It’s a rainy day and the nanny babe is sleeping, and I actually edited my photos in a timely manner – so here’s a quick picture post (which is what I used to call them when my photoblog lived on my livejournal.)
Last week Mikey played two shows, but I only brought my camera to one of them – on another rainy night, in West Philly.
This dreamboat is releasing an LP soooon. It is the perfect album for fall/winter. You will see. He plays as The Goodbye Party.
Thin Lips. I really like this band.
Visiting Jen on Saturday morning on our way out of town for, you guessed it, another wedding.
Near a rest stop outside of NYC, on our way to New Hampshire.
I saw these poofy things and had to get a photo because it felt like camouflage with my sweater and my hair.
At a gas station I spotted this weird little toy that talked about throwing light and making light pass through solid objects and it didn’t say on the package anywhere what it actually was or what it looked like and for some reason I had to know, so I bought it. It was $3. I’m glad I did because it provided a lot of entertainment later on in the night.
We got to New Hampshire just in time for the start of the wedding, but arrived to find that the whole thing was on a pretty relaxed schedule. We were nervous we were going to be late.
It was so beautiful out, and these dudes looked great.
He almost couldn’t get down. Luckily there was a ladder nearby, but he managed on his own without it.
Jack and Cella
Waiting for the wedding to begin
Ana and her father
Matt and Ana. Matt is one of Mikey’s friends from years ago. I had never met either of them but they were both really nice.
The wedding was short, sweet and sentimental. Very cute.
Cutting the cake
They had Mikey learn a Bruce Springsteen cover for the first dance. Also very cute.
There was just a little dancing and just a little drinking by some, my kind of wedding.
Jack tried to breakdance.
Then we broke up into two teams of 12-15 people and played a two hour game of capture the flag in the woods. I didn’t think I would get into it but games/sports make me competitive. What can ya do. It ended up being really fun and my legs were sore for a few days after. Following the game, which ended in a forfeit because neither team could get the flag, there was a little bonfire.
Everyone was tired so it didn’t last long but it was a nice way to end the night.
A lot of us crashed at Mikey’s friend Benny’s parent’s house, where we got to sleep in front of a wood burning stove, and woke up in the morning for breakfast.
We headed back to the wedding venue, which was at a summer camp in the town, and helped clean up before eating a big breakfast.
This little lady was one of the only small kids at the wedding but became fast friends with everyone. She was holding my hand for half of capture the flag, which made sneaking a little tricky.
A crucial pitstop on the way home. We gave Welch a ride home since he had a bus out of Philly to head back to DC.
and then it was right back to work, my first week with just Leo.
It was nice to get to spend one on one time with him and take him out to do some more fun things while I’m able.
One morning we were able to meet up with my friend Amanda, who is also a nanny. She is caring for two kids that Leo is friends with – so it makes playdates a no brainer.
Cute little buds on the last non-rainy day of the week.
