SOMETIMES IT'S JUST: "IT IS, WHAT IT IS"

When your 'landscaper' is only 5 foot tall....


There have been several 'firsts' this spring/summer.

Finn had his first graduation. He graduated from Montessori preschool - can you believe he'll be in kindergarten this fall????




I also had my first Cousin's week. Two of my sisters (Marcia and Susan) and two of my cousins (Wendy and Cindy) all met at Wendy's house in California for a fabulous time. Wine, shopping, great meals and lots of laughs. Oh, and I had another first ...... my first cosmopolitan!




On a trip to Portland, I had my first visit to Voodoo donuts. Oh my gosh - the best ever.





During a trip to visit the barn, Finn decided he was brave enough to have his first solo ride on Durango. Yay!




Some of my first garden bouquets. Love these peonies.



On a trip to the library, Madeline pointed at a picture of Dolly Parton on the wall and said, "Nana!". Now that is a first for me.



Adorable beach picture.


We took a trip to Florida for a family reunion last week. Yes, Florida in June. Despite the unGodly weather, it was wonderful to see my family. Its been almost 7 years since our last reunion so it was amazing to see everyone and all the new children.


You know how if they misplace your luggage, they ask for a description? We decided this was the best way to show them without having to remember - is it silver or would you call it platinum? Gold, really???




Of course there were trips to Disneyworld. Moments of excitement for some, not so much for others.




My NY Grandchildren: Alistair and Ahnika


So many great photos of Disney: Note, Madeline definitely wants to go to the Country Bear Jamboree. But once inside, she kept saying NO!



River kayaking fun:



Someone thought this cute hat had palm fronds on it!



A random chuckle





And one more. Exactly WHAT is going into that trunk?



Cousins. Sweet Bergen trying to console Finn.




Did I mention that we were asked to fly on a later flight to Orlando and we got flight credits AND flew first class? I have now been severely spoiled.



Once back home, we took in some whale watching down the road at Depoe Bay.







The dogs were very happy to see us. But I thought I heard some grumbling about not even getting a t-shirt.......




I'm already missing all the family we got to see and the ones that couldn't make it. But summer is here so let the fun continue!



One step at a time,



Anne
