Tulip Festival

Saturday we went to the Tulip Festival near Beaverton. It was so gorgeous, despite the rain. But I guess the rain should always be expected living in this state.





We also stopped by the Portland Temple, which was also beautiful, and also surrounded by tulips.

This little man is now 3 months, and tipping the scale at 16 pounds and easily fitting into 6 months size clothing. He must be sneaking in food behind my back because I swear he's not eating enough from me to weigh this much. He's down to 6 feedings a day, 20 mins. a feeding. Not unusual, right? He's our little chunk.


Harrison update: We email daily. Thank goodness for modern day technology! I can't imagine corresponding through snail mail. He has visited the pyramids, and the Valley of the Kings. I needed Wikipedia for that one. He's loving it over there, although the nine hour time difference gave him quite the jet lag. He is currently staying at a hotel overlooking the Nile. A little surreal, ya think? Pictures to come soon! (As soon as I get some from him, that is) I love and miss you, Mr. Smith.

Gosh, I can't even imagine how it hard it must be to be away from your hubby for the summer. But it's an awesome opportunity for him! And good thing you have family to be with! You are so optimistic and happy and such a good example to me. Thanks, Christine!

All of these photos are just so gorgeous! I love you and your little chunk! heehee! And I have to say that I am ridiculously jealous of your husband's travels. I have always wanted to see the pyramids and Egyptian ruins. I'm excited that you are going to post his pictures!

Hey -- I just saw your comment. I did download the Lightroom program and Photoshop and Bridge and a bunch of other cool programs! Lightroom is awesome...I think I need to buy it for future photo editing! Thanks for the suggestion :)
