Hey blog! Mr. Baby is in his baby bouncer next to me on the floor while I type this. We’ll see how long it lasts…(do I say that every time? I think so).
For no particular reason at all, here is a street performer from our trip to NYC back in October 2015.
On Saturday after I got off work, we drove to Portland to celebrate my beautiful cousin Erika’s graduation from nursing school. She is 25 weeks pregnant, and looks radiant.
She had a luau in her front yard. It was mostly family–her mother and one of her brothers, her mom’s boyfriend and his sons, her husband’s mother and sister.
But of course we couldn’t make a trip to Portland without picking up Christopher!
We spent the night at a Red Lion, and on the way out of town we HAD to stop at “Voodoo Doughnuts”, of course. Mmmm.
I got a “Gay Bar”–a bar doughnut filled with cream with vanilla frosting and a line of Froot Loops on top, and a “Triple Chocolate Penetration”–chocolate cake donut with chocolate frosting and chocolate cereal on top. YUM.
The dogs stayed with our favorite boarder, who we just learned is moving houses and won’t be able to board them anymore. Dammit.
In the meantime suddenly it’s HOT here. It’s supposed to get up to nearly 90 today…gross. I have the baby dressed in a sleeveless onesie with crabs on it and after this typing, I’m going to take him for a nice cool air-conditioned drive to get him to nap.
And even though it’s 10 in the morning, I may just have a popsicle.
Of course on the day of the summer solstice, it still looked like this! Look at poor old Maggie dog.
I pulled up a ton of these big funky green plants earlier this year and the ones I missed blossomed…foxglove! Whoops! Maybe I’ll remember next year.
Joshy bought me flowers. Just cause.
Baby’s second trip to the beach…no falling in quicksand this time! Score!
We may go again today. What else do you do when it’s grossly hot? Get wet!
We live so close to the water. It’s nice.
I even broke out Ye Olde Rainbow Hat. I’ve had that damn thing since I was about 21.
Too hot for black dogs to walk in the afternoon–Josh took them for a 9 am walk today.
Friday night fun with baby. Yesterday an ice cube in a snack bag kept him entertained for at least 30 minutes.
It’s Pride Weekend! I’m always a little nostalgic for the parade. Maybe next year.
Current obsession: strawberry Mexican popsicles. SO GOOD.
This is my thigh. I don’t know why. My oh my?
This morning at 4 am while I lay awake, sweating, I thought a psychedelic alphabet adult coloring book was a great idea. What do you think?
