soccer girl?

our little monkey has started soccer.
Beks has been waiting for a whole year;
she wanted to play last year when Abby moaned the whole season
returned to the soccer field after a two-year sabbatical during the time we were in Korea.

Doesn't she look tough?

Here's her game face...
um, let's just say she wasn't feeling herself for the first practice.
And second practice.
Oh, and the first game, but we can look forward to another post on that one!

This is pretty much her team spirit up to this point...she is actually closer to her team here than she is most of the time!

And here we are finishing up for the day...
no worries, there is more to come.
The season lasts until November.

field trip...

Last week, we decided to take Daddy on a little trip to explore something else in D.C.
On the agenda for the day...Union Station & the National Postal Museum!

Here we are in the food court at Union Station.
We all picked what we wanted!
The girlies (of course!) picked Chinese!

All smiles with their daddy!

Posing at the National Postal Museum...

One of our favorite parts of the museum...
We now have a book about him & 20 stamps!  :)
{he looks a little too real in this picture!!}

One more cute one with Daddy...

We walked by a cupcake place when we first got there-
Do you think the girls forgot about it?  :)
We heard about it for most of the day, so on our way out, Daddy got the girlies some treats.
{Mommy got one too...I got a coffee!}

Abby ordered a Cosmo cupcake...

Until next time...
