Nora seemed pretty pleased with it, and got right to playing and rearranging furniture.

Towards the end of our trip, Nora had her second birthday. We had a few little presents for her throughout the day, and she was eager to finally be on the receiving end.
My sister Miriam and her husband Marc were kind enough to let us crash their house for the party, and set up the backyard with a fun inflatable pool. We had a nice low-key afternoon, and Nora enjoyed opening a few more presents before a delicious barbeque. One of the presents was this tutu I made with a headband and a few tulle spools.
favorite color palette source to find a fun scheme, using the red as a guide. I just happened to find one with that natural wood color AND pink in it! I bought two little color samples for the teal and pink, then used some yellow paint I already had on hand. So other than it being a little more time intensive, it was a pretty cheap and easy project.

My kids are lucky enough to have four of their eight great-grandparents still living. We had a wonderful time visiting with my Mom's parents and seeing all the ambitious things they've been up to. They still keep up their yard to host lots of wedding receptions for their grandchildren.

The next night, Grandma and Grandpa brought out UNO Attack, which was a hit!

To kick off the week with my family, we started with a campout near Jordanelle. In true vacation form, our little family essentially showed up, and had tents, sleeping bags and meals waiting for us. Thanks again, Mom for making it happen!
Before moving on to the last part of the trip at my parents house, I thought I'd add a few more of the good ones at Paul's.
