Here's what we've been up to this last week:
Paul found a project to fill up some of his free time: he's building us a bed. After 6 years of marriage we are finally going to have a bed! If it works...
I went to a Cheese Tasting Party hosted by a good friend. We each contributed a different type of cheese - it was very interesting, fun and delicious!
(And I cannot take credit for any of these beautiful photos - that would be the work of Sarah Palfreyman)
Alex spends lots of time dressing herself up...and her dolls
She even dresses up in Noah's clothes sometimes. I love the look on her face in this picture : )
Noah "made" himself a pet fish by removing the label from his water bottle and stuffing it inside. He kept telling me, in a pathetic voice, that he had to do this because he doesn't have a real pet. Well, water bottle pets work for me : )
It finally feels like spring so we've spent a lot of time playing outside, at the park, going on walks, bike rides, and jogs to the lake. We made our bi-annual trip to the outlets to get the kids some spring/summer clothes. Alex loves skirts and anything with pink or flowers on it. We let Noah pick out some of his own clothes and his favorite is his hammerhead shark shirt. I'm just happy to see him wearing something other than sweatpants everyday - the only kind of pants he would wear all winter.
Noah's been enjoying his favorite springtime snack...lemons
And Alex has been busy sporting her "movie star" sunglasses
Our car was stolen. Right out of our front yard. Nothing left but some shattered glass in the street. This was the second attempt on our car while we've lived here, and unfortunately this time it was successful. It would have been successful the first time too, if a neighbor hadn't been up to see what was happening and call the cops. And we only had a few more weeks to go in this city...
I was caught speeding by a camera and got a ticket in the mail. Hello, I was trying to get kids to preschool on time!?!
Paul was on the radio. He called into NPR's "The Diane Rehm Show" to talk about national single-payer healthcare.
