A little one year old in my ward broker her leg over the weekend and I made her this elephant.  #elephantforwilma #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever

Blessing day

#arlingtonwardfriendsareforever #arlingtonwardbabiesarethebest #2under2


Soren wouldn't let me take a photo of his missing tooth but I snuck a shot of his whiteboard.  Read it.  He's 4.  And he's one of my favorites in my ward.  He always says hello to me.  #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever #wearemormon #ldschurch

EP treat of the month

I'm selling baked goods!  It will be a different thing each month.  August is Blueberry Cake for $20.  Let me know if you're interested or if you need a review but trust me, it's good.  Local orders only.  #EPtreatofthemonth

My favorite fish tacos.  #tenoch #eatinginmycar #again

Emily Raymond the runner

I snuck some photos of Emily Raymond's laundry room doors.  She runs marathons and she wins marathons.  And she is an all around awesome person.  I'm always bragging about her and I'm one of her biggest fans.

Aquarium with Phoebe

Remember the letter Phoebe wrote me inviting me to go to the Aquarium with her with free tickets she won?  Today was the day.  We took the subway into the city and had a great time.  She didn't want to leave until she touched a stingray.  OK then.  #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever #funwithphoebe

More new friends

I sat by this family on the T and we got chatting and they live in Mesa and are Mormon!  And he's from St. Johns, Arizona and knows my friends the Pattersons who are from there.  It's a small SMALL ep world!  #makenewfriends #wearemormon

New friends

Any friends of cousin @laurajopenshaw are friends of mine.  It was fun meeting and having lunch with the Stringhams and showing them a bit of MIT.
