Another HonFest

At this point, Hannah has been to more HonFests than I can remember (though I suppose it can't have been more than four). This was Jacob's first, but I neglected to get any commemorative shots of him in cat-eye glasses and a beehive. I neglected to get any shots at all...I'm definitely slacking on my mamarazzi tendencies with this second kid, but it isn't for lack of adoration; it's for lack of hands! The game has changed from two-on-one to two-on-two, and since I'm the one who always has the baby, it's kind of hard to take his picture.

In spite of not having bothered to carried my camera with us, we still managed to end up with some pictures of Hannah partying it up. The first few are from Bill Adams, a local photojournalist who was following around Strawberry, the bully dog who dressed for the occasion to show people how loveable and safe these breeds actually are. (I believe this particular effort was in support of Bella's Bully Buddies.) Hannah was convinced. She snuggled right up, and when Bill started taking pictures, she turned up the charm.

We took a brief break for sustenance and a wardrobe change and then Eric and Hannah walked back down to meet up with the Murph's. Erin shared these goofy shots of the kids.

She also got a shot of Hannah snuggling with the Orioles mascot, but when I try to post that one, it comes up super stretched out and weird looking...

Now that Eric has official orders to stay put in this area, we'll most likely try to find a place with a yard in the next year or so, which might have made this our last HonFest (at least, the last one that we can walk back and forth to). If that's the case, Hannah's first few years of life will prove vastly different from Jacob's. He'll never remember living in this quirky, crazy neighborhood. I hope Hannah will.
