To kick off our Spring Break vacation last week (more photos of that to come), we went and saw Wicked. I LOVED it. I am such a sucker for musicals and this one did not disappoint. The music was so catchy, the story was so clever. I just loved it, loved it. It made me want to do a little dance when it was over. Plus, dates sans children are few and far between these days and it's always nice to feel like I can sit through something without stopping every few minutes to dig for a distraction from the magical diaper bag. Thanks for another great date Justin!

Something New to Look At

I needed something new to look at, I couldn't look at those pictures of me anymore. This is much cuter. We had to get Davis a hat and tie, I mean, what is cuter than a baby in a tie. Who says boys are no fun to dress!

Caution - Majorly Superficial Post

I have an issue. It involves my ability to deal with the status quo. I love change. I love change of scenery, weather, apartments, and mostly hairstyle. Those of you who have known me for a long time, have seen the many different colors and styles that my hair has been over the years. Some on purpose and some not. Well, I've reached this time in my life again when I am itching for a new "do". This is the first time in a long time that I've had long hair and I've never had it long and dark before. Justin thinks I should leave it for a while, I am back and forth on the subject. I have a hair appointment in a few days and whenever I go in undecided, something drastic occurs. I am putting this out there for public opinion (because I know none of you have more important things to think about :) Here are a few examples:

My hair now. . . 

Brown with bangs
short and blonde
medium and blonde
shortish and blonde
I couldn't find a picture of the black hair with purple highlights but I don't think that hairstyle is currently being considered. So, what should I do?

Lou Lou Turns 5!

Emma has been asking to go camping for her birthday for 3 years in a row. We've had to explain to her that camping in Portland in March would really not be that fun. But since it was the "family party" year, we decided that we could camp at home. We made a "camping" cake (scene), a paper campfire and even pulled out the girls beach tents for sleeping. Justin and I slept out "under the stars". It was so much fun and Emma was thrilled. After hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner, we "roasted" marshmallows, ate cake and ice cream and then watched Planet Earth in the tents. It was a great birthday Emma - we love you!

The Cake - Justin took the scrap cake pieces and constructed the hill, complete with edible grass, gummy centipedes and spiders.

Getting ready for bed . . . 
It looks like they really think they'll roast if they hold them there long enough.
Emma made that hat herself, just in case anyone didn't know it was her birthday!

Itzhak Perlman

For Valentine's Day Justin gave me (us) tickets to see Itzhak Perlman with the Oregon Symphony. It was just this last Monday. Oh my goodness, it was so fun. I love the symphony anyway and to see Itzhak Perlman in person was amazing. We had a great time - thanks honey, you are a great date! 

Here's a little ear candy for you:
