cherry harvest









Cherry harvest is one week of fruit after one year of my dads hard labor in the orchard. Its a time of hard work and celebration for our family. I was very sad to not be working this year :( I love being out there in the trees and Speaking Spanish and developing relationships with the same co-workers year after year.

No crying except when he got splashed for the first time...
He soaked it all in and seemed to like the swimming.

Im a tall astronaut




I laugh every time we put him in his carseat and he extends his neck. We call him our astronaut.

Today was Elias' 2 week apt.
He weighed 9 lbs 12 oz... he gained over a lb. since his mother baby check up 10 days ago!
He is over the 95% for height (length) and average for everything else!
I'm so proud of him.

Auntie Dayna's 33rd
















Today we spent some time with Elias' cousins at Auntie Dayna's 33rd birthday party.
Elias had met everyone but Timmy, who is pretty enthusiastic about everything. Meeting his one and only cousin was no exception.
