My NEW Floor

Here is my new floor... Wes and I put it in the weekend. When I say put it in, I mean snapped it together. This stuff is awesome! It is laminate and hopefully Railie proof. We did already have an incident with some red paint, but it just washed right off. Love it!! Home Depot is the coolest.

My best Craig's List find so far...
This is the under the stairs storage door, draped in my fabric for my window coverings.
The moulding around my windows is very similar.
I'm thinking Romans, anybody (Jennifer) have any other great ideas?

Or there is this fabric that I like, too. And the color matches. The reddish-cinnamon one.

Fun at Our House...

When it starts to warm up, Railie LOVES to go out and play on the front porch. We have some stacked bricks for our walkway that she really enjoys.

Today, she made an oven.
We also like to encourage yard care. Here Emma is teaching Jack to mow the lawn.

See how great he does? Yeah. The Town of Emmett is re-paving the street in front of our house. They spent all last week digging up the road. The man driving the front loader said that as long as we didn't tell anyone where the dirt came from, we could have some. So our story still stands that we have REALLY big gophers. Named Hal. Emma has been making tunnels and faces in the dirt ever since we got it. Railie keeps cooking it. I didn't ask.

Dressing the Dragon

We call this series of photos Lessons in Patience, as it is sometimes an exercise of will to get Ian's clothes on. It took Papa Ron to do it this time, at Easter. You can just tell by that little smirk on Ian's face what kind of a kid he can be sometimes. (Really, it's only when you have to dress him, he's a great child!!)

Missing the City

I LOVE San Francisco! I have always loved big cities. The noise, the people, the energy, the history, the smells, the food! When my sister moved to San Francisco, I got to go once a year. The she moved to San Jose and Wes and Emma got to go visit because the Dr. said I was too pregnant to go. Now she is living in Finland and will be there for another 18 months or so. I am missing the City today.

This is walking down Fillmore Street toward the bay. I love to just take off with my camera and go exploring.

This is a shot of Market Street from Twin Peaks. If you look to the right, you can see the Bay Bridge. Love this city.
