strawberry pickin'

one of the best things about sherwood, oregon are all the berry picking farms near by! it has become something we look forward to and carly loves it, and i am guessing cierra is too! they dove right on in...

tea house

there is the cutest little tea house here in sherwood that carly and i love to go on "girl outings" for (herbal tea of course) called "the lavendar teahouse." carly loves "hot tea" but really its all the honey/sugar added to her hot "whatever" she is drinking! it is super cuteplace with nice china and fun hats for the girls to wear, and the BEST ever scones...the real reason i go!

carly's ballet recital

carly had her first ballet recital a few weeks ago, and she was so adorable! she really enjoyed it, and her class actually had the dance mostly memorized! carly did awesome dancing...she wasn't so excited for the pics, and of course would NOT pose for me, i was denied that privilege...but these are what i got! cute anyways! but she loves her ballet!

{she is: miss thang!}

{carly hair cut}

journal entry:

"Carly this last week, just cut her hair! She was cutting paper with her kid scissors and I went upstairs to put some things away and took longer than I should. I even thought, I should go downstairs and check on her with those scissors, she could be cutting her hair. Probably a prompting I didn't listen to. Carly came upstairs and told on herself, "Mommy, I cut my hair!" I was upset, "Oh no!" I acted devastated and she started crying. I wasn't mad just so sad and well, devastated! She felt so bad and then I had to fix what I did and calm her down. It could have been so much worse! It was only on the right side and most of her bangs are gone. She just doesnt have much hair to loose in the first place, and whatever precious hair she grows I want to keep there! We are now wearing a lot of hats!"

{trip to coast}

we just took a little overnighter to the coast and really had a blast! we stayed in lincoln city at "D SANDS," played on the beach, flew a kite, ate seafood, shopped at the awesome outlet, and checked out newport and its amazing's only an 1 1/2 hrs away, but it really felt like a mini vacation. we need to get out to the water more often...we love it!
