Corpse Flower

It's easy to get swept up in all the politics and forget what an amazing part of the country we live in. Zack and I took the metro downtown tonight to go take a look at the corpse flower that's blooming in the US Botanical Gardens right now. It's not in full bloom yet, but we definitely got a whiff of what is to come! We took the time to walk through all the gardens, take pictures, and then admire the Capitol, Washington Monument, ducks in the Capitol Reflecting Pool, and a ton of other monuments. We really had a great time.

First stitches

I suppose it had to happen sometime. His chin connected with another kid's head during flag tag, resulting in four stitches. He was more upset at the prospect of stitches than the actual stitching.

Conveniently, there is a frozen yogurt place right across from there urgent care place.

This is what I picked up from Kids Night Out last night.

Sometimes he'll still sit on my lap and snuggle.

Just in case...

A good friend

Proud of my boy for passing camp's swim test (it means he can go in the deep end). What I'm more proud of? That he spent time trying to help his friend learn to swim better so that he might pass the test, too.
