Oliver

Mamas & their babies

I met Blair in 2007 on my first visit here to West Virginia.

There was a party going on, eating, drinking, dancing and we hit it off right away.

Who knew that 4 years later we would both have kids?

Blair is a busy mama. Not only does she run a successful restaurant in Hillsboro (Pretty Penny) but, she also has two little ones to take care of.

No matter how busy she is though, she is never too busy to catch up and have some fun.

A birthday celebration

Yesterday was my birthday and what a great day it was!

I woke up and the sun decided to come out after not being out for days.

I got to chat online with my brother. 🙂

I got many (many, many) wonderful birthday wishes on facebook from all of my friends.

Our friend Blair and her 2 kiddos, Penelope and Oliver came over to play.

Will, Lily and I went back to Snowshoe mountain to Taste of Asia for a yummy sushi lunch.

Once we got back home, Lily and I took a nap together.

AND…..Hayes made us all lobsters for dinner.

HELLO!!!! VIP treatment. 😉

ARTsy wednesday

It’s ARTsy wednesday!!!!

Did anyone even notice that it was missing for a while? (it too was on vacation)

Today I would like to introduce a new artist.

Lily!

Just kidding….

We had art in the park yesterday at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden for the second time and I thought it appropriate for today’s ARTsy wednesday post. 😉

There weren’t as many moms and kids as last time and it was super hot and muggy but we still had a great time and can’t wait for the next.

Farewell Miss Claudia

Today was Miss Claudia’s last day doing the readings at the library. (yes, another Claudia)

I know that all of us moms were a bit sad to see her go.

Miss Claudia is so animated and so good with all the little ones.

We hope the next person will be just as good.

Lily was miss social today. She was ALL over the place!

She was crawling over to all the babies, mommies, Miss Claudia and smiling up a storm. I think she is coming out of her shell. 😉
