A nap & a stretch or two (or more).

Baby
And a bath.

Other weekend memories to remember:
• Picking up some new peony plants at our favorite local nursery that just opened for the season.
• Going on a walk to the park with Anna in the stroller, Simon on his bike, and Lily on the leash.
• Shopping for lettuce and flowers at the Farmer's Market.
• Eating fresh salmon caught in the morning for dinner on Saturday.
• Breakfast early Sunday morning at our local hangout.
• Simon riding his bike with the neighbor kids and looking so, so tall.

• Making him change his clothes to a short sleeve t-shirt and shorts
because the weather was phenomenal.
• Digging in the backyard and dreaming about the changes I want to make out there (more projects).

    Nothing tastes better than Pacific Northwest Salmon! One of the many things I miss about living there. Simon and Anna look adorable together and I know you will have many, many more moments like that.

    You baby seems so happy with a bath, mine still crying like end of the world, well he is younger (6 wweeks) but sometimes is so frustrating.

    great photos Ali! The one of Anna stretching reminded me of our Wyatt as a babe - he slept in his bouncy seat in that exact pose all the time - my husband used to joke that Wyatt always seemed to be raising his hand with a question.
    I loved how you described your weekend - it sounds heavenly.

    Oh my gosh, I wish I could go back in time with my digital camera and take these kinds of pictures of my kids when they were little!!! Love the one of Simon and Anna during story time! And Anna in the sun napping like a little puppy? Gaawsh! And the fresh salmon?! I've seen that proud smile on Simon's face a time or two! But then you went for the heart melter with the bathtime shot! You are right where you belong, lady, and I am so glad you have invited us along for the ride!

    I adored this post. The look Anna has in her eyes, totally locked on to yours. I miss that Saturday Market in Portland, and fishing for Salmon on the Columbia...wha...homesick! I love peonies and working in the warmer weather. We just got a bit of it yesterday. Finally.
    Okay, off to start my day, Happy Monday Ali and Co.

    I'm so jealous. Having lived in Skagit Valley, I know nothing beats fresh salmon, I miss it so much.

    Love seeing your posts that document your everyday life like that. You captured some great shots of Simon reading to Anna... how precious! Also, the way she looks at you so intently... priceless!
    I am expecting my first child in <6 weeks and within these past few days, am starting to get a little nervous: Keep wondering how big baby will be, how many onesies of each size I will really need, am I prepared enough and... what if the u/s prediction was wrong and it comes out a girl (we have ALL BLUE and camo clothes!) We are VERY EXCITED to welcome this baby into our lives! (Hopefully, not for a few more weeks though...)
    Checked out the MOBY WRAP after you twittered about it. Is it a MUST HAVE?

    I really like it Sarah. It takes a bit of time to get used to - especially in figuring out how to get it on. My sister has it as well and loves it. She told me she watched a couple videos on you tube to help with how to get it on - I did that too and it really helped. They are super soft and comfortable.
