Mother's Day

Mother's Day somewhere up top in Pine Grove Furnace. Alex's new GPS toy informed us that we hiked 6 miles that day! All with the kiddies. Although we intended the hike to be more like three miles. My two yr old did 3 of the 6 miles. The real Mother's Day present was that all the kids were in such a good mood, happy, smiling and telling stories. It was a lovely day-
A lovely day to be me.

Katie, my sister, came for a visit. It was so fun to see her and.. she is going to have a baby. She is just beautiful.

We went to the D.C. Zoo and saw the Pandas. They were really tearing into the bamboo, almost like it was edible.

Here is a sketch of Mae Xiang the Panda by Juniper...

...and another sketch of Mae Xiang by me. She, the panda, is also going to have a baby- they hope. Yay! baby pandas. I could not get enough of having Katie here- come again soon.

Did I invent the phrase "Cuter than a Panda's ear?" well I should have. Panda's ears are cute.
