i surprised pat for his birthday with tickets to NYC and the army/air force game at west point. we had the best weekend! thanks to my mom for staying in colorado with laurel. they had a ball, too, i'm sure!
my sweet friend frances graciously let us stay with her. so good to spend time with her and catch up. wish hadn't been such a whirlwind!
so so so good to hang out with old friends! leslie (kennedy) atanasova and andy and caroline (blackwell) schofield joined us for the bus ride to west point. it was a beautiful *brisk* day - perfect for football. we loved watching the air force academy win the commander-in-chief trophy. GO FALCONS!
once again, i failed to take pictures. my mom was here for 12 days, helping me organize every closet, cabinet, and drawer in this house. my dad came, too, for the weekend and, as usual, accomplished a pretty extensive to-do list. thank you abbi and pops!
here's one picture - getting the baby's room ready. can't believe how close we are!
got a picture of this visitor, thankfully. tom stopped to spend the night on his drive across country. we love you t stilly!
