The big six year old pirate party was Sunday. Check out the cool pirate ship we made (and Robert’s pirate balloon). More photos in Robert’s section.

Robert turned 6 yesterday. It was great to have Robin here for the birthday morning and Robin attracted Joanne and inspired us to have an Ethopian birthday dinner. By the time we got home Robert was pretty fried, so today was the first day of playing with any of his cool new stuff. First out for a test run, the marble maze courtesy of Grand Martha. Next was Operation then the Snap Electronic kit courtesy of Harry and Elle.

The big party is Sunday — wish us luck…

Happy Birthday Alexandria!
last update: 07/11 @ 11:09
Alexandria celebrated its 261st birthday on Saturday night. Robert and I walked down with a picnic dinner and Sarah joined us a bit later. This is a view of the festivities before the fireworks (music on the stage, kids running around, etc) through a rainbow light saber. Robert will tell you that, “rainbow is my most powerful setting.” (There are 7 other options — what would we do without little computer chips…)

Once it was dark enough, the fireworks started with the traditional 1812 Overture — with real howitzers. We were sitting right behind them and had a great view. If you look closely, you’ll see two of the firing squads below this burst (this was after the Overture, so they were not so busy) and a new firework shell taking off from the barge between them.

Just because of Alexandria’s location, the fireworks would pause for a couple minutes now and again to let a plane land at National Airport. The last pause seemed to be the end so we were halfway back to our car before the last round of fireworks went off.

We had a great trip over the Fourth of July weekend to join a group camping on Assateague Island. Part of the festivities was this game of World Cup Twister — more photos in the vacations section.
