Meeting the cousins

We enjoyed a 4 day visit with Scott, Megan, Nick and Penelope last week. This was the first time the cousins got to meet and they got along really well.

The weather was a little iffy, but we did manage to get out a few times. The fountains at Jamison Square were a big hit.

And no trip to Portland is complete without a quick trip to the ocean. The first time for Nick and Penelope! Nick got a good taste of the salt water.

And lots of time spent hanging out in the back yard when the sun finally came out.

In Sod We Trust

We worked our buns of this month, remodeling the back yard. Thanks to a generous donation from Omi we were able to re-sod the lawn and put in a small patio for the pool. Lots of rototilling and endless wheelbarrow loads of gravel, sand, soil and sod over the last 3 weekends. But, it's all done now and looking good and ready to go for the big Cousin's Summit! Stay tuned for more details on that...

Now Bine can enjoy a beautiful weed, rock and glass free lawn! As you can see, she is getting very close to crawling. Any day now...

Here's a few more recent shots...

And a few short videos taken on Heather's new phone:
