Hello Summer!

First off, Happy Father's day to all of the fantastic Dads and Grandpas out there! 
 A most special Happy Father's day to our own super wonderful guy who is an amazing Dad, Thanks for being there to push us on the swings, take wonderful care of us at home, feeds us delicious meals and being all around wonderful... we love you!
 We also finished up the school year this week.  Owen graduated from 1st grade and I graduated into Pre-K.  WOW!  Owen has grown so much in height, in his reading and math skills, with his friends, this year, we are really proud of him!
 When asked how he wanted to celebrate... he suggested little t for a baguette with butter and jam
 and to top it off we both got cookies!  Owen was a little melancholy about finishing first grade in the morning, seems a few of his friends are moving and he is not confident that we can wrangle play-dates with his best pal Aiden over the summer.  We are going to do our best buddy!  However this afternoon, he was doing great, he re-learned how to finger-knit and is completely absorbed.
 In fact, as our dear neighbor Pam has put her house on the market, we have started trying to spend as much time as possible with her before her new adventure begins, which means Owen wakes up at 6:30 am and says... can I go over to Pam's now?  He has to be held back until a reasonable hour!

 We got to spend a great morning in Sellwood celebrating Liam's 3rd birthday!  
 The rain finally passed and the sun came back out in time for a fantastic party!
 Everyone had a lovely time!
 Happy birthday Liam!
 We had a few hours down-time before heading over to Amelia's house for a great slip-n-slide party with a bunch of Owen's friends.  They were super nice and we had a really fantastic afternoon.
 with loads of wild playing outside and in!
 Today was Father's day, which is woefully short of pictures.  We grabbed one as we set Dad up with his Bagels with lox and all the fixings for breakfast.  We had a quiet morning then Dad and I went swimming together for the first time (I know I know... they sure have taken their sweet time getting me into the water) and we did great, I even put my face in a few times and went down the giant slide loads.  Mom started tackling painting, it took her most of the afternoon but at least the hallway is all done!  To keep us busy and to spend some QT together we went and saw Epic with Dad, and then after a great steak dinner, Owen got to go fishing for the evening.  They each got one fish!  Go Steves boys!
