and the word is out! we will be adding another babe to the family in early summer... hurray! the big sister & big brother are thrilled, and mommy is happy to be past the first trimester woes... alright, folks! here comes wild!!
while mommy & daddy went gallavanting off to boston for the national asla conference (aka, working get-away), grandma & grampa happily filled in to take care of the kiddos on the homefront. they managed to have an adventure each day, to cbs, ecfe, the playground, and the ever-entertaining backyard (thanks for raking our leaves!!), as well as plenty of relaxed playtime & read-time. of course there was much bird-watching & playing with the bird app on grandma's phone, as well. luckily, mommy got to enjoy a few days with them, too, and we all went exploring in chester park. the hike along the waterfalls was breathtaking! thanks so much, mom & dad, for taking time to be with our family & care for us. we appreciate you!

we got a sneak peek into daddy's new lab today! it's a brand new lab space for the environmental engineering work of umd... one side for teaching & the other for research. can you tell which space is in use already? he & his research group sure made quick work of moving in there! we know it's been a long wait & a lot of work getting here... we're so excited for you, daddy. a great addition to your department & to umd!
