catching up on some favorite June/July pics

Keeping this website up to date is hard work!  Mom & Dad have work schedules that span 15 hours of each day; add 1 mobile, vocal toddler and 2 dogs in and you have one packed day.   Hollis has become a binkie-less girl nowadays – with very little fuss.  1 “Bye Bye Binkie” Sesame Street episode and a little sweet talk from the ‘rents and voila.  This newfound mouth freedom is directly responsible for an uptick in vocal progression.  Flowing words together like she was in the Wu-Tang Clan, y’all!  Well, ok, “Mommy shoes” and “more cheese” are probably not in their lyrical repertoire, but they are in Hollis’!

2 Rare Bird Sightings in the Sprouts Parking Lot

#1 – the rare “Arched-Back Warbling Toddler”.  A migratory, seasonal bird who appears close to nap time or when the mother bird’s raisin & juice supply runs out.

#2 – The “Crested Blue Green-Belly Beetle”.  Long since thought extinct, this rare-colored Beetle once roamed freely through the streets of Reston, Virginia.  Scientists had located it’s cousin of the bluer variety, but this is indeed a treat to have a sighting of the green specimen.  This pic does little to settle the long-running feud between the 2 theories as to which variety originated from the Old Trail Drive location.
