Sarah not posing


My nieces (and their mom) paid us a visit last week. Sarah, who's 4, is usually set on goofy poses when she spies a camera, a la the 2nd ridiculous picture. So this was a surprise, and maybe just a bit extra serious.

Candy Bracelet


Like crack for a first-time 2-year-old.

Facial expression credit goes to Terry. I have no idea what he was doing, but Zach found it amusing.

First Mojito


Ok, yes, it's a virgin mojito.

Being on vacation (off work for a week, anyhow), I thought it my prerogative to mix myself a mojito with lunch, seeing as we had all the ingredients on hand. Zach insisted that I let him have some.

"No, it's for grownups."


"It has alcohol in it, it'll make you fall over."


I had no better answer so to get him to quiet I offered him a lick from my finger. Instead of disgust, he proclaimed, "I like alcohol!" Then, after some consideration while I went off to squeeze another lime, "but I don't want to fall over."

More 4th - Parade


Sarah, from behind (above) and Zach with his cousins, Sydney and Sarah (below) after the Annapolis Independence Day parade.


Of course, this is how Zach watched most of the parade, except during a couple of the marching bands, when he dropped his hands to listen:


This was followed by staying up late to watch fireworks with massive sound-blocking headphones, insisting that Uncle Tim held him through the entire show while he looked the other way. But now, it's all he talks about, e.g. "Hi Ryan. I saw fireworks!"
