Aunt Nancy Jane Was Here

Cousin Visit – Dec 2008

The girls LOVE when their cousins, Miles and Marabee, come to visit. Tons of good times: snow play, bath play, house play, dance play, swim play, scavenger hunt play, craft play… all around lots of play. Look at all those various blonde heads.

Oma and Nana Visit!

Oma (my Gramma) and Nana came to visit! Nothing beats the unstructured time of out of town visiting, especially with Norma’s generous and kind hospitality. They stayed next door at Norma’s house but could walk over to our house with great ease for dinner, visiting, various item exchanges… and we did the same. This arrangement […]

Our friend Cynthia has a tea party every year (I’ve probably mentioned it before) with “hats and gloves optional”. I love wearing a hat and gloves each year. This year, Norma was here – and she provided beautiful hats for the party! So, here we are in our hats, ready to head off to the […]

Suttle Lake – Not So Subtle Us

A lovely day in so many ways; stunningly blue skies and warm temperate weather, a whole day with no other commitments, and happy dispositions all around. There’s just something primally exhilirating about pristine nature (see Annika running […]

Xtreme Reading

Aunt Nancy Jane read to Annika for 1.5 hours last night! She started while Jim and I were upstairs doing an interview on the phone (I’ll explain later) and Grammy was putting no-nap Serena to bed then she just kept going way beyond our arrival back downstairs and all the way until long-napped (so late-to-bed) […]

Ice Cream

Really, Scout should have no rides ever. She needs every single ounce of energy expension we can muster for her because she is a very energetic dog. But, isn’t it funny, her in this stroller?! Nancy takes such good care of Scout. Scout gets fed first thing in the morning, walked at least once per […]

Happy Birthday (belated), Grammy!

As a belated birthday present for Norma (her birthday was August 29th), we took her to Jen’s Garden for dinner. It’s a cozy, fine-dining restaurant in a little cottage in Sisters (a psuedo-old west town about 20 miles northwest of us). We took her there because it is the best food I have tasted in […]
