Happy Birthday

to Baxter. Andy may have made up your birth date, but he takes it very seriously. I think that you are naughty a lot, but I still like you. Happy Birthday. Now get in your bed and think about what you've done!

Missing the Whales

This time last year, we were on the whale and puffin tour (well, in a couple of weeks). Maine is nice, but Bar Harbor is a great tiny town. We went two years in a row - me and Kate, bringing her sister the first year and my sister the next. We went antiquing, watched movies, drank beers, and walked an astonishing amount. We went so I could see the puffins, in real life. And, during the second year, I did see them.
But we saw whales too! I had seen Beluga whales at the Aquarium, and they look more like sea cows to me, so seeing the mama and baby humpbacks were exciting! They were so big, and it was so calm and everyone on the boat was excited!
And that night we went to a bar that served tater tots. So, tater tots + beer+ whales + puffins + lots of antiques = happy happy happy.

Baby Ryan Wulff! One month old! Big brother Liam has just turned the big 0-5! So, it's an exciting time around these parts. And Mr. Colin, the middle child, is talking up a storm! I'm so happy to meet my new friend Ryan and welcome her into the world! She's a cutie!

Wedding Rings!

We have been shop shop shopping for wedding bands and the two things I know for sure is:

1) I know nothing about jewelry or metal or rings
2) Jewelry is hella expensive.

But you'll wear 'em forever, so you have to figure out what you like and what is for real and what is weird to you...and it's a lot of discussion in the very well-lit jewelry store...
So, we're thinking of these ones, made by a lady in Oregon. Awesome. Weird and awesome.

Sesame Street: ABC Song with Tilly and the Wall

My nephew, James, loves to sit on a grownup's lap and watch Sesame Street songs. This Alphabet Song by Tilly and the Wall is pretty awesome - although I like India Arie with Elmo's version too!
So, watch it and be happy! Their outfits alone are enough to make you smile!
