I have to admit, I find the ROCKIN TUNE and RAD VOCALZ pretty hilarious... but I still don't want this running through my head when I'm trying to experience some sweet sweet slumber.

All suited up for a bike ride to the neighborhood pool! Sometimes I take V there in the evening for some Mommy/daughter time while Mike stays home with Bianca.

A few Saturdays ago, we got some lunch and brought it out to the Diag. It was a lovely day.


And even better, our old friend Spencer was in town and joined us for some food and some card gamin'.











All tired out after a fun day.
