Our New House

I keep meaning to post pictures of our new house, but I thought maybe I could wait until some things were on the walls, etc. But, since it looks like that time isn't going to come anytime soon, here are some pictures to get started.

It's just your typical 60's square block house (built in 1963). But the surrounding and the neighborhood is really awesome. We are LOVING it here. There is a playground not even two blocks up our street and a community swimming pool. There is great walking and a sense of community. There are some shops and a hamburger place up the hill. Lots to do and a huge back-yard, and birds singing in the trees. It's wonderful:) Rowan's loving the yard and the back deck. The dogs are loving all their room.

Here's the outside. I admit, not much to look at. But I have great plans! :)

There's a great front porch -

The entryway (love the bamboo floors) - and a bathroom at the end of the hall-

Rowan's room -

Here's the kitchen and breakfast area. I love the brick floors -

Here's the den and sliding glass doors to the deck and the backyard -

More den (sorry for the mess and dogginess) -

I'll post some pictures of the deck and the backyard later. I also didn't put pictures of the living room, dining room, mud room, garage, or our bedroom and bathroom b/c they are all either really messy or full of boxes. But I'll try to get some on soon so we can do some before and after type of thing.

Happy Father's Day

I'm sorry I'm a day late, but I hope everybody had a Happy Father's Day. To our Dad's that we didn't get to see on the day, I hope you had a very nice day:) We love and miss you.

I think Clarence enjoyed his Father's Day. We started the day in the sprinkler.

Then we moved to the sandbox which we had turned into a pool for the day.

I'm sure he was saying, "Daddy, awwwun". That's the best way I can spell the funny way he says "on".

After a trip to the organic market and a quick bite to eat, it was time for Rowan to nap. After he woke up, we headed to the zoo. We had a great time there.

Rowan still points to the "boo-boo" on his head and says, "band-aid". I'm not sure why this sweet gum ball he found reminded him of his boo-boo.

Here they're checking out some raccoons on the other side of the wall.

Rowan is drinking out of a bottled water, and he hardly spilled any of it!

Saturday mornings

A glimpse of a Saturday morning: Rowan eating buckwheat pancakes in his diaper (because syrup is really sticky!), crumbs everywhere, a foot kicked up on the table (we're working on that).

He's trying to open the window.

In the picture below, he's calling, "Laaaaney!" because the dogs were outside, and he wanted to see them.

Fun with Em!
