Summer has officially arrived. Today it's supposed to hit ninety. We've been soaking up the sun (and playing with Instagram on Spencer's phone).

Wishing I had an iPhone so I could do this with my pictures. (Images here and here).


Yesterday while playing at Sugar House Park, we met two brothers . . . Van, age five, and Gus, one year. It was a fun coincidence.

Megan's Baby Shower

My good friend Megan is expecting her first little one next month (it's a girl). On Saturday I hosted a baby shower for her in my parents backyard. A few months ago I had seen this strawberry party and loved the idea of a brunch, so I went with it.We had warm crepes complete with fresh berries and creme fraiche. Cake pops and tiered donut cakes adorned the serving table. I picked up the fabric for the tablecloths at a local store and followed these instructions for the mobiles. For the favors I used clear 3x3 boxes, filled them with strawberry-banana gum balls, and tied them off with bakers twine.The party was a huge success. Thanks to all who helped with the setup, cooking, etc., I couldn't have pulled it off without you. Good luck on your upcoming adventure Megs!
