Riley's Visit to Poppy's

My last post included pictures from the first day of Riley's visit....as if there would be days two, three, etc. to follow. Obviously that didn't happen! Who knew?!? Playing with a sweet grandbaby would fill your days and, then, leave you no energy to stay up late and get on the computer?!? But that's no excuse, Erica...you've promised to start blogging all those Riley updates - so, get busy!!

We had a wonderful week....spent a lot of time together as a family - some watching the Redskins actually win! and ALOT just watching the baby do whatever babies do all day!! We ate way too much food (why does that always happen?!?), did a little shopping - Riley is in training, you know - and even visited a few of the local "visitor" spots. We went to Mount Vernon and the guys even toured the Pentagon (thanks Tony).

Indulge me...as I share some pictures from our week! I'm telling you - I may never need to scrapbook again:)

Precious Perfection!!

Playing "Where's Riley" for the 1,223rd time!!
Remember...if she can't see you, then
you can't see her!

One day,we (that would be five adults with one baby)
went to an indoor kids play zone/jump house!
I'm not sure but the "big kids" may have
enjoyed it as much - or even more -
than the baby!!
I'm not sure...do I like it???

YES....I love it!!
Riley's Aunt Emma is so much fun!!


The "big boys" decided to challenge each other to an
inflatible slide race
(the warning written on the side says "tight squeeze" for a reason)
Dad.....and all the other children:)
but
Uncle Tony sacrificing life and limb (literally)
to pull off the narrow win!



Mommy, Daddy and Miss Roo!!
(We miss you already!)



The outside swing was a
Huge Hit!!



Erica and Dad, aka Poppy!!
(my handsome Hubby!)



Having fun shopping -
who can resist trying on a silly hat?!?


Riley and silly Daddy!!
You guys, keep givin' her kisses for us, too!!
