We went over President's Day weekend, so it was only appropriate that we honor Mr. George Washington by visiting a statue created in his honor. For any of you who are actually reading the words and not just looking at the pictures, did you know I'm related to George Washington? At least this is what my grandmother tells me, and I don't mind believing it (and reminding my husband of it frequently).
Here are a couple more pics I took as we walked from our hotel to the Inner Harbor. (Quick shout out and thanks to my friend Rachael Pookay who gave me her camera years ago. Rachael, thank you. It has been one of the greatest gifts I've ever received. I love taking pictures!)
We met up with some of our friends for dinner the night we were there. We were originally going to go to Legal Seafood, but they were closed down (sadness). So our friends made reservations at M & S Grill. Did anyone else besides us not know that "M & S Grill" is a non-fancy way of saying McCormick and Schmick's??
It wasn't until after we had finished eating and were looking at the bill that we realized where we had really been. Kris said, "We were at McCormick and Schmick's this whole time!? I wish I would have known! I think I would have enjoyed my meal more."

First we took a walk and went to the park.
Going down the slide head first was his idea, not mine.
We had such a fun time with you Mom and Jos! Come back soon!
Something I'm grateful my parents didn't have when I was a kid: a video camera. Here's a little something that might show up in a wedding slideshow one day... :)
Is it just me or does it seem like he's trying to flex for the camera?

One of our recent family trips was into DC. Jack really likes traveling. I was in the back seat with him for a bit of trip. Here are a couple shots on our way out of town.
Kris told Jack that we were going to visit Uncle George. Then he turned to me and said, "Wouldn't that be cool if we really did know him and we were like, 'Hey, let's go visit Uncle George!'" These sorts of thoughts don't even cross my mind!
I love you too, Buddy.

For all of you who are wondering why all our videos remind you of Charlie Chaplain, it's because our little camera doesn't pick up sound. Who needs sound when you've got a cute, fat baby crawling around!?

Another one of Jack's favorite things to do now is play ball. Below are a few videos that show some examples. These are for you, Mom. (My mom called me yesterday just wondering what Jack was up to these days...that's when I knew I needed to update the blog.)
Just another evidence that boys and girls play differently.
