Do It Tomorrow!

For the last little while, Andy and I have a had a running gag between us, 'do it tomorrow'. He says it's my motto. And sadly, I agree. I find myself saying it quite a bit. I don't think it has to do with laziness, just the fact that with 2 kids, there just isn't enough time in the day to get everything accomplished. So for mother's day, I was thrilled that Andy made breakfast and dinner! So this last Tuesday evening after dinner, he announced that he had to run an errand with Grace. When they returned, they quickly ran upstairs. I thought they were just coming back down a few minutes later. But he did not finish his secret project until 10pm. So I had to laugh when he finally let me see what he was up to. I just find it ironic that he gives me a bad time for putting things off, when he had this idea since March and didn't do it until after mother's day! Thanks to Andy and Grace for the 'cheap and bad advice'!

Baird Mania

We had a fun little weekend (5.8.08-5.11.08) with our friends Adam, Heidi, and Campbell Baird! We met Adam and Heidi when we lived in Provo. They now live in Washington while Adam is in law school. On the day they arrived, we happened to dress our boys in the same exact outfit.

The next day we took them to the coast. The weather was a bit on the cold side, but that didn't stop Andy and Grace from enjoying the beach. We first went to Seaside, which we hadn't checked out before, then headed over to our favorite, Cannon Beach.

At Seaside they had these swings for the kids. Here's a good back-to-back comparison of our boys. They are 5 weeks apart!

Here we are, yet again, at our favorite spot!

On Saturday we took them to another favorite spot, Multnomah Falls.

After enjoying nature's beauty, we enjoyed a man-made beauty, Bridgeport Village, a large outdoor mall. We had never been there before, and I'm already looking forward to going back! A favorite spot of Heidi's is Pudding on the Rice. Which if anyone has a chance to try, I would highly recommend it, especially if you like pudding! Andy and Adam are not fans, hence the picture.

Grace's favorite spot was the play area, of course! I just thought this was a cool picture of her in the cylinder thing.

Some other things we did while they were here but not pictured: saw Iron Man, ate at Camp 18 (Andy's favorite restaurant on the way back from the Coast), and checked out a bit of downtown Portland (couldn't get very far without the strollers). Thanks for coming you guys!
