As we came out of our December sickness into the new year, we spent a fair amount of time cosied up indoors. We didn’t let that stop us though, and we made sure to get out for the Portland Winter Light Festival. Continue reading “January – March 2018”
Sadly, December was full of a lot of sickness in our house. Everyone caught the flu and spent a few weeks recovering from it. But nonetheless, we tried to make the most of our first Christmas in Oregon.
There was baking, building snowmen, tubing, Christmas trains, Santa, and of course, Santa. Continue reading “December 2017”
These past two weeks, I’ve had family visiting from the UK. With a view to ensuring that they saw as much of the PNW as possible, we would go places that we might ordinarily give second thoughts to taking Jack to.
However, I am so glad that we did because one day, I wanted to take my family hiking in the Gorge, so we headed for Beacon Rock and I told Jack that we were going to climb it. Continue reading “Jack: my hiking buddy”
We live in such a cool place. The local government puts on a Big Truck Day every year, where kids get to tour and sit in all sorts of big trucks, like cranes, dump trucks, fire trucks, garbage trucks and 18-wheelers. Jack was in Heaven!

In August, Aunty Nicola and cousin Max were kind enough to visit us from England.
It really felt like a long trip, because we did so much every day that we really made the most of our time.
There was a jetboat ride on the Willamette, wine tasting, waterfalls, beaches, mountains, lakes, roses, playing around, snuggling, barbecues, stories and more. Continue reading “A visit from Aunty Nicola and Max”
As autumn gets into full swing, we still made sure to get out of the house, rain or shine. Continue reading “October – November 2017”

Here’s a variety of photos from April to June this year. Continue reading “April – June 2017”
As was the case in January, it’s been a bit manic lately with our move to Portland, so we haven’t had much time to do updates on the website here.
But, rather than deprive you all of Jack’s cuteness, here’s another little compilation from the last couple of months. Continue reading “February – April 2017”
There haven’t been many updates lately because we’ve been busy moving to our new home in Portland, OR. Expect more about that in another post later.
The other day, we had the difficult task of going to a wine release party at one of favourite local wineries. The kids were so well behaved and let us enjoy ourselves and while they were there, they meet there resident dog, Sigmund. Continue reading “Doggy? Doggy! [VIDEO]”
The four of us went to Starbucks at the weekend as we occasionally do for a breakfast date. What I didn’t know is that while I was in the bathroom changing Ellie’s diaper, Marti was snapping some ridiculously cute photos with Jack. Continue reading “Silly faces at Starbucks with Mama”
