A Break from the "B's"

It seems like our life over the last couple of months has been consumed by the letter "B"-Basketball, Babies, and Birthdays. Every weekend brings another birthday invite from one of Atley's classmates. Scott plays basketball twice a week and Atley plays on Saturday. And with March Madness just around the corner basketball will remain a big part of our life over the next month. I have been busy with doctor's appointments, baby bump brunches, baby showers, baby stuff shopping and just generally complaining about my aches and pains and sexy figure . Did I mention that there are 17 women in my life expecting babies and two of them are having twins? That's a lot of babies and a lot of parties. Despite the birthday, baby, and basketball schedule we did manage to enjoy the 50 Degree weather we had this weekend. It is so exciting to see the snow slowly starting to melt and the daffodils beginning to peek up through the frozen ground. We made our way to OLD TOWN Alexandria, so that the boys could spend their good behavior money at their favorite toy store. (Hey, don't look so surprised they behave well occasionally!) Then we had SMORE's at one of our favorite restaurants. The boys played with their new treasures in the "empty for winter" fountain at the town square and then we headed to Gravelly Point to chase seagulls, search for sea shells, and watch the planes take off and land at Reagan National. It was so incredible to be outside again after such a long and hard winter. By the way, don't forget to vote for your favorite baby name on my sidebar!

Hey Melissa,
I just booked flights and hotel. We're coming to D.C. this summer! I love reading about all of the places you take your boys. I'm so excited to explore with my kids there for a week. Let me know if there's anything I shouldn't miss.
P.S. Greg has always loved the name Harley. I just thought Harley Headlee sounded a little cheesy, so we settled for Marlee (Marlyn's nickname).

Sorry, MeliSa - as soon as I hit publish I realized I spelled your name with two s's instead of one. Didn't mean to be insensitive.

Glad you're getting to see the sun light and the ground for a change. It's hard being trapped inside the house. You don't have long until your girl is here. Pretty exciting.
