Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Baby S's First Birthday

Where does the time go?  It makes my heart ache to know that a year with this precious baby has already passed.  She is sweet and happy and brings joy to all of us.
 She smashed and ate a cupcake, and opened presents while wearing a crown made by her big sisters.

Fun Friday in Seattle

Seattle and I had a rocky week... iphone stolen, (And miraculously recovered), car theft in our "crime free" neighborhood, and a very rough experience at the library left me more than a little disgruntled.  Today's really fun day helped smooth off some of those rough edges.  Gotta take the good with the bad, I guess.  

City center fountain, science center, and mariners game with my man.

We went camping at an awesome property owned by our church... Ensign Ranch.  They have canoes, horseback riding, and  a giant slip and slide (our girls still call it a slipping slide). We had lots of fun and baby s slept great and ate lots of dirt.

Lunch help

Here is a list if the things I served for lunch today...
Leftover homemade Mac and cheese
Yogurt with honey and banana
PB&J sandwich
Hummus toast with tomatoes, wait -no tomatoes, wait I changed my mind I do want tomatoes
Pretzels with hummus
Snow peas

This is crazy, right?  I am really strict during breakfast an dinner... The kids have to eat what I make and can't pick and choose from other things in the kitchen.  Since I am so strict the rest of the day, I made a decision a year or so ago to let them have more flexibility and choose what they want for lunch, but this is getting difficult!  By the end of lunch I was worn out and my kitchen was a disaster.  What do your moms of multiple children do for lunches?  Mine are too young to make their own... Or at least to be helpful making their own.  :)

Jubilee Farm

I love this place.  We're participating in a farm share.  Each week we come and pick up (and sometimes pick ourselves) our very fresh (picked that morning) produce.  During the summer we also participate on "farm school" once a week.  This week we learned about cows and got to helping them to a new pasture. We saw lots of baby cows... One born that very day!  
I can't say enough good things about this place.  My kids love visiting the animals and picking fruit and peas.  I love the delicious fresh veggies and the gorgeous surroundings.  It is definitely one of my favorite things about our new city.
