The little man loooooooves mommy's glasses! Kept him busy on the plane :)
Flying to and from Washington, both Brooks and I were excited beyond reason!!!
As we were about to land at the Portland Airport my heart jumped thinking about seeing my family!
Yet after saying our goodbyes to my sweet family yesterday, we couldn't wait to see our sweetheart/daddy! :)
Washington was filled with such fun memories...
Going to Burgerville...twice :)
Making the most amazing blueberry muffins (twice)...will share recipe tomorrow!
Finding Corrie on her working route (she's a pest control salesman, is she not so stinkin' cute in her uniform??) and bringing pizza for a little sidewalk picnic...
It was AMAZING to see Kersie again! She was absolutely glowing!! Talking and laughing with her made it feel like those 18 months had been just a couple weeks :) And Lauren (another old college roomie) was there too! Brooks loved Kersie too :) And she was so thoughtful to even get him an I *heart* NY shirt...so cute!
Eating Tillamook icecream and watching movies almost every night :)
Going to the Portland Temple with my Dad, Mom, and Corrie...it was practically perfect...just missing my forever sweetheart :)
Fires on the back porch for s'mores and roasting hot dogs...everything tastes better over a crackling fire :)
Listening to Kersie share her testimony and give her homecoming talk at church. I'll be posting more about his on Sunday :)
Happy 8th Birthday to my little cousin Ammon!
A very successful thrifting trip...50% off Mondays...yes please :) And Brooks was a bit of a sleepy thrifter ;) But woke up just in time to play with some fun toys with Grandma, thanks for the toys Mom!
A little trip into Portland...love that city. Brooks LOVED the fountains and giant chess set :)
While looking for granite for my parents' kitchen, Brooks got a "ride" on a fork lift! His favorite part was the horn ;)
Sushi with friends!! Posting more about this later :)
Games...Brooks LOVED playing games with Grandma :) Be it Scrabble, tossing balls, or chase...there was LOTS of chase :)
Cars with Grandpa!
Brooks was a just waking up from a nap when we gave my Dad/little B's Grandpa our belated Father's Day present...Brooks painted it just for Grandpa Stum :)
We said our goodbyes and raced through the airport to make our flight...it was a great flight, and after I was shown such kindness by 3 different people, helping me around the airport with my bags and even making room on a bench for me and my sleeping babe in arms so I could rest while waiting for my in-laws to pick us up (Adam was in a bishopric meeting).
And it turned out Adam had his parents call me as if they were on their way to pick us up...but really Adam surprised us! WE WERE SO HAPPY TO SEE HIM!!!!!!
It was such a sweet trip! But as always, it's wonderful to be home :)
