{this moment}

A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.  Inspired by soulemama at http://www.soulemama.com

Favorite Summer Memories

Love experiencing art this way…

Artprize 2011

1582 pieces of art – all over downtown

Multiple trips

So much fun to meet the artists, see them create,

and talk with them about their art.

Avy with the winner.

Bring on Summer!

Good Friday

We awoke this morning to Lego crosses all over the house.

Put up after we had all gone to bed.

It’s Friday…but Sunday’s a Comin’!

Surprise Party by Asher

Jonathon is one of my best friends.  He lives next door to us.  His birthday was during the time that we would be in Africa.  I wanted to do something for him.  So what do I do?  I throw a surprise party!  And boy was he surprised! One of the hardest things about getting old is blowing out your birthday candles.  We had cake and ice cream, watched his home video from his 1st birthday, and sent him on a scavenger hunt for his present.

I am not positive, but I am pretty sure he liked it.


It was hot and sunny and the wisteria was blooming…

There were mojitos for the mamas,

who kicked back on the patio and watched the kids play.

There was the Children’s Museum, swimming, Lego playing, freshly made bread every day (thanks Jeff!), two train rides, and hiking in the woods.

Asher and Avy adore being the “big” cousins.

Even if they’re worn out by the end of the day.

This kid, I just want to kiss his cheeks!

And I’m adding this to my list of places I might want to live.
