gotta go.

a love for cars is nothing new for this family.
it runs in our blood.
like sweet tea.
coconut cake.
and pickles.
yes, I said pickles.

the Grand Prixe is in town 
so we went downtown
to see a real racecar.

trent inspected every inch of it.

but he could find no words. 
other than 
belted out in a goofy voice.
while bending at the hip.

oh, I love that kid.

the good ole days.

we are an entertaining family.
I must say.
the type of people you'd like to just sit back and watch, 
and giggle!
just to kind of see it happen.

to see trent at teeball.
I am not even sure he realizes there are two teams and 
an entire organized sport taking place around him.

or me. 
chasing dust bunnies around our home.
while breastfeeding. 
my hair tossed up in pins and ties.
and my clothes smothered in an assortment of
homemade baby purees.

there's time out.
there's tears.
there's trains. cars. and little mans.
and learning how to finally ride that tricycle.

dirty diapers. 
getting cozy and watching max and ruby.
and the constant sounds of 
a teething babe.

singing. a harmonica.
and reading the same books over.
and over.
and over.

potty training.
rewarding with organic gummy bears.
teaching a little one how to make homemade orange juice.
and that you can't leave a mess on the countertops.

long walks as a family.
1-4 naptime.
and a labrador that likes to dig.

our life is a bit of a mess.
trent has told me so.

but I am quite certain this will be the time
we look back on.
and our hearts will swell.

because right now we are living
 in what we will someday refer to as 
the good ole days.

we needed a place for
the many drinks. mugs. and sippy cups.

the perfect thing...
my mom's silver serving tray.
pretty enough to leave on the counter.
everyone always knows where to find their drink.

happy friday.

our spring chick.

her skin and sweet breath smells like a fresh pastry.
our little spring chick.
love her.

housewarming pie party.

it took 4 months.
a great contractor.
lots of friends.
and family.
two housewarming pie parties.
and we are officially here.

we had all our favorite pies. 

friends wrote their definition of "home" to add to our garland.

and I made maps to guide guests through the little details of our home.

I'm pretty sure this makes it official.
I believe the house is now warm.

go marlins!

today was trent's first tee- ball game.

tom was an all star coach.

and trent was an all star base runner. 

the girls were cheering.

we were all so proud.

he paced himself.

and made sure not to take it too seriously.

I'd say he really got to know the field. 

it was a great game. we all had a ball!

our pizza.

our favorite pizza:
sami's millet and flax tortillas.
organic jar tomato sauce
organic chicken sausage and kalamata olives and rosemary
(or bacon and pineapple and basil
or eggplant and sundried tomatoes
or bbq sauce and chicken)
cooking at 400 for about 8 minutes.
