Steilacoom Farmer's Market

The fall is surely here now.  I can hardly allow myself to enjoy it yet.  I love summer.  Everything about it.  BBQ's, heat, sunshine early in the morning, going on walks with the kids, flowers, lakes, boating, fresh produce, swimming in the pool, no school... and did I mention I love the heat?  So before our summer fades completely I need to post one more ode to my favorite things to do in the summer, Farmer's Markets. 

The one in Steilacoom is the best!  It's less than 5 minutes from our house, the parking is convenient, it's contained so the kids won't get lost, and it still offers everything the other markets offer. 

FREE Chocolate milk?  yes please! 

 kettle corn, my favorite!

Fresh flowers, Isla's favorite!

 Until next summer....I'll be missing you!

Happy Birthday Spider Man BOY-Macrae

Macrae was so excited to have ice cream cone cupcakes at his school and balloons to give to each one of his friends.  Green for the boys and Pink for the girls.  4 years old is great because he thought the school cupcakes and balloons = a birthday party so it was easy for me.  And then he wanted teriyaki from Hana which he calls "that place where we ate with Barret."  This kid is a DREAM!  I don't know if it's the middle child thing or just his disposition but he's agreeable and sweet.  He loves his mom and gives me as many kisses as I want.  Also he always holds open the door for me.  What a gentleman he's becoming!

He wanted a GREEN Spider Man Cake.  So, here it is.  

Happy Birthday to my best boy!

He got so big

But not so big that he could leave his blanket and crocodile at home on the first day of pre-school.

First Day TODAY

Another summer has come and gone.  I couldn't be more bummed about sending her off to the big bad world.  

As we dropped her off this year it was clear she was ready to be back with her friends.  No tears.  Nothing unsure about the routine.  It made me a little sad to see her brothers hug her while she got right to work.

So grown up, she even changed her own earrings!  (It only took her 6 months to get up the courage)
 Clearly, it's a theme.  Kitties are her favorite thing.
