My "BFF" Sara (who may actually lose places in that list for having and sending this picture)...

Sent me this freak show!
7th grade dance with tom DePonty. 

I remember this dress, pretty sure I borrowed it from my "cool" big sis Pia - it had a lace collar! It must have come from some working woman wardrobe. Seriously what was I thinking?!

And don't even get me going on the terrible hair. The. Worst.

Oh and the chub. I honestly had no clue. I look like the chubby girl version of Tom.

More Whidbey

Vacay is still great... Even though it's raining today, and Pooh and Laura are leaving us. Boo. 

Kayaking trip - I didn't take my camera, so pics can be seen on Facebook ;) but it was super fun! We saw harbor seals, jellyfish (ew), porpoise whale (?), and a huge sealion and her baby (momma tried to eat us)!

Summer vacation is here at last!!! Couldn't have come soon enough, either. We have wifi at the house so will post through the trip... Maybe :)

Here are a couple pics so far...

Walt loving the car ride

We ran into Colie Friberg on the highway! They passed us on their way to Vantage so we got out to say hello! It was super windy there. 

Morning stroll/hike with the gang and pups down to Lake Kachess and then up around the hills. Tried to find huckleberries, had limited success. 

The view from the Whidbey house! Beautiful, although the setup is weird... 2 tiny houses. Oh well, can't complain. 

Birthday girl is relaxed!

HBD momma!

My favorite mom is 60 today! She would say she hates that she's 60, it sounds so old. But, as someone who works with and knows WAY too many people who never make it that far, I would say that 60 is wonderful. A gift. And you are as close to perfect as it gets. Love you... Like 60. 

How cute are you?!

Yes, I decides to spend yet another week at camp cross this summer. As usual, it was exhausting, amazing, fulfilling, difficult, and HOT!

If you wanna see how the week was, you can check out this sweet video (I make a few cameos)!

Poor baby

Lulu has a clipped wing! :(. The poor gal was limping this morning, took her in, turns out she had a broken, bent, bloody toenail! Which, unfortch, meant she had to go under the knife to get it fixed.  It's been a rough day. 

Pre-surgery (if you look closely you can see that sad toenail sticking up all cock-eyed)

After with her sad little foot wrap. 

Also, she is the funniest thing ever with the Cone of Shame on. Seriously completely freezes and won't move.

Back yard beauty!


One year ago (almost):
The back of the back yard hedges

The corner and raised bed garden 

A month ago:
The raised bed

The old fence

Last friday:
The back of the yard with the hedges gone, fence posts up:

Fence done, a few new bushes planted, yard weed free

Raised bed with veggies

I don't know about you, but I'm exhausted! And have the BEST roomies ever!!!  So grateful for their blood, sweat, and help with paying for things!!!
