We went berry picking up Mill Creek and forgot to take a camera! And those big blackberries (not to mention our juice-splattered t-shirts) would have made a nice picture. So instead, here is a picture of a delicious, homemade berry pie. Much like the one I will make *IF* I ever get around to it.

Speaking of pie, don't spend another second here. Go directly to April's blog. She makes a pie a week and posts a photo and the recipe. Scroll down...her pie list is on the left.

Morphed kid

This is what our kid was supposed to look like according to Thank goodness Ethan has his own look!

Google eyes

Ethan got hold of the camera again. Which means I now have 47 pictures of the back of Google's head. Plus this one.

Good doggy

We are getting pretty close to actually committing to this. What do you think, blog visitors? (I know you're out there, all nine of you.) She needs a new home, we've been looking for a dog.... And she already has a name, but I'm open to changing that. Ideas?

First day of school

Third grade. Wow. He didn't care one bit about what to wear on the first day. He just grabbed a clean t-shirt that morning (I ironed it, against slight protests).

Seize the weekend

With a month's worth of unpacking to do, we said, what the heck, it's the last weekend before going back to work and school, let's go camping. It was worth it.

Snoqualmie Falls

A bonus of the trip home from the Mitchells is that we can stop and see the falls. And I've almost gotten to the point where I can look at it without thinking about a dancing dwarf or cherry pie.

Spoiled at the Sit-and-Spin

This time, I can't complain about the kid getting spoiled by his grandparents, because we got to go too! I joined Ethan at a window seat because he'd already made me promise to sit by him (lucky me!). The view from the Space Needle was a big hit. So was the dessert with dry ice fog. The most entertaining thing, though, might have been putting a penny on the ledge and waiting to make the trip back around to it. I think the food was OK...who remembers the food at a place this fun??

I sure do miss this kid!

After the funeral and various family events, we took Ethan to spend some time with his other grandparents. He is being spoiled silly: amusement park, playgrounds, science museum, movies, his cousin's cowboy birthday party, and a train trip to Seattle. (Where we get to meet him tomorrow. Can't wait!) His aunt e-mailed us party pictures last night.

It's really great to see him look so good, because last time we saw him, he had skin scraped off his face and body as well as a black eye. (Bike crash.) Pitiful, isn't it??

Here's Anita...

...and the lovely Miss Muppet. This kitty LOVES the camera. If my batteries hadn't died, I would have a whole Miss Muppet gallery!

It was great to get together with my childhood BF again! She, her house, her garden and her cat are all absolutely beautiful. Almost inspires me to go home and do some fantastic landscaping. (Naaaaaaah.... :-))
