Ruby did NOT want to go to sleep tonight. Here she is in our bed well past her bedtime, smiling for the camera.

Last Weekend

22 Oct

I spent this past weekend in Annapolis with a bunch of my college girlfriends. We had such a good time catching up on the last seven (!) years.

Me being away meant that Matty was on Ruby duty all weekend, and of course he did great! She even got to go to the aquarium. Yesterday Matty and Ruby met up with us in Annapolis for lunch. It was an absolutely gorgeous day–just perfect to continue persuading Ruby to go to the Naval Academy.

Kidding! (But not really).

Last night we (meaning Matty) carved pumpkins. Ruby helped scoop out the guts and was fascinated by the finished products.

Ruby Talks Politics

Ruby was SO excited to receive her Romney onesie today she had to put it on right away.

This inspired her to share her thoughts on the election.
