Williamsburg Weekend

Well, this last week was rather exciting. Logan got his head stuck between the metal bars of the hand rail in our apartment. It took a little work to get him out, and I don't think he will do that again, but I wont hold my breath. Last weekend we went to Williamsburg, VA for a suprise 50th birthday party for Paul's aunt and uncle. While there, we stayed in a time-share and there was this miniture golf course on it, so we decided to go play a round. We also indoctrinated Logan into the art of golf. He loved it. Aaron got to ride in the stroller around the course, soaking in the sunshine. Paul's mom came out as well to go to the party and to go help his sister Jackie have her baby that is due, any day now. Things here are going well and we are staying out of trouble, for the most part.

Iwo Jima Visit

We are now pretty much settled in our apartment. The trouble now is trying to keep our place clean with Hurricane Logan leaving a trail of havoc and mayhem in his wake. But what can you expect from a toddler. He is great about helping to clean up though, and sings the "clean-up song" whenever I ask him to put things away.

Here's our family outing at the Iwo Jima monument. We're glad our camera has a rapid shutter speed, because Logan was off in a flash within milliseconds of this picture being taken. Paul is learning photography, and is thus our family photographer, which is why he's not in the picture.Logan got into Rebecca's makeup this week. In an effort to beautify himself, he decided that mascara around the eyes would give him the desired look. If his goal was to look like a raccoon, he succeeded admirably.
Aaron is getting so big! He is only 3 months old, wearing a 6 month outfit! I'm lucky to have pulled it out of the closet in time. Enough pictures Mommy!!! I don't wanna smile anymore!
Daddy and Logan just chillin' on the couch.Spending a relaxing Sunday afternoon together.

Independence Day

Well, we have now been here in Washington, DC for two weeks. It has been a good experience already. This last week was also the 4th of July and Rebecca's birthday. To celebrate we decided to go and see some of the sites on Arlington National Cemetary; they included the Eternal Flame (JFK's grave), the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and several other smaller memorials such as the mast of the USS Maine. We walked through the cemetary, which was really nice, and there are some great views looking out over DC. That night we watched fireworks in our backyard and had an icecream cake that Rebecca had picked out. The little boys were exhaused. They seem to be handling the move very well, partially due to the close park and the swimming pool which they visit almost daily. Life is going great.
