Best Father's Day Ever!!

For Daddy's first Father's Day, we all went to the park with a picnic basket and the baseball gloves. It was a great time, and we got Daddy to the airport for his "business trip" right on time. Here are some pictures of both of Daddy's beauties.

We think Charley might be ready for food soon, so we put together lox, cream cheese, avocado, and capers on an Everything bagel to get her started off right.

Miss Charlotte Goes to Washington

Two weeks ago, we packed up Miss Charlotte for her first Cross-Country flight to go visit Annapolis, MD. Despite our fears, she flew like a seasoned jet-setter and slept the whole way there and back.
Here is the face she made when we told her she was going on an airplane.
Charley got to spend lots of quality time with Chris and Laura Van Syckle, her sponsor-grandparents. Laura, of course, did her laundry and let her sleep on the couch.

Here is Charley taking in the Nation's Capital and the National Mall. Having been born on Inauguration Day, she has a profound sense of history.
Here she is in the background trying to help her cousin Nick finish a platter of Maryland blue crab.

Here she is as the wheels touch down in San Diego again, happy to be home and near her beloved Mr. Flippy Frog.
