Fall is one of the best times of the year

Mornings are normally a hurried extravaganza at our house, but we still try to stop and small the roses every now and again.
1st try at eating food. 1st fail at eating food.

We were out at the Bluemont vineyards for Kim and Jeff's wedding.  It was gorgeous outside.  A bad storm had just rolled through town and cleared out to make way for a wonderful evening.

I see you too.

Just hangin around

JW loves to be near his little sister and they have such a good time just playing around.

And then JW gets bored, but not Grier!!

Grier is in LOVE with the little green frog.  Must be working towards finding her prince.

La La La La going to school.

We had a ground hog that dug a huge hole under our front porch.  He just kept on coming back and digging it out no matter what I did.  So I decided to block the hole with a gigantic piece of glass.  Haven't seen him since.  Ground hog 0 - ChipDawg 1

I bought the bead board for the kitchen almost 2 years ago.  Put it up last week.  Better late than never.

Griers' first post

Grier was sitting here watching tv and wanted to share the experience.

We just got back from the annual trip to Lake Anna (LKA) for the Laughlin family reunion.  I'm sure my math is off a little, but I heard it was the 17th consecutive year!!  It is always big fun, especially for the little guys.  JW was exhausted more often than not.

Some days you just like to take the road less traveled.

Big trip out on the 'BIG' boat with Grandpa and Mommy, smiles optional.

Hanging tough on the dock with Baby Grier.

Mornings are great

Grier was kind enough to let us snap a few pics of her while she was waking up.

Trying to catch up some....

It's been too long and there's no time like the present.  Here we go.  

Happy 22nd birthday Grandpa.

Thanks to a Franklin Glen neighbor for the cool new slide.

Believe it or not, JW acts like Grier's personal body guard.  Very protective (and loving)

It's time to start thinking about the 2024 Olympics.

Family Room and Rain??

We have finished painting the family room. Now we just need to touch up, take the tape down, and put everything back where it belongs.

I think Ashley said it best on Facebook today about this picture. "Where's Waldo?

For anyone that is not from the DC area, it is raining cats and dogs up here. We are getting soaked from head to toe!!
