Memorial Day

We had a great long weekend for Memorial Day. I took Friday off for a nice 4 day break. Our great friend, bridesmaid and Lucy's former roommate Jeana was in town as well. On top of that, we threw a BBQ for friends, family and neighbors yesterday. It was a jam packed, exciting, busy, exhausting, fun weekend. But the best part of it all is the pictures courtesy of Jeana!!! Check out the new album at the right or by clicking here. Some sample pics are below.

May lull

It has been a little dry spell here on the blog, mainly because I have been preoccupied and/or out of town (actually the real reason has more to do with Mario Kart Wii than anything else). But life goes on despite the lack of postings. Spring is finally here and we are looking forward to spending a lot more time outside.

At 5 months (as of yesterday), Sam is really beginning to learn new things quickly. He has been rolling over in his sleep this week. While I've still not seen it, Lucy sent a picture message on my phone on Tuesday when I was away at a conference. He also got a bunch of new toys this week including a jolly jumper and Elmo play station (from the Freedman's) that he stares at longingly from across the room. Sam loves to stand in his saucer and look at things around him. Also, he is now putting everything he can find into his mouth (including his toes!). That's right, he found his feet, and boy are they cute.

On the adult front, as I mentioned above, Lucy and I are hopelessly addicted to Mario Kart Wii. I come home from work and Lucy will be still steaming about not getting a gold in the Star Cup earlier in the day. I think pretty soon we'll need an intervention.

Finally, big congratulations to Aunt Zaidee! Today she graduates from law school and we've got a big celebration party to go to tonight. It should be a blast. Anyway, with Memorial day weekend coming up, I'm sure I'll have time to post some new pictures and video so check back soon.
