What fun...another Toy Voyager arrived today! I didn't see her at the post office...I think we were coming from different directions! But I got to help open the package...

Washington DC, United States - 7th June 2008

By: wmphimu

What an amazing morning we had! Today was the National Race for the Cure, a huge 5K race to raise money for breast cancer research. There were 50,000 people (and four toy voyagers) that walked and ran in the race today! (and Mara says that there are usually more, but the crazy heat kept a lot of people at home) First, we had to get ready. I skipped the sunblock, but Plaid Moose helped me to pin my race number on...

Then it was time for the race. It was hard to take pictures because of how many people were there and the weather (it was really hot, and the morning started really foggy), but here I am on the race course...

The women in pink t-shirts are cancer survivors! And here I am at the finish line! (the building in the background is the one of the Smithsonian museums - The National Museum of the American Indian)
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/raceflsn.jpg
We were really proud of our race - here we all are on a bench afterwards...
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/raceg1.jpg
...and here we are catching a moment of shade under a plant near the Smithsonian Castle!

Of course, before we got back in the car, I stopped for a picture in front of the Smithsonian Castle!

Fairfax, Virginia, United States - 11th June 2008

By: wmphimu

We had a fun day today! When Mara got home from work she told us that a package arrived! First, we tore off the tape...
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/101_1443.jpg
And then out popped Muumipeikko!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/101_1444.jpg
But there was still noises in the traveling case...
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/101_1445.jpg
It's Mausi! But there was one more surprise...
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/101_1446.jpg
HitchaRideMo! Here we all are -
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/101_1447.jpg
We told them all how hot it has been here in Virginia - over 100 degrees each day - so we have been keeping cool inside in the air conditioning. But it is finally starting to cool off a bit, so we will go on an outing with everyone soon!

Fairfax, Virginia, United States - 16th June 2008

I had a fun day yesterday! It was Father's Day, so we went to Mara's parents' house to celebrate. First, I helped her dad with the grill (can you see me? It was very sunny...)...
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/grill2.jpg
Then, I relaxed under the shade of the umbrella...
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/umbrella.jpg
While we were waiting for lunch to cook, we all played hide-and-go-seek in her parents' yard. Can you find me in my hiding place?
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/plant1.jpg
And here we are afterwards relaxing on the front porch!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/porch.jpg
After we celebrated Fathers Day, we went with Mara and her husband to play softball. They couldn't take pictures during the game (since they were playing!), but here I am at the field!

Chantilly, Virginia, United States - 22nd June 2008

By: wmphimu

I had such a fun weekend! I hopped into Mara's backpack with the other toy voyagers and we all went to a scrapbooking convention! Here I am at the entrance...
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/sign3-1.jpg
We started with some shopping. Here I am with Mausi looking around at all the booths to shop at!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/show3.jpg
Then it was time to take some classes. We looked at the class schedule and decided which ones we wanted to take.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/book2.jpg
Here I am making a summer album:

And here I am with a flower album I made:
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/classsn.jpg
What a fun weekend! :)

We had a busy weekend here! Even though it was really hot, we all went to the Nationals-Orioles game! Here I am in our seats, watching the baseball game:
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/stsn.jpg
And here I am in front of the scoreboard, which Mara said has one of the biggest HD screens in any stadium!

at the post office in VA, United States - 4th July 2008

By: wmphimu

Even though I was ad to say goodbye to my friends, I left this week for a new adventure in England. Before I left, we had a big group hug to say goodbye.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f246/wmphimu/101_1520.jpg
Then it was time to climb into my luggage. But look who climbed in too - HitchARideMo! Steve & Helly are going to be so surprised when the open the suitcase and find both of us! :)

Hurrah, we've arrived safely. Helly's been busy taking us places but there may be a delay in writing up about where we've been as she's busy preparing for her first teddy bear fair this Sunday.

By: Steve & Helly

Off to the Swindon Association of Snails 2Cv monthly meeting . . . at a pub, where else!

Trouble is, it's raining and I can't see out of the window, glad Steve can!

As we drove along I heard a very load noise, it sounded like it was coming to get us . . . what can it be? . . . it's very frightening. . . .


Oh, it's OK, it's a Hercules flying into Lyneham. These planes fly over all the time.

Wittenham Clumps, England - 14th July 2008

By: Steve & Helly

Here I am in the front of a 2Cv ith my friends Pierre Bear and Hitcharidemo. The dashboard of the car is just the right size for us.

I went on a tour of South Oxfordshire with two other 2CVs, it was really good fun.

First I climbed to the top of Wittenham Clumps, near Wallingford. It was a steep climb but worth it for the fantastic view from the top.

Weymouth, England - 15th July 2008

By: Steve & Helly

Next day I set off in the 2CV again. This time to the South Coast for fish and chips.

The first stop was at Upwey, near Weymouth. I walked around the lovely Wishing Well gardens before having a cup of tea.

Can you see the small hedge which looks like a strange creature?

I especially liked the leaping salmon, I felt quite at home by the water.

Here I am with HitchARideMo at Silbury Hill. The largest man made hill in the world. No one knows why it's here although they have some theories!

Once a year, in July, there's a huge motorcycle meeting in Calne. There must have been hundreds of bikes here.

Then Helly met a policeman and he let HitchARideMo and I climb on his bike. Wow, it looked very fast. Hitch' was a little bit scared it might take off! Next to the bike was a Harley Davidson police bike - Wow!
