This and THAT...

Yes, I know the "THAT" in my title is very dramatic. No reason, really, everything has been pretty, darn great around here. We are loving the weather! Here are some park pics from the end of last week:

Aunt Charley and Ella on the swing:


My bohemian child:


Ella, Joshua and Miss Tabitha:


Tabitha and Ella, close quarters:


Note: Ella eats apples...WHOLE! I love this trick because she works so hard for about 30 minutes to get every scrap of apple and hands me back the stem with a tiny portion of core and a couple seeds. I am certain she has eaten some seeds and there is an apple tree sprouting in her protruding belly as I type!

News Flash: Friday night I went out...and by out I mean, OUT..with the ladies. Soooo much fun. Unfortunately I didn't snap any pics of my beautiful gals/fellow moms hanging out, but I can tell you that it has been too long since the last girls night out! We started at Cork & Co., a wine bar where Amy had made reservations and moved on from there to listen to a DJ spin some tunes at Red Fez where we continued the GAB-fest. Look at this lovely I ran into:



Yep, it is Susan! We were so stunned to see each other we just snapped some photos as evidence and went on our way with promises to see each other again soon.

Saturday the fun continued when Shanto and Aaron stopped by for some Ella, burgers and hanging out around a fire:

The FIRE:


Ella staying a safe distance from the flames with the help of four adults:


Shanto spoiled us all with a coffee cake full of apricot preserves and toasted almonds...YUM! Poor Ella just ran around in circles yelling at the top of her lungs, "HOT, HOT, HOT" because of the smoldering barbeque pit and flaming chimenea. She always has a good time when there is company to show off for. The more Shanto and Aaron soaked it in, the more she would dish out.

See what I mean?
