Hurrah. Brian finally arrived from Washington today! We have a place to live too. Everything is falling into place.

a husband?

Here is an interesting conversation we had today.

Addie: My husband is walking in the woods.

Me: Oh.

Addie: He is not in the car.

Me: Oh. Who is your husband?

Addie: I don't know.

I then tried to explain to her what a husband was. After the conversation all she indicated was that she didn't know who her husband was, but she left him in Issaquah.

Blueberry Picking

Today we took my mom blueberry picking at Nourse Farm. We picked 7 pounds of berries. Not counting of course the amount Addie ate as she picked. We picked for about 15 minutes before I thought to check Addie's bucket for berries. Of course it was completely empty. After a lot of encouragement Addie finally put some in her bucket. (of course her belly was probably full by then) I plan to make blueberry buckle this afternoon after naptime.

We spent a week in Maine at my parents house. It was quite nice. I got my seafood fix and Addie immersed herself in lots and lots of sand. We went to the beach numerous times, took a few walks/hikes and picked some wild blueberries. Edith put her feet in the Atlantic for the first time and also enjoyed the sand. She loved to touch it and eat it.

We all went to Bar Harbor to enjoy the fireworks. Addie did really well but after 15 minutes thought that was enough and didn't bother watching them anymore. Edith stayed up to see them as well. She loved every minute of them even though she was exhausted.
I really noticed how Addie was trying very hard to learn some new words while we were there. She kept practicing and repeatedly asking us about bouys. Now she knows (maybe) about bouys, kayaks, mussels, and some other things.
