Favorite Hike


Nana arrived last Thursday! Everyone is so glad she's here... a complete Godsend with the children. She'll be here for 3 months. Hoping she wants to extend her stay :)

A Titanic Day!

Rafi has previously shown a self-generated interest in the Titanic - he has read about it in a few books and watched quite a few times a documentary that tries to prove what factors contributed to it's demise. So when we found out an exhibition of artifacts bought up from the Titanic was coming to Portland, off we went (minus Mum...)

It was really wonderful to see these historical artifacts up close - and despite having a few sinking feelings myself as I chased three kids around a darkened room with irreplaceable objects in glass cases - the kids all enjoyed themselves. On a sad note - all three passengers we were assigned with their ticket did not survive the sinking 104 years ago...

Chatty Hatts and her pups

There is absolutely no sign of a baby as I look at our sweet Hatts. She's funny and feisty, and even beginning to put two words together. 'ice-pop' (perhaps that doesn't count), 'bye guys', 'bye dad'. And she's got a new love.... walking the pups. Sweet, but goodness does it take a long time to walk around the neighborhood!
