Wine Tasting

The second day was beautiful again, so we went out to Middleburg and visited a winery. It was a little sunny, so Keenan got to sport his adorable hat! In case you didn't notice, there is no limit to the number of adorable Keenan in the Baby Bjorn photos I will take!

Unfortunately, Ben had to work, so he didn't get to come on our adventures, but this is the rest of the group at the winery.

National Arboretum

The first full day in DC was beautiful out so we went to visit the National Arboretum... I think Keenan enjoyed the flowers (if he figured out they were there!)

They had a pretty nice big koi pond too, I think the fish thought if they came to see me I would feed them.

Baby Keenan!

After New York we made our way to Ben and Lori's to visit with the adorable baby Keenan!! We arrived Wednesday night to an adorable new nephew and our favorite DC pup, Daphne.

Unfortunately, Daphne is having a little trouble with CPV and has a new little growth on her lip...Mark and I found it quite entertaining! Sorry Daphne!

Spring Break!

Mark and I started our adventures in New York visiting Chris and Tara... unfortunately my camera was not very active in New York... actually, all I got was our day of kite flying in Central Park. It was a beautiful day and we had lots of fun making the kite go! Mark was the most dedicated.I did my best, but I think it was pretty much Tara's help that got the kite so high!

WOW! I cannot believe the night I had! Mark and I are engaged!!! We went for a picnic on the beach and I had no idea!!! I'm still a bit excited if you couldn't tell... sitting still for long enough to write this post is quite difficult! So here's the ring!!! (sorry I'm not a photographer, you'll have to wait till we see Katy for some good little engagement shots!)

This one is the beautiful box that Mark made to hold the ring! I love it!

This last picture is the amazing view that we had when he popped the question! I tried to take a few others at the beach, but I was a bit too excited, and they didn't really work! whoops!

Happy Easter!

Our family had a nice little Easter Sunday... Katy and I dyed some eggs for our little cousin Amanda, little did we know when we asked Mark to hide her eggs, he would turn the game around and hide half of them for us!

Terrible Teacher!

Ok, no, I don't think I am a terrible teacher...I do think that being a teacher makes me a terrible blogger! So, rather than feel bad about not posting every day and pretending I will do much better I am a bit sad to announce that from now on I'm not going to pretend to post every day. It just isn't happening... and rather than make excuses I'm just going to stop taking the days off. I will still post pictures; however, I'm just going to stop pretending to do it every day! Sorry!
So anyways... Mark and I went to watch the amazing UCLA game on Saturday at Jason and Michelle's and I brought my camera in hopes of getting a picture of their adorable dog, but she was far too excited to let me take her picture, so I got one of these beautiful pomegranate's they got in Greece.
