Washington Park in Portland

After a busy weekend, the question, "What do you want to do tomorrow with your day off?" usually gets the answer, "Nothing, I hope!" But when Monday morning dawns and the whole day is invitingly empty, the question, "What should we do today?" gets us thinking of what fun outing we should go on next. Yeah, we're loving not being homeowners for the present! This video compiles pictures from this week's adventure, up on the bluff overlooking downtown Portland.

A Little Slice of Summer






Yes, it is Wednesday. Yes, this is wordless. With such cuteness, what more needs to be said?

A Bean in the Nose and Taco Coughing

Esther has a cold so when she came to me needing her nose blown I didn't think twice. I did think it was a little strange when she tried to look through the tissue to see what came out. "Where'd it go?" she was asking, but I didn't pay enough attention to understand her baby talk. A minute later she sneezed but didn't seem to need to blow her nose again. Then she came to me with a bean in her hand. "Dere is!" she exclaimed. "Oh, yes, I see the bean," I said. But when I noticed the snot on it everything suddenly made sense! I'm not sure when she stuck it in, but I sure am glad it came out without any problems!

In other news, Lucy demonstrated "taco coughing" by curling her tongue and coughing through it.
