Scrapbook: Stroller Ride

14 Aug

These photos were taken back in June, when we had a brief cold spell in between two hot spells regularly known as “summer.” This year it actually rained when the local schools were having their graduations–something we hadn’t dealt with before at the school I still worked at. The weather was strange.

This particular day I’d dressed her in shorts and a t-shirt, and when she asked to go for a walk in the stroller, I had to put socks and legwarmers on her. Because she was very into playing “baby” (I blame her obsession with the Babies documentary) she wanted to be wrapped up in the blanket, too, even though I didn’t think it was necessary.

As we strolled through the neighborhood we passed a man doing heavy yard work in his front yard. He was shirtless and sweaty. Isobel took one look at him and shouted from her stroller, “MOMMY, HE’S NAKED!”

It’s a great way to meet your neighbors! Try it sometime.


Scrapbook: Justin’s Birthday

26 Jul

My bestie’s husband is a good friend of mine. In fact, there are very few people I’ve been friends with as long as I’ve been friends with him. This includes even said bestie Angela and Anthony, my husband. Considering Anthony and I have been together since 1998 and Angela and I met and became friends in 1997, this is saying a lot. For one thing, it says how old I am.

But for another, it says how old Justin is. HA! Older than I am.

Also it was his birthday at the end of June and we celebrated by blowing shit up. For America. Because we are patriots.

Patriots who like fire.

Here’s the birthday boy himself, checking twitter or whatever in the midst of a giant explosion. NBD.

Happy Birthday Justin!
