Great rainy day at the beach yesterday! Jumped in the waves, played in the sand, ate fish & chips, hung out in the RV, played on the play structure, ate dinner at the club house potluck!, watched Scooby Doo in the RV, and more. Thanks Gramma Trudy, Stinker, and Lacey Dog!


Yes, that’s right, he put his sippy cup of milk into Gramma Trudy’s coozy. It says “I’m not in charge, I just know what you should be doing”. Way to adapt to your surroundings buddy :)

B and I picked up a cat bed for Dwight and Pepito today (here you go you Deezy we got you new bed!). Ben and his little ‘baby kitty’ are really enjoying it though, not sure if the real cats will get a chance to use it. B really wants to pretend like he’s also a baby kitty, and I’m the mama kitty :)


Ocean! Beautiful time jumping in the waves and playing in the sand between rain showers.

Ben was very busy playing with every toy he could find tonight, drums to baby doll to trains to dress up stuff to tool kit and more. At one point he was wearing his pretend tool belt, then ripped it off and replaced it with a heart necklace and bracelet. ‘I girl, I girl…fin me like mommy! Fin! Fin!’. I had no idea what he was talking about, but after a bit of explaining he started spinning in a circle, like a princess, like a mommy. So I spun him in circles and he was so happy :)

Pumpkin Patch, Pumpkin train, Al’s Garden Center planting fun, real Mexican food, we had an all-around fabulous slumber party weekend with GaGa! Thank you so much, GaGa…we can’t wait to do it again! Xo


Cheering on the marathon runners…woo hoo! Only in Portland would there be belly dancers providing street side entertainment :)


Ruh-roh! Look who found the most perfect costume ever :) He is so stoked, totally in love with his tail.


I was shocked and so proud to see B interacting with the play yesterday…so cool! True sign of a well done children’s production.


Ben and Calvin- Theater dudes!
