Valley Green

Sunday, May 25th, we took a long walk at Valley Green in the Wissahickon Valley of Fairmount Park Philadelphia (near where Mom grew up). This land was once owned by William Penn back in the 1600's. It's beautiful along the Wissahickon Creek... and even on a hot day, the trail is cool with the shade of the trees. Sydney said her favorite thing that day was throwing rocks into the water.

Little Mermaids

The girls tested the pool a couple weeks ago, it was freezing! The other night we did the hot tub... they went crazy and did not want to get out. I guessing this is going to become a ritual after dinner every night.

hot tubbing fun!

Below are a couple pics of the pool & retaining walls... it's nice to have it all done...

Birthday Surprise!

It was Bob's birthday last week. His Dad and Jan surprised him by showing up at our house on Wednesday.... all the way from Punta Gorda Florida! I think he was in shock at first... with a delayed reaction before giving Dad a big hug.

Sydney is very taken with her Pop-Pop. She cannot get enough of him. Nana spent lots of time playing with Sophia and Sydney and reading books to them (their favorite pastime!) It was a great time!! We wished that they lived closer so the girls could see more of them… I guess we have to plan a visit to Florida soon!


Nana, Pop Pop & Sophia
Friday night in Conshohocken - these crazy bocanuts danced to Jim Morris and the Big BambooBand! Boy does Sydney love her Pop Pop... she was by his side the entire time!

What a cute smile! We went to the Road House Grille for Dinner on Saturday night... Sophia was an angel the entire time... She was having so much fun.
The Birthday Boy with his B-day surprise.
Matt (Jan's oldest son) joined us for dinner... we haven't seen him for a while. It was great to spend some time with him.

Yummy Ice Cream at Suloman's Milk!

Happy Mother's Day!

On Mother's Day we had brunch with Bob's Mom at Basta Pasta in Skippack. Skippack was having their springfest that weekend. We spent some time walking around the village "window" shopping.

Binky Dance

This video is a little old... it's from December when Sydney turned 2, but I thought it was so cute... she was dancing around Sophia's room listening to music. The Beck song came on and she left the room.... only to come back with a step-stool from her bathroom. She typically uses it to reach the ipod, since she already had the remote control in her hand, I guess she decided to use it as her stage.... tooo cute!
