weekend 101

Some noteworthy things from this weekend that has made it very interesting:
1)  Sarah Palin as VP for McCain!  in all honesty, since I will be eligible for the first time to vote this presidential el
ection, I'm paying 
more attention when I can.  I just had chills when 
they introduced Gov. Palin as his running mate!  Wow- a mother of five- definitely gets me more interested in politics!

2)  Pho night out with the Fergusons!  This pic is of Adam Ferguson holding his son Charlie, and you can see Joel and Joe next to them.  They are mesmerized by the shooting fountain in downtown Silver Spring (that fountain gives me the heebiegeebies...but Natalie said it must be chlorinated).  We had a yummy dinner at Pho- perfect end to a rainy day.  Thanks Natalie and Adam!

3) Rachel (Turner) & Mark Distelhorst's wedding reception.  Darn it, I forgot my camera, but it was a really a great gathering.  The bride and groom were just so sweet together.  I got to know Rachel as her VTer- and I'm so glad I did because I just love her!  They left the reception wearing matching t-shirts saying "Rachel & Mark, August 30, 2008".  Tres adorable!

4)  Little cute things about Joe- here he is "reading".  He got this book from it's bin, opened it, and started flipping the flaps (ha!).  He's been doing animal sounds on cue- such as, "arrf arrf" for doggie, and "rarrr" for lion/tiger.  He also says "baba" (bottle) and "bal" (the L is very soft) for ball.  

Tomorrow is Labor Day- Joel is going in to work- but Joe and I might make it out to the annual Kensington Picnic over at Sandy Point Beach.  Hope you have a great weekend too!

Oh, will they have crabs at the Labor Day picnic? Oh how I miss those wonderful crab feasts at Sandy Point! That's great Joe is talking so much already!

Oh, I am excited about the election, too. I am looking forward to hearing Palin at the convention. You should check out Michelle Obabma's speech that she gave at the DNC. It was really inspiring. Can't wait to hear the other side.
