and provides a great lesson on traveling among rush-hour crowds.The children wanted to remove the 'knobs' and slide down the middle of the escalators.
A leisure walk across the Arlington Memorial Bridge-
and onto the Lincoln Memorial.

This summer seems to be a bit cooler than normal, and it made for perfect baseball weather. The weekend event: Skyblast 2008.
I have to admit- PNC park is probably one of the most beautiful in the country. Not that I've been to any other ballparks, but surely not too many have a view like this :) Mama's girl~ If I smile really nice now, will you STOP taking pictures?? OK-- enough of this game-- WHEN do the fireworks start? I think just about everyone knows you don't go to a Pirate's Game to watch the Pirates- sorry fans. Maybe next year will be their year- they're surely due. And onto the game according to Elizabeth. and what was important to Elizabeth? Taking out a small loan for dippin dots~ and peanuts~ and can't forget the cotton candy- she and Jacob were JUST STARVED! Even though they just left a restaurant 20 minutes prior.
I was hoping to contribute my own beautiful pictures of the fireworks, but as I've stated before, not even Photography for Dummies can help me. Couldn't even get the firework setting on my camera to work well- plus I think the battery was almost dead. So until next year- here's an abstract work-of-art. Remember me when I'm famous :)

But never fear because Monty will always be near.
As he flies around in the warm sun of July!
OK- enough corny rhyming- and technically it is August now, but you get the point :). There comes a time when every bug must move on. Monty was a good little pet- the children (and Daddy) loved to watch him develop. I must admit, he was pretty fascinating, and my kitchen counter-top is somehow just too empty. I'm told to never fear however, because Daddy found REALLY neat butterfly kits for next year-- oohhh the adventures....
