Freshly Squeezed. K that's a sick mental picture...
I finally snapped a shot of Scarlet's fairy land that we relocated to under the oak tree today.
Jacob and Scarlet slaved away picking this bowl full of saskatoons.
Cutest smile ever!
Scarlet finally got to have her sleepover with Jane. Jane went all out- invitations, an itinerary, a list of what Scarlet should bring, snacks, you name it.
K this was awesome. I blogged a while back about writing letters to famous people. Charlie got a generic, boring letter back from JK Rowling stating she can't possibly write all her fans back. But Jane got a big, glossy autographed picture back from Yo-yo Ma. In her letter she asked him what the secret is to being an amazing cellist and he answered her question, How cool is that!! He said,
"Enjoy it. That's the secret."
Borax crystals form over night. Instant enjoyment.
Jane and Scarlet painted rocks to mark my special weeds I'm growing in the yard.
Giant slip'n slide with friends. And a good 'ol roast after :)
The last biscuit has arrived. Biscuit #6 making us a family of eight with 3 girls and 3 boys.
Scariest moment of my life.
The boys have it so easy!
The end! Around 9 pm sometime.
Oh how I love not being pregnant ;)
The proud ride to the room.
Tim left to get food and came back with a large pizza, giant salad, fruit bowl, flowers, trail mix, chocolates and my favorite Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia. We talked a lot about names and couldn't choose between Adelaide, Eleanor, Ivy and Hazel but finally went with Hazel.
Lindsay arrived and we had a delightful visit around midnight.
Classic first bath picture.
Amy and her fam came the following morning. It was such a treat to see them.
Her kids are AMAZINGLY cute.
Amy's mom made the lovely teal blanky.
This is what "the blue whale" looks like now- packed with 3 on each row!
