today was rainy and cold and we got a call from cousin angie asking if we wanted to go to the childrens museum. OF COURSE.
we'd never been and i wasnt sure if she was old enough but it was PERFECT. she had so much fun. we spent awhile there and hope to go back again soon. when its not so rainy we'll go to the zoo too. we have a membership there and they have lions now!!

christmas is upon us and if youd like a card comment or email janeknox01@hotmail.com and we'll send one out soon as possible with a leila pic!

it was a sweltering 90 something degree 930am play date at the park. it was so good to see everyone. it was brief because our kids were turning red from heat but leila got to meet jamies kids. they alll looked like they could be sisters and brothers with the white blonde hair. leila loved all the attention and love. and the monkey, she carried it around all day. she still wears the boots around the house(naked cause shes leila).  we hope to see everyone again soon.

as temps were going to be mid 90s again mom said to pack up the girl and lets go to the coast. so we did. we went to long beach wa. it was misty and temps in the high 60s . it was perfect. we stopped in longview wa to have sandwhiches. then we drove the washington side to long beach. it was very misty and we couldnt see very far on the beach. we played in the sand for hours. then we drove to a state park on the peninsula that was empty except for us. we had more sandwhiches and strawberries. we went for a drive and saw oysterville. a small village based on the oyster farm industry of old. it was very very cute. we stopped for ice cream in astoria on the way home. it was a very lovely day.

saturday we went to aunt loas. it was her 51st bday and uncle jan was in town after 2.5yrs of not being in town. so we had to get together and celebrate. so we had mt hood strawberries, fresh watermelon, coleslaw and pulled pork sandwiches. YUMMO.


the rest of the day went fine. leila played with cousin josh, he's 3 months older. and its perfect cause she calls every boy josh anyway so she got his name right. i got to hold levi.  he's a few months old now. little and squishy.  he's a real qt.

then we had ice cream cake and watched some of the horse races. mostly we just hung out and talked. i took lots of pictures.

I've always loved roses. its a very sentimental thing. it reminds me of my grandpa and his rows of roses surrounding his house. its a child hood memory sort of thing. so i always knew when i could id plant some roses. and with absolute luck mine are doing amazing. ive already had several  blooms this year. leila got excited and shredded two of them after smelling them but there are some pics of the others. here ya go:

first few pics are from yesterday before my appointment. then this morning we went to the park. she climbed and balanced and slid. she loves pushing her stroller around so i let her push it there and back. help tire her out for a nap?*wishful thinking*
and then theres her noshing out on some noodles. parks make her hungry

i got the joy of working in the nursery this sunday. it was so fun to watch them play with toys and run around happy. then at the end while waiting for parents to show we bust out the bubbles and let the kids run wild. it was so cute how happy they get over something as small and simple as bubbles.
it was so fun.
