The start of summer

It's been a loong time since I last posted. I didn't realize the connection to the weather, but as soon as the sun came out again, so did my camera.

All these shots are from this weekend. The sun finally emerged from its hiatus, and Portland was glorious. There was much playground time, as well as an expedition to “Antarctica” (inspired by the Magic Treehouse books, which we are deep into), a trip to the farmer's market, the requisite lemonade stand, and some excellent grilling.

And as a special bonus, Little Bit decided that after 5 years, she was finally willing to sit on Anna's lap!

Today the sun is pretending none of this ever happened, but I have my photos as proof.

And then they graced Anna with their daisy chain.

Great photos! And, speaking of the "strong" part: have you ever tried kettlebells? I've just discovered them.
