for our seventh anniversary we made the trek to seattle for an overnight of food, food, late night tv and some more food, oh and sleeping through the night and well into the morning. we shot this in a dark alley with a not so great camera after stuffing ourselves at lecosho. such a fun night! thanks to grandma for watching the small humans.

our annual pilgrimage to willow view farms to hang out with the goats, fill our bellies with apple slushies and our buckets with honeycrisps and galas.

our hamster darth vader butterfly curled up to go to sleep last night and then never woke. we had a little ceremony for him and then buried him in the garden. it was a sad day. we'll miss you little buddy.

cohen's first trip to school. it was only for one hour today, but he was READY! "you don't have to stay Mom, I know what I am doing cause I'm five years old now. Don't worry, I am going to be ok!" and he was.

my little man, he's growing up.

I got busy with Max and then found these two like this on the front walk. When I asked where they were headed I was told, "we're taking our camper (the wagon) and heading west, you know, towards the deserts of africa".
