The Seattle waterfront.  The boys and I are riding the ferris wheel on the pier, and this is our view!

After a couple of rotations on the ferris wheel, we started gettings used to the motion and heights--kind of.

Here is beautiful Sammy.  This old gal is funny around pictures.  I'm lucky to get a non-blurry shot of her.

Here is gorgeous Odin.  He's always up for a photo session and a dance.  He's my special boy.

Vino at the Landing in Renton, WA.  I had lunch with a sweet friend.  Delicious chocolates to finish off the meal.

Mateo at afterschool pick-up yesterday.  He looks for us then follows up with a big hug.

Tomas at afterschool pick-up yesterday.  He comes running out of the building to surprise us from behind.

Just a quick still life on our kitchen table.  We really need to eat those satsumas before they go bad.

Lately, my thoughts and life have been pretty random (as you can tell by the photos).  It's my younger son Tomas's birthday!  He is officially 8 as of February 28.  He was sad for a bit in the morning because he wasn't going to be 7 anymore.  That's my fault for lamenting out loud that he's growing up too fast.  Well, what is a mama to do?  At 6am, all I could think of to cheer him up was that it will be fun to write the number 8 after his name: "Tomas, Age 8" which is what I used to do when I was a kid.  I would write "Charmaine, Age 8" on my books and wide-ruled paper.

For the weekend, we are heading to Whistler, B.C. to celebrate Tomas's special day with family.  It will be a time to relax, snowshoe, ski, snowboard, and eat.  I can't wait.  I also can't wait for the long drive.  We love hitting the road.  Good music.  Great conversation.  Camp-style snacking.  My stash of books and my journal.  Our pillows for napping.  It's going to be a great weekend.
