Sprinklers, homemade rocket ship sugar free 100% organic juice popsicles (can you say super yum?), and Liam is officially crawling!!! I'll have to post video later. He's not terribly efficient, but he's up on all fours and moving those hands and knees forward. It's real cute. I can't believe my baby is already growing up. Ahhhhh, need more babies. Oh wait, no we don't! Love 'em more than anything ever, but not ready to have 3.

My friend Corrie Beth, and her friend Mikey, wrote this here song that my boys are enjoying. Corrie, I tried to email this video to you, but your email won't allow it. too big. So, I put it here for you to see. Let me know if you don't want it on here for some reason and I'll take it off. Oh yeah, we loved it. Send more new Corrie songs!

You know the feeling.
So, my butt aint getting any smaller (actually it is, but it's losing it's nice muscular bubbliness, which isn't good. Dan married me for my butt, seriously). Try as I may to get outside and do stuff, I usually have a baby strapped to me (and am going at toddler pace). This does make walking up a mountain harder, but it's still less work than running up the mountain, which is what I need to be doing to get my heart rate up, lose the belly pouch, and get back the butt. I decided a nice piece of home exercise equipment might do the trick. So, I went on craigslist and found this $10 gem, definitely from the 80's. It works fine, but let's see if I ever actually use the thing. Halen likes it too.

We went to Henry Hagg lake yesterday. Halen and Dan rented a canoe and paddled around for awhile. Dan says Halen was terrified and shaking the whole time, calling for 'Mama Mama.' Halen says he had fun and wants to go again today. Silly. I liked this picture of Halen. It reminded me of Wyeth's 'Christina's World.'

Today I went and picked up a new project. Paul was in town and gave me this truck for free. All it needs is a new clutch and the brakes need some attention. She doesn't have a name yet, but I will let you know as soon as she does. The truck just happens to be the same color as my 510.

Family came to visit, O'ma, O'pa, and Grandma. We spent 3 days doing fun stuff. We rode the Portland Spirit down the Willamette River, eating a fancy vegan lunch aboard the ship. Halen and Grandma rode a pedi-cab through downtown. We rode Portland's sky tram. We saw 4 or 5 waterfalls. We rode a historical train, made to look like Thomas for the day, through Hood Valley. We went to Portland's rose garden, where roses were as big as my head, on bushes twice my height. We rode the magic mile ski lift at Mt. Hood's timberline lodge, where it was a sunny 80 degrees in the snow. There were people up there still snow boarding. Halen really didn't want to leave the mountain until he got to snowboard. I told him he could when he was three. Now he won't stop asking when he turns 3. It was a fun weekend. Time now to catch up on laundry!
