Thursday was a crazy day of multiple doctor appointments and packing, then we hit the road at nap time. By dinner, we made it down to the Virginia Beach area to visit my in-laws. On Friday, we went to the beach for the first, and only, trip this season. The water was pretty empty when… Continue reading Goodbye Summer!
Clemyjontri Park is an all abilities park that opened in McLean in 2006. It was named by combining the names of the benefactor’s four children. It consists of four areas, non-skid surfaces, educational learning games, a carousel, a liberty swing, and picnic areas. Every kid can easily find something to love.

It was much better than the last touch-a-truck event we went to, and I think it helped that it was held at the actual service facility. They had front-end loaders moving dirt in addition to the numerous vehicles you could climb inside.… Continue reading Totally Trucks
The weekend didn’t start in the most romantic of ways. I tried to get my glucose test for gestational diabetes done on Friday afternoon, but the lab insisted I should have fasted despite my written instructions saying otherwise. So I started my Saturday bright and early in the crammed waiting room with everyone else who… Continue reading Anniversary Weekend Away
