The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 28

The Good:
I'm in Portland! Ronan turned one yesterday!! But before we celebrated the little guy, we had a great time making fresh raspberry jam. Noam was such a good helper and it just means, I will have to come back in a few months to taste it. 

 The Random:
3.5 is a hoot and a half. While we were at the Japanese Gardens on Friday when I arrived he was posing with the dragon (lion?) and shouting "GO RED SOX" - that's my nephew!!

The Fun:
Last Sunday before I headed out west, I went on a nice hike in a nature preserve about 10 miles outside of town. I needed a dose of nature and this was just what I needed. I climbed a nice rocky outcrop towards the end of the hike and was feeling like I was on top of the world!

Pulled up your blog this morning and was pretty sure I commented - but apparently I didn't. It would appear that you and the little fellas are having a wonderful visit. You have to qualify as Auntie-extraordinar - so I'm not surprised at your little mini-me Red Sox fan. :)

Mmmm, raspberry jam! Glad you are able to visit your family! And it looks like you are having a great time! It is hard to believe Ronan is one already!
