Chilly morning

We spent a great weekend babysitting Josie, and are now going down to Mountain Lodge Farm for an event. We barely had time to put our bags down at home, but I wanted to take a moment to capture a little of the frigid magic happening in our front yard. I love our new home.

Bad bloggers

Oh dear. We’ve neglected our duties as raconteurs of our lives in the Pacific Northwest. So…updates: – I have water logged and ruined two iPhones in the last month. C says I either get a hardcore case or I’m back to a flip phone. – In Oct we went to West Lafayette, IN to watch … Continue reading

Family visit!

Guess who came to visit! We had such an awesome long weekend with Nathan, Lizzie, Kendra, Mitch and Liz.

Seattle was so fun!

We had an awesome time in Seattle. Thank you to Alicia and Brian for the hospitality. And the washer/dryer. Josie has really grown since we saw her at Christmas. She’s so chatty! We went to Gas Works Park, Fremont Brewing Co, Chuck’s Hop Stop and Top Pot! We ‘helped’ Brian with his brewing – we’ll … Continue reading
