I'm back!

Hello pals!

We're back from our vacation back to the east coast!

Our visit was terrific. We saw our peeps, enjoyed the fall weather, ate delicious food, and went to a beautiful wedding.

I'll have more pictures and stories to share over the next few days but I wanted to just show you this one:

Here's buddy, hanging out in front of her old apartment building in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

She did so good on this trip, you guys. We were hauling her all over the place, on the subway, in cabs, walking all over town. She did so good and had so much fun.

She cried twice when she realized we had to go home. She said she wanted to stay! 

I told her Ori wasn't in Brooklyn, though, and that made her think twice. 


More pics to come soon.

GW sat here to write the constitution. No joke! 

After all of our events were finished, we took a pretty cool tour of the capital. Did you know there is a little train beneath the capital connecting the buildings? 

Here it is! 

This is the view from the capital building. We got to tour a Senator's office. Yeah. 

Old stuff in the capital.

Greetings from 35000 feet!

On my way to DC for a work trip today. It's hard to leave my little family! But it's always nice to get away from the grind for a few days. Next time I am stowing Buddy in my big giant purse though.

Four Years Old

Look, people. I know I say this all the time.

This Buddy age is definitely my favorite.

Buddy is the best little tiny friend a person could ask for. She's so short and cute and her hair is so curly. She's polite and smart and nice. She and I just hang out and color together. She helps me cook dinner. We eat snacks together.

She loves Disneyland. She makes jokes. She is learning gymnastics. She wears shorts. Yeah. It's my favorite.

great weekend photos

me and buddy on a pizza date 

ACK! I have to run to a meeting. We went to the Getty Villa and it was SO NEAT. We took all kinds of cool pics and they had great places for children to play. We went to the Halloween Party at Disney and I can't stand how fun that was. We went to OX for Dr. Brad's big Four Oh. It was a good weekend all the way around!!
