her that wearing a sash makes her a princess. She wears it almost everyday! It's a hoot!

Let the picking begin! Eloise could have stayed out there all day.

Happy Fathers Day Alex!

Happy Fathers Day, Alex! You are an incredibly loving and devoted father and husband. I thank God for you!
We love you!!

Sweet Eloise not ready to face the day.

More Cousin Time

They had so much fun together!

Pool Time at Gigi and Grandad's

Dallas Part I

Eloise got lots of water time this past week. The zoo had a great children's river for the kids to play in. Eloise must have stayed 2 hours in there. While the others toured the zoo and actually saw animals, Eloise ran up and down the river ignoring every request that she get out. She had a blast though--so much fun that I think it made her sick that night.

Thursday night we went to "Cool Summer Nights" at the Arboretum to hear some contemporary polka. The setting was gorgeous looking over White Rock Lake and watching the sun set. Pair a Bubba's meal and some Aston's dinosaur cookies with that, and you can't get a better night in Dallas.

On the baby front...

This blog is staying pink! We're having a baby girl! She looked great today on the sonogram, and we couldn't be happier. Stay tuned for some great pics of Eloise with her cousins in Dallas. (The cousins are so cute together!)
