The Samuel Chase Reality Tour

Seinfeld reference.  For those who got it, I hug you.

Friday morning we dropped off Sammy Chase with my SIL.  He gave me the biggest pout lip in the history of pout lips and proceeded to cry for his bottle and his kisses.  It was so cute.  We left quickly.

Hour or so later we were walking around the streets of Annapolis celebrating our anniversary and some baby freedom on a drop dead gorgeous day!  It was a wonderful day.  An amazingly sunny day that wasn't too hot, yet you could feel the sun soaking into your bones.  Can you tell I was happy?

We chose to spend our day in Annapolis for obvious reasons.  It's where we got engaged, it's a coastal town we love dearly, and it's full of the awesome.  It's also where Samuel Chase, the man my husband named our son after, lived and worked.  He was a lawyer, a Supreme Court Judge, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and had the nickname "Old Bacon Face".  He had me convinced our son should carry his name after the "Old Bacon Face" comment.  How can you go wrong with that?
That's right, Old Bacon Face

We did a lot of walking, a lot of talking, and had so much fun!  Dinner at an Irish pub.  Ice cream by the docks.  Only slightly embarrassing Morgan when commenting on the Paca house tour that I would want a man servant with big hands.  Best anniversary ever.  Maybe next year Sammy Chase can come with us.  Maybe.

Update:  Guess who decided to roll over today without help.  Yup.  Stink pot has gained the tiniest bit of independence as of today.  Now he just has to figure out that scooting thing and he can conquer the living room.
