Independence, Wine & Sweet Baby Tate

We went wine tasting with David’s folks over in Hood River and had a swell time. The weather was SUPER hot, but somehow we still managed to consume large amounts of delicious wine. And cheese and meat.

teehee

And the next day we got pedicures and it was glorious! (David gets no polish because he is boring a man). P.S I LOVE how all the nail salons are using fresh files, buffers and toe-separators for every person now! I don’t mind spending the extra $2 to know that the file they’re using on me didn’t touch some fungi-ridden old lady foot but like, letsbereal cuz my feet ain’t winning any beauty contests either :).

Meira got a haircut! Look at this sweet girl.

I celebrated not only America’s day of independence but also Canada’s! The company I work for is based in Canada so I felt it only appropriate to celebrate by wearing a hockey jersey. Other options were a puff-painted shirt I would have had to make that said ” I (maple leaf) Maple Syrup!”

Apologies for thee most scraggly hair

I was also introduced to SPARKLING espresso from Portland Roasting and BALLS was it good! They put a little chocolate in it, and the slight effervescence is seriously delightful.

4th of July was up a few days later and we had QUITE the weekend. Part of it was spent at House Danielson (sorry, too much GOT) and the other half in Portland with David’s family. Here are some highlights.

Of course, Tate remains my tiny best friend. I meaaaaannnnnn…LOOK AT HIM.

p.s he has 4 teeth and the upper 2 are so cute and really far apart, as megan says “you could fit a whole other tooth in there.”

Here hims is with my Grandma Fran. She can’t remember much these days but she absolutely ADORES Tate and when she plays with him my heart cannot take the sweetness and I literally die  a little inside because it’s so stinkin’ cute.

Gary D + Tate. These two are completely hilarious together. They crack each other up. Chase one another around the living room and go for sweet walks together. Here we are at the Duck Pond, enjoying some bevs after playing put put.
