Wednesday my sister arrived to spend part of her vacation with us. Its always nice to see her and we haven't been home in a while, so it had been too long since we'd seen her last. Unfortunately, it took Stretchy a while to warm up to her, but soon she had a new favorite play-mate (and I got to take some breaks to finish recovering!) My mom came too since she's always looking for excuses to come see her favorite person... and her daughter...
We did some shopping and ran some errands.

It was really nice to see my sister and have company for a while.
They left Friday after Stretchy's first swimming lesson and we had a quiet evening.
Saturday we went up to Lake George again- this time to the Recreation Center where we took a hike in the woods, had a picnic with some friends we met in Germany and their kids. Bob and the other dad took their bikes out on the trails there while the other mom and I watched the kids on the playground. Unfortunately, a six-month old can't really play on the playground, but she seemed to have a good time sitting on the picnic table and watching.

Sunday we went to a baby shower and had a BBQ with one of our friends who just moved back from Belgium and will be starting work with Bob soon.

I have to say, after more than a week of doing nothing, we definitely made up for it with everything we did last week! Today we'll take it easy and enjoy the nice weather!
Here's some cute pictures of Stretchy hanging out on the couch this morning:
