Capturing some notes and snapshots of things I want to remember forever, from these past few spring months.
…the weekend we played city kids.
While Joe was in Hawaii without me (yes, JOE WENT TO HAWAII WITHOUT ME…#jerk) over Memorial Day weekend, the girls and I headed down to Seattle to spend the weekend with Beth and family. We hit up the Woodland Park Zoo Saturday then took the light rail from her house to the M’s game Sunday. It was a blast and gave me a little of glimpse of city life with littles…which I think I would adjust to just fine.
Lyla was on a mission to find the snails at the zoo.
…camping at Rasar State Park.
Can one call it camping if one does not actually sleep in a tent? I think yes. We eased into our first camping experience with the girls by renting a cabin at Rasar in June. This place rocked. The park is beautiful, with lots to do for kiddos, including two playgrounds, a sandy beach at the river and lots of empty paved parking areas for scooter-ing. I’d love to do this again during the fall. They also have some pretty amazing group camping areas. (<– That’s a hint, friends. Wanna go?)
Love this wild child photo of her.
Records on the ceiling of the Birdseye Brewery.
…the opening of Star Park. Feeling lucky that this spot is walking distance from our house.
…the way my little garden looks in May. So much green.
…this little girl. Almost always naked; doesn’t ever miss an opportunity to get messy.
That’s sidewalk chalk mixed with water. First she painted the driveway, then she painted herself.
…this big girl. Continuing to help me grow as a parent and a person.
…that school’s out for summer feeling.
