Tara and Melissa

These two girls

They are incredible. The Cooksons, Cafe Rio and summertime... I can't imagine a better scenario! They turn 20 today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TWINS!

I wish we could celebrate by going to Chili's. Oh wait, we do that for every birthday. Maybe it's good to switch it up and be on opposite sides of the country this year. LOVE YOU GIRLS!

Life right now =

I have become a blog-failure. Never fear, I am still alive and well! Lots of summer fun.


  • Ruth had her baby!
  • biking with Josh
  • swimming
  • lemonade stands on really hot days (record breaking heat in DC this summer)
  • visiting with Grandma and Grandpa
On this particular day, Grandma was wearing a dish towel so she wouldn't spill any food. Grandpa accidentally dyed his hair pink. They are the best.
