29 May

My Mom and Dad, Ruby, and I drove out to beautiful Hilltop Farm today to spend some time with Elise. Ruby loved frolicking (there is really no other word for it) in the fields, seeing the horses, and of course spending time with her Auntie, who is exceptionally good at multi-tasking.

Memorial Day

28 May

We had a very low-key Memorial Day, relaxing at home with family. My sister and brother-in-law and their kids came for the weekend, so of course Ruby had a wonderful time with her cousins.

I do always like to take some time on this day to remember our fallen heroes, who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

~Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

We walked down and enjoyed some delicious frozen custard at The Dairy Godmother this afternoon, which happens to be where President Obama likes to take Malia and Sasha for a treat.

Ruby had a great time at her friend Charlotte’s third birthday party today. She especially loved playing with the water balloons (it was hot!) and eating cupcakes.

Three

24 May

Three years ago today I married the man of my dreams, and life has only gotten sweeter since then. Feeling very blessed for all the love we have.

For our anniversary I got a bike trailer so we can start biking as a family, and this evening after work Matty got a helmet for Ruby. She loves it!
