We met Erin, Carla, and Carla's 12-week-old son (Charlie) at the arboretum. Erin had read my blog posts about practically living at the arboretum, and Carla is relatively new to the area, so they were curious to visit the arboretum for the first time. Sonia and I took them to a special place-- the first spot that she and I ever picnicked together (with the Murrays, of course). Sonia took it upon herself to be a clown and walk around with one foot in a purse and one foot in her camera case (custom-made for her by Auntie Niki out of Richard Scarry's Busytown fabric!!).
Charlie is a handsome little dude! He has a hilarious hairdo at the moment and looks a bit cranky in this picture (but the crankiness is due to my bad photography timing because he was completely adorable and pleasant for the entire outing!).
Erins!!!!!!!!!!! We used to call each other "Erin 1" and "Erin 2". I was #1 because I was older, of course.
Sonia did her fair share of acting like a total and complete wackadoodle. Here she is singing some made-up songs at Zach's tree.
Carla and Charlie seemed to like the arboretum a lot, and I hope they will be frequent visitors in the future!
