Here are some pictures mom took today when she visited. We went to the Pope John Paul Center and played a little since it was so rainy. I look about as serious as Archer does playing with the blocks.

Because Scout and Brandy like their privacy. we found a more secluded place for them to swim. We had a great time at the park. Then went to lunch with dogs and the babe in downtown Annapolis.
You might think that was the end of the busy day, but we wanted more activity. This afternoon we went to see the beautiful Begert Family for an early dinner. Archer loved learning from Luke about how to play basketball.
All in all it was a wonderful Sunday before Memorial Day.

Even better than trees are David and Archer playing on trees. Here are some pictures from the arboretum yesterday.
This is a Chinese tree that is in the rose family. I have forgotten the exact name, but isn't it cool?!

Archer loved playing in his puddle pool yesterday. His favorite thing was climbing out of the pool and then back in again.
In other news...happy mother's day! David was really sweet and got me some pretty roses. I get to do anything I want today so we are going to do some math (practice for the praxis) and some laundry. We are also going to take a nice walk in the arboretum.

Last weekend was also Uncle John's birthday. So Uncle Hugh and Katharine went to Bass Pro Shop to get him a present. Katharine found a remote control fishing boat that was supposed to actually catch fish. Pretty cool, but would it work? Uncle John went out to the canal next to the James River by our house to try it out. Here are the results.
Even though Archer is not in the movie, he was there with Aunt Mary and me standing on the bridge cheering Uncle John on.

Archer has been cruising for awhile, but since the day of his big doctor's appointment, he has been walking on his own. His crawl is definitely faster than the walk and he falls down a lot, but he is is on his own two legs! I wonder when he will start running?
I wish I had pictures of this past weekend with Aunt Mary, Uncle John, Uncle Hugh and Katharine, but alas, they are on Granny Goose's camera in Richmond. I will get them eventually and post them because they are documentation of such a fabulous weekend. Archer not only got a beautiful silver cup from the Boodad, but also a water table from Uncle Hugh and Katharine and a wooden drum with multiple mallets handcrafted by Uncle John and Aunt Mary. My favorite part on Sunday was seeing Uncle John launch his remote control fishing boat and even catch a fish!!! It was a proud moment for the Maddox family. Thanks for having us mom and dad!
