Sorry that we have been MIA-we've been out of town since our last blog post and we won't be coming home until Monday.
We had a great time in East Hampton visiting Baba...Maya spent a lot of time at the beach and walking the dogs--her new favorite thing is to walk Kona on an extendable leash--"Walk! Walk!". She also got to experience having all of her grandparents in one place-Papou (or Patou, as she calls him) and Wow came to visit in East Hampton for a few days..on Monday we celebrated Peter's birthday all together.
Coming home from East Hampton was NOT fun at all. We rolled out of Baba's house at 9:35 am and rolled into our driveway in Arlington at 9:35pm. The traffic was excruciating and we had to stop three times for meals/breaks. Maya was great though..she only had one or two breakdowns, which was fewer than me ;)
The next day we flew out to Denver. That trip was significantly less eventful-Maya even slept 1.5 hours on the flight, so it went by pretty quickly (well, as quickly as a 3.5 hour flight with a nearly 2 year old can go). We got to hang out on Sunday-we went up to Boulder for a few hours, where Maya had a great time on the Pearl Street Mall.
Yesterday the convention started and Peter has been working hard! He went to meet his boss at 9:30 and didn't come home for the night until 1:30--though he did get a short break for dinner. He keeps asking if Maya and me would like to go see Hilary or Biden speak, but I think we'll save up Maya's patience for Thursday, when we get to see Obama at Mile High.
Sorry I don't have any pictures to post, but hopefully in a day or two...
