I am kind of late in getting this post up since I took these pictures last Friday. But I was inspired after reading my dear friend Kristen's blog entry entitled "Walks This Week". I too took lots of walks last week during the sunny but crisp days we had. I finally brought my camera along last Friday on my hour long walk. These pictures represent some of what I saw. Thank you Kristen for writing such beautiful words and taking some incredible pictures!

I've taken Riley swimming twice now with some friends that I met from our childbirth class that Tyler and I took while I was pregnant. We were in the pool on Thursday playing with our babies and chit chatting when I noticed that Riley had fallen asleep in my arms! The other girls and I started laughing because it truly was comical to see Riley sound asleep with her little arm up next to her head, as if she were sleeping cozy in her bassinet. She was either extremely bored with our conversation or she was reverting back to her days in the womb. Either way, it was pretty funny. If you look closely you can see her asleep in my arms (she's the one in the yellow bathing suit in the middle).
Second funny thing that happened just last night...
After dinner last night Tyler changed Riley's diaper then took her in the car to pick up a movie for us. While they were gone I kept thinking how nice it was to be able to relax and have a few moments to myself, knowing she was in good hands. When they got home Tyler handed Riley to me and mentioned that she seemed really sweaty and maybe had a wet diaper again. I laid her down on the changing table, started unbuttoning her pajamas and quickly realized that she seemed "sweaty" because she was not wearing a diaper! Somehow it had slipped Tyler's mind to put a new diaper on her after he took the dirty one off! We both laughed so hard we thought we too were going to pee our pants! Poor thing, she was just laying there happy as can be in her urine-soaked pajamas while we had a great laugh. Next time Dad is in charge I'm thinking I might need to do a double-check...

The rest of the weekend was spent laying around the house, watching old Friends episodes, eating and taking a long walk. It was very restful and so fun to get away and see Vashon. Thanks girls for the fun weekend.

Bjorn on Christmas Day playing a tune for us. Jon, Athena and Bjorn came over for Christmas brunch and we had a great time eating and hanging out.
Happy New Year to everyone! Hope your Christmas was as wonderful as mine. We're heading off to Spokane on Thursday morning to spend the weekend with family and friends. It will be Riley's first big adventure across the mountains. Let's hope she sleeps the whole way! love, eliz
