Summer 2009

Our summer was absolutely wonderful! The weather was questionable for a lot of it, but it didn't really affect us, since staying on the cool side actually worked well for us. We didn't get to Orange pool as much as we had liked to, but we did manage to go a few times. Sahil and Samira also took swim classes at the Westerville Community Center on Saturdays, so we did in plenty of pool time there. Some days they loved the class, some days they whined through a lot of it. The same held true for me too....

Every summer weekend was happily packed with parties, BBQs, long walks, parks, wine tastings, playing in the fountains at Easton, visiting the zoo, Crew games, happy hours, dinners with friends, making new friends, farmers markets, and lots of other fun stuff! All ordinary things, yet so special to me....

For the monkeys second Fourth of July and second Red White and Boom, we once again went to the Mt Carmel Foundation's RW&B party on the rooftop of Mount Carmel West. Mom & Dad and Mama didn't join us this time, but I think the monkeys still had a great time. We had a great dinner, drinks, dancing, and a perfect seat to the best fireworks show in the land! Samira's poopy diaper also got us into the nice restrooms vs the Porta-Johns. Mommy thanks you baby girl! :)

We took our "summer vacation" trip in September actually. We went to Ft Myers beach for 5 nights, and it was wonderful! Very relaxing! The monkeys had a great time, and it was so nice to spend so much time with them and not have to worry about everyday things like cleaning, bills, etc.

We also had many visits from friends and family! The monkeys met their cousin Shreya from Michigan and their cousin Nikhil from SF for the first time. Can't wait to meet up again!

All in all, it was the best summer ever! But it always is.... It made me feel so blessed to have such happiness and love in my life, thanks to my dear monkeys, Chetan and family and friends. Yes, I would now like some wine with that cheese :)
