bree_rh We crossed the murky water over a haphazard bridge of river rock and picked our way through a narrow path lined with blackberry brambles. On the other side we found a cove, quiet and still. Geese honked, silver fish splashed, and herons flew above. I sat on a small fishing platform and felt amazed, again, by this place. As we walked back out we were greeted by two sea lions swimming in the Willamette and chasing the spring run of salmon. #PNW #pnwonderland #pacificnorthwest #stopshowingofforegon 1d

bree_rh I'm not sure who was having the better time Leif or Greta. Moments like these are nearly enough to chase the icks and the blues away. 3d

bree_rh This is what the stomach flu looks like when you have kids and both parents are down for the count. Of course Greta, who was patient zero, is seemingly all fine now. Full of smiles and laughs. 4d
  •   bythebrooke88 Oh that's terrible! And look how cute and pleased she looks! Love that fuzzy hair. 4d
  •   suite994 Feel better you guys. 4d
  •   writenatalie Not nice. Not nice at all. 4d
  •   jeramie_joy The WORST. 4d
  •   jmerandy Oh no!!!! Not the flu! You're little Greta could put a smile on anyone's face though! 4d
  •   renelralston Ughhhhjj 4d
  •   erisr23 Before I could read any of the comments I thought, "bree does not look amused." now i understand why. But Greta. I mean... 4d

bree_rh Yesterday Goosers turned 8 months old and just last week she started signing for milk. Every time I see those little hands-a-flapping letting me know she wants milk my heart does a flip flop and I just can't handle how much I love her. Even though being mama means I'm number one in Greta's eyes right now her sister is a close second. Despite the sometimes rough treatment she receives from her big sis she gives Clio the best laughs of any one. // On the crawling front it doesn't seem like that is going to be happening too soon. She's much too content to be carried around and held to worry about crawling. She is still my tiny little barnacle. Not that I am complaining really. Knowing that in all likelihood we won't be having anymore children makes me in no hurry to see her grow up. I just want to hold her and capture this time period so that when she is all grown up and gone from our home I can close my eyes and see my sweet girl with the fluffy white hair and gummy grin. 1w

bree_rh My parents recently celebrated 42 years of marriage. We were lucky enough to celebrate with them at a beautiful restaurant was a beautiful view of Mount Hood. I feel pretty lucky to have these two as my parents. I'm sure @leesarae would agree. 1w

  •   sarasuechandler Congrats to them!!!! Love those two! 1w

bree_rh On the recommendation from @kristidoespdx blog we went to Camassia Natural Area for a hike through wild flowers today. None of my photos did it justice. Absolutely beautiful. 1w
  •   kristidoespdx Yeah! Glad you liked it. I hope Cleo (or is that Elsa?) liked it too. I would have loved the boardwalk paths when I was a kid. 1w

bree_rh Leif walked around the playground for an hour with Clio's pink ribbon wand sticking out from his back pocket. It is a silly thing, really, but it made me so grateful (for the millionth time) that I am married to him. He is always present and involved with his daughters. Even if that means pink ribbon wands or reading fairy books or playing princesses. He is a good man and I hope so much for my daughters that they one day find a partner who is as supportive and loving as their papa. 1w

  •   realmexquisite Every time I'm grateful for Alex as my own partner, or for Leif and Aaron as brothers/uncles, I find myself filled with gratitude also for their own dad who so clearly instilled in his sons so many of his qualities. Such self sacrifice, generosity, lightheartedness, sincerity and outstanding work ethic. And yet still I'm stumped: How did he and Tricia manage to raise such boys?! Good, good men. 1w
  •   bree_rh @realmexquisite : Tricia and Eric are amazing (I miss them) parents. You'd think at least one of the three boys would have had at least one major issue strictly speaking from statistics but nope. They are all great. Amazing. 1w
  •   realmexquisite Yeah. @bree_rh It's kind of weird. ;) 1w
  •   airrainzz Oh you sister-in-laws and the way you express your loving thoughts with such eloquence... 1w

bree_rh At this exact moment I am laying on a futon next to a sleeping Clio. She's snoring. I'm wearing earplugs. So much noise from such a small body. // We are at my work getting her a sleep study. For an hour she patiently let someone get her wired up to look like this. Then I told her to go to sleep. And she did. Whoa. It took thirty minutes but she actually did. I am seriously so proud. // The results of tonight's sleep study will tell us if she needs to have her tonsils and adenoids out because she is having apnea in her sleep. I already know the answer I think. // I know tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies are routine but it still freaks me out. 2w

bree_rh I freely admit that I have an addiction to taking photos of my children. I just can't stop. Because just look at this baby. Those cheeks. That hair. Swoon. 4w
