Dumb and Dumber

For years my husband has always been known as "the guy who once cooked a grilled cheese on a flat top oven without using a pan". Dumb right? Well...I think I topped him on the "dumb things you can do" list this past Monday evening because this is a picture of what happens when...

you don't put your car in park (Yes you read correctly PARK!) while on a mountain. actually go over the mountain.
Lucky for me this trusty tree stopped my car from going any further

So what does a girl do when her car has hit a tree after rolling down a mountain?
Well...try to pull it out of course...but if that doesn't work... makes a great place for a group shot!
Dumb, dumb, dumb is all I have to say about this.

The Privileges of Being One

Everyone is always talking about how, in order to live the good life, people should "be one" with themselves and with the world around them. Brielle "became one" on May 11, and she has found many new joys in her "one-ness."
Playing in the pool by herself.

Driving an '09 Cozy Coupe (with a bumper sticker that says, "S$%# Happens ... in my diaper")

Helping a younger friend (Ellie) get out of her car seat.

Laughing at how much newborns (like Jonathan) sleep as compared to people who are "one."

Digging in to your own cake!! (She didn't get much past the strawberries)

Playing the piano with cousins (music that only grandparents could love)

Wearing an authentic Dutch costume at Tulip Time.
