One title just doesn't cover it! How about... "It's been a beautiful week!"

Woah, it's been a big beautiful fun and friend-filled week. We started off on a great note with a quick visit from Caden and Cascade. On Monday we met up at Burgerville for dinner and they came home with us and spent the night before they had to head back home. We had a lovely evening with them, including some good bath and book time. Most of the rest of our week was pretty cold and rainy, so that meant a lot of time spent inside, but we have made up for it this glorious weekend. Friday was a great day at home with Mom as the sun finally came out, we actually spent a lot of time in the front yard diggin holes (my current favorite past-time). Wally, Dad's fishing buddy came over that evening for dinner. We really clicked and I had a great time showing him all of my clothes and toys, one at a time in a regular parade throughout the evening. He was so funny and would make me smile and laugh! Saturday started with a sunny, but chilly morning at the Farmer's Market. I am soo glad the market is open again! Mom finally found the strawberry plants she had been looking for, and we met up with Val and Joaquin for a little tour of the market, a cookie treat and dancing with a bluegrass band. After a great morning, we headed up to the Pearl district for lunch at the Deschutes brewery and a bunny-hop, where a lot of shops had treats for kids who hopped on by with an easter basket. I thought the hop was pretty fun, particularly getting loads of stickers and a bit of chocolate! However, with the amazing day warming up, I really had a blast at the park where there was a big, fun water-fountain and some cool sculptures to crawl on. By the time we got home I was too wired to nap, so I helped Dad install a drip sprinkler system in the front yard and helped Mom plant her strawberry plants out. The weather just kept getting better and better. Sunday was a party-day! Two of my dear friends had their 3rd birthday parties to attend! We started in the morning at Sophia's house for her big birthday party. We had a great time playing with her gardening tools in the garden and digging for worms, lots and lots of worms! It had been a month or so, it was nice to see all of my friends from our art group and enjoy some time outside! We then headed over to Jantzen Beach Carousal for Kennedy's party. We got a lot of time on the Carousal, where I got to ride next to Charles and Mitchell, go really really fast, and sing Yankee Doodle and holler Yeee HAW! It was fun to see my school friends out side of the class. My folks thought it was so nice to see all of the other parents and have some time to chat a little bit, plus they thought we were all so cute together. That's a picture of Quincy sharing her gum with all of us, most of us for the first time. That was, count them, TWO princess themed parties in a row! We headed home for a short nap, then dug more holes in the front yard and blowing bubbles. We ended our awesome, beautiful weekend with an impromptu dinner date with Cat, Chris and Benjamin on our Deck. What a perfect day to open the deck back up for the season. I spent most of the evening in my dragon costume. We had some good falafel and great company!
