Birthday Express @ Platform 3

Somebody is three years old!

Well, almost. We'll be in the Great Northwest for his actual birthday, which is a couple weeks away still, but we really wanted to squeeze in a "cousin party" and this was the week that fit.

It all started with these invites...


And here's our bundle of passengers! It was a fun afternoon...

Garden Fare

Yesterday I gathered a mini harvest from my garden.
A small handful of peas, a few cherry tomatoes, some basil and two baby carrots. 


Well, actually, there were four carrots, but my two year old was so excited about them, he insisted on having a couple, exclaiming, "Look Mama! I being like Bunny Bugs!"
I was so pleased he was enjoying raw carrots that I let him snatch half of my already small harvest...

Cousin Fun

After a short trip to visit Riley's grandmother and then a storm-induced 5-day internet fast, I'm both more aware of my dependance on the world wide web, and simultaneously very thankful to be back online!

We took a short visit to Lynchburg after school let out, and enjoyed some pretty serious cousin fun at what we fondly refer to as the "Wacky Walker Hotel." And with seven Walker cousins, Asher and Grayson had all the cousin fun they could want, 24 hours a day!

Here's Asher, Ian (Jude), and Knox. 

These guys (and Grayson as well) have years of good times together ahead of them! 
Four boys less than 3 years apart. 
Oh Boy!
