It's not my's the batteries...

That's what I'm blaming my month long hiatus from blog posting on. The batteries died, I thought we had more, I'd briefly look for them, get side tracked, forget about the batteries, go shopping, be driving home from shopping, "Shoot! We forgot to buy batteries, oh well, next time.", Repeat. That's whats been going on for the last month. Other than that...let's see...what have we been up to...

Eden has been spending a lot of time playing on the computer

We LOVE going to the park!!! This playground is actually an early childhood development school- so it's the PERFECT size for Eden! We had a picnic lunch here too- it was a really fun day!

Eden put her pajamas on all by herself! I think she was pretty proud!

Dustin FINALLY went biking and he had a bloody good time! I wanted to take more pictures of the injuries (yes there were more) but this is where the batteries died.

Last Saturday we went to OMSI (The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry). It was SO much fun. Eden had a blast! They even had an area for little explorers ages 0-6 to run around and play. We will definitely be going back (especially if we get approved for a free membership, fingers crossed!)

Eden and her ears.

This is what Eden will look like in 30 advice...marry young! Joking- Isn't it funny though!


She liked the snake too.

This was hilarious! Eden and Dustin were at the dinosaur rubbing station making a picture. When they were finally done Dustin says "Here Eden, let's take home your pretty picture. We can put it on the fridge!" Eden takes it, walks over to the recycling bin, and throws it in! I guess it wasn't that important to her!

More fishies!

Always side by side :)

Eden could not get out of here soon enough. Turns out she does NOT like the feel of sand between her toes! We thought it was pretty funny!

Our attempt at a family picture.

Our address says we live in Portland, but we are right on the border between Portland and Gresham. So this is CSI's Gil Grissom posing with our little Baby Gill Gresham!

Later that beautiful day we decided to go for a long overdue bike ride. Can you believe we've lived here for 6 months and this is the first time we went riding. Eden didn't take a nap that day because she was too wired from the museum, so inevitably on the car ride over to the trail, she fell asleep. We picked her up and strapped her in the chariot anyway. It was like Weekend at Bernies! She was just so out of it! She woke up for the last half of the ride, which we were happy about because we saw a raccoon, a bunny, dogs, horses, sheep, tons of animals. She loved it! I was just happy I could still ride a bike a 27 I had Dustin document it!


  1. wow! you guys have been busy! (..not that kind of busy!) Eden is so cute! where did you guys bike at?

  2. i love your posts. you're such a cute family!!

  3. yay for batteries!!! i love the one of eden with her jammies - so stinkin cute! you guys always make me excited for when beckam gets old enough to enjoy all of the fun stuff you do with eden!

  4. Eden's hair is getting so long! So cute! I also love the jammies picture! She actually did really good! Portland looks so fun! Find us a job up there! You look great! Hope you are feeling ok.

  5. kinsey-i was just laughing out loud at this was so funny because I can hear you saying all the words and I almost woke the boys up with my laughter. But, on a serious note I am buying you a helmet. 85% of bike riding head injuries are preventable. I'm glad you could still balance!
    again, cute words and pics

  6. It's official we are blog buddies now! Oh and you guys beat us on the list of activities...busy bees!!
