22 hours old.

Yesterday, I got to meet Adelyn Ruby who was 22 hours old. I forgot how small and wrinkly and amazingly sweet newborns are! Here is a shot of her feet which I love. Congratulations to Megan and Brian and welcome to the world Adelyn!


Boise and The FBI...

Parker and I just got back from a weekend of hanging with the Cookies in Boise, ID. Parker and Logan had a ball together and I loved catching up with my old, dear friends. Meanwhile, Garett was in DC for work but got to take a side trip to check out the FBI headquarters and shoot guns at their range. I have never heard him talk about guns but he was pretty fired up about it! It’s a guy thing. Anyway, lamely, I forgot my camera this weekend so Amy sent me home with a few shots off her camera....Old friends, Parker and Logan chasing bubbles, soaking in some last minute vit D, P & L bath bound...


Fall NW style...

Fall is HERE and winter is right around the corner. Our past 2 weeks have been mellow which has been great for all of us. We have had dinner with friends, brunch with neighbor pals, hit Pike Place and gone for a few good walks. Here are some pictures from our trip to the park this afternoon. Love Seattle in the fall and the rain hasn’t gotten me down...yet. Gar is off on another work trip and Parker & I are going to Boise to hang with the Cookies. Cant wait to catch up with them!


Cali Time

Just back from a week in California! Parker and I spent some good time at my mom and don's house in Jenner –The Ranch if you will. I think Parker enjoyed having more room to roam (this townhouse is getting smaller as she gets bigger) and new things to explore. She picked apples off the tree (and subsequently says “apple” all.the.time), hung out with Yaya and played in her new kiddie pool and mom's kayak. It was a nice break for me. On Thursday, Karen and Liz brought their girls to the Ranch which was great. I kept saying: “can you believe we have daughters!” Weird.

Garett worked all week in Berkeley but we met up in Napa last weekend and left P with Yaya OVERNIGHT! She did great and so did I. She was in good hands and I was very happy to see her on Sunday!

Here is a pic of the girls, P playing with Yaya in the kayak and my step dad Don.
