Happy 4th!

I'm done apologizing.

I'm just too busy.

So here's a quick update

because I don't know if I'll get another chance to do it in the next three months

I joke

sort of


We've experienced our first real spring

and the thing that they don't tell you about it

is those blooms only last for about two weeks

seriously, two weeks of beautiful pinks, purples, and yellows

and then they all come off

what's up with that?

We got to go back to California for a few days 

and I almost cried when I found out

I've been a little homesick these days

for sun, and 65 mph, and disneyland

we got to meet my new niece 

have some quality cousin time


and hang out in Mickey's backyard

There's good eats here in Portland

and we've been getting a good taste of it

beer and wine flavored ice cream

pizza like I've never had before

and food cart dates have now become my favorite

Aidan is in the beginning of her swimming career

and we're seeing a bright future up ahead

friendships are continuing to grow

and goodbye's have already started to take place

because each family's time here is limited

But we're continually thankful and blessed for this season as a family

Happy 4th of July!

We'll be eating hot dogs and watching the Sandlot
