wild strawberry tops

Syd has discovered the wild strawberries in the yard and likes to pick them...she says she's popping the tops off. I remember doing the same thing as a kid...I'd collect handfuls of these things!

first royals game

We took Sydney to her First Royal's game last night in celebration of her Grandpa's 61st Birthday...and I guess you could say in post celebration of her 3rd and a pre-celebration of her Dad's upcoming 34th. We had a good time, and she really like meeting their mascot Slugger.

the specs are here

So her glasses are here and we've been adjusting to them the last 2 weeks. Sydney has been really good about keeping them on and taking good care of them. Only every now and then does she ask to take them off, or fight me not to put them back on. But it helps that I have to wear mine 24/7...and that there are so many other people she knows who have them. I think it is making the adjustment easier. We start patching her good eye next week to help strengthen her weak one...we'll see how she does being a pirate for a little bit!

Matt and his friend Dave just ran their first Adventure Race back on the 7th of May. They came in just under the 8 hour mark and both said it was one of the hardest things they had ever accomplished. Needless to say they aren't talking about doing another one just yet...but I am sure they'll come around when the thought of doing it again isn't painful and the scrapes and bruises heal up! Way to go guys!
