Summer 2009...so far

Outdoor concerts in the grass, preferably salsa.

Dumb-looking visors.
Am I the only one on the west coast who wears these any more? Well, just me and the old Vietnamese ladies who I see in the grocery store.

The west coast, specifically Cannon Beach

Munchkins in cherry trees.

Slip-n-slides.

Girls in bikinis and the boy who loves them.

Overalls with no shirt and no shoes.

Reading books in the backyard.

Portland Pathways, a favorite thing about this city.

Lemonade stands.


Cool Oregon rivers.

Visiting Uncle Mike and Cousin Adam at basketball camp.

Bike-rides here, in our favorite cemetery.

Sunglasses.

Anniversaries.

Pointing out and yelling at the moon while swimming with Elvis-hair.

These photos are terrific. Abe just gets cuter and more involved in the world every day.

Chris and Jess said...

That Abe Rooney is so adorable, I could look at pics of him all day. My personal fave is the bike helmet, hands clasped, Jello Pudding grin. Priceless.

emily said...

Very nice update. He gets cuter and cuter.

Lori said...

I love seeing new pictures. First, I love your water shirt! Need one!

Second, I LOVE being in cemetaries. Everyone thinks I'm nuts... It's so calming to me and crisp.

That Abe is just beautiful! Like his Momma!

PVZ said...

Sorry, but yes it is just you, the Vietnamese ladies there and the Korean ladies here in La Crescenta with the visors. When I was a kid there were two cemetaries in our little town that I always rode my bike to your cemetary looks even nicer though.
