I'm proud they are gay. Gay Pride Parade is whooping it up downtown. I had an errand to run downtown not knowing about this. Thank goodness Andrew could loop around in the car and pick me up.

It was fun to drive downtown for drinks and a movie with new friends. We saw Before Midnight in the Egyptian Theater in Capitol Hill. The theater is switching hands so this is the last movie before it closes. I loved the first two movies in the series so much, but tonight's movie left me on the fence.

What a gorgeous sunset we just saw for solstice. We went down to the beach for burgers and bike rides. We saw jellyfish poking along under the pier. That was a bit alarming for me. I seriously fear those things ever since watching a documentary on killer jellyfish. Tomorrow is the famous Fremont Solstice parade where hundreds of naked, painted people ride bikes down a parade route. I think we will skip this year and wait until the kids can fully enjoy the humor of all the nakedness.

Today is a Junuary day (as they call it here). A checker used the word gloomy today and I snapped back at him. I reminded him that he had seen the sun yesterday and that this is a day of beauty and should be celebrated. We agreed to disagree.
What a great day to plant cactus, right? I have fallen head over heels for mimicry plants. Little succulents that look like little butts. Need I say more?
Will my tiny tuckus plants get the sun they need? It's in the stars.

My mom left this book with me before she headed back to Sacramento. I was skeptical at first because I dislike fiction. I disliked this book in the beginning because it was fictional and added another level of emotional attachment to my already emotionally consumed life. I got absorbed in the book and really enjoyed watching my kids play in the backyard while I put my feet up on my patio furniture, reading in the raindrops. I'm done now. Thanks mom for the good read. I have a familiar appreciation for my own emotional happenings and look forward to getting back to it, and only it, tomorrow. It is that comforting feeling like getting home from a vacation.

Today we celebrated the dad of our household. I hosted a brunch with two new sets of neighborhood parents (7 kids total between us) and then we turned into lazy blobs. We went to Home Depot and then Mexican food. I love this kombucha makin' man. Our farm is a dream come true and I thank him for being my Superman.

My littlest is 1 year old today. She just walked into my favorite window of child development. Literally, she walked just yesterday for the first time. I love this sweet juice. I love that she has no words yet (just like her brother). I love that she is sharp (just like her other brother). I love that she looks just like her daddy (and brother and aunties). I love that she: climbs everything, screeches like a girl, hugs dollies, makes girl sounds, asks to be put to sleep at night, and gets a mouthful of teeth all at once (unlike anyone else in the family). She is her own Piper Hallie Kay and I love her oh so much for that. I put her to bed and she smelled just like cake. I will gobble up all her yumminess and
dough-y-ness for the rest of her life.
We climbed to the top of the Space Needle for her birthday adventure.
