school has started and i've been slacking at blogging, so here's a crash course summer recap:
-now that we've retired from nursery the kids really miss steve. just last week we were at cafe rio and ran into one of our favorite nursery boys and he said "jessie you come to nursery this sunday, ok" i told him i would (because i often do now that i'm in the primary presidency and over nursery) and then he turned to steve and said "you come too steve" it was cute. since we have retired we've started occasionally babysitting the kids so their parents can enjoy a night away, and of course we don't let them pay us. it is so much fun to spend a saturday afternoon or evening with these kids.
-four year anniversary! of course steve happened to have class the night of our actual anniversary... is grad school over yet?
-went to the nike store in georgetown to meet kevin durant, and steve just needed to have his latest basketball shoe.
-we made a valiant effort to go to the smithsonian museums that we hadn't been to yet. we still haven't seen them all, i just love dc.
-our bestest friends came down from brooklyn for the weekend. gosh i love it when they come to town
-4th of july fireworks at the national mall with friends from our ward
-day trip to gettysburg on the 5th of july during the week of the 150th commemoration. it was a loooong day because there is so much to see, but we had the best time and learned a lot
-i had a root canal! it was awful, well not the actual procedure, but the infection i got in my tooth. yikes. so far we are at 2 crowns and 2 root canals for the year, and counting... (probably getting another next week.. no!!!)
-jay z and justin timerlake... amazing.
-steve's family came to town and we spent the weekend in a small town in southern virginia. naturally we went to a animal feeding farm. the pictures show exactly how much fun steve had with the animals.
-i chopped 9 inches off my hair - pray to the humidity gods that they go easy on us washingtonians the rest of the summer!
-georgetown date nights, found a new favorite dessert place called pie sisters. super cute and amazing pie!
-roadtrip to charlottesville to visit some of our closest friends who just moved their for law school and to see byu v. uva - aka: east coast general conference, every east coast mormon was there!
...tonight we are going to a korean bbq karaoke place for a friends birthday, wish us luck!
