We posted new pictures, if you hadn’t noticed. Ily and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary by going to the Japanese Garden. Reece tagged along too, but he’s so laid back that we hardly noticed. Well, except when his diaper leaked, but that was caught before we made it more than 20 feet from the car, thankfully. The garden was beautiful and very relaxing.

Other than that, I haven’t written much because we’ve been out enjoying the sunshine as much as we can manage (as in, between changing two sets of diapers and catching up on sleep). We’ve picked about 20 pounds of blueberries from a co-worker’s ranch, been up to another co-worker’s cabin on the Swift Reservoir for a day, enjoyed another visit from Benj and Melinda (who are moving up to Beaverton!), attended a Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband concert, and played on the slip-n-slide once or twice (with no broken bones!). And we thought this summer wouldn’t be any fun because of the new baby. Hah! Three kids is cake. I don’t know what all those families that stopped at 1.8 kids were afraid of.
