no, no, no!

This past week Tristan has definitely caught on to the word "no". Not sure where he learned it from, but I can only guess from daycare. Nathan and I try very hard to not use the word no when speaking with him and teaching him lessons, but to explain what he is or isn't supposed to do instead - that's why we aren't sure where he picked it up from. Either way, it's hilarious to hear him answer, "No, No, No!" I've just started saying "Yes, Yes, Yes" when he does this. Maybe it will help reinforce some positivity in his life, instead of focusing on the negative. :)

The weekend was funfilled with both a charity event on Sat for a local four year old little girl who lost her arm and legs due to a misdiagnoses of a broken arm that was set wrong and caused gangrene in the rest of her limbs. We showed up to support her family for such an important cause as she'll need replacement limbs every few years until she stops growing. Despite the reason for the event, Tristan thoroughly enjoyed the DJ that was playing all sorts of music he's never heard. He was on the dancefloor more than anyone else!

Sunday was Family Farm Day at the Zarahdka Farm where we get our weekly CSA. What a beautiful day it turned out to be! They had

so many treats and fun things to do - we didn't know where to begin or when to end! Just before we left, we also grabbed some homemade treats of strawberry and jalepeno jam, corn salsa, and homemade chicken noodle soup. YUM!

And of course, if you know Tristan, his favorite part was playing in the tractor!

Ms. Brea came to visit this last week and we had fun showing her around and catching up on all the fantastic details of her life. Friday night Christine and I took her to the famous Nacho Mama's in Canton Square to experience the wonderful tincan margarita. I am certain she thoroughly enjoyed the experience - as you can see from the picture.

Brea also toured DC in two days and captured a picture I always say I'm going to get and never seem to do. Rock Chalk! I was sad to see her go this morning. Until next time....
