When we picked out names for our girls, we intentionally chose names that weren't extremely popular (though our boy name for Maya happened to be the #1 most popular name that year, so we didn't stick to the rule at all costs apparently! :)). So, imagine my surprise when Maya went to Vacation Bible Camp this weekend and in her class of 10 or 12 kids, there were TWO other Maya's! And there was a third other Maya in the 4 year old class! According to the SSA list of baby names, Maya is somewhere around the 60th most popular girl name. If you look exclusively at the population of 2-3 year old children at Crossroads Community Chapel VBC in 2010, however, it's #1! :)
This weekend, Penny (Michael's mom) came up to visit and to watch the girls so Michael and I could go out for my birthday (thanks, Penny!!!). He surprised me with a fun geocache scavenger hunt and we had a great time. Then we all went out for dinner together, and after dinner went to the park to play "soccer" (which basically means the girls ran around a lot on the soccer field and occasionally chased the soccer balls we kicked :)).
Here are some pictures of our weekend! :)
A friend of ours has a plot at the community garden in Ravenna. She is out of town so Michael and the girlies and I went to water it for her. Check out this amazing sunflower she has growing!
Right next to the garden is a really nice playground, so of course we had to hang out there for a bit!
