Hope you all had a fun Halloween!
It was a beautiful day and we had lots of fun cheering on all of the runners. As nice as it was - it was still too chilly for Taylor to take her jacket off. She was sad cause she really wanted to show off her new tshirt that Aunt Jack bought her......
TP had a fun weekend of wearing new clothes from Aunt Jack & Uncle Todd. Today it was the running shirt and yesterday she wore her new pink Maryland Terps shirt from Todd for the Homecoming game....which we won on a last second field goal! GO TERPS!!
Hope everyone had a good weekend! :0)
Later that afternoon after both kids were fed and rested we headed over to Sterling Fest. It was almost over by the time we got there but we were still able to walk around the local community booths and check out the scene. We walked over to the Fire Station and were lucky enough to run into Becca! Taylor actually woke up while we were there so we got a pic of us with our favorite volunteer firefighter!!
The fun didn't end there. After Sterling Fest we went over to Ben's parents house to see Billy who was home from VA Tech for the weekend. Taylor was so excited to see her Uncle Billy.....
We were all excited to see him. We miss you buddy! :)
Taylor was apparently pooped after the fun day because after she took her last bottle she slept from 9pm to 7:30am!!!!! YESSSSSSS!!! ;0) BUT that's actually not the most exciting part of the morning. She rolled over for the first time and Ben and I were totally taken by surprise! She has been so close for a few weeks but she hasn't been able to get over shoulder. This time I was holding her and I put her down for a second and over she went! Just like that! Big day for us! It was a great start to a long day for me. I had to work at the bar but it wasn't too bad....despite a horrible Skins game.
Only 2 more days of work for me this week. We're leaving on Thursday morning to head down to Charlotte, NC until Monday. We decided to take the train so we didn't have to worry about stopping whenever we needed to feed or change TP. Keep your fingers crossed that it goes well!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
After dinner I took up on an offer from Tom & Angela to watch TP for a little while since one of my most favorite bands - Emmett Swimming - was playing at Ned Devine's. They very rarely play in the area anymore and the one time they do - it's the same weekend that Ben is gone. It worked out well though - I got to see the band play a set and TP got to play with Sammie and Baby Daisy (T&A's dogs) ;0)Sunday morning we got up really early, got all bundled up and drove to downtown Herndon to get on the WO&D Trail and wait to cheer on Aunt Jack & Uncle Todd. The background for this adventure is.....Sissy & Todd are training for the Marine Corps Marathon. They have a pretty intense training schedule and this past weekend run was the longest one - 20 miles. They start near their house in Fairfax and the 1/2 way point was right smack in the middle of Herndon. When I spoke to Jac the night before, I asked her when she would be at the 10 mile mark so we could meet them and she said...."well, if we start around 6:30am then we should be there around 8:30". Honestly - I was at a loss for words when she said that! DEAR CRAZY!! So we got there around 8:15 and started walking. It wasn't long before we could see them running towards us and the next thing I know - Jac asked if she could push TP and away they went.....
Jac & Todd running with TP
TP all bundled up - it was only 60 degrees in Leesburg when we left the house! Thanks to Leslie S for the outfit she gave to us at the baby shower - it came in very handy!!
I have to say - I'm very impressed with Jac & Todd and how much time and energy they have put into the training for this marathon. We'll be there to cheer you on on the big day!Next it was back to the rents house for breakfast and relaxation! They left to go downtown with Joan & Bob so it was NAP TIME for Taylor and I. Boy did that feel good! We woke up just in time to watch the Skins game. HAIL TO THE REDSKINS BABY!!! I love my husband but man it feels good to beat his team. ;0) Once the game was over it was time for the fun to continue and we headed over to Ben's parents house for Melissa's bday dinner. Taylor was so happy to see her Daddy! We had a nice time and a delicious dinner. Taylor laughed a real laugh for the first time when Nana (Ben's mom) was playing with her. I got some great pics - the link is below.
