Sydney Monday's

Sydney was given our old digital camera to takes her own photos of life. I have loved scrolling through the photos at the end of the day when she is tucked away in her bed. The persepctive from her little view of life is heart warming. Even if it is of a pile of shoes or of a diaper on the floor. She felt it worthy of a photo. She is an artist in so many ways. I hope that this camera is a new way for her to express herself. So, I am going to try to dedicate Mondays to her photos. Life through her eyes.

The weekend in pictures....LOTS of pictures

Always trying to get that shot of me and the girls. Never quite turns out the way I think it should. But I think I am learning to love this type of family photo.

After a bottle of paint emptied out by stella, numerous paint containers tops pulled off and paint all over stella and I , it turned out to be a beautiful morning for painting and some great art to show for it.

beryy picking- Sauvie Island Oregon

We loved to go berry picking on Sauvies Island when we lived in Portland so we went despite the rumors of not very many berries left to pick. And as you can tell by Sydney's empty baskets, there were not too many left. They were either not ripe yet or already picked. We did manage to eat lots of handfulls fight off the bush, but we didn't make is home with our crate full like we had hoped. But we all still had fun and had our purple finger tips to prove it.

Oaks Park- Portland Oregon

Don't mess with me or my sister. I got you in my sight!
Sydney loving the 'belly dropper'.
It was really fun going to Oaks park with the girls. What a difference a year makes. Last year stella was big enough to do much of anything. This year she went on a lot by her self and Sydney. They loved it. They went on the rides over and over again. What a fun place to go. We miss Oaks Park and the unlimited rides for $6 compared to the Santa Cruz boardwalk where it cost $6 for both girls to ride 1 ride.Posted by Picasa
