Our Weekend

Friday night Melissa graduated with her MBA from George Mason University, so Saturday we went to her big party at Tami and Andy's house on the river. It was a gorgeous day and we had so much fun spending time with friends and family. About a week and a half before the party, I was struggling with what to get her as a gift, and my gf Lindi suggested I do a scrapbook. Putting a scrapbook together in a week and a half and no easy task, but once the idea was there, I couldn't push it away! And, I did it! I'm SO happy I ended up following through with it because Melissa absolutely loved it and we have so many amazing pictures and memories together, it's very special. Here are a few pictures of my 50 page scrapbook masterpiece.

Claire Bear was NOT in the mood for hugs, kisses, or company in her chair.

Sunday was Warrior Dash Day at our house. Jake and Jason ran it early in the morning and then came to our house to shower and hang out and wait for Tommy, Randy, and Cody to run at 3:30. Another beautiful (but hot!) day, and it was fun to see them come out covered head to toe in mud!

Luke is big on “cheeeeeese” lately.  He’s saying it in all three of those pictures

Just finished!


with some other Warriors- Jason, Jake, Cody, Tommy, and Amy


Poor Luke wanted Tommy to pick him up so bad when Tommy was done running and just didn't understand why Daddy couldn't hold him!
And finally, happy summer from the creepy statue!



  1. What a great weekend! Congrats to Melissa! Tommy looks like he had so much fun.

  2. Haha, oh my goodness the statue gets me every time, so funny! Luke is looking so grown up these days!!
