Mommy's Bday Weekend

8/27 Friday afternoon Mommy, Daisy and I jumped in the car and headed to James River State Park where I met up with some guys for a pseudo-bachelor party weekend for my good friend Jonathan. Mommy and Daisy continued on to Richmond where Mommy was going to see Beth Moore. My weekend was filled with a comedy of errors, including saturday morning when we got up to go canoeing/kayaking. We had five cars in total and needed four to transfer the 3 canoes and two kayaks to the slip. Perfect, so we thought! We loaded up the cars drove up river and put in, only to realize no one had picked up the food. Thankfully Wendy had packed me a bunch of snacks and my canoe mate, brent, had a lot of cliff bars and beef jerky.... We were lucky! Even luckier when brent lost his fishing lure on a cast, but then found it downstream! and then, he lost his fishing pole through a small rapid, then we found that on the bottom of the river! What luck! Unfortunately everyone's luck was soon to run out. After a long day of paddling down the James, we pulled our canoes back up on shore only to realize Andrew, who's car we left at our site to drive us back up river to the parked cars, had left his keys in one of the parked cars at the slip!

While Wendy as was Beth Moore on Saturday morning, Daisy spent a fun morning with Jordan relaxing and playing in the pool! (and with Godfather Steve, who ran an easy half marathon that morning in his spare time)

Sunday morning was Mommy's 31st birthday. It was a bit of a crazy day since daisy wasn't feeling particulary well the night before or on Sunday, but we still had some yummy birthday pizza from Uno.... spinoccoli, Wendy's favorite. We eventually made it back to Blacksburg, where Daisy and I sung Happy Birthday to Mommy and gave her our gift, a Garmin GPS Watch!

Happy Birthday Jenna

Some pics from Jenna's 2nd Birthday cookout at Homegroup last night. Dom and Kristen hosted a cookout and Dom grilled some delicious fancy hotdogs to go along with tasty cheeseburgers. I should have taken a picture, but I didn't think about it until too late, so you'll have to take my word on that.

Jackie and Daisy outside...

Playing inside...

Singing happy birthday and eating cupcakes... Kristen wisely put down towels just in case the girls spilled cupcakes.

Fun night with friends celebrating.

My 'catch' catching some Zzzzs

For the past couple weeks she's been able to stand on her own... This is one early morning in bed trying to stand up.

She loves to put bags and such on her arm. Like her mommy she's a bag lover!

Who would have thought a parking garage on campus!

My favorite toys are....

Weekend in DC

GT cupcake

What is the best food you ever had when eating out? Did you have to wait in line? Were there tourists taking pictures of the exterior signage and a bouncer at the door limiting the number of people inside? Was it light when you got in line and dark when you came of the establishment? If all of the above sound familiar you may have been experiencing Georgetown Cupcake!

The line begins

And it goes on and on...

We had so much time we taught daisy how to read the menu

And even she got bored of reading it front and back

But they did come around with free water which was very nice.

And then finally...little cupcakes wrapped in cute little pink boxes... It was like Christmas!

Taste and see... The cupcake is good.... Ask Jenna!

Back at the hotel we got our cake and ate it too.

Our pull

A chocolate #2, coconut, lemon, and a chocolate lava. The top two in the right column were for the saias. I can't rember what they got.
