We went to the Ronald Reagan Library today. It’s been a while since we last visited. When we pulled up to the parking lot I remembered Annika was crawling and pulling herself up on things but not yet walking when we were there last. So she must have been somewhere around 10 months….the very same … Continue reading Ronald Reagan Library
School starting is a sign of summer ending. Even though the weather is still warm I know the holiday season and cooler fall weather are around the corner. In fact, I’m already thinking of what to make for Halloween costumes. I wanted to pull a few images of this past summer. Right now I’m very … Continue reading Summer of 2010
I’m trying to get back to doing some of the things I use to do with P. One of them is visiting the turtle pond and botanical garden at our neighborhood college. P loves them both.

I planted herb seeds with P not too long ago. She helped me put them in our “pot”, which is really our broken wheel barrow. Every day we water the “seeeeeds” as she calls them.
