After a SNOMOMS mom’s night out event at Lighthouse Park in Mukilteo, I was reminded how wonderful this waterfront spot is. I was so inspired by the park that I organized a dinner picnic for our family with Nana and Papa coming along to help with the boys. We set up dinner at a picnic […]
Graham still has cuddly moods where he’ll want to snuggle for 5.4 seconds after getting up from a long nap. As my belly has gotten bigger he has to scoot up and up to still fit on the couch next to me. “Hey Graham let me take our picture” What’s that saying about things being […]
We’re having a slow start to our day but we’re up and moving. We hope you have a good day today! Graham came into my bedroom this morning and collapsed on the abandoned pillows on the floor next to my side of the bed.
Have a wonderful Friday! If you were here Miles would make you some coffee. And Graham would snuggle with you in bed while everyone wakes up. Miles would want you to read him some stories. And then later we could all do some building with blocks. Some puzzles. And some coloring and painting too!
We’ve been talking about the transition from cribs to beds for the boys for a while now. When they first started getting out of their cribs around the age of two I was worried they’d hurt themselves by falling out of their cribs. Luckily they only got out a handful of times and each time […]

We had a low key 4th of July with a loungy morning and then joining family at Nana and Papa’s house for a bbq. We were back home and doing the boys’ bedtime by 8:30. The boys were still awake when the fireworks really picked up in our neighborhood so we got them out of […]
So far we haven’t had much inspiration on names for our baby girl. I don’t think we had the boys’ names picked out until three weeks before they were born so I’m not totally sweating the name thing yet but still, what the heck shall we name her? I went through US census records and pulled […]
Just in time for your 4th of July holiday, here’s my all time favorite meat marinade recipe that I love to use on flank steak cuts of beef. This recipe comes from the Alton Brown cookbook: I’m Just Here For the Food You’ll need one cut of flank steak and a gallon ziploc baggie and straw or […]
