1 Pork ribs with Dave's awesome homemade marinade. Pork is from Rolling Bay Farm - local farm friend!
2 Stretch math - or applied math - mentoring on Mondays
3 Picture sent to Daddy at work :)
4 Out for a jog - finally light enough in the morning so I can jog before boys get up. This is from Sunrise Drive - appropriately enough!
5 Spring has sprung for sure - look what's popping up!
6 Ok - now we are really on a roll - continuing to take pictures while out on jog. Peeked in on these little chicks at Bay Hay to see what they were doing at 6:40am :) EATING!
7 These are cherry trees down by Bay Hay.
8 And our magnolia! Back home - time to get boys up and dressed!
9 Bike jumping movie!
10 Here are a few favorite shots :)
14 Sam is a strong guy.
16 Ben very proud of himself!
19 Now for something very naughty...
20 A different angle, plus an interview.
21 Ben wanted in on the action.
22 This is how deep the excavation is!
23 On a hike at Green Mountain with friends April and Amy and her kids.
24 Silly boys!
25 Another A team!
26 This was a great time, thanks ladies!
27 Always horsing around, right?
29 Daddy blowing a whistle with a raisin box!
30 The little hobbits (or trolls?) loved hiding and scaring us!
32 Or were they going to the bathroom?
33 Overloaded with eggs! A few neighbors are coming by to buy eggs, enough so that I could switch to organic feed and the chickens can almost pay for their own food.
34 Out on a jog - pretty trees!
35 This is a reflection in a puddle.
36 Snapping pictures of things we like in the garden.
38 Ben really wants this. I ended up getting it for him because he really really helped me out during dissertation prep week for one of my clients. He let the chickens have recess while he guarded so that the little girls could eat in peace.
39 Over to the Burke Museum at UW to talk about geology. This is Sam's collection. He's identifying them and chatting away with staff.
40 He really loved the gems!
41 Lots of dinos, too!
45 Pretty impressive museum.
50 Now a brief tour of the UW campus. This is the library - the very quiet room. And this is a huge dictionary. Sam was pretty impressed!
51 Wonder if he'll be walking these grounds some day in 10 years?
53 Such fun to have a family visit to a college. Our first such. Sam was very intrigued with the campus layout - it reminded him of Balboa Park. He was curious that it was so big, and wonders just how much work it is to be in college.
