This last weekend we had amazing weather and we spent a lot of time outside and a lot of time spoiling Bennett, since these are his last days of being an only's pretty obvious that he's feeling insecure about this big change that's going to happen, but he's also excited to meet his little brother.
Needless to say I'm still pregnant. 
I technically have a week left but I really think it's going to be sooner!
I'll keep you updated!

We had a family movie night.
The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars (not as good as the original)
and homemade stovetop popcorn:
I baked. A lot.
(what's the point to measuring vanilla...always overestimate)
had some Dole whip covered in juicy fresh fruit:
I made these energy bites again:
(I made a double batch and froze them for once little brother gets here. 
I'm sure we will need all the energy we can get)
Lauren and Fern came over. I'm convinced they will get married...or maybe Fern will be more of little brother's type. Maybe little brother will like older women. 
(Chris and Craig did go for older ladies afterall)
For date night we decided to grab the spiciest thing we could think of.
Spicy fish sauce wings from Pok Pok Noi!
("spicy" is an understatement. I don't like spicy food but these are amazing and I was willing to eat them for a good cause...trying to vacate little brother!)
Were we in PDX  or did we go to Thailand for the evening?
Before I eat the wings I layer on the chapstick for extra protection 
and I always end up eating all of the cold veggies: 
(after rubbing them all over my lips, eating every last ice cube and grain of rice)
 (did I mention I'm a spicy food wuss?) 
"did we just induce labor?!"
What better way to counteract spiciness than with some ice cream from Salt and Straw:
Obviously, the spiciness did not do it's job, but that's the sacrifice I was willing to make.

We spent the rest of the weekend outside playing and being crafty:
a wagon ride before bed:
finishing up nursery projects:
(painting an arrow)
(Chris definitely had to tape that up with his engineering skills)
I pulled out my sewing machine:
and the boys pulled out their tank tops:
Strawberry lemonade and arnold palmers definitely happened:
(if you have a costco membership you need to get these pitchers...they are amazing and there is a coupon right now!)
Oh yeah, back to the nursery...

there's the finished arrow:
and I made the triangles into a mobile:
Our cherry trees seemed to blossom over night:
and we spent some time under them coloring with sidewalk chalk and running around:
And that was our lovely weekend.
(and Portland is back to the rain)

Happy Wednesday Friends!

    Oh I watched The Brave Little Toaster when I was a child :)
    B looks so cool with his tank top and the sunglasses.

    Oh how I love those two little people. That picture of B & Fern is totally my favorite :). Also...that arrow turned out awesome and I love that Chris measured it out perfectly...of course :).

    Also...hurry up and get here Buckley!! We're all anxiously awaiting your arrival!

    I love how you "measure" vanilla-I do the same! More vanilla is always better. And I love that mobile!! You ran that through your sewing machine??
