Garden 2014

This year we planted our normal flowers (petunias, dahlias, lilies, celosias, and many more I can't remember the names).  But we also decided to expand our vegetable garden.  We planted our usual (sage, cilantro, parsley, dill, basil, rosemary, lavender) AND we planted some new fun ones (red, yellow, and green bell peppers, poblano peppers, and tomatoes (cherry, plum, and heirloom)).  We did pretty good.  I need more room!  City life isn't very spacious sometimes.

Summer Fun

Or should I say summer food!

Sometimes it is just too hot to have a picnic outside.  We decided to have a fried chicken picnic inside to stay cool and help wind down from a long week.  (It was Shawn's night to cook) :)

perfect little picnic

We also met up with Brent and Katie for Abbey Burger in Baltimore.  It was quite the experience (small bar, big soccer game).  We just wanted to eat burgers.  After finally being seated we ordered some amazing waffle fry nachos and I had a yummy turkey burger.  Shawn had a kangaroo burger; I tried it and it wasn't too bad.  I should have been more adventurous and tried the meat of the month which was New Zealand Red Deer (lesson learned).

Shawn's 11 Anniversary of His 29th Birthday

Also known as his 40th birthday...  I wanted to do something big for Shawn this year but with our work schedules/travel and trying to find a babysitter for Clyde it just didn't happen.  Oh well!  Next year, right?!

We went out for Mexican food and margaritas with friends and I made him a whiskey/bourbon cake.  He was a happy man!

Happy Birthday Baby!

Marc Broussard

Some friends of ours took us to the Marc Broussard concert for Shawn's birthday at Rams Head on Stage.  It was awesome.  Marc Broussard sounds so so good live!  I am now a fan.  Beauty of Who You Are is a favorite now.

Thank you Cricket and Emily, Brent and Katie, Deb, and Daryl!

Father's Day 2014

My boys and I are very lucky to have the best daddy!  He takes care of us and does all the daddy things around the house.  I can't wait till we have more kids to help Shawn celebrate this day.

 Too excited to let daddy open the presents by himself
