The Weekend

Jeremy and Pearl had their first full day alone together on Friday while I was working.  She gave him a hard time at first, but I'm pretty sure she had way more fun with him than on one of our typical days.  He took her for a little hike on Powell Butte.  He said she stared at the trees the whole time.  Based on the photo below, she loved it.
Pearl and I ran errands on Saturday.  She had an explosive poop all up her back at Target.  That was pretty fantastic.  After we were home and in clean clothes again, we headed to a wedding reception for a family friend.  He got married in Idaho so they had a Portland reception.  Pearl and I wore matching nautical stripes and she slept through the whole thing.
That night we went to a gathering at our friends house to chat about our neighborhood and the importance of place in our lives.  Our friends started a non-profit organization called Second Stories which is all about neighborhood transformation.  You can read about the organization here.  Anyway, most people had a fun time with friends from the neighborhood and from our church.  I mostly sat in their guest room dealing with a screaming baby.

On Sunday we walked to church and then had a little Super Bowl gathering at our house.  I managed to eat a lot of pound cake dipped in chocolate fondue and not watch any football. So, it was a success.

I hope you all had a great weekend and a fun week ahead!

And...since I have you here...Second Stories is having a benefit concert/art auction on Wednesday night at the Hollywood Theatre.  If you live in the Portland area, I would love to see you there!

  6. Love the pics, she did look like she had a fun time on her hike with dad. Cute matching stripes, and I remember many explosive Target messes too, a couple that ended up in new outfits, something about that place!

  8. Looove the nautical stripes. You look so pretty! Chocolate fondue dipped pound cake is WAY better than football! I stayed in a bedroom dealing with a screaming baby not too long ago at a gathering at someone's house...I think all of the noise was freaking him out...he's not used to a whole lot of noise at our house! Was little Miss Pearl wearing a disposable when she had the explosive poo?! I swear for a while there, it seemed like any time we would put a disposable on Holden, he would poop up the back of it...drove me insane...and thus, our love for cloth diapers deepened. ;)

  9. Beth Ann-
    It was a disposable. I swear, the cloth diapers hold in the poo 10 times better than the disposables do. I have never had a blow out with the cloth. Disposables are generally so much easier when we are out and about except in that type of situation!

  10. I absolutely love this post! Pearl has the most awesome parents : ) I love her smile in the top photo, I bet Jeremy was basking in the moment of fatherhood there! And you two beauties in your stripes, how fun! I'd love to come Wednesday, but Claire has volleyball practice in Gresham that night : ( Will there be others?

    xoxo Let's hang out soon!
