rehearsal night

While people are participating in the wedding rehearsal,
Keena has a quality time with her great grandma.

Eventually, both children found this water play area, 
and got soaking wet.

They had such a good time with Sarah and Giordan (Silas's cousins)!

Anniversary party

It's a party time!
We were invited to Benji and Nahanni's 10th anniversary party. 
The dress code was "white," so we all dressed ini white.

Oh, look at those two children!!!!!

It was such a wonderful party with wonderful people, food and the whole atomosphere.

We had a great party photograper.

And he even enjoyed some cake.

A big congratulation to them.
They were a sweet couple and so inspiring.


While Milo was eating his lunch which his mama made,

Keena was enjoying hers with great-grandmother Sally.

Pretty cool.

music event

Phil's band "the White Glove"played at the street music festival today.

We were there to rock with him.
Keenan needed the ear plugs,

but she was so excited to be there.

Can you tell that?


I don't care!

Actually, it was so nice to have some rain in this super dry summer.

Milo likes to push Keena's stroller.

But now, who have to push this heavy (but sweet) load??

putting shoes on

Keena loved putting her socks on.
Somehow she ran away soon after she put the on.

The, she started putting Milo's shoes on her,

and changed to other ones.

By the way, Milo, does your pants look right?

Roger park morning play

We played at Roger park in this morning.
Milo called it "mushroom park."

Because of this.
Don't this look like a mushroom?!

walk walk walk

Keena has been pretty active and hiked in the woods.

At the school, she was running around.

I bet she has received powerful energy and influence from Milo.

75 cents

75 cents of fun ride.

oaks park preschooler day

We met up Sito at Oaks Park for their preschooler time.

They had a good time for sure.

At the story time, 
a lady who has a tassel saying "miss something(I forgot what she was)"
 and a tiara on her head, read a story for the children.
After the story time, she was passing stickers to them.
Milo got one, and it said "I met a princess today."
Milo though it was a pass to be at Oaks park, so he was wearing it in the park.

When we left the park, we had the following conversations:

            Milo: "Mama, can I take off this sticker because I do not need the pass anymore?"
            Yuri: "Sure."
            Milo: "What does it say?"
            Yuri: "It said 'I met a princess today.'"
            Milo: "Why?"
            Yuri: "Because you met one today.  I thought a princess gave it to you."
            Milo: "NO! 
                      She was just a girl who wanted to be a princess and dressed like a princess."
            Yuri: "Oh..."
            Milo pointing the sticker: "So, is this some kind of joke?"

If you say so, it's a joke!
I love my son:)

river fun

We found the new fun spot.
It was upper Nehalem river, and nobody was there in the hot hot day!
(Although there were 100 biting flies...)

The water was warm, and it was perfect to take a bath in:)

What are you doing?

Oh, do you need papa's help?

You need mama's help!

Our first salmon of the year!

Milo and Silas gathered lots of branches

and made a beaver dam.

We found two beers here!
