We traveled to Maryland for a wedding of a friend of hubby’s from college. The wedding was outside of Baltimore in Ellicot City, MD at Turf Valley Resort. The resort was really pretty and had a pool, which was totally enjoyed by C. He also rode his bike on the paths they had around the hotel, played on the playground, and played ping pong. We drove up Thursday to make it in time for the rehearsal dinner, and then I worked while the boys played Friday. Friday night was the wedding and thankfully the weather was really nice. Very humid, but no rain or thunderstorms even though then had been predicted.
We got to get some family shots out by the golf course and C looked so handsome. He got dressed and said “I look like the President! The President wears clothes like this.” He did look like a little mini President or executive. He had a cool pinstripe Nautica suit with a lavender tie. I picked it up on clearance and it turned out lavender was the color of the wedding, so he matched his daddy nicely. Hubby had to wear a white Tux and while we had thought he would look super duper funny, he looked really good. My dress was purple with black sheer over it. So, while we hadn’t planned it, we all coordinated quite nicely. It was nice to get away for a few days from the stress of moving and packing/unpacking. Cal got to stay at home and we had someone come stay at the house and he enjoyed that so much, he decided to sleep on the bed with her.

Last Day of Kindergarten

So, it has been 180 days of school today and Kindergarten is officially over at the end of the day. I grabbed the camera this morning; I had taken a picture on the first day:

Beginning of School Day

So, I wanted to get a picture on the last day. C decided he also wanted to make a video, it is very short, but cute. This morning was very “foggy and dark”, so not great weather to take pictures. He does look so much older. I still can’t believe my baby is no longer going to be a Kindergartener. He has decided that starting tomorrow he is a 1st grader. Of course, then he says “But we don’t have school tomorrow.” Nope, not until August, he is pretty excited about “Summer Bacation”.

Christopher wrote a note this weekend. I am sure it is the first of many, many more to come. He basically wrote, "Do not come in if I don't know you." He has said it is going to be for the door on his new bedroom at the new house. I can’t believe he is writing notes to stick on his door already. Pretty soon, we are going to see a note, Mom and Dad Keep Out.

Translated in case the picture isn’t super clear, he wrote:

Do not com in if I do not know you

Pretty impressive for a 5 year old. Even if the meaning behind it isn’t so adorable.

Two Wheeler

C is riding a two wheeler now, big news at our house. We are so excited for him! We tried last summer with no success, can’t tell you how many times I ran back and forth on the grass at the park before we gave up and put the training wheels back on. Then, this summer two of his buddies were riding with no training wheels and he was more determined than ever. Over Memorial Day weekend we went to SC to visit some friends and she just kinda pushed him and he took off, she had said I was holding the bike too much and coddling him. Probably true. She got him riding though.
I had to document his first bike owie. A scraped knee:
