A Slice of My Life – Week 32

August 14, 2012

It used to be that you could guarantee sun in Seattle after July 5th.  It would take us a while to get to summer but when we did, it was consistently beautiful and sunny and not too warm until the middle of October.  Nowadays, we never know what we are going to get.  Last week, there was plenty of sun and we took full advantage.

Running through the sprinkler.

Beach time.

Being artists at the frozen yogurt place.

Graham is a very smiley kid.  He chuckles all the time.  But he doesn’t give a full belly laugh all that often.  My brother and his brother are the best at making him laugh.  This is probably my favorite picture I have ever taken of him.

The tooth fairy visited our house twice last week.  Once for Spencer and once for Graham.

Ankle boots!

I find summer produce to be very inspiring.

I’ve totally fallen in love with this recipe.  I will be making it for the third time this week.  I’ll share!

Super simple, kind of expensive, super delicious.

Date night at Palace Kitchen.  I love the bar there.  It was high on my list of Places I Need to Eat Before We Move.  Sadly, my pasta was not near as good as I wanted it to be.  Great night and great company though.

I bought that weather vane for Randy for our 5th anniversary.  It is his favorite of all the gifts I have given him.  Because it sits on our detached garage, we have been gazing out the window at it for five years.  Of course it had to come off so we can put it on the new house.

Not only are we saying goodbye to family, friends, house, and school – but we have to say goodbye to this beloved painting by our friend Erik Hall.  Our new house is smaller with less wall space.  Fortunately we have another of his paintings that we will enjoy forever.

  1. Yes please do share that recipe! Anything that’s Dana-adored is almost certainly Joanne-adored as well. :)

    Ack sad about the painting. I couldn’t really imagine giving something like that away. I’d be so attached.
