On Sunday we were so tired...

After church I took a little tiny nap and then I was a Chef the rest of the day.
We have had a surplus of eggs and blueberries since our visit to Costco and so I tried Blueberry souffl├ęs. They turned out ok.

I started the dough for these cookies on Saturday and let it sit in the fridge for about a day and a half. The extra time apparently makes them better, I think it definitely helped in this case. These turned out fabulous.

On Saturday we went to...

The ward BBQ and to the park. Minna was away all day taking photos in Patchogue. I'm sure you'll see the fruits of her labor in the next week or so.

I didn't get any BBQ pics. I was busy enough feeding the girls and myself. It was a little easier to keep the girls contained at the park.

On Friday I was not in the office

I went to Governor's Island. I wanted to take some kite photos but it just wasn't the right conditions. So I watched Minna take photos of the girls, and enjoyed the view and the relaxed atmosphere only 800 yards from one of the busiest financial districts in the world.

Check out Minna's photos here and here

Our bike ride tonight

Sometimes it is more work than fun, to have fun. Tonight it was about 50/50. Minna left on her run and we were going to meet at the store. Just after she left Hannah decided that she didn't want to wear her helmet. After negotiating her helmet back on and finally getting the trailer into an elevator that was empty we were on our way. Which was probably 30 minutes after I intended to leave. When Minna finally found us I swear she was about to call 911.

But once we got going it was all worth it. I had fun taking pictures while biking.

Hannah as a plastic bowl because she was sick yesterday and this morning. She threw up yesterday and she'd had a bowl as a constant companion. Don't they look cute in their helmets!

We're pretty sure she doesn't need the bowl anymore, but I think having it makes her feel important. Tonight, as I tucked her in bed, her final goodnight request was, "Can I have a water and a bowl."

Jane had fun too.

I took this photo seconds after I took the above photo.

Photos from above

The first few days produced such nice weather there was not enough wind to fly my rig with my little kite. But finally at the end of the week there was enough wind. The album has the best of the photos.

Unfortunately we had another hard drive issue while away. The laptop drive went completely out. It was backed-up except for about 100 of my kite photography photos which I had just downloaded. Then it went out. I'm very sad about the loss because there were also some fun photos of Minna taking photos. These are the rest of the photos taken from the rest of the week that I didn't download on to the laptop.

This is the house we stay in every year. As you can see it is right on the beach. We look out the window and see the beach. We walk out the door and we're on the beach. It's amazing.

Here we are.

We're back from Cannon Beach!
