Last weekend was girls weekend in DC. We did include Chad and Oliver of course for most of the festivities. We just couldn’t be without them. Lindsey, Natalie and Carly grew up together. They lived across the street. Needless to say, Sue and I shared advice and all that goes with raising kids. Natalie has one son named Gavin and Carly has a daughter, Sienna and twin boys named Graham and Landon. Needless to say, they left their children home with their fathers for a well deserved vacation. I flew in Thursday so I could grandma sit my sweetness, Oliver. It was so fun and he was good as gold. He has sure grown in a month’s time. I went home with a worn out left arm from his weight. He is a healthy breast fed baby. Sue, Natalie and Carly arrived around 1pm Friday and came straight to Lindsey’s house to meet baby Oliver.
We all relaxed from traveling and enjoyed Oliver. Lindsey got home from work, Chad arrived and we all went for a wonderful dinner together and much conversation.
We planned the weekend and tomorrow was visiting the city of D.C. Carly had never been there.
Chad had a little problem getting Oliver’s sunglasses on right. He’ll get it figured out. 🙂 He’s such a good dad.
What do you think of that Grandma S?
Lindsey brought this great blanket and we all took a lunch break. Food truck food is the way to go in D.C.
This was the big thrill heading back to the car. The presidents motorcade sped by on the way back from the presidents speech at the Children’s National Medical Center. It was impressive. The secret service officer there yelled at us to get back and the whole crowd went silent. They do a great job of taking command of a crowd. Well, this ended the day in D.C. for Chad, Linds, Oliver and I. The other three headed to the monuments and we went home to give Oliver a nap in his bed and prepare dinner. Chad made the whole dinner. Grilled vege and chicken skewers with grilled pineapple. What a great hubby! Lindsey, you are a lucky girl! So am I.
We decided to spend the day at the outlet mall the next day. Chad kept Oliver and it was a shop a- thon. So good to all be together again. It was a great time. Needless to say, Natalie and Carly were in close contact with the little ones at home. I joined them just for the photo.
