A Weekend in Bethesda

FINALLY, I have some pictures to prove that we, indeed, get out of the house and do stuff every once in a while!

Claire and I got up on Saturday morning, and after breakfast headed on down to her grandparents' house in Bethesda. Her dad and I then took her to Great Falls for a gorgeous hike. It's always difficult coordinating how long we can stay places because her nap falls right in the middle of the day, but we managed to enjoy the gorgeous weather and scenery a few hours before naptime.

Daddy's little rock climber (check out her hiking boots...just like daddy's!)



Made it to the top!

Off the beaten path...

After lunch, we switched modes from nature lovers to party people and headed over to Claire's cousin, Elena's 3rd birthday party. Claire and Elena are fast friends and enjoyed their tea party.







On Sunday, we definitely played it low key and hung around the house in Bethesda. Claire loves to look at the herbs and tomatoes she helped Grandma Jo plant in the backyard, and she is completely obsessed with the apple trees...



And yes, she eats them right off the ground. Bless her wild heart!

There you have it, our weekend in pictures!

Busy weekend! Look at Claire climbing up on the rock! Yay! The hiking path looks so beautiful. I am glad you guys have something like that close by from her daddy's! Then she looks a fine little lady in her little dress for the party. Love them!
