I've been a little behind in posting lately...for no good reason other than lack of motivation. But I just downloaded some pictures from the last few weeks, so here's a look at what we've been up to:
I had to take a shot of this because this is the wonder that is Portland. I mean, what is it? If I get myself to Ash St. on January 20th will I get to see a whale be born? Unfortunately I didn't get to Ash St., so now I'm just left wondering.
Jackson's been very artsy lately. Making sock puppets, painting, coloring, cutting...etc.
We've had some gorgeous days sprinkled about the rainy ones. Last Wednesday was one of those - about 55 degrees and the warm sun all day long. After I dropped Jackson off at preschool I went home, packed some snacks, a blanket, and my knitting, and hiked up Mt. Tabor. I sat in the sun and soaked in the vitamin D for hours. It was heavenly!
We bought a pass to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) and have been there three times in the last three weeks. They have an exhibit with real bones from a T-Rex, Samson.
I made a 'girl version' of the little boy balloon shirt.
Some fellow former Michiganders (Katie Breen Johnson and Andy + Andrea Chamberlin) came down for the weekend. We girls went out for a pre-baby night on the town. We ate lots of good food, and overdosed on chocolate, but ah...always worth it.
Had another sunny day the next day so we had a picnic at Mt. Tabor We wanted to invite Little Debbie (we reminisced our childhoods of swiss cake rolls and nutty bars) but had to settle for Hostess. Better than nothin' I guess.
Jackson had an AMAZING catch that I happened to capture at just the right time
And once again, yesterday we had such a gorgeous day that Jackson and I ate lunch at the top of Rocky Butte. If you look closely you can see Mt. Hood in there, but the streaky clouds make it a little tough to see.
So many picnics in January. I could get used to that!
