June has been really busy already. And before bombarding you guys with SO MANY PHOTOS, I am going to do two posts.
Here are a few crappy phone photos. For my birthday I went to brunch with a couple dear friends at Tusk. Then it was followed by a local plant nursery where I picked out lovely plants! Birthday weekend was going to include a family trip to Vashon Island, but, my dad unexpectedly had surgery, so we stayed put. It was a very emotional weekend for me. It’s hard being far from family in these situations. Praise God my dad is doing great now.
Another weekend, we also explored some new trails with some friends. Curtis and I had to stop by drive through coffee at like 3pm, because life with young children…..WE ARE SO SO TIRED. This is Ev’s bestie. We love this family a ton.
On my actual birthday Curtis took me out and we listened to music, had yummy sangrias, and talked the whole time. The little things.
I love this sweet little friendship that is forming. I am still hanging out with this family for our weekly English lessons.
We had our last preschool Co-op Day. We celebrated with a waffle bar!
I was standing in the kitchen and saw my kids. I had to take a photo. Love seeing all THREE at the table together. So unreal.
The state of my house usually.
Meal times are my favorite.
Loved this little scene. Bread rising, strawberry shrubs in the making, and dehydrated kale for snacks. I love the kitchen.
Made some shrubs for canning club.
His first summer popsicle. Almond butter banana pops!
And we went strawberry picking. I took all three kids by myself and we picked 6ish pounds! That weekend I canned lots of jam (strawberry rhubarb, strawberry honey thyme, and strawberry lemon preserves). Look at this baby!
We’ve been going to our garden every day. We harvested our first things…RADISHES! I may have screamed. Growing something is amazing!
While I am weeding or watering, the kids are usually running around the property. Running up and down the hill picking raspberries!
I told Curtis to take a picture of the kids and I in front of our first garden. I’m such a sappy mom.
I have no idea what I am doing, but hopefully things will continue to grow!
This picture give me all the feels. My babies! Garden and humans. 🙂
Ok, so I may have waited too long to pick the radishes. They were spicy! So I pickled them and it mellowed the flavor. I’ve added the pickled radishes into everything…salads, sandwiches, and yesterday it was a great addition to my soba noodle cold salad.
Saturday morning breakfast is an event. Sourdough pancakes. YESSS.
I found Ev climbing our fence. of course.
Father’s day weekend. Breakfast on the patio, hike, donuts, and then we had friends over for scotch and pie. That evening we had a thunderstorm. It was so cool! It rained off and on all evening. All the kids just ran around barefoot in the rain. It was so great. Thankful for Curtis. The best dad and partner.
