Superman=Superfun August 23, 2008

Posted by mandsrix in Baltimore Ricks, DC Ricks.

About two weeks ago we went to see Superman at Screen on the Green with Robert and Nancy. (For those of you who don’t know, Screen on the Green is an a free outdoor movie venue hosted by HBO. The one we went to was on the mall in DC.) I had never actually seen the original Superman in its entirety and was delighted with its corny lines, “special” effects and the fact that it stood for “truth, justice and the American way”. We had a lovely picnic outside and savored our last outing with Robert and Nancy before they left for Utah. We are very sad to see them go. We’ve been spoiled to have family so close- especially hip, savvy, fun family like Robert and Nancy. I’ve included several pictures from our evening out as well as some random pics of Gabe and Elijah playing with their hats and sunglasses. I can’t remember why they didn’t have clothes on in this particular instance but I feel compelled to share with you one of the joys of having twins: the poop fight. Yes, one morning I discovered that putting them to bed in nothing but diapers, because it was so hot, was a big mistake. Elijah had created a delightful substance which both he and Gabe managed to get their hands in and smear all over each other, blankets, toys, etc. Upon seeing the horrific, smelly mess I came nearer, perhaps, than ever before to saying a naughty word. Needless to say, they both received baths and I did several loads of laundry that day. I have recovered from the incident and have decided to keep them despite this manufacturer’s defect.

Gabe was scared by all the loud noises- lucky Uncle Robert was there to protect him.

We had a great view of the Capitol lit up for the night.

Despite having all the symptoms of “teething” for several months, our boys are still the toothless wonders.

“Give me that hat…” Gabe has gotten very grabby lately. He also seems to have a double standard. If he takes Elijah’s things, that’s fine but if Elijah takes his things he throws a temper tantrum. Marc said he had a hard time sharing when he was little too… maybe it’s genetic.

I love your family picture–way to go, Cougars! The boys are adorable. I wish we could be closer. Mom

I love the pictures. I would have to agree with mom that the family picture is great. Wow, Sarah, I am glad that you were able to handle whole pooh fight episode. It would have taken me a lot to get over that. Yuck! The boys are super cute. I am not quite sure what it is, but babies in nothing but diapers is just adorable.
