In case you haven't heard

Ali is now three! She was very excited to have a birthday, although she was a bit bummed when she discovered that she had to be three for an entire year before she turned four.

Her day in pictures:
Helping to bake her cake.

Getting ready to blow out the candles on her cake. She decorated the cake by herself!

Checking out her birthday balloons.

Showing Daddy her presents.

Opening more presents!

Let us count the ways...

that we love Oregon. We went up to visit the Strand family for a short little trip, leaving Sunday after church and coming back home on Wednesday. We packed our days with fun and we all fell in love with Oregon.

Our love affair with Oregon included:
blueberry picking

visiting the windy coast

as well as eating seafood, playing at the pool, and enjoying wonderful company.

Now, we are preparing ourselves for a birthday...and a little girl very excited about turning three.
