Memorial Day Weekend

I swear, those weather forecasters are smoking something. The forecast for the weekend called for thundershowers starting Saturday and ending w/ showers on Monday. ???? What a gorgeous weekend!

I was desperate for a haircut, so I started the weekend off in DC. Of course, the perk of getting my hair cut in DC is that I then get to go see my nieces (and my sister and BIL, of course). Alex was so excited to see me and was telling me all about aardvarks, meercats, slugs, beetles, and other insects, as well as asking more questions about volcanoes. Guess the princess phase is over!

At dinner that night, I got the biggest kick out of Leah. This girl can just shovel food down. She and Alex split a quesadilla -- Alex ate 1/4 and Leah scarfed down the remaining 3/4. The best, was watching Katie feed Leah, who was leaning into her to get the food. I got such a kick out of it, I had to take a video of it.

The next day, we went for a walk, chilled out, and then went to a playground where I thought I was going to melt in the shade! Leah and I sat back in the shade and had a bunch of fun "walking" around. She's not really walking yet, but really, all she wants to do is move around. I had to get a picture of the cute little outfit she was wearing!

I then came home Saturday night and spent the remainder of the weekend relaxing by the pool. Not only am I thrilled that summer is here, I'm ecstatic that I am not going anywhere for the next couple weeks! I'm so sick of traveling!
