Family skateboarding at the park near our house. All four of us skating and going down the big hills. A sunny day in winter is certainly a reason to spend the whole day outside playing.

An unexpected snow day. My son ran into our room first thing in the morning exclaiming that it had snowed overnight! It was so exciting. We built tiny snow people in the yard, and caught snowflakes on our tongues. Collected many icicles. We waited for the snow to stick and pile up and then headed to the park to go sledding. We ran into friends and had so much fun going down the big hill, over and over. Snowy walks on the sled to fetch groceries for supper. The next day our whole family (all four of us!) piled on the sled and went down the huge hill to get more groceries. It was very hilarious.

Playing on Whidbey island, sand and beach forts. Ferry rides and cob houses. Wood stoves and candles, big pots of food and old friends. Staying in a cob house, piled in a little room together. Searching for yeti in the woods, making figures out of clay. A wonderful winter weekend trip up north. 

I stopped the 52 project in the summer last year (after completing the whole year in 2014), but I love the incentive it gives me to get my camera out weekly and document my children's growth. So here it goes for 2016, hoping to finish the year this time!

this summer



This summer has been lovely and simple. Not quite so many adventures out of town as usual, although I think we still have time to pack a couple more in before school starts. Lots of time exploring and enjoying this awesome city of ours. Swim lessons almost everyday all summer and lots of family swim times every week. A couple visits to the ocean. A camping trip with friends, with wild children running between campsites. So many trips to the library and parks. Some river swims. Visits from grandparents.

We have felt very busy but in a really fun way- there are just so many activities for kiddos in Portland and I am appreciating all the options we have. I can't believe summer is almost over. There are school supplies to restock and uniforms to purchase. Our littlest is about to start at the same beloved co-op preschool her brother went to, and she has already gotten her new lunchbox which she is very excited about. We have one week left of summer and are planning to fill it with all our favorite summer things.

Summer vacation is finally here! Making masks, being superheroes.

Our annual tradition of picking organic cherries in the columbia river gorge. So delicious!
