I love this time of year, when we get this golden light in the evenings through the forest.  When I went up to take photos I was told to get out of their forest… Waiting for our meal to be ready from the food truck. Sunset It occured to me while editing these photos that […]

I’m doing the 100 day project on instagram.  Daily painting is good family fun I told Sunny not to put the paintbrush in her mouth anymore.  So she didn’t. Our Strong Start group got to tour the fire hall this week.  Ria was very excited and got to ride in the fire truck and use […]

On Sunday after supper we were all tired, but I totally bribed my children with chocolate to be nice in photos for me.  And I’m not even a little bit ashamed because a) it worked and b) the yard only looks like this for one week out of the entire year, and they were forecasting […]

Bubble season has returned! Haircut!  My bangs are finally grown out. Egghunt 1/3 with our church friends. I love this time of year when spring flowers are starting. Hanging out in the Safeway Starbucks to meet someone and sell off some baby items.

My maternal grandmother was the queen of pastry.  Her pies were a thing of beauty and the crust always turned out perfectly.  My mother swears by this same recipe.  I grew up with amazing pie crusts and was deeply disappointed by the first store bought pie I tasted.  I still can’t bring myself to buy […]
