Rare

 Pumpkin head super hero... that's how I roll people.



Silly faced radish eater....that's how Owen rolls.
  

Had a great weekend...

Started with a nice Friday with Mom... Looking for family to face-time with (Grace's favorite past-time)

 enjoying the sunshine a bit,

 running errands.  \

After picking Owen up from school an wu shu, we grabbed a cone at our new favorite ice cream joint... Cloud City!

Excellent after-school snack place.

we followed up a super amazing art-show at Owen's school.


 (Owen's was the top goldfish)

(and the bottom right purple flower...

oil pastels (new favorite medium) and water colors)
I really loved seeing all of the clay and paintings that the students had put together.

We also got our faces painted,

which was so very exciting!
 
very exciting.....

Saturday we hit the farmer's market for a lovely morning, ran into our friends Alice and Henry.  We had a nice walk, and spent the rest the day cleaning house and fussing around the yard.




Today though... today was rare!  I mean, in what world does a 2-year old get to DRIVE a BACKHOE!!!! Seriously?  Owen had mentioned such happenings before, but it was real and so very cool!  We had a great time, met up with Andy and Alex on and off.  I got to DRIVE, did I mention that?  Owen really got into it this year and actually popped a wheelie, it was pretty cool. 















Speaking of rare... it was rainy, cloudy... not actually uncommon in Portland, but we were bummed 'cause we were looking forward to the eclipse... got the cool glasses and everything.  Turns out things cleared up just enough for us to get a view of it.  So cool... Owen was shouting his excitement to the whole neighborhood. The dogs were all going nuts.  It was pretty fun! 








Because the sun was behind the clouds we actually were able to take a photo of the partial eclipse.
