Summer, summer, summer time!

They're back!

Now it's officially summer! We have been eating hood strawberries by the pint-full all weekend. Asa's been covered in red juice and I couldn't be happier.  

All it takes is a little bit of sun and a handful of ripe strawberries and I'm back in love with p-town. 

Hope you had a sweet and sunny weekend!

easter, at last

is it too late to post easter pics?


we spent easter weekend in seattle with the money's. saturday was beautiful, and it would have been a lovely drive, except that asa was not in the mood to be strapped in a car seat. i spent the better half of three hours singing at the top of my lungs.

i didn't realize that the exhausting part of being a parent would be three hours of itsty bitsy spider. just sayin' -  no one really tells you that.

we had a wonderful time once we were out of the car. my sister-in-law always throws a great party - and we finally got to meet mr. money's great nephew, nathan. i know, mr. money is a great uncle! crazy.

i'll admit to giving asa way more chocolate than i should of just to avoid anymore tantrums. have i mentioned that he's throwing tantrums now? (any advice would be greatly appreciated!)

on the way home asa passed out and i got to read this book - it was such a treat to have that much time with nothing to do but read! anyway i'm loving it so far- it's got me all excited for spring planting.

p.s. i'm bummed that i forgot the bunny ears i had asa wear his first easter. i had a vision, you know. oh well. he looked dang cute in those suspenders and grandpa sweater!

hello there

well, well, well. hello intranet.

is it mid april already? i took an unexpected break there - i guess i needed it.

we've been in a whirlwind of constant rain, ear infections, day care drama,  root canals and a never ending to-do list.

still, in the midst of it all, we've managed to explore finger painting, play dough and digging in the dirt! it's been nice to turn off the computer and just be.

the sun is starting to shine (literally, it's actually sunny in portland!) and life is good.

i hope to be posting pictures of all the fun stuff we've been doing real soon!

see you then!

this month...

blows kisses
waves bye
wiggles his wrists for 'all done'
slurps spaghetti
fakes a good sneeze

ah choo
uh oh
