Catching Up

I will indulge myself in writing a blog about Thanksgiving, but not yet, because we haven't downloaded pictures. We did have amazing moment last weekend though at Richmond Beach. We headed over to the beach thinking we would be there in the rain and wind, but lo and behold, as we were driving into the driveway, out came the sun and it was warm-ish and we got to see the Olympics across the water and the sun set slowly behind them. So beautiful - here are some pictures.

A moment

This morning I had a moment to type a bit, but then promptly accidentally deleted all I'd written. Ah, yes, a perfect way to start the week.... But I recovered by shutting off the computer and taking the kids for a walk in the rain. We spent a great deal of the "walk" standing in puddles or small streams of water and watching the water twirl around our rain boots.

Life has been full of the usual domestic scenes. One blessed day last week, Veteran's Day, Rob had off work and we stole a small walk in the woods at St. Edward Park with our friends. Here are a few pictures from the walk. I hope you enjoy your week, whatever it may bring...

We had a great Halloween, celebrated with another family over tacos. This is our annual gathering with a family we met in Penny Simpkin's childbirth class when we were each pregnant with our first children. Four children (between us)and many fun adventures later here we all are, drinking wine, eating pulled pork and watching our little ones get dressed up and super sugared up. Other scenes of the season are portrayed.

Kicking It In Mazama

We got to spend last weekend with a lovely family of four at their vacation place in Mazama. Kids and grown-ups were muy simpatico... It was super fun all the way around, from chatting in the kitchen while the children played to ambling up a nearby mountainside to stargazing through a mighty powerful telescope on a cold, clear night. Turns out you can live in a place for 10 or 40 years and still not have visited some of its most beautiful nooks and crannies...
