Busy Day
last update: 04/30 @ 20:36
We started out the day with Sarah waking up pretty sick with some virusy thing. So Robert and I headed off to Lowes to spend his Christmas gift card on supplies to build a kitty condo. Yes we have our eyes on two kittens, “Pinker” and “Panzer,” who are just a bit young to bring home yet.

We expect to pick them up in week or two and keep them in the guest quarters while Zip Drive adjusts to the idea of new kittens in the house. The theory is with two, they will play with each other and not bother Zip Drive too much.

After we did our lumber shopping, we headed over to Ramsey Elemetary School for the first Tee Ball game of the season. This year Robert is on the Timber Rattlers. And it’s very impressive to me how much better he’s gotten at the game with some practice and growing. This game was a bit confusing because the Lookouts also have orange jerseys.

Robert had a couple good hits; played a good first base. And caught a ball bouncing to his short stop position and had a great throw back to first from there. (They rotate positions each inning.) Also, extra bonus, they used the jersey number for batting order so Robert was last at bat twice and the last batter gets a home run to let all the kids get back home.

After the game we headed down GW parkway to Fort Hunt and a birthday party. The weather, obviously, was perfect for a day spent outside. It’s too bad Sarah was feeling under the weather, I’m sure she would have had as much fun as we did.

Easter Sunday
last update: 04/26 @ 22:29
We spent Easter weekend helping out at the camp in West Virginia. Robert seems to have made a friends with Iris (she’s just a little older than he is). The weather was great — it only rained at night; actually, it was a lot warmer than we expected in the mountains.

Fort Washington
last update: 04/17 @ 21:18
The Nationals game was great and the weather was so nice we decided to check out Fort Washington on the way home (metro was doing track work and we were meeting folks so we opted to drive to the game). We’ve seen Fort Washington from Mount Vernon several times and keep talking about going. Robert saw the sign and asked if we could check it out.

We’ve been plotting a canoe trip to storm the castle (well, fort) for a while now. But we’ll wait until after the flood waters and storm chop are down a bit. It’s a very pretty place, made even more so by the spectacular weather today.

Who knew there was a drawbridge so close to DC? (I mean other than the Woodrow Wilson bridge for I95…)

Let’s Go Nats!!!

We had tickets for Robert to bring a friend or two to the Nationals game on Saturday but the game was called on account of tornado and flood watches. There were some wild storms but the most exiciting weather was south and east of here. It would not have been a fun day at the park unless our seats were well sheltered.

Today on the other hand was a great day. Eleanor (from Robert’s class joined us along with her older brother and parents. And we even ran into Kathy at the game. The weather was perfect, the cotton candy was candy-ish and the Nationals won — we got to see three home runs for the home team!
