i spent the last two days prepping & painting it and i'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. the color is suppose to be the exact same as the front door, but they look a bit different. maybe bc the door was painted last summer and painting on concrete is different than wood. either way, it looks much better than what it used to look like...chipped away baby blue paint...yuck.
martha & henry came for a visit last week and stayed the night. it was really fun to have them. although trying to get out of the house with a 4 week old and 7 month old was a minor miracle! if one wasn't eating then the other needed a nap or diaper change...we managed to get out for a nice walk and coffee along the water, walked through a few shops downtown, ran a few errands and even saw a movie.
riley made a new friend - ninabelle, or nina to most people. nina is almost 3 years old and is my friend mitzi's (from high school!) daughter. they were up visiting from CA, so we got to have our babies meet, as well as meet nina's younger sister, jolene. no pictures of jolene...just this cute one of these two new friends
