The Great Outdoors

After being cooped up indoors during the summer heat in July and August, Alice has been enjoying a lot of fresh air and sunshine over the past week.

We went on a lovely picnic along the river in Alexandria with my friend Marya and her adorable little boy James.

"Hey, James, can I punch your ear?"

"Oh, that was so much fun! I just loved that!"

We had a little happy hour in the yard behind our building and came very close to perfecting our self-portrait technique.

We dined al fresco at the Thai restaurant across the street and snuck in our fair share of patting, shushing, and snoozing between courses.

And, we spent an afternoon at Great Falls Park.
Alice was just brimming with anticipation when we arrived.  She wasn't even annoyed that we put her in a ridiculously over-sized hat!

Needless to say, the park was a big hit, and as you can see, Alice was simply awestruck by the natural beauty of the landscape.
