Why we love Washington and a few other fun things.

Here are a few pictures from the past few weeks. Onr Friday we actually had a nice day, so when Bob got home from work, we headed to the beach! There's a little 2 minute ferry that takes you to a jetty that the city has turned into a 'park' and the ferry's only open from July 5 to the day after labor day. So, because it's only a 5 minute drive from our house and Bob's work, we headed over. The tide was coming in and so the boys really enjoyed splashing in the water. Especially Bbo.
Pure Delight!
The ride over on the little ferry.

We couldn't get Bbo's eyes off the water, he was totally enthralled and didn't want to leave when it was time to go, he actually cried and tried to get away from me and run back to the water!!
Just another reason to love where we live.
These few pictures are a result of the Olympics being shown the past few weeks.

They have both really enjoyed watching the Olympics. Especially track and field. We were watching the 100M and they did a spot on the Jamaican runners about how they've been running since they were kids and this interested Abo, to the point where Abo has decided he wants to participate in the Olympics, competing in track and field. I told him it was a good goal and that if he practiced, he could do it. So, now when he runs CRAZY through the house and I tell him to stop, he tells me he's practicing for the Olympics. How can I discourage that! So, we compromise and he's allowed to run, but not TO wild and crazy. He and Bbo now like to race through the house, it's a good thing we have a straight shot from one end to the other. 2028 here we come!!! (he'll be on his mission for 2024 and only 16 for 2020, so, unless he's a superstar at 16, he'll have to wait until 2028)
A few days ago we got some peaches from a local farmer and LOVED them.
Bbo devoured his peach and then savored the last bite by licking it. He was so giddy with happiness!

Yet another reason I love where we live.
