Is it time to leave?

In one of my favorite children's books (Agatha's Featherbed) there is a line..."Everything comes from something. Nothing comes from nothing..."

In three short months we'll be here...picking up a warm beverage as we traipse about with the kids in tow around Colonial Williamsburg. I'm beyond excited. This is a picture of Charlton's Coffee House. I took it last August when we were there. To the average person this looks like a simple building. However, to me this is no simple building. When I was little we started making trips to Williamsburg. Somewhere between the end of Elementary School and Middle School the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation started excavating on this site. This was probably close to 15 years ago. Slowly but surely they completed the task before them and decided to rebuild the structure. Last summer they were in the process of finishing the building. It opened a few months later in November. I can't wait to go inside it. I've watched this building develop for over half my life. Everything comes from something. Nothing comes from nothing. Anyways. There is something wonderful about a hot beverage on a crisp fall day in Williamsburg...ah, is it time to leave?

I'm dreaming of snow...

So...this heat wave is making me dream and wish for snow. Heaven help's only the end of June and it's a long time till winter. Ha. Guess I'll be hoping and praying for awhile...till then I'll be looking at some of these pictures.

Tech Savvy...

How did my 17 month old become so tech savvy? Monday I look up from the kitchen to see that AG has situated himself at the desk in the den. He's got one hand on the mouse and the other on the keyboard. Really? I shook my head and came to inspect "the situation". I then see that AG has pulled up Picasa and is doing some photo editing. And, yes, that second photo is of himself and Hannah! He laughed when that picture popped up on the screen.

On Tuesday I opted to pull the chair away a bit from the desk. Thinking surely he won't climb and mess with the computer from this distance. NOPE. I hear loud music blaring from the den. I come around the corner and see him standing in the chair like Stretch Armstrong. iTunes is pulled up and Acceptance's "Take Cover" is filling the room at the max volume! Really? How did he get this tech savvy?! He never ceases to amaze Andy and me.

What we've learned this week...

1. AG is tech savvy. (Obviously)
2. With each day that passes I'm thinking his crib days might be numbered.
3. He has good taste in technology...he's a MAC fan already. Ha.
4. The desk chair is now across the room when we aren't using it. We're not sure how long this will keep him from finding another way to access the computer but for the interim it's the best we've got.

How to eat...

...Pop-Ice! Find a partner to share with. Lean in and take a bite.


And repeat!

AG has been enjoying lots of Pop-Ice with Aunt Caro at the beach. A first and he is a huge fan!

My life...

...for the next month looks a lot like this...

...and this with the two American Outlaws that I love...

The World Cup has begun! Andy and AG enjoyed watching the Yanks take on the Three Lions this past Saturday. There was lots of father/son yelling at the TV. Never a dull moment with the men in my life.

A word for Wednesday...

I had the dishwasher down while loading it and turned my back for a second...AG found the spoon and spatula that I used when making chocolate muffins. All I could do was laugh and grab my camera...
