May 22: Joe haircut

When my boys start receiving "mullet" comments, I know it's time for a haircut. He's needed one for a little while...

Anyway, I started this at the end of Joe's sicky day and Ben actually did most of the clipping. We just clipped the back and left the top alone. He was so good and so unlike his older brother who struggles with haircuts. What a sweet boy!

May 22: Town festivities

This is our third year in town and our third year attending this annual event. Lots of vendors, food, a couple of inflateables, and a car show. There was a new addition this year: the Tram. Ben was home with a sick Joe, so i took the kids over for a very quick visit. The kids talk about this event all year -- it's a great way to start our summer.

Pajama passport pictures

I needed to send off applications for the kids' passport cards and took quick pictures with pajamas and uncombed hair yesterday morning. Check out Joe.. I crack-up every time I see the picture. And when I realized that he'll be using the card until he's over six years old, I really laughed. Obviously, he wasn't being very cooperative and I really couldn't take the time to wait for a better moment.

We're headed to Niagara Falls, Ontario in July for one day. I hope it was worth the hassle. :)

May 4: Gettysburg

More fun with preschool friends. We spent a good part of the day in Gettysburg on Tuesday. Lots of rocks to climb, history to appreciate and then shopping afterwards. During our picnic lunch, poor Carolina stepped on a big bumble bee and got stung. She was such a trooper about all of it. She insisted on continuing on to the outlets and then ended up completely passed out in a stroller (we gave her half a benadryl, wow!).

You know, even with the struggle to keep my three young'uns corralled and safe, I was still able to feel the solemnity and spirit of Gettysburg. It is a beautiful and hallowed ground.

May 2: Sheep & Wool Festival

Just a picture to say we were there. I skipped last year because it's not to so easy to enjoy all the vendors with three kids in tow. I should have remembered my sentiments and made alternate plans this year. I'm glad we went, but next year it will be me solo or perhaps I can convince a friend to come. It was hot.

May 1: Gunpowder State Park

We're here with our preschool friends. Freezing cold water, but a beautiful day. Carolina was the only that would actually go out in the water and really enjoy it. Joe really, really liked the mud.

April 24: Redskins Draft Day

Free admittance + Free parking
We took the kids down the draft day party a couple Saturdays ago. I'm glad it was free. There were obstacles courses and tours of the locker room. Lots of Redskins love.

Three Super Bowl trophies. Tim just about knocked over the middle one. Ben caught it real quick and we got a chuckle out of the armed PG county cop standing guard.
