June was, in short, insanely busy. First, Tina and I ran in the Race for the Cure and raised money for a good cause. And then we ate waffles.
Then the next day Mel and Ray arrived from Seattle and hung out until we went to Bonnaroo.
Photos of Mel, Ray, and Fred stolen from Kevin’s wonderful Flickr. Kevin, Jill, and Fred joined us for a fun brunch and a lot of catching up. The next day Shane went to Michigan, returning the day after that so that we could go to Bonnaroo:
We saw some science bears play video games.
and connected with a bunch of Shane’s college friends!
After getting home and trying to beat summer colds, I flew to Illinois for my sister’s bridal shower:
I also got to be home for Father’s Day, which was especially excellent since I thought it was the previous weekend! We made brunch for Pop since everyone was home.
No sooner did I return, then the next wave of visitors arrived. Dan stayed with us for a few days while wooing Basil:
We went to the first Fort Reno of the season with a bunch of friendos:
Linda and Jeremiah came to visit for a week from Colorado, which was very excellent. We went to a baseball game and yelled at the Red Sox:
The last day our friends were here, we got the news that we’ve already posted about, which is pretty awesome! Also Richard and Piotr were in town and we had dinner with them, but I forgot to take pictures. And then we took two days of vacation for a staycation, during which we wore funny glasses and went to Baltimore. More on that later!
