Fathers Day

When Patrick wakes up, he’s going to watch this and then open presents.

We’re sending much love to all the Dadas in Joe’s life — Grandpa Mike, Papa Burt, Uncle Rich.

Hope your day is great!

Birthday Terror

There’s still a week before Joe’s birthday, but while visiting his grandparents in New York, we decided to get some cupcakes and begin the festivities.

It took Joe a while to warm up to the idea:

Why??!?!

He eventually discovered that the frosting is pretty tasty, and not that scary after all. Silly kid.

Happy Mothers Day!

Speaking of Mothers Day, if you have 13 minutes to kill and a hanky nearby, watch this beautiful little movie.

I started my day with a lovely breakfast in bed, followed by a lovely giggly baby in bed. And I think this is the first day in two weeks that it hasn’t even threatened to rain!

With the sun out and the ground finally dry, I took Joe outside for some photos. It was nearing naptime so we didn’t get any smiles out of him, but how cute is he:

Yesterday we gathered up two carloads of old clothes, books and assorted “stuff” for the annual Richmond Mommies yard sale. We made about $150 but didn’t get rid of nearly everything.

We did witness an intersting twist in 21st century bargain-hunting, though: A man sauntered up to our table, pulled out a small electronic wand and begain scanning the ISBN code on the back of each of our books. The wand was connected to his BlackBerry, where he had a program that would transmit the ISBN code online and tell him what the average selling price was. He got three books from us for $1.50, and said he expected to get about $30 for them online. Crazy!
