Summer Fun

A few photos of our summer adventures:

Not a great photo but this is of North Beach, Maryland--a great Chesapeake Bay beach only 1.5 hrs away. We went with our great friends the Wilks family and the blob you see in the water is Nate with Yumi riding on his back.

We frequently meet Nate for lunch at the nearby Reston Town Center. Can you spot Yumi?

With the addition of an infant carrier in the grocery cart, Yumi has been promoted.

Yumi and Emi both ADORE Ayame.

One of my best friends in the whole world Marliss came to visit her family in Maryland several weeks ago--and nicely came into DC and out to us in Northern Virginia for fun times. Here we have all the girls--Banner, the token boy, is out of the picture--at the zoo. From left to right (and forgive me mispellings!): Bria (Marliss), Emi and Yumi (mine), Melia (Marliss) and Eden (Marliss's sister Elaine and also a great friend of mine).

Yankee Doodle Sweethearts

We had a great day! Ward pancake breakfast, visit to the farm, and a multi-family BBQ at our home in the afternoon/evening, culminating in an amateur fireworks show in front of our house.
