Exhaustion (Andrés)

School just wipes the biscuit out...

Shoes on. Sitting up on the living room sofa. For almost an hour and a half.

First days...

Boys' tea party and Emi's last (we mean it this time) first day in front of the ubiquitous red doors at St. John's Preschool.

happy 4th

That sums up our July 4th holiday.  Happy.

Our day started with the neighborhood parade, followed by the annual post-parade brunch hosted by the Mays family, then a barbecue and fireworks here.

our dnc adventure

We braved the iffy weather and secret service to head uptown this afternoon and see what we could see. Unfortunately, we didn't get too far.

We promised the kids an adventure and we didn't disappoint. By the time we made it to 8th and McDowell Sts heavy downpours forced us under the porch of a nearby townhouse while we waited out the rain.

We waited and waited. After a half hour, we decided we'd had enough.

Emi was disappointed not to get to see Mr. Obama, but tacos from one of our favorite old haunts and the promise of a chocolate croissant from Amelie's cheered us all up.

Yes we can!
