Since my last entry, we went to a spice factory and we took advantage of the week of free admission to the National Parks. We also went to the botanical gardens and we are going back on Friday to see the butterfly exhibit.

We are taking Alex to have his picture taken tonight. I need to have everything ready when Gabe gets home so we can leave right away. I guess I should get started.


Those pictures are pretty. Looks a lot different than our botanic gardens here!

I just now read my first book since giving birth to Boyd. Pretty sad, huh?!

Oh, my...you're photo's are lovely.
Good luck on your goal to read more.
I get so very distracted and I have trouble finishing books. It embarrasses me because my husband is so good at reading (he has a PhD in English). I did finish Molly Ringwalds, Getting The Pretty Back. I read it in one night and I enjoyed it so much. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. It meant a lot to me.


I might have to check with Boyd's doctor about tubes. I will see how the summer goes. He has only had 2 or 3 ear infections, but that last one just lasted forever!

Thanks for the compliments on my pictures. I am taking pictures for a newborn tomorrow and I am so nervous I can't concentrate on anything. ugh!
