over the past few weeks, we have entertained several visitors (yay!).
ashley and ryan came to visit shortly after lillian and i recovered from our respective illnesses. (lucky for us, ryan frequently works out of arlington (and ashley’s job provides the flexibility of working remotely). even luckier still, his digs while he stays in arlington are literally two blocks away. two blocks!! hooray for our new home!)
anyway, we had a large time with the two of them. (i haven’t laughed so much in quite a long time.) seriously, their visit couldn’t have come at a better time. (my extended sickness had really gotten me down in the dumps.)
lillian almost exploded with excitement several times during their visit. it helps that she might have one (or both) of them wrapped around her finger.
(watching lillian command a “march” around the house with ashley and ryan following obediently behind – seriously a sight.)
thanks to ashley and ryan for visiting and for tolerating our sometimes rather mundane life with a two year old crazy person. your visit meant so much to us. come back soon!
(or, even better, move here . . . )
julie (aka “juju”) also came to visit. lillian couldn’t have been happier to see her. (below image serves as exhibit a: she almost climbed out the window to get to her when the cab pulled up!)
during julie’s visit, we headed to glen echo park to see a puppet show, which turned out to be amazing. the show – peter and the wolf – featured marionettes, and a sole puppeteer narrated and handled all of the puppets. lillian couldn’t get enough. we plan to go back soon for showings of rapunzel and pinnocchio. (if you live in the area, you should seriously consider attending a show. fun was had by all.)
needless to say, we enjoyed having julie visit (her first visit to our new home!). it is always good to see family (and friends) and to have them in our home.
more family visits are scheduled for april (when baby number 2 arrives). to all of you who haven’t officially rsvp’d to the “come to the hardin family home in april and meet our newest offspring” party, you are still welcome. come. visit us. seriously…
until next time. xo.
