Yep, another camping post. Because Leo had such fun on his first camping trip, we went on another one for Father's Day. This time we camped at Salmon River with just my sister and her boyfriend. We found an ideal spot right next to the river and enjoyed chili and cornbread around a cozy campfire, swinging in the hammock, and of course exploring. The next morning we had oatmeal with fruit plus mimosas and coffee. Perfect! Oregon is such a special place, and we are so happy that we made the choice to live here. I hope your Father's Day was a good one too!

A couple weekends ago we took Leo on his first ever camping trip. We were a little worried about if he would sleep through the night in such a strange setting, but he did great! (Besides waking up at 5:15am with the sun.) We went with my sister and her boyfriend, our friends Tom and Ali, and their friends Jill and Ryan and their daughter Grace. It was a great group of people to spend the weekend with. We spent our days walking down to the river, eating around the campfire and watching the littles play together. I have so many wonderful memories of camping trips with my mom and dad. It's amazing to experience it from the other side and watch our son make all these fantastic discoveries for himself. Now we know that Leo can camp like a champ we are excited to plan our next trip. 

Leo's First Birthday Party

I wanted to share some photos of Leo's first birthday party. He's now almost one and a half! But I was looking through these photos and missing our San Francisco friends, so here it is. Better late than never! 
We celebrated with a bunch of our favorite people at a local park. The weather could not have been better for our "jungle soiree" and no one could believe how warm it was for January. With the sun shining we enjoyed BBQ, beers and lots of laughs. 
When it was time for Leo to have his "smash cupcake" he promptly smashed it right in to the ground. I guess he didn't care that I was up until 1am baking and decorating them. Kids these days! *wink* 
I'm a little bummed that I didn't get more pictures of our cute set up. I bought a couple of hula skirts and attached them to the edge of a 6' table, then covered the top with burlap to create a safari mood and added a colorful bunch of animal print balloons. 
For party gifts my husband had custom made kendama's created that said "Leo's 1st Birthday" and an image of a lion on them. What's a kendama? It's a Japanese wooden ball-in-cup toy. That's Jake holding one in the last photo. Interested? You can get your very own by visiting our shop: Deal With It  

Weaving with Cultivate Portland

Last Thursday I was lucky enough to be able to attend the first ever workshop put on by Cultivate Portland. I have been wanting to learn how to weave for a few months now, ever since stumbling on to some super creative weavers on Instagram, like Mary Anne Moodie and Wallflower Weavings. Cultivate Portland was hosted at Tillamook Station and dreamed up by three lovely ladies, Aspen Summit, Jeannie Helzer, and Wild Wood and Firth. We spent a few hours learning how to weave with good drinks, great food, and loads of inspiration! I left the evening with a tote bag filled with goodies and some new weaving buddies. I'm excited to share my weaving journey with you all here. 


Before we left for Portland, we were kindly gifted a membership to the San Francisco Zoo from my aunt and uncle for the holidays. The Zoo is obviously a fun way to spend the day, especially with a small person who finds wonder and amazement in everything. We saw lions, tigers and bears (oh my!) as well as otters, penguins, a rhino and an ant eater. But Leo's favorite part of the day was at the farmhouse petting zoo. I think he could have spent hours just following the goats and sheep around and trying to pet them. He was on the move the entire time and hardly let me snap a pic. We can't wait to visit the Portland Zoo and all the other amazing sites here in our new city.
