Family trip in Washington, DC!

Here's Part 2 of our first big trip--actually being in Washington, DC. (Part 1 was our flying experience) I booked us at the Hampton Inn near the Convention Center. It was pretty near to two Metro stations, and since that was our only mode of transport, it was very important. Back when I was traveling... Continue Reading →

Flying with Twin Toddlers

We have just completed our first plane trip with our 2.5 year old boys, which obviously makes me a top expert in the field of traveling with toddlers! Haha, obviously that's a joke. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the long weekend went overall, and wanted to share some tidbits in case they're... Continue Reading →

Clark County Fair, with Twins

Two weekends ago, we decided to brave the Clark County Fair. It was our first big fair experience, and it was certainly an adventure! First, thank goodness we brought the stroller. (I recently got a double umbrella stroller, which is perfect for this kind of thing!) We weren't sure if we would need it, because... Continue Reading →

Monday Cuteness

Last night we had one of those major moments where you just go Awwwwwwwwww but you can't quite put into words the 'aw'-ness that you feel as your heart expands and melts. (We actually have this fairly often when they do things like spontaneously give each other a hug, or tell one of us that... Continue Reading →

Once again we had an epic family Fourth of July! We started off with our traditional holiday photo: So last year, we picked cherries and then went to Timberline. The year before, we went to Timberline and then on a little hike to waterfall. This year, we did all three! We started out by picking... Continue Reading →

Toddler Talk!

I think one of the best things about having toddlers is hearing their little voices, the cute ways they have of speaking, their quirks as they learn to talk. And having twin toddlers means that we get to hear them actually talk to each other--our boys totally have conversations! It's adorable and awesome and we're... Continue Reading →

Two and a Half!

Our sweet boys are 2.5! I'm not sure if much has 'changed' since they turned two, but they've definitely grown--physically, socially, developmentally. They're still a lot of fun (and a total handful sometimes, too, of course). Right now, if I had to guess their future occupations based on their current favorites, I think M would...

Mother’s Day Giveaway!

Hi friends, I try not to 'cross the streams' here, but I am really excited about the giveaway I'm running through my photography website. It's a message that I feel strongly about, as you know. (Plus I collaborated with someone who is also a former NYC teacher/blogger who moved to Portland the same time we... Continue Reading →
