So when I turned on Blue's Clues last week, and he grabbed a story book and ran upstairs, I was surprised. I mean, come on...it's Blue! And Steve! And Tickety Tock!
I followed him upstairs, where I found him like this. It took me a moment to figure out what he was doing:
Now I just need to find him a green-striped polo shirt.

My baby sister's play was last week. I wrote about it a few weeks ago--and about how...excited...I was to see it. It mostly lived up to my expectations. Mostly, that is, except for my sister. She was goooood [not that I didn't expect her to be good. I just didn't know she'd be that good.]. I'm proud of her. My pictures of the show are atrocious. My camera is...inexpensive. But I'm posting the photos anyway. BWAHAHAHA!

Note: Not my actual cookies. I made a whole lotta cookies yesterday. Well...not hundreds, but still more than I usually bake in a day. Five or six dozen, maybe...? Some chocolate chip/dried cranberries, some chocolate chip/butterscotch chip, and some pineapple cake mix. Hungry yet? They're for a baptism at the church tonight. Friday evening isn't the usual time to hold a baptism, so there might not be many people there. But then again, there could be tons of people. We usually get a pretty good turnout at convert baptisms. So...will we have too many cookies or too few? (I seriously doubt that we'll have exactly [or close to] the right number of cookies. Murphy's Law, or something like that.) Hmm. I'm hoping for too many. Yum.

My parents have this big trampoline that Little Boy loves. We went out there the other day, and...wait, what is that all over the trampoline?everything. It's just part of living in a wet climate. Weird, huh? But my guess is that there's something strange about wherever you live, too.

Last weekend, we visited the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. It's a spring tradition in my family, but I haven't been in a few years. I've missed it. Little Boy wasn't sure what the big deal was. These purple & yellow ones were my favorite. I wish I could remember what variety they were. "Yellow Cheerfulness." How perfect is that? We'll definitely be back next year.
