p.s. Sorry, we couldn't share more photos, our camera battery died and we played a bit with Dan's camera on his phone
Saturday, August 29, 2009
Dan loved that Mount Si was in the background.
He hiked to the top when he was in scouts.
He also ran into a few guys that he grew up with.
One of them called him by his nickname from that time, Smiley.
I think that's funny since Dan will rarely smile in one of my photo's.
Bono Baby didn't get to go to the picnic but don't worry he went on his very own little adventure afterwards.
He went to the Train Depot for a walkabout.
I've decided that he likes trains since he made friends with one yesterday.
Something To Look Foward To
Dan and I are big Wes Anderson fans.
We are so anxious to see Fantastic Mr. Fox.
It looks like it will be a "fun time" movie trip for sure.
p.s. My favorite Wes Anderson film is The Darjeeling Limited.
I love watching sibling rivalries.
Dan's is Rushmore. He loves movies about academics.
What is your favorite Wes movie?
Dad Morris found this Lionel Christmas train for get this, $3.00.
That's right, batteries included.
Bono Baby wasn't too sure about the train.
He wasn't too happy when his toy monkey ended up inside the tracks.
Bono Baby warmed up to the new train and he and his monkey were reunited.
It was a good day.
We spent a total of $6.50.
p.s. I bought one more thing but it is a surprise for someone.
It's super cute and it's going to make this special someone very happy.
I loved meeting all the birds. My favorite was named Max.
I think my love of birds stems from my love of the Tiki Hut.
Fritz is my favorite Tiki Hut birdie.
Speaking of the Enchanted Tiki Room, my sister-in-law has a recipe for a pinapple surprize drink like the ones you can get outside of the Tiki Hut.
Maybe, she'll let me post it.
Pretty please Katherine?
Pam and I had a lovely day out in the sun with all our new friends.
Thank goodness for FRIENDS.

Dan and I spent our wedding night in the Georgia O'Keeffe room at The Artists' Inn in Pasadena, California.
I will forever think of that night when I look at Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings.
Happy Friday Friends

I have a second one next week.
It's a job at a place that we all LOVE.
If I don't talk about it again, then I didn't get it.
I will be okay but I won't feel like sharing.
Baby Steps For Fritzi Marie
They make me happy.
People need to know that we care about them, and cute note cards are the perfect way to show them.

Happy Tuesday Dear Friends

Then there is my living room and my dream couch that I am hoping to get one day.
I love this floral, maybe curtains or pillows to match my yard sale treasure found in Monrovia last spring (a blue secretary hutch).
By the way, my talk prep on FAITH has been doing wonders on my state of mind.
Last week, I would have told you that I was so down and out and ready to give up on everything.
Now, I'm cool. Things are looking up. They have to. I'm humming my favorite pick me up song in my head and thinking about all the friends and family who have my back.
I'm wishing again and that makes me so happy.

On The Road
It seems like we were on the road forever ago. I finished up the last of our polaroid film. We did save two photos. I need to get one of Bono Baby in his raincoat and one of my Daniel.
That is good news.

Bono Baby loved watching the kites floating around in the air and the seaplanes landing on Lake Union.
Dan didn't have the best birthday ever but we plan to re-celebrate it later on.
We did go out for a lovely dinner with the family and Dan had his fill of sesame chicken.
Dan's list of things that make him happy really showed us how much he loves food.
The best part about his love for food is that he loves to cook too.
Our fantastic view from our picnic spot.
I wasn't too happy with this ensemble.
Today was one of those days where my closet made me upset.
I wish I could have made his birthday perfect.
But, I have lots of years to make it up to him.
I am so happy that he is my best friend and he stands by me and my many moods.
I am truly blessed to have such an amazing husband.
Happy Birthday Daniel
I love you times a million
