Last August, my sister (Ellie’s aunty) and my nephew (Ellie’s cousin) came to Oregon to visit us all.
During that time, we fit a lot in. We went to the Chinese Gardens, visited Powell’s, went to the coast, went up Mount Hood, enjoyed a jet boat ride on the Willamette and visited some wineries (naturally). Continue reading “Nicola & Max came to visit”
This 4th of July, we took a trip to MA and NH to visit family, attend a christening and enjoy the summer in New England.
While there, Ellie got to know her second cousins Addison, Mason and Emmerson much better and enjoyed all sorts of outings and events, like the 4th of July parade, Santa’s Village and she even got to sit in the cockpit of the plane that took her to Boston!

When Aunty Shelly was here, we went to the mall one day for a little retail therapy and stopped to have lunch at California Pizza Kitchen. Ellie was only too happy to sit with Aunty Shelly and draw. Continue reading “Lunch with Aunty Shelly”
We are fortunate enough to have Ellie’s Aunty Shelly (Michelle) staying with us at the moment and it’s fair to say that Ellie is having a blasty blast playing with her. Continue reading “Playing with Aunty Shelly”
Yesterday, Ellie saw Marti’s cousin gelling his hair, so she got stuck in too and let him give her a mohawk. It’s definitely the most impressive to date. Continue reading “A monster mohawk”
