First day in the pool

and it was chilly. Very, very chilly. Ready to go. It looks like Blake could use a haircut.  In fact, all three of us need a haircut and one of us desperately needs her roots dyed.  But it so pleasant to have the time to do it.  Ahh summer, I love you so.

Blake and I have done some extensive research on the subject.  Through much trial and error we have decided that Gazillion bubbles are the most consistently good bubbles we have tried.

Naked Blaked

A few days ago Blake and I made some peanut butter balls, which were shaped like peanut butter pancakes, but yummy nonetheless.  So yummy that I wanted to share them with the neighbours rather than eat them all in one go.  It was quite late and Blake was either pre bath or post bath naked, … Continue reading »

I spent the weekend in Hong Kong with some fantastic friends.  It was my second time away from Blake.  It was hard to leave, and I thought I would feel sad and awful all weekend long.  I didn’t.  I had an absolutely brilliant time, and so did Blake and his daddy. Although I was not … Continue reading »
