i think probably the best thing so far about living out west is the weather we have had these past few weeks. we have heard (what we now consider) horror stories of the snow and COLD in the midwest & east coast. not to rub it in (though i am), but we have had an amazing early spring. think clear blue skies (and lots of stars at night), sunshine, high 50s-low 60s, windows down, going for hikes, not needing a coat (common words from greta these days when i ask her to put her coat on- "no thanks mom, i'm fine, i don't need one" and she's right!) kind of weather- it's fabulous! what is also fabulous is a little girl turning 3, a trip to seattle & a baby girl who is SO close to walking we could spend all day just watching her. although life is crazy a lot of the time, we do have it good.

calla enjoying herself at greta's party
greta sporting her new birthday outfit (she has the matching outfit for bitty baby- kinda sickening!)
if you love seattle, you will love this picture...it's glorious!
calla loved the swings...even with her arms tucked in!
the older girls!
the younger girls (nice nose picking greta)
it's hard to get a good picture of 4 kids, ages 5 and under, so i decided to throw in the worst one! :)
