Weekly Roundup

This weekend brought on a terrible, terrible tragedy.  But, for now, I’m going to skip talking about it. 

On a more chipper note, Peanut had a first semi-successful overnight trip.  She woke up and cried about 3 times last night but did fall back asleep.

She also absolutely loved being at the beach with her family.  As did we.

(PS- My brother-in-law caught a lobster (he goes out diving for them).  It was almost as big as the baby.)

And a very happy birthday to my bestie, Kerry!

Let’s see what you may want to catch up on…

Peanut has enough food to last a lifetime.  No kidding.

From Wordless Wednesday,  here are cats in a sink.  I can’t stop laughing. [A Recipe for Sanity]

I’ve been away doing something or another for my company’s bi-annual meeting most of last week.  You must read Gina’s post about the raft competition and other madness we had to endure. [Running to the Kitchen: Brownstone adventure park]
