Holy Moly...I haven't blogged in 6 MONTHS!

When we moved to D.C. and I became a full-time stay at home mother, I really thought I'd do better at keeping up on our lives and documenting events.  As my mom always said, "Well, that's where thought got ya!"  So true...sigh. Where do I even start?  I'm going to try really hard here to do a little everyday.  I will start with old events/pictures and end with newer stuff.

Most important life event: we are expecting a baby boy in November!!  How great is that?!  We are over the moon and Lulu is pretty excited about it too.  Just today she announced to our friends Shin and Solveig, "I'm a big sister!"  She melts my heart!

Other than that, life is pretty mundane these days, which is good.  I like mundane, I prefer mundane. We had a little hiccup with our leave date and will be staying here in D.C. suburbia until September instead of August as originally planned.  I've recently finished a two month Portuguese class in which I learned A LOT, and especially that I have A LOT more to learn.  I am hoping to be able to take an online course to fill the gap from now until we leave.

Checking out some art at the National Gallery.  This first set of pictures are from February.

Finally some art she can touch and we love the big K in the background.

At the cafe Jammin' Java in Vienna...Lulu loves her first 'rock' concert - Rocknoceros. 

We miss New Mexican food... the grub is good but the chile is not hot enough.  Boohoo.

Lulu loves New Mexican food as well...she likes the mild chile.

At 'The Building Museum.'

Now June pics.  Here is Lulu with her cousin Owen and of course Mr. Lincoln (oh and Duck too...lulu has gotten in the habit of taking something with her everywhere we go).

At Lincoln Memorial with some of Darrin's family.

D.C. at night is my favorite.  This is from the WWII monument...which is my favorite monument.

Lu at the WWII monument.

Lulu is 2 1/2 now and her character is enormous these days.

A balloon from the local Farmer's Market.

Green Room

Red Room

Hirshhorn Museum is really great!

Where are you going Lulu?  Sao Paulo.  Duh...

Lulu wanted me to take her picture this morning.  When I showed her she told me  it wasn't her.  The girl in the picture has 'crazy hair'. 
We don't have much planned for the summer.  Hoping for a quick trip home to Michigan at the end of July and I'm going to plan at least a weekend trip to the Atlantic before the summer is over.  Other than that we will spend a lot of time at the pool - Lulu loves the water - and just hanging out being our summer-selves.

    What a great experience it must be living in DC. There is so much to do!
