We hippied it up Friday night at the Arts Fest, where we watched Ballet West, ate delicious Thai food , and tarried in the fabulous fountains. It was a great reminder that with art, anything goes! I can use my new favorite shade of OPI pink nail polish, some paints, and a piece of paper to express my passion for my freshly planted Petunias. Sure a few elements and principles help with art’s aesthetics, but just the process of creating is exhilarating. Hopefully, I will be inspired and be able to post a product of my inner Picasso sometime soon.

Great Grandpa Down tells a story about how he grew up picking watermelons in Texas. Under the starry summer skies, he and his friends would sneak out to the fields, crack open the biggest melon, and rip out the center. Then they would sink their teeth into this sweetest, seedless part of the fruit. Which probably explains your passion for the pink produce… it’s pretty much in your roots…
I can’t believe you’re 8 months old. While I write this you are cuddled up to me with your first official fever. It breaks my heart to see you not your smiling, crawling, inquisitive self… So I will take this short moment of silence to jot down a list of loves on this life log of mine…
We love that your daddy’s Blackberry and car keys bring out your biggest grin. We love that you sleep best when your forehead is touching ours. We love that your eyes aren’t really a color but more of a metallic. We love that you have a grin as big as the Grand Canyon. We love your willpower to start walking even though you've barely mastered the crawl.
Baby James, If life were a watermelon, you’d be the center, the heart, the yummiest part... We are so lucky to be your parents and we love you.

I spoke too soon saying it was suddenly summer. Spring weather decided to come back for a weekend retreat. We obliged by breaking out our blankets, beanies, and umbrellas so we could enjoy the Seattle-esque skies.
Cotton candy clouds, my camera, and a cuddly baby = me being completely content :)
P.S...These pictures make me want to cry… That’s just how in love I am with this little guy!

It's suddenly summer!.. So we celebrated with…
- a jog in the canyon with my good pal, Abbie.
-a dip in the pool, eating popsicles with my peeps.
-a nap with a soggy baby on the porch swing.
-hanging with my hubby while he got ready for high adventure.
Everything is better with a baby but ‘specially summertime... the pansies are prettier, strawberries more succulent, and the sunsets more spectacular!
Thanks Aunt Cathy for the fabulous day in your pool ... and thanks to my honey pie for working so hard so I can be with our baby… I will be making you lots of yummy dinners as a special thanks!
