mr. happy

oliver is 5 months old today. as you can see he has quite the sturdy base, so he's starting to sit pretty well.
tummy time.

camping in the redwoods

we went camping a couple weeks ago with some good pals the drummonds, the harmans and the laytons. fun times. here's a few shots.

joel whizzing around on his new scooter. i know... he doesn't have a helmet on. he has one and he knows he's supposed to wear it, but he snuck off without it, the stinker.

new beds all around

well not for ben and i, but for all the boys.

bunk beds!

and a new crib for ollie. $150 at target! ...and it's darling. can't beat that.

i'm am officially a moron. i was waiting in line for gas at costco tonight and my car dies... out of gas. apparently the 22 gallon tank that they advertised in the handbook of our new honda odyssey minivan is really a 19 1/2 gallon tank. i called out to this indian guy filling his tank in the line next to me to help me push the van forward. wow. my car is REALLY heavy. a couple more indian guys in line behind me hopped out of their car and helped us. good thing i was next in a humongous line that i had been waiting in for 20 minutes already. i was so embarrassed my hands were shaking. thanks to good samaritans number 1, 2 and 3 for helping out a silly girl.
