Halloween 2015

Jane and Gyte were too cute in their Halloween costumes this year, so naturally we had to do a photoshoot. My mom made Jane's fox costume and found Gyte's bear costume. So far she has dressed my child/children every year for Halloween. 

Our family of woodland creatures. :)

Welcome Fall

Fall in Seattle is exactly how I remember it. I find myself smiling as I drive through the light rain and low clouds. In the past I didn't appreciate the fall in the northwest. It felt like the weather was always the same and the seasons didn't really change. I loved all the colors of fall in Cleveland and Pittsburgh, but fall was also a reminder of winter. Cold, freezing, brown, and dirty. Months of shoveling the driveway, scrapping the car, and stuck indoors. Being the the northwest this year I am not so worried.

Seattle Summer: Park Days

We are in love with Seattle's summers. One of our favorite things to do is visit the park by our house. 

 I brought the camera along today since Jane looked adorable in the outfit my mom bought her. 

As expected she had no desire to pose for me. In this picture I said, "Show me the chapstick on your lips!" 

The best part about this park are the blackberry bushes surrounding it. You can smell the berries before you even enter the park.  It's one of those smells that reminds me of my childhood and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :)

You can bet there will be blackberry pie, blackberry syrup, and anything else we can think of that involves blackberries and sugar.

 A trip to the park isn't complete unless it involves dirt. This is how Jane looked when we left. I was impressed.
