We just spent a fabulous weekend with the Kurtz family at Margaret and Nick's home on the water in the Northern Neck of Virginia. The pictures speak for themselves - sun, fun, boating, good food, good times, great friends.

Toots came to visit. We watched the planes at Gravelly Point. Alex also liked pulling Toots's suitcase around the train station.

Fun in the pool last weekend.

In the pool movie.

Grannie babysat for us, and Alex enjoyed the kiddie pool. Andrea came over too, and Yolanda stopped by for a visit. When we got home Sunday night, Alex had a fever and came down with Coxsackie's virus. He's all better now.

Steve Salay's funeral in Lynchburg.

My Dad's good friend and Andrea's Godfather died on Sunday June 1st after a battle with leukemia. We went to the funeral in Lynchburg, VA on Weds, June 4th. Afterwards we were able to see Jackie, Jud, Lauren, Morgan and Aunt Trina for dinner before we had to head home. The next morning before we left, we went by Harrison Street to see the houses Steve used to own, restore, and live in. The neighborhood is now a designated Historic District.

Last weekend and Sunday June 1st.

Canadian geese outside IBM Bethesda on Friday after my class. Brunch at Andrea's for Mom's birthday - mimosa's, champagne punch, crab cakes, Mexican salad, and quiche. Fun with wigs.

Oh, and don't worry, there won't be pictures, but NEWSFLASH - we got a training potty and Alex has been using it. Ah, milestones.

Singing!

Alex likes to sing these days.
