most amazing thing ever.

I found this today on the blog "Oh So Beautiful Paper" and I believe I have seen it before. I find this to be the most amazing artist I have ever seen. Amazing. Wow. I am floored. I LOVE the 'angel' in the cage. . . Here is the link to the artist's website.
His name is peter callesen.

The weekend.

We decided to take a last minute out-of-town vacation. We headed up to stay with some friends in WA and were so glad that we did. We had a blast. Included in our weekend getaway, was:

Good food
good friends
good weather
good campfires
and of course,
good beer.

We spent a lot of time relaxing and I even got a pretty great sunburn! Thanks to Adam and Mandy for letting us have some time at their little slice of heaven. Here are a few pictures of the fun being had.

Sophia climbed this tree about 5 times, she loved it!

Dragging dad into the sprinkler, I am pretty sure he didn't fight too hard!

Cooper and Sophia

Mandy and the kiddos running through --
I think it is so cute that Cooper and Sophia are holding hands! They really enjoyed each other.

late mother's day

I found a couple of great things on mother's day -- but since it was my day, I didn't want to take the time to post. SO, now that the day is over and work has restarted, here is a post for all the mom's. We love you SOOoooo much!

From a man's point of view:

This is a post that I found on one of my new favorite blogs soulemama. Her husband filled in for a day and he did a wonderful job: HERE is the direct link to his post. I loved this so much, I copied it to a text document so I can read it over and over.

On our end, we had a great Mother's day. I was surprised at work by my love and our daughter, with flowers in hand. We went to lunch and it was great. On Mother's day we started the day at my mom's for brunch and ended at Travis's brothers for BBQ. We had great company and great conversation. We went to the park and I realized it had been YEARS since I have played catch. I loved it. Here is a picture of Sophia and her cousin Logan -- that's my girl, riding the pegs!

Happy Late Mother's day all you mama's.
