Things Ollie Says...

Washing the car just like Papa

Reading on the potty just like Granny
In January we took Ollie we stopped on a road trip at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo.  
It is a quirky, pink hotel that happens to have a waterfall urinal in the men's bathroom.  
When Ollie saw it, he exclaimed "You can pee in that?  That is stupendous!"  
This made his dad and multiple frat boys laugh uncontrollably.

November: Happy Thanksgiving!



Dutch Oven Turkey!

Happy very late Thanksgiving!  We were supposed to camp over Thanksgiving, but holy crap it was cold so we just decided to go to Mount Madonna for the day for an amazing Thanksgiving meal outdoors.  Yes it was very cold, but food always tastes better when prepared and eaten outside!  It was beautiful!

Murder Mystery Dinner

Once Upon A Time

Beauty and the Beast
A few months ago our friend Karl invited us to his annual murder mystery dinner.  As always, we could not figure out who the murderer was, but we had a great time.  And no, that is not Jason's real chest hair, it is a toupee!

Things Ollie Says...

Looking just like Mr. Rogers

One of Oliver's Prayers:
Thank you that I get to sleep.
Thank you that it has been a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
Won't you be my neighbor?
Please stay with me forever and ever.
Amen

November: Berkeley's Tilden Park




Back in November we spent a day with our friends Kaitie, Ryan, Izzy and Emmy at Tilden Park.  The kids loved the train ride, feeding the farm animals, a leaf throwing fight, and a hike through the redwoods.  It was a great day with great friends we don't see nearly enough!

February Wishlist

February, the month of Valentines, Mardi Gras & Chinese New Year.  
This is what I want:
wood lazy susan.  is it bad that i fantasize about having an organized kitchen?
pink maxi skirt and pink top.  because it is valentines and they are beautiful and affordable.
attractive key-chain whistle.  i might have just been to an emergency preparedness activity and now i feel in danger not having one of these.
