reason #038 why i love summer.

seeing baby girl reach out and try to eat a watermelon?
pretty cute, summer. pretty darn cute.
cancels out the sticky humid weather, shattered iphone screen,
accidentally locked ourselves out of the house with an overheated bulldog,
and not getting much done on our to-do list week that we’ve been having.
it really does just keep getting better and better. you know?

crepe night with one of our favorite little families.

on sunday we drove up to maryland to visit one of our favorite little families and enjoy some sunday night crepes with them. kids don’t come cuter than these little barefoot friends. and i don’t think eleanor has ever been so popular or had so many little hands wanting to hold and take care of her (my arms were thankful.)
as for kingsley, he was on cloud nine the entire visit. i know this because upon arrival home, somebody snored loudly for 8 or 9 hours straight. kids sure know how to make a dog feel old and out of shape. ;) and he ate up every minute of it.
thanks for a great evening, nyborgs!

we’re going on a bear hunt…(or rather, to the zoo!)

on saturday we took eleanor to the national zoo to see the animals. i don’t think she really cared for much besides trying to eat my snow cone, but josh and i really enjoyed ourselves. the weather was beautiful, all the animals were out and about and the gorillas put on quite the show for us!

this tiger in the last photo made josh and i laugh so hard. he reminded us of kingsley when he’s scratching on the front door because he needs to go potty or wants to play outside. this tiger would not stop scratching at the door and looking through the window. i think he wanted dinner. and a friend.
*ps. anybody else obsessed with the children’s book, we’re going on a bear hunt? i think i could read it every day to E, imitating how my own mother read it to me (she’d chant the words in the most animated voice ever) and never grow tired. i’ve probably already read it one hundred times since february. i love it so.
