Mischievous Monkey

Here is our boy hoarding all of the orange crayons at a restaurant. He was up there saying "M-O-S-O-N"- he thinks that's how his name is spelled. Our little genius is getting there, right? :)

First Day at the Spa...

Mr. Nohawk

Mase wanted to experiment with his hair using Daddy's new "blue hair stuff". So we did a fun mohawk. He went to preschool like that yesterday and said to his teacher, "Miss Stacey, look at my NOHAWK!"

Ava's big day

Little Ava (or "Aves", as Mase adoringly refers to her) had her blessing in church this past Sunday. We are thankful that Roland's parents could be here with us and that grandma made her beautiful dress. We miss you guys!

The LOVES of my life!

Mirror, Mirror...

Ava is pretty narcissistic these days. A mirror is her favorite thing and it's hard to tell but she is looking at herself in this photo. We are sure in trouble if she knows how cute she is this early! (:

Cannon Beach, OR

This past weekend we visited Cannon Beach. It's just over an hour from where we live in Portland and one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! It's crazy to be driving through pine trees and then suddenly hit the beach... In the first photo, you can see a little bit of the land and how it's covered in trees. I'm not great at scenery photos, so this doesn't do the place justice. Mason's face isn't really visible in many of the pictures we took because he loved it so much he was just running nonstop. (As usual, right?) In the first picture, he was throwing a rock and you can see it midflight. Ro was brave and took a dip in the ocean even though the water was pretty cold. One of the things we love about Portland is how you can get to the coast or the mountains or the desert (as if we would want to go there! Hee hee!) in just over an hour.
