Alex likes espresso, especially before a big trip to DC.

We had another nice trip to DC. Some Greek food in Georgetown, parked near the White House, walked down to the Mall, visited the National Aquarium, the new Museum of American History, played frisbee on the Mall, raced to the Washington Monument, walked back to the car, drove to ThaiTanic on 14th for a great Thai dinner, then headed home. We didn't even leave Frederick til 1pm so it was a short trip, but the kids were tired.

Memorial Day:
Memorial Day picnic at a friend's farm near Thurmont, MD.
Henry launching balsa wood flier, he caught three fish in the pond (by himself).
Dinos in the grass.
After fishing, eating, frisbee, we found the gravel pile - what fun!

Henry IV

Helping hands abound.
Many friends and family came to help celebrate Henry's birthday this past Saturday. Seems like we accomplished quite a bit this past weekend: trail hike on Friday, Saturday morning appointments in my office, YMCA Healthy Kids Day event, making popcorn balls, rice crispy treats, icing, etc., party, sleepover, early Sunday morning mtb ride in the Shed, mother's day bike ride to the library, sushi dinner, movie, and finally - rest.
