Birthday and brothers

This past week we were having a lot of fun at our house (so much so that there was no bp's science this week. Anyone notice? Jo?). We were lucky enough to have great visitors, and fun birthdays, and brotherly wrestling matches, plus some site seeing was thrown into the mix. Oh yeah, and we spent a lot of time with sunglasses too. Did I mention how much Oliver loves sunglasses?

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law came to visit and it was a grand time. I certainly talked their ears off I tell you, and they graciously obliged. Such conversation does wonders for me. I can't tell you how much I enjoy a good family visit and this was no exception. Made our June for sure.

And we got to celebrate two birthdays! Yep, that's right, these brothers have very close birthdays and it was fun to celebrate with them both. Cheers!

After taking a little detour to get to Mount Vernon, we had a great time. George Washington sure had an stunning view of the Potomac. I was having so much fun I forgot to eat. I know I'm enjoying things when that happens.

And then we got to visit Annapolis, which is always a pleasure. Oliver beat the heat by playing in the water fountain. In fact, he was ready to jump in (to tell you the truth, I think we all were - it was hot). Plus, this time I didn't forget my I.D. I am just catching onto the fact that one should never forget his/her I.D. when visiting any military location, never.

After the week long stay was over, Oliver was ready to get on the airplane with his aunt and uncle when they left. We were sad to see them go, but we loved having them! Thanks for coming out guys!

Happy Birthdays! That looks like fun. We'll have to take a trip out to see you sometime! Are you coming to Utah this summer?

Mount Vernon is one of my favorite places. I wish I lived there.

Good times, indeed! This is what summer is all about.
