|My first time baking a Pecan Pie! It turned out much better than I anticipated.|
i love when these boys just know that i need time to edit all the weddings and family session i have in the summer! i really needed time the other day, and while griffin was taking a nap, and without asking they just played downstairs... politely, quietly, and contently. i am so grateful for moments like this.
but they are still good for a quick little laugh. enjoy.

conner had an assignment at school where he was supposed to do a service project. he chose to bake cookies and hand them out to our neighbors, telling them how much he liked being their neighbor. he had to bake the cookies all by himself and document the project with pictures. i was surprised at how little help he needed. it never ceases to amaze me how quickly my little family, and these little men of mine, are growing up. every once in awhile i will glimpse an image of what my boys will look like as young men. and it makes me sad and excited all at once. and every once in a while, i feel like i can actually see them growing. like i can see little bits of their baby-ness fading away, and they really are turning into boys. not little babies. not little toddlers BOYS. and then i shout out at them STOP IT! STOP GROWING RIGHT THIS MINUTE! and then we all have a good laugh. and i hug them just a little tighter. and then think about, maybe, just maybe, having another baby.

for reals. i have been wanting/meaning/trying to go to the tacoma kids museum for a few years now. in fact, we have gotten all ready, lunches packed, and made the drive to tacoma only to drive around and never find the museum. on more than one occasion. and i don't think i am that bad at directions. i know evan would say that i am really bad when it comes to making u-turns, but finding a place. come on. i can do that. i think the old childrens museum must have been invisible or something, cause to this day, i still have no clue where it was located. it's a good thing the new one is super easy to find now. we went today with our good friends monique and her kiddos. it was awesome. the boys had so much fun, and the museum is just the right size. plus, you pay what you can...and that is just awesome! not that i am a total cheapskate. i mean i am. but ya know...some of these museums are like 8 bucks per kids to get in. and i have more than 1 kid. so that gets spensive. ya know.
