Summer Daze

I’m trying to make sure summer *feels* like summer for Sophia even though we’re both working a LOT.  We have a whole list of activities planned but are trying to make time for last minute treats as well (like last night when we had a last minute play-date/happy hour with our neighbors).  We’ll get to it all, the beach, the pool, ice-cream eating and popsicle making, firefly watching and all of the other fun things that make summer special.

We’ve had a LOT of fun so far its been great and BUSY!  In the last week we went to Lovettsville’s carnival, had “happy hour” Friday night at our cousin’s pool (complete with Soph jumping off the diving board.  Before you ask, yes she was wearing a life jacket–BUT jumped right off without proding AND did it again and again!!!).  Saturday we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant and finished with a GIANT fried ice-cream for Sophia.Sunday we met up with  Armando and Felicia (her godparents and their two year old twins) and headed for one of favorite new spots Sunset Hills Vineyards, where we had a picnic, listened to some tunes and had an overall beautiful  afternoon.

I wish I could say I’ve been dragging my camera along to all these events but alas I have not.  I will get better again but for now my iPhone camera is all the proof I have…..

never underestimate the fun of a picnic and a ball to play with!

Sunday night I was also lucky enough to head up to Baltimore to visit with my college roomie who was in town for some fancy lawyer stuff.  This was our view from dinner.
